Butterscotch & Hopscotch

It's Easter season and along with MUCH more meaningful things that meant it was time once again to visit the bunnies for our annual Easter picture. I know I've already done this in a previous post, but I just can't help a little stroll down memory lane...



And Ta-Da. This is obviously a picture of a picture (I don't have a scanner) but you get the idea. These two were as cooperative as they could be and VERY excited to hold Butterscotch and Hopscotch. Last year Wyatt was a little scared of his bunny but not this year!! They have talked about their bunny buddies a lot. And I love this little treasure.
I tried on their clothes the day before and realized that the shirts I bought at TJ Max about a month prior were HUGE on both of them. So, on Sat. I proceeded to visit every TJ Max in the greater Dallas area (and I am sure spent more on gas than the shirts cost combined) only to relearn the great lesson any bargain shopper knows, which is if you find a treasure at a steal of a price, buy it, but don't expect to return three weeks later to find any signs of a 3T left...or something like that. That "great lesson" sounded a lot better in my head. Anywhoo I washed the little gems on super hot a couple of times and said forget it. So if you see my kids on Easter wearing shirts that resemble your grandpa's pajamas or if you notice three years from now they are still wearing the same shirts now you know why. And I am sure you are THRILLED that I took the time to retell that CAPTIVATING story! Somebody call the Pulitzer Police...because I write bad stories...get it.

I leave you with Stacey and Wyatt's riveting rendition of "Three Places" or "Two Places" as we like to call ours - this exhibit at Northpark.

So cultured.
