A Surprise Visitor

Saturday evening brought a surprise visitor to our house. Isn't he just the cutest little thing though?
Yep - the Easter Bunny came to call here! He lives up the street from us with friends, Al and Patti and their family. Patti had phoned me the other day to ask if I thought Maya would like to see a "real" bunny, cause they had one at their place and I thought this would be a really nice surprise to have the Bunny come calling.
Here's Maya -checking that little bunny out. (Pay no attention to all the background rubble in these photos -sometimes, there's even more junk sitting on that chest in front of the window!)
Maya wasn't quite sure though if she wanted to hold him -or even touch him -at first, but she soon got over that little bit of fear!
He sure was a nice, soft and very friendly little visitor as Maya quickly found out!
Kurtis and even Katie had to check out this little furry fellow too!
Many, many thanks to Patti for bringing the bunny down for a visit. Both the kids enjoyed that -especially Maya!

And thanks to all of my blogging friends too for the kind words yesterday when I was not having the best of days. I managed to get about five and a half hours of sleep -totally uninterrupted, I might add -and felt much better after that. But all the blogger good wishes sure helped a lot, ya know!

Now, it's time for me to get dressed and ready to head out early this morning for the sunrise services and Easter breakfast this morning at our church. I have to confess, I haven't been to a Sunrise service in many, many years! As many of you know, frequently I'm just hitting the old sack at this time of day -not up, getting ready to venture out. And the Easter breakfast -well I don't think I've managed to get to services for that since my kids were really little and we all know, that was a long, long time ago!

Hope all of you have a very Happy Easter now too. Hope the Easter Bunny won't have too much trouble getting around here with all the snow we got yesterday too. Sure will help HIM to hide won't it?

Happy Easter Jeni and family

great photos, I love Maya's expressions.

I hope sunrise service gave you a beautiful feeling inside and the lift in spirits you so deserve.

Hugs from my little brood of crazies to all of you.

Sorry you have been feeling crap, if I was your side of the pond I would definitely zip up your social life. I wonder if your in travel distance when I am over?

anyways the bunny is very cute, but I would still rather eat one :)

What a great treat for Maya and for you too. Hopefully the bunny helped lift your spirits a bit.

I can relate to your post yesterday about the financial aspect. I don't care about being rich, but comfortable sure would be nice.

Hang in there, your blogging buddies are here for you.

Happy Easter

What a sweet little bunny to lighten up the spirit of the day! The kids look delighted.

Hang in there and glad you have a good start to your Easter!

What a fun surprise!

Glad to hear you got some sleep and are feeling better today. I could really sympathize. I was experiencing the blues for a couple days there too, but like you, a good night's sleep helped everything look a little better by this morning.

Jeni, I love your Easter Bunny...I had to come back and comment on the furry find of the year...just had to...we had a mini bunny named Silver (as in Hi Ho) who was a silvery grey confection and his best friend was our old English Sheepdog...I have photo's of Silver sleeping on Digby...what a pair those two were...Silver lived to the ripe old age of sixteen. We had to have his teeth filed (by the vet) a couple of times and his nails had to be trimmed weekly by us, but he was a sweetie!
