bunnies

Daddy had let the grass get a little "long", shall we say.  So long, in fact, that in some places it must have looked like a field.  A momma rabbit decided to up and maker her nest in the smack dab middle of our yard.  Daddy mowed on Monday, and came in and said, "Um, I just mowed over some sort of nest, and it's still moving."  So, we went out and took a peek, and we found 7 little bunnies STILL ALIVE!  Because of where it was in our yard, I  moved the nest to a safer place that we believed the momma liked to visit.


We kept watch, and didn't see her anywhere.  We got a little worried, so I went to a local wildlife place in town, and they told me to move them back to their original nest, and make sure that Winnie couldn't eat them :)  We did that, and that night, we saw momma bunny hopping her way to the nest! :)


After further reading, we found out that the momma bunny will come in the morning to feed, and then again at night. We have put some straw in places to see if it is moved in the morning, just to make sure she is still coming back for them!


We noticed this morning that some of their eyes are opened!  They are jumpy little buggers, too!


We brought them out of their next for a little exercise.  All they wanted to do was cuddle, so we put them back in their nest and buried them up for momma!


Yes, the girls have asked numerous times if we can keep one, and the answer still is, and will always be, NO :)

wedding, room, braces..

We went to a wedding rehearsal dinner last week at a beautiful garden in town.  Finn and I went on a little walk around looking for birds ;)




His quilt came in the mail this last week, so we are another step closer to finishing his room!



Avery got braces!  AHHHHHH!!!!!  


This little dude loves to cheese it up for the camera....and by the looks of his teeth, he's going to be in line for braces, too :)

stuff

finally got around to getting Finn's industrial curtains up :)



When we went to Lowes to get some of the hardware, Finn was blown away by the awesome riding lawn mowers!



Here is Finn's first time coloring! :)  He was so excited when he made a mark on the paper! :)


His first (of many) masterpieces :)


Liv put her headphones on him today....so so so adorable!

headphones on...world off... :)

Finn gets his ears fixed!

After meeting with 2 ENT's, it was decided that little mister needed some help.  He was having lots of ear infections, constant fluid on the ears, delayed speech, and did not pass his hearing tests.

So, today was the day.  We had to be at the surgery center at 6.  Daddy set his alarm for 4 am.... way way early!  He slept the whole way there!

On the 4th floor, overlooking the parking lot!


He had to wear a badge that said "patient"


walking to our room....the girls came with us because it was so very early, and I would never have asked anyone to come and babysit them :)


Room #22....



Finn got a matching wristband just like mommy and daddy!


He got to get dressed in a cute little gown with booties, too!  

When it was time for him to go back, around 7:10 am, I was able to go with him.  We walked into the operating room, and they had a nice big screen with Curious George on it.  There were nurses and the anesthesiologist there, and we sat Finn on the table.  They tried to see if he would put the gas mask on himself while sitting, but he was a tad freaked out about that.  So, we had him lay down, and that's when he got a little scared.  Good thing the gas takes effect in like 30 seconds.  It was hard to see his eyes roll back and him so lifeless, but it is what it is....I left him there with tears in my eyes....


about 15 minutes later, they took us to see him!  They told us that he could wake up super cranky or very cuddly....he woke up very cuddly, with a little bit of crabby coming through here and there.


We were so glad to be with him again!


After 10 minutes in recovery, back to room #22.  He was a tad crabby here because he wanted to walk and move around, and I had to hold him still...


We were discharged right away, about 8:15, and he had to sit in this little fun car that they have for older kiddos!


driving home..... Olivia fell asleep, and Avery had some fun!



Hopeful this is the answer for the problems we've been having with him!  Now, we get to pay for years and years and years..... :(

Wisconsin Trip

We just returned Saturday from a week long adventure in Wisconsin!

Our journey began last Monday morning, with an early trip to big town for an appt with a new ENT for Mr. Finn.   We couldn't leave town without a trip to Target (and lunch at noodles)!


From Big Town, it was a little over 5 hours to Nana and Bapa's.  Finn was the best little traveler!  He was in his car seat without getting out, for 6 hours!  He slept for almost the first half!  Very fortunate to have such a good little traveler!

First night in Bloomer....went out to look at Nana and Bapa's house progress, and then supper at Hardees with Nana, and visiting with Josh, Ellie, Grady and Addy.



Day 2...Bapa and Liv got out on the lake a bit!  Looks like she hasn't forgotten how to steer!



We had lunch together at Dairy Queen, and then off to a park to run off some energy!  FAMILY SELFIE! :)

Daddy went off to play a little golf, so the rest of us went up to the land for some lake time!

Mesa and Sophie love to be on the paddle boat!


Finn's first time out on the boat!  He loved it when I put his feet in the water!




These girls are such great navigators!!!

We tried some paddleboating as well!  Finn loves the water and didn't really understand why he couldn't jump in!



Tried to go in the kayak with Finn, but after we got off land, realized it was a little tipsy for us, so we turned right back!

Got cleaned up, and off to supper at Fat Boys pizza!  I did a super lousy job at this photoshop job, but this is Liv, our little Ninja Warrior!


SO SO SO yummy!



Finn is very interested in anything with wheels, so when he saw this, we had to sit on it a bit and try it out!


We met up with Josh, Ellie, Grady and Addy at McD's for ice cream!


















This was our home for the week!  Not as scary is we anticipated ;)



(One day in here, we had to take Avery to her allergy appointment, so that was a whole day adventure)


Next morning, Bohemian Ovens for the famous Oatmeal Pancakes!  YUMMY!!!!



We took the kids to the park for a little play time!  Grady loves rocks!









Later that night, we met up for supper at Rock Lake!


Ain't no shame.... i guess we do look alike!

We then went out to Nana and Bapa's land to take some family pictures!

All the Grandkids


The whole family!


Josh, Ellie, Grady and Addy


My sweet little family


Ellie and sweet little Addy!


Josh and Ellie surprised the kiddos with these fun shirts, so we had a quick picture inside of the Nana and Bapa's house (that is being built)


These 2 little boys are going to be such great friends!


Bapa Craig calls himself Crazy Old Fart all the time, so in celebration of his retirement, we made him up this sign :)



Next morning....back to Bohemian Ovens for more Oatmeal Cakes (while the boys went golfing)


Addy is such a great little baby, and has such a great little rat-tail :)



Lots of fun swimming at the pool!



Later that evening, they had a surprise birthday part for Avery at the park! :)

















Saturday morning....had to leave pretty early for a 2 hour trip to go to a family friends funeral.  Avery is very into selfies right now....


While we were back in my hometown, we drove by my old house.... :)


We had a reception at a legion that had this massive tank!  Of course, Finn loved it and we had to get a closer look!





We said all our goodbyes, and Daddy and I got some lunch for the road.....Rocky's....my day was made....it was beyond delicious!


5.5 more hours in the car.....ick!


Stopped half way home for a couple pics with this big green dude!



I love this pic of Liv.... :)




We made it home, picked up our Winnie (who enjoyed the week at a Canine Country club) , unpacked and were so excited to be sleeping in our own beds! :)
