Simon and River enjoying their favorite treats--oats, banana chips, raisins and celery!
They really could be twins with the look of disbelief they gave me at not letting them eat ALL of the treats at once. It's their special day, but I don't want them to get a special tummy ache as an after-party. They accepted my portion control when I told them they'd have treats for the week.
Thanks for visiting the blog and we hope you have a great weekend! We'll be back with more bunny cuteness on Monday.
I was looking through old photos and found this one where River was just learning how to walk on tile. Those ears!
Oh, before I forget: People were showing interest in the Fractal Bunnies
drawing I posted last week and mentioned it would look cool as a
poster. I finally managed to set up a store where you can get a print
if you want one--you choose the size (smaller is cheaper) and paper type. Here’s the link: http://www.zazzle.com/bunniesandsunshine*
The store link is also in the sidebar just under Simon and River's followers if you feel the urge to buy bunny related things and stuff. I should
also note that Simon and River are shameless in trying to get you to
support their oat and banana habit. I tried to be the voice of reason...I really did!
Caught Simon dancing across the living room. I love how even his little tail has stripes on it!
Good news everyone--we have acquired a new camera! Once I get the battery charged and get the feel for all the different settings on it, I'll post more recent pics of our dynamic duo. Just thought you'd like to know!
Our heartfelt condolences to those who have lost family and friends in the terror attacks in Paris and around the world. We wish the wounded a quick recovery. We also want to thank the first responders and everyone who works to help others during their time of greatest need.
No, really--Simon and River's combined cuteness killed our camera!
Behold the final photo taken with our little point-and-shoot camera (it was a 5 year old Canon PowerShot model). I still have some good photos for posts and I'll probably post more videos/gifs than usual for the time being. So, please bear with us until we can acquire a new camera!
Simon plays 'keep away' with his new favorite toy. Floppy bunny ears make surprisingly good blindfolds. He ended up chasing it around the living room like a orange hockey puck (not sure if he was trying to eat it and it kept moving on him or what).
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? He 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.
Here is a photo depicting the most patient bunny on the planet. I can't
believe she didn't try to eat the beard. I think she's just resigned
to waiting for the treats after the human stops using the flashy-thing.
Inky's punishment for stealing Penny's Halloween candy was swift and terrible. A bit of randomness I came up with that fits the season:
Ha! Give you treats?! Nice trick. Now, the way this works is that you give us treats.
I was all sorts of proud that this turned out after eight and a half
hours of carving. I haven't carved a pumpkin since I was 9 years old
(pretty sure I got it all out of my system here). I didn't have any
proper carving tools, so I made do with an exacto-knife, a paring knife,
a calligraphy nib, a spoon and some tips you use to pipe icing with
(because they were sharp and metal). I also found out the hard way that
candles don't really work to light up a pumpkin if you don't do a
cut-through. Halloween 2013:
And they said that making a rabbit-themed version of
Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven couldn't be done!
Overall, I'd have to say that Simon and River tolerated their first real
costumes pretty well. Giving them both a hay cube probably helped.
Thanks for visiting the blog and be sure to come back tomorrow for a special Halloween post! See you then!
