Stormy Aytes

A few weeks ago while Taylor was spending the day/night with Hope I got a call from her begging for a pet bunny. Her friend Kaleigh's bunny had babies and there was only a few left. After thinking it over for a day or so and talking to Kym about what all was required when having a bunny as a pet we relented. Taylor was so excited and Caleb and Madison caught the "excitement bug" also. The would ask every day if we were getting the bunny that day. Well today was the day! Hope picked Taylor up from VBS and they went to purchase the bunny's hutch and all the stuff that goes with a bunny and then they went to get the actual bunny. They came home a few hours later and Taylor hasn't stopped smiling yet. The other 2 were pretty excited too, Madison even held the bunny and gave it a kiss :)

The kids checking out the bunnies. This is the black one that we ended up not keeping.

I love the look on Caleb's face :)

Madison couldn't stop giggling :)

Oh...he's so cute!!! It's like he has whiskers...well he does, but it's like he has extra ones! Can't wait to see him. I'm glad the kids are so excited to have their first pet! Congrats!

Now, that is a very pretty bunny! Love the long hair. How fun! I used to work with a lady who had a pet bunny that she let roam free in her house like a dog or cat. Now, there's an idea.

It is almost like she has a beard :) Taylor especially loved that one...she went on and on about her hair. Ginger, the lady we got it from has the mother bunny litter box trained and it goes all around her house.....that is definitely not for me! This bunny will only come inside (and that is only to the garage) when it is really cold outside. I don't want to be picking up rabbit poop in the house!

Ginger said...

Aww, come on, Holly! If she uses the litter box, then you wouldn't be picking up rabbit poop! How cute, it would be just like having a cat. Seriously, I might not want a rabbit hopping around my house either but it sounds cute in theory. If you guys leave her outside, make sure she has shade so she won't get too hot.

O.k. I have to say this... Bailey did a report on rabbits and we learned that they eat there own poop to get some of the nutrients they need. They only eat it once. Once they poop it, eat it and poop it again they move on to the other newer poop. haha! Bailey had to say that in front of her class with a straight face!

Congrats on the new addition to your family. He is so cuddly and soft looking! His name suits him well.
