Here's what was going through my mind as my evening unfolded:
1. Aw! River hopped in a bag for the first time...I should take a
picture of this.
2. Oh, she's sticking her tongue out--how cute!
3. I hope this picture comes out because I've never caught her
with her tongue out before.
4. Oh cool! The picture came out not blurry.
5. Wait a minute...what is that? Eeew! She's sitting in a lake of
her own pee!
6. How am I going to get her out of the bag without getting
bunny pee on myself or the carpet?
I learned that the short answer for #6 is: You can't.
I also learned that this photo pretty much sums up River's opinion of litter box training.
To sum up: River's cuteness quotient approaches zero as the amount of pee outside of her litter box increases. It's a good thing I love her anyway.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

As for the signage, what became associated with the Easter celebration existed long before Christianity. If you find yourself getting offended, you're taking this post entirely too seriously.

I think Penny is just using the holiday as an excuse to party. And she isn't even legal yet. Here's what I caught her doing while waiting for election results back in 2008...

Wild Rabbit: "What are these candy pellets of which you speak? I know of no such substance."
Penny: "What do you mean that candy pellets don't occur in nature? I have a bowl full of them right here!"
Wild Rabbit: "What's a bowl?"
Penny: "Well, it's what the humans put the food in."
Wild Rabbit: "Wait--did you just say that humans give you food?!"
Penny: "Well, yeah. I demand my pellets as soon as they wake up in the morning."
Wild Rabbit: "Dang! I usually just run and hide from humans. Do they all give you food?"
Penny: "All of the ones I've come across have. You should stop hiding from them."
Wild Rabbit: "Sounds like a plan!"
...and she never saw her woodland friend again.

Why is it that kids are so bent on unwitting self-injury? You tell them not to touch the hot stove and what do they do as soon as your back is turned? Apparently bunnies are no different.
I have now officially taken over bunny costuming duties. Penny informed me that I neglected to complete her ensemble by failing to include Cupid's bow and arrows.
By now, Penny strongly suspects that a pattern is emerging in relation to her having things stacked on her head and human holidays. She is not amused. The treats afterward are nice though.

I have to admit that my husband is the one who first thought to dress up our rabbit, Penny. He's a bit fuzzy as to the reason why (aside from it seeming to be a good idea at the time). When I went searching for the picture, I found it aptly titled: Do you have any idea how hard it is to pose a rabbit? Ben foolishly assumed that she would co-operate and not attempt to play with and/or eat the props. The lure of the pumpkin was just too great...it had to be tipped over right now. What you see before you is the culmination of about an hour of enthusiastic play-time and Penny being too tuckered out to heed the siren call of the ceramic pumpkin.
