Bunny Bowling

They all have different faces.

I found this pattern online and thought it was really cute.

I thought Jackson would enjoy knocking down some bunnies as he gets a little bigger. I used a bunch of scrap material that I have had hanging around. I think they turned out great.

A visit to the farm

Recently we visited an open house at an Amish farm belonging to a friend of ours, it was good fun for the kids to see all of the animals, and get to play with them. There were a ton of baby lambs, the kids got to hold them and pet them. We saw horses, rabbits, cows, pigs,and chickens. The kids got to hold baby chicks, and watch a demo of sheep herding. It was neat to see all of the things they use on the farm too. We will look forward to doing that again next year.

Guess who's 1?

We just had Jackson's first birthday this weekend. I can't believe it has already been a year. We had a little party on the 13th (even though his birthday is the 14th). John and the kids did a preformance of "Jackson and the Beanstock" for a puppet show. It was so funny, and all of the guests just laughed and really enjoyed it. We asked that in place of other gifts, people make a puppet for Jackson, so he got quite a variety of different types of puppets. It was really quite fun. Of course he had his own little cake, and made a mess of himself too.
