Have a great weekend!

  1. I wish Tasha was more clingy, but she likes her own space. The video should be called ” Some Bunny Loves You”. Have a beautiful, blessed Easter!

  2. I love all that extra attention. The only thing that can get bothersome, but is still too cute to stop, is how Miss Kiki wakes me up, around 4:00, in the mornings licking my face. Sometimes I just put the blankets over my face to stop her so I can go back to sleep for a little while.
