hopping down the bunny trail...

I have to share some of the cuteness that has been making its way into and out of our home lately...

First up, aren't these mason jar bunnies so cute??! I got the inspiration from pinterest, but tweaked ours a bit to use what I had on hand. I spray painted the lids with
Krylon Ocean Breeze (looooooove that shade!) and added a scrapbook paper circle to finish out the top.
I love that everything is edible in these jars! Yes, even the grass!
Grace was excited to give these to her teachers and I think they were equally excited to receive them.It almost made up for the fact that I completely forgot today was "SOAR HIGH with your red, white, and blue" in honor of the older elementary students that are taking standardized tests this week. Oops!And oh my, I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this bunny that Hudson made in MDO yesterday. L.O.V.E. I'll take this kind of art over expensive fancy art anyday!The little pumpkin came home with this sweet popsicle-ears bunny Monday. Isn't it precious? And the grass!!!!!! Eeeek! I know preschool teachers have a super hard job, but oh my, the artwork is out of this world!! Love it all!This is a drawing she did last year...he he he...it's an Easter frog, bunny, and lamb, I believe...I love to see how much her drawing and writing have improved.Opening my littles' backpacks is like a little gift everyday. I love seeing their creativity come to life through art.Thank you Mrs. Bryan, Mrs. Peterson, Mrs. Patti and Mrs. Maria for all the work you put into nurturing Grace and Hudson and all the sweet littles that are blessed to be in your classrooms.Monday I sent these little "spring nests and carrots" snacks (sheet cookies, Cadbury eggs, edible grass, and a string cheese for the carrot) to the little pumpkin's preschool. Yes, I know bunnies don't have nests, but I liked the cookies better than chocolate chicks...you could always substitute a chick peep! They got a kick out of finding out you could eat everything except the cupcake liner and it was sort of educational because they could tally up who liked eating the grass and who didn't (comparisons, more than, less than, graphing, etc.). Oh and the outfit was our interpretation of "ROCKIN' THE TEST rock-n-roll" day, using what we had ready to go. Yes, thrown together at the last minute, but the little pumpkin loved adding the tights and shoes :)Tomorrow both Grace & Hudson have their Easter Egg Hunts at school - can't wait! And you know what I'm excited about? Today, I totally lucked out when I found the matching pair of shorts to {this} sweet shirt/vest for Hudson, yes, the only pair left in his size......and for $11! Because let me tell you, it is HOT! I don't know what happened to Spring but it feels like Summer.I'm off to make "bunny bait" favors for Hudson's class party {inspiration via here and here}...
