New Pet!

OK, get ready for picture overload of utter cuteness!  :)  We got a BUNNY at the end of February. He is a mini Rex, and his name is Cappy (short for Captain America).  He has grown SO FAST in just a couple week, I can hardly believe it!  He has such a sweet personality, and even though bunnies are not very snuggly, he likes to sleep on my lap, and I love it!

The cats were not so sure at first...Oreo just wanted to play, but I think Pepper wanted lunch!

Cappy didn't care about the cats...he was just curious!

See, doesn't Pepper look like he wants to eat him??

I love this picture, for so many reasons :)

Daisy definitely wants to eat him...even all this time later, Daisy goes NUTS if Cappy is out, so we have to keep them in separate rooms.  If he is in his cage, Daisy will just chill on the floor...but instinct is too strong when he is out, especially if Cappy is on the floor!

This is how Cappy sleeps a lot of the time...and it is SO CUTE!

Look how little he was!!!

Getting bigger!

In this picture I think he is twice the size he was when we first got him!

We had a pizza and game night at our house for CMU students, and this girl raised bunnies, and she showed us this trick...I have never seen anything like it!  I called her the bunny whisperer :)

I mean, seriously, how bizarre and cute is this all at the same time??

Are you sick of bunny photos yet??  Sorry if you are...I just couldn't decide which ones to post because they were all so adorable!!

More Random Pictures

I went with Titus and his class in February to a special presentation by the Grand Rapids Symphony for 5th grade students.  It was VERY well done and I was super impressed.  I am so thankful for the opportunity, and it has been too long since I have gone to a symphony or something like this.  Titus really liked it, too, which I figured since he loves music.

Friends of ours that attend our church own a quilt shop in Mt Pleasant, and every month they have a special kids project.  I knew both kids would love it, so I signed them up and away we went.  At first Titus was NOT happy with me...I think because of the stigma that sewing is for girls, which is so far from true...and by the end he was apologizing for his attitude and can't wait to sew other things!  Both kids had a great time, and they did such a wonderful job!

Titus with his scarf, making a silly face :)

Damaris with her scarf

I found Oreo one morning with a huge gash in her stomach, and so she had to wear this cone for a week while it healed was pretty funny, even though I felt bad for her!

She had such a hard time eating and drinking at first...poor thing!

I usually find some random pictures on my camera every time I download pictures, and I thought these were funny, so I had to share:

Damaris took this picture...I love it!  It is super artistic, and a great shot.

A bit crooked, but she did a great job with this one, too!  She caught the sun just right.

Date Night

Stephen and I had a super fun date night for Valentine's Day...we did something completely different - we went to a Canvas Night at a photography studio just 5 miles away.  It was nice to do something completely new to both of us, even though neither one of us are artists :)

Stephen hard at work

I chose to go with COMPLETELY different colors than everyone else by mixing my colors together.  It was risky, but I liked the tones!

This was my favorite one of the night...she is the only other one that mixed colors like I did...hers turned out GORGEOUS.  Too bad we couldn't swap :)

Our finished products!!

Baby Darlah!

Stephen's sister Bethany and her husband Aaron had their baby on Friday, February 10th!  They had a baby girl, and they named her Darlah Eden Joy.  Stephen went down on Friday for the surgery since it was high risk, and then all of us went down on the 11th to see her.

She is perfect!!
