4-H: Look at the bunnies!

I told y'all the bunnies were coming! And, they are so cute and adorable! And, lovable! And huggable! Hubby picked them up yesterday while me and the kids volunteered and then played at the school's Winter Fest. That was really fun because it was put on by the entire ISD and had lots of fun and cool booths to play and shop at.

This morning we headed out in cool, rainy, dreary weather to have the bunnies validated. That is where they check them and tattoo their little ears so that people have to use the rabbits they raise for the project (to keep people from cheating and buying other rabbits to win the show). The weather didn't bother me though because we had adorable bunnies with us. Who can be grim with cute, fluffy white bunnies?

I made a vlog with my iPhone but blogger and YouTube wouldn't accept the formatting. Go figure. That's alright. I'll save myself the embarrassment of speaking baby-bunny talk for three minutes. (I can't help it though, they are just such adorawable widdle things.)

Here's a few photos from the first official (daily) weigh in.

See? Aren't they just the cutest darned things? We have ten of'em. :-D Only 8 will make the show though. Which isn't until around the 19th (the show starts the week before that). We'll be doing some baking too. (Of course, not with the bunnies - with flour, butter, pears, sugar, etc. Get your minds out of the fryer.)

Bunnies at Christmas time are the best animal project ever! Although, Mr. Cuddles gets a little cranky because he gets side stepped in the adorable category by the soft white bunnies.

But Mama is sure to take care of him too.

:-P Hoppy Saturday (dontcha' just love my humor?)

For a month, we are a two dog (should count as 2 and a 1/2 cuz' Biggun is 150 lbs), 1 fish, 1 guinea pig, 10 rabbit, two kid family.

It'd be great to maintain the rabbit part by two but Hubby's like - neh to my yeh and I have to pick my battles. The kids can battle for the bunny pets.

:-P (Even though I wove them and hug them and pet them and pat them and snuggle them and... you get the idea) LOL!

I wandered through a pet store two weeks ago in search of some cat food, and there the rabbits were. Black, brown, white, splotched - and every single one of them wanting to be TAKEN HOME THIS MINUTE. I swear, if I didn't have this cat thing going on, I might have done it. Bunnies are the best - looking forward to some tails - uh, tales.

I always get a little nervous whenever you mention bunnies and baking in the same sentence. LOL! I love, love, LOVE bunnies!! Maybe one of these years I'll have some of my own.

Good luck raising them!!

Yeah, the bunnies are getting top billing around here lately. The rest of the animal family is never as happy as the kids (and I) for the bunnies to arrive, LOL!
