February is a month for birthdays in my family. Today my son Ken is celebrating his and  yesterday my grandson AJ had his. The day before that was my brother-in-law Ron's birthday. My grandson Donovan had his birthday on February 2nd and my mother's birthday was on the 8th. For a short month we made the best of it.

I told Ken I was baking him his favorite cake and here's his reaction:

Do you think maybe he likes cake? Happy birthday Ken!!!

I've been working on some paper mache rabbits for Easter and I finally have one painted and ready for his debut. The ones I have made so far all appear to have packed on a few pounds over the long winter months. I was trying to come up with a name for this one and finally decided to name him what I've been calling him all the while I worked on him.

I would like you to meet Pugsley Cottontail.

Okay, turn a little to your right so we can get a better look at what you've got there. Pugsley is carrying a green painted metal bucket with a rope handle that holds a bouquet of flowers.

Let's get a look at that tail. It really does look like it's made of cotton. Okay, turn a little more...

Without the bucket in the way you really can see the pudgy tummy.

"Hey, who're you calling pudgy?? You got a problem with chubby rabbits?? I didn't think so!

I should be able to start painting another bunny tomorrow. It seems to take forever for the paper mache to dry this time of year. 

Don't forget to enter my giveaway if you haven't already. I have an idea for something else to add in with Miss Kanin but it's a surprise so I can't tell you what it is.

As always, thanks for stopping by

Haha, so sorry for my belated Congratulations.
Your lovely Pugsley Cottontail looks GORGEOUS, my friend. I learned the word "chubby". We cannot wait Easter to come, don't we? And I loved the sound of the word "chubby", because I am so, too♪♪♪
Love you always, xoxo Miyako*
