...And the Bunny Lays the Eggs?

Easter has got to be a chickens favorite holiday. They lay eggs daily, sometimes when the workers trick them into an 18 hour day they lay more... what a hard life! So I'm impressed that they figured out a way that once a year they get some bunny to lay all thier eggs for them. Women should learn something from the chickens, make the guys have the babies once a year. Course then the babies would probably end up in shells for a few weeks and hatch into lizards or something... It sure wouldn't be chocolate goodies...
So we have had a great weekend. Easter was so fun. Chris' parents and us went to Delta, watched movies, ate tons of food, rode the 4 wheelers while we watched the insane mayhem of people down at the Little Sahara

(Easter seems to be a huge hit there now, we've thought about selling navajo tacos there next year to make bank...), and we played some baseball! It was really fun but I think we are all sore today from hitting the ball so much. I was suprised at myself that once I wasn't as afraid that I was going to line drive the ball at Chris or Carl, I was hitting okay. I've never been able to hit baseballs before, ask Ty, my friend since childhood that always tried to teach me, but my strike zone seemed to only be above my head....

We're All April Fools

So this has been a traumatic and funny day... and Isn't that what it's all about?
So first off all, When I got up to go to work, everyone else had already gone, I discovered that Gigi was gone!
I searched the house and cupboards fifteen times. Then I searched all the neighborhood and no Gigi! I was panicking so I finally told Chris. i went to her work to tell her and after i did, she started laughing. I thought, why is she laughing about Gigi being gone? And then she said, "Good April Fools, Davie..." But I wasn't joking. I spent five minutes trying to convince her i wasn't kidding when she finally had to go home and check for herself. She called and said, "Davie, Gigi's gone!" And I thought, no you get it. Nothing bad should ever happen on April 1st cause no one believes it!
Then later I get a picture text of a positive Pregnancy test from Chris. I just said, you'd better not be joking because I can't handle all these emotions all at once....
Well, i was about 80% sure she was kidding, but that 20% can really get to you... so I thought of a plan. If she was kidding then I'd get her back, and if she wasn't then i would get bonus points.... So I took her flowers and a mommy-to-be card to her work and let everyone there know how happy I was to be a Daddy! Turns out she used a red marker for the Prego Test... and I got her back cause all her coworkers were worried that I'd be mad... but that's not me, I don't get mad, I get even...
Then with the blessing of technology I sent out a facebook message saying that Chris was pregnant, and my family freaked! They were all so excited it almost hurt to tell them the truth. Then they said "You're sick. Funny, but sick..."
So to end the day, I went home, dreading not finding Gigi, when as I got to the house I saw a flicker of movement behind our porch chair. I checked under the flaps, dreading that I was just imagining things, when there He was! Gigi was okay! I took him inside, and after a long snowy day outside, he ate and wanted ten minutes of petting time.
Anyways, Happy April "Do-Something-You've-Always-Wanted-to-Do-But-Don't-Want-To-Get-In-Trouble-For-It" Day!
