Bunny House

This weekend we decided to put our awesome building skills to work and make a house for the Easter Bunny, because like Alexa says...he has to have house. Simple enough, right?

Well, not so much. We used a kit that was bought for last Easter...not sure if that has anything to do with the outcome but we are going to blame it on that anyway.

We had some broken walls and as much as Matt and I tried to rig something up to get them to stay, it just didn't work. From the looks on her face I think we crushed all her thoughts of "Daddy and Mommy can fix anything!"

It didn't stop us from having fun anyway. Alexa just might become a decorator someday...she was so precise on all the candy being in the perfect spot. Yes, that perfect spot also included her mouth. (Is year old candy bad for you?)


Finished product...she was so proud!
Any bunny would be happy to call this home, right!?

3 minutes later...

Good thing she was already on to something else and didn't mind much. :)

Oh, well, it was cute while it lasted. lol

Lourie said...

At least you got a picture of it before it crumbled. And fun was had. That is what counts.

Bethany said...

Cute idea. Too bad it fell apart.
Her expressions crack me up. You can totally tell what going on in her mind. Maybe she'll still be that transparent as a teen. :)

Kathryn said...

OH my gosh!! She is so cute..and her face is priceless!! I have tried to build those and they always break on my to =)

Katherine said...

Totally a blessing in a disguise! If it stayed all erect and pretty you wouldn't eat it! But now there's nothing standing in your way... you know besides that it's year old food. I'd eat it ;)

Tyler said...

I have never heard of an easter bunny house! Makes total sense though...what fun. Looks like she had a blast with it..even if it did crumble.. you got pics..thats what counts ;)

Katrina said...

Haha! Her face is priceless. So cute.

Kate said...

She is so adorable, Laura!! I like that little house - I wonder if I could find one around here for the children to work on.

Carrie said...

Looks like a fun project. You must have a TON of patience. And thank heavens for short attention spans, huh!?!

That is too cute! I've made gingerbread houses at Christmas, but never a bunny house! I better not mention this one to my boys....

Arizona Mamma said...

Did it just spontaneously collapse or what? Addyson is on my lap currently, and looked at the pics and said "I want that for dinner." It seems my teaching healthy eating is really paying off!

Jen said...

What a great way to spend the afternoon!!!! she looked so proud!

Helga said...

Those pictures of Alexa were great! The Easter Bunnies house looked great, for the few minutes that it lasted LOL!!!

Stephanie said...

Tina Fisher said...

She looks so cute in the pictures!! Never even saw one of these kits! At least you tried and she had fun before it fell apart!

mrs. b. said...

Cop Mama said...

Ha ha ha, LOVE the top pic! What a great capture!

Oh well, at least you tried! You're such a good mommy :-)

Uncle Phill said...

Delicious construction. Miss you guys.

blueviolet said...

Hahaha, I can't believe it collapsed! I have the worst luck with those things too. But the Easter theme is really cute!

He & Me + 3 said...

That happened to us with the kids gingerbread houses. LOL Oh my. She did a great job though. Cute

Julie said...

Where is the Easter Bunny going to live now??

What a cute idea.

carma said...

what's with you and Matt not being able to put together a simple Bunny house?? MB and I would have had that thing made with reinforced walls ;-)

Sarah and the Gentlemen said...

You guys did a cute job of it!

At least you got a picture before the big collapse.

Amy said...

I love the look on her face. So classic. And the poor bunny is now homeless.

Pennie said...

What a great idea! Those projects never work out the way they're supposed to, do they? :) The fun is in the decorating, anyhow...oh, and the eating - you got to do both of them! :) Mission accomplished!

Sonya said...

such a cute idea and I love her shocked face!
