Here comes Peter Cottontail Hoppin down the Bunny Trail.......

Brunch Time.....Come join us.....

This is my family, we are Cottontail Rabbits, .......I live here with my sisters flopsy, mopsy and cotton-tail and my mom, you all know what happened to my dad, lets not even go there.....

This our home.....We all live underneath the roots of this very big old fir-tree stump ..........

Nice home huh, it's huge inside.....We call it a burrow.......

Good Mornin.....

CANDY CANDY CANDY eggs.... thats what they are lookin for.....

This is me, my name is Peter, Peter Rabbit that is, I am known around here as Peter Cottontail, you may have heard of me.....

This is Aunt Bess she is all about the carrots.....

Everyone is gathering at our place to look for candy Easter eggs and carrots.........YUMMY

These big roots help keep strangers out......

Mrs. S. found these little champagne flutes at the GW for 99 cents each then half off for only 49 cents each for 8 glasses, wow shes a good shopper.....


Those candy eggs are my favorite....

We have come a long way since I had that incident in the garden, I learned to stay away from
Mr. MCGREGOR'S garden......THATS for sure.......

We grow our own carrots now, Yummy

We've got most everything we need, we even have our own dishes made by WEDGEWOOD, could you believe it, they have our pictures on them, we all agree they are very special....

We are all over these dishes........ Did you see me?

I was so small then, Mom had to help me with she choking me HAK hak HAK ...Take your no no....

I love the way our story is told all around the dishes.....

and the cups too....we must be important....Do you have your own dishes...I don't think sooooo.....

The Carrot (yum) placecard holders are from a small antique store, notice the tiny little bunny on the top of the card, Mrs. S. does not seem too keen on writing names on those cards, Mr. S. doesn't understand that.

Mr. S. thinks this is great, he just loves our wonderful tree root home and actually helped make it so cozy and he loves all her dishes, I think thats because she loves them, what do you think.....he's the best...

Me again...doin what I do best....
