The bunnies. Look calm huh? Don't turn your back. They'll chew anything. I mean ANYTHING. Which is exactly why they've gone to the bunny-sitter.

Hmmmmmm, I wonder if the kids will eat all their ice-cream????

Yup. I guess so.

We spared no expense on this years Christmas Tree.

Eureka's Christmas present came early, in the form of chicken pox.

Which basically translated into bean bags. Chicken pox, bean bags. Sounds fair to me!

When the bean bags wore off, I bought the kids a trampoline.

Birthday Pinata

On your 5th birthday here in Garland County, one can get their own library card. One can also pay her own late fines.
