2008 Easter Day Parade

Have you ever seen such a cool vehicle?!! This was our entry in the Laughlin Air Force Base Easter Parade!! In case you can't tell it is a Bunny rabbit chasing a fishing pole with a carrot tied to the end... (it had buck teeth and whiskers and a tail, it was a pretty dope Mustang Bunny) Surprisingly it only took five jumbo bags of cotton balls! Thankfully Nicia is alot more creative than I am, it was only with her help that we were able to get it all together!! We got second... I think we lost some points for having a motor... Everyone else had wagons or bikes!! It was really fun, after the judging, we got to follow the parade route to the Easter Egg Hunt, where the kids had a blast scrambling for eggs and candy! (Jeff was very protective of his egg finding area, as you can see) Then of course we followed that fun up with cotton candy, hot dogs, popcorn and soda pop! It is our first Easter on our own, but the little ones don't seem to mind...

Which one is my husband?!!

Wow, Do you see the resemblence??! It's not often that you see wild ones like this out in Del Rio, Texas, but if you keep your eyes open and your cameras out... Sometimes you can snap a quick picture of one in his natural element!! I'm pretty sure this species is on the endangered list!!

The Easter Card Disaster

So every year I try to take pictures of my little ones at all the holidays, but since we have moved to Texas, I haven't been in the picture taking mood... So I got the bug today, and decided that since Easter is so close, I could take pictures to send out in Easter cards!! Wow, was I wrong!! As you can see to the left... My kiddos were in no mood for beautiful poses, they wanted to show me their funny faces!! (Those will not be going out in Easter cards, by the way!) But, we finally got a decent smile from both of them at the same time, and Easter is saved!! Cards were made, addressed and mailed out this morning, and I feel like a good mommy again... Now, if I could just remember when I fed them last... (Just kidding, I'm sure they got themselves breakfast eventually!)
