Betsy's Birthday Party

This headband looks good on me.
I like cake!

Betsy was looking quite spectacular at her birthday party last Saturday.  There are too many pictures to sort through but here are a few good ones.

Yay for Betsy

Alas, her birthday was on Monday but still it is important to remember how precious little Miss Betsy is to us.  Just look at that face... nevermind the cake.  Oh, cuteness personified.  Like Cherry Bugg.  Of course.

Cherry Bugg Angered at Vice President Slight

Cherry Bugg just found out this evening that she would not be Mitt Romney's vice presidential pick.  While she admits this was a crushing blow, she remains firm in her convictions that she is the best choice.  Now she can focus all of her energy to winning the rabbit election of 2012 on Dewey Street.

Cherry Bugg Teaches Betsy Jo about Being a Bugg

Cherry Bugg and Betsy Jo
Betsy Jo had her first detailed conversation with Cherry Bugg on August 6th.  While that might not seem significant to many, Cherry Bugg wants to make sure that Betsy Jo -- who will turn a year old in two weeks -- understands the roles in the household.  "Young children can be cute and sometimes quite tolerable," Chee explained to her.  "But ultimately the power in the household lies with the rabbits."  A brief pause as she riased her right ear slightly.  "And with Mister John since he feeds us."

Betsy Jo sat and listened and really didn't have much to say other than her occasional mono-syllabic squeak that she makes.  The Chee came away from the mini-conference with renewed confidence.  "She didn't try to pet me too hard," said the Chee, referencing another little girl in the household who has been notorious in petting too hard.

Betsy Jo agrees
When asked about this year's rabbit election, Cherry Bugg remained mum.  "I don't have much competition unless that lounge singer in the bedroom (Commute Bunny) runs."  I have a good shot at being the leader for the next four years here on Dewey.

Alas, poor Driveway, I knew him well, Horatio

After many many years, the driveway is being replaced.  Methinks its the original driveway that's been here since 1952 or so.  That means that it's put in some good usage for many many basketball games, wiffle ball tournaments, and oil changes.
Mary Jane is watching intently as the asphault is being taken up.

Surf's Up?

Somebody is taking the phrase "surf's up" a bit too literally.  Also might want to say, "Watch out for that tree!"

Almost as good as seeing a surprised little girl is telling her to act surprised and then her acting that way.  Here Mary Jane is listening to her Gramma on how to be more surprised.  At least she didn't go all Macauley Caulkin in Home Alone.  That would have been unfortunate.

Darn blenders.  They scare everyone!!!

Another Medal Day for Mary Jane

This is the life.  Feet up on the table, chewing on her food, and looking at her Sports Illustrated.  I'd wear my Olympic medal today too.

The Power of Sunglasses

Mary Jane has displayed her own Hollywood image.  I'm hoping that when she has to worry about her own paparazzi, she still finds time to call us.

Or at least talk to Cherry Bugg...
