A Year in Rabbits {Bunny Calendar Photos}

Hello, dears!

If you’re in need of cheering up, I have just the thing: thirty adorable pictures of bunnies! Megan and I took these photos months ago, for a custom calendar we gave as a gift. (See some of our previous calendar pictures here.) Now I’m finally able to post some of the best photos – and bloopers! 😉

Enjoy a year in rabbits!

Bunny News {A Fuzzy Announcement}

featured image 10

GUYSSSSSS WILLOW HAD BABIESSSSSS!

My rabbit had EIGHT babies, in fact! Well, she had eight babies but then one died. 😦 Anyway, the remaining fuzzballs are absolutely adorable, and getting cuter every day. 😀

I will show you picture in a moment, don’t worry, but before we meet them I wanted to show you guys this pretty mini-photoshoot of Willow, the fluffy mother.

LOOK AT THAT FLUFF.

DSC_4495

I think this shot looks quite glamorous. 😛 It looks like she has white eyeliner on, doesn’t it?

DSC_4496

Awwww she’s just so adorable and FLUZZY.

Willow 1

I think she needs brushing, though…

Willow 2

Hee hee, gotta love those ear tufts, right? Also she kind of looks fierce in this one.

Willow 3

❤ ❤ ❤

Willow 4

Alright. HERE WE GO. This is all eight of them the day they were born. Pretty pink. 😛

bunnies 2

Okay, I guess they aren’t QUITE as cute when they’re first born, but still… I love seeing all the different patterns and how many there are and EEP, it’s so exciting!

bunnies 1

Their fur grows super fast, though! This is just a few days after they were born.

bunnies 12

This is about how they looked last time I saw them (which was yesterday). LOOK AT THAT CUTE LITTLE NOSE.

bunnies 2

They always snuggle together and it’s just adorable. ❤

bunnies 6

This is one of my favorite babies. 🙂 I think it’s going to get grayer as it grows up, because we had another one like this in a past litter.

bunnies 3

We haven’t named them all yet, but we named this one Bo because Carmen thought he looked like a cow (he did more when he was little), and of course bovine means cow. 😛

bunnies 5

This one is also ADORABLE, and really uniquely colored!

bunnies 8ibunnies 9

I think this guy might be the biggest, though he doesn’t look like it here.

bunnies 14

Kind of blurry but too cuddly to delete. ❤

bunnies 16

bunnies 10

It’s hard to get a picture where you can see all of them clearly, but you can MOSTLY tell who’s who in this one. There’s a lovely variety of patterns!

bunnies 17bunnies

 AHHH, I absolutely LOVE having baby bunnies, especially when they get a few weeks older. ❤ My little sister Carmen is going to keep one to replace Diamond, her previous rabbit, but she hasn’t chosen which one for sure. She’s thinking either the solid brown-gray rabbit or the black/silver one.

Which one do YOU think she should keep? Don’t you think the babies have an extremely squishable mother? XD And if you have any baby bunny name suggestions, I’d love to hear them!

Thanks for reading, dears, and have a lovely day!

***Allison***

P. S. Ugh, I AM SO ANNOYED AT MYSELF. A little more than a month ago (*facepalm* ) Bekah from Questionable Tortoise Couture interviewed me, which was extremely fun, and I didn’t remember to link it UNTIL NOW. -_- But NO MORE. Click here to read the post! Once again, Bekah, I am incredibly sorry I haven’t linked it before – I kept remembering in between posts and then forgetting once I actually made them. :/ Anyway, I’ll stop apologizing now and let you guys get on with your day. XD I hope it’s a great one!

Farewell, Baby Bunnies

WARNING: EXTREME CUTENESS ALERT. If you read this post, I can almost guarantee you’ll want a baby bunny… immediately. Read at your own risk. 😛

The other day we sold one of the baby bunnies (Herbert Naninger). It won’t be long till the rest of them go too, most likely. So this *might* be the last baby bunny post for a while. 😦

Anyway, I did take some pretty cute pictures of the ones we’re selling before Herbert left! Actually, “pretty cute” isn’t quite strong enough. I’d say “extremely adorable” sounds more accurate.

Care to have a look?

DSC_0959 (1280x853)

AWW DOESN’T HERB LOOK ADORABLE?!

DSC_0954 (1280x853)DSC_0960 (1280x853)DSC_0963 (1280x853)DSC_0964 (1280x853)DSC_0965 (1280x853)DSC_0967 (1280x853)

Sister and brother. 🙂

DSC_0969 (1280x853)

The bunnies are SO cute when they stand up and look around like this, aren’t they?

DSC_0970 (1280x853)DSC_0984 (853x1280)

And they’re ALSO so cute when they wash their faces. (Excuse my little sister’s leg. I was too lazy to crop it out. XD)

DSC_0987 (853x1280)

AWW! Ugh, it would have been a perfect picture if Carmen’s knee hadn’t photobombed it. 😦 *Sigh* Oh well.

DSC_0993 (1280x853)DSC_0994 (1280x853)DSC_0996 (1280x853)DSC_0997 (1280x853)

Starring: Herbert Naninger. Also Starring: Allison’s hair. 😛

DSC_1000 (1280x853)DSC_1002 (853x1280)DSC_1003 (853x1280)DSC_1005 (853x1280)

AWWW doesn’t that picture just make you want to squish his (I mean her) fuzzy body? They are sooo soft. I definitely took the most pictures of Herb this time. She’s just so photogenic and sweet, not to mention that was practically the last chance I had.

DSC_1006 (853x1280)

I kept putting Herb down so I could get a better picture of her but she insisted on hopping back into my lap. ♥

DSC_1007 (1280x853)

My sweet little Ginger. 😀

DSC_1011 (853x1280)

As I’ve said before, it’s kind of hard to get good pictures of Mulberry because she’s so dark. That’s why the exposure is kind of off in this photo. But she’s still cute. 🙂

DSC_1012 (853x1280)DSC_1013 (1280x853)

Heh heh, Herb eating grass. XD

DSC_1014 (1280x853)DSC_1015 (1280x853)DSC_1016 (1280x853)

AHHHHH!

DSC_1017 (1280x853)DSC_1018 (1280x853)DSC_1019 (1280x853)

Bwahahahaha is this photo not hilarious? I think he was twisting his head just as I snapped the picture. XD

DSC_1021 (853x1280)

Bunny paws… ♥

DSC_1022 (853x1280)DSC_1023 (1280x853)

Poor Mulberry. Almost all her photos are either too dark or too light. 😦

DSC_1024 (1280x853)

And we’re done. Which photo was your favorite, if you had one? Did you survive the cuteness overdose? I certainly hope so! Where would this blog be without all my dear readers?

Phew that was a lot of links!

Pictures, Etc.

Ugh, I really need better names for these posts. XD Suggestions?

Annnyway, since you guys seem to enjoy random photography posts I enjoy posting them, I figured – let’s do more! 😀

****************

 It had just rained and there was an interesting orangish tint to everything outside, different than the golden hour usually looks because it was so cloudy.

DSCN1665 (1280x960)

Ahh, beautiful rain drops.

DSCN1666 (1280x960)DSCN1667 (1280x960)

Maggie waded into the field, looking noble. XD

DSCN1669 (1280x960)DSCN1671 (1280x960)

HA HA look at her expression.

DSCN1674 (1280x960)

Okay, this picture might be a bit startling… You have been warned. 😛 He looks pretty angry, doesn’t he (or she)? This snapping turtle appeared in our lane one day and Maggie nearly went crazy. Snapping turtles are weird, ugly creatures. Blech.

DSCN1687 (1280x960)

Ahem. Let’s move on to cuter pictures… LIKE BABY BUNNIES EEEEE! This is the photoshoot I did to get pictures for selling them. *Sniff* Anyone want to buy a baby bunny? 😉

AHHH THEY’RE SO CUTE I CAN’T STAND IT.

bunnies 1 (1280x853)

Here’s Mulberry…

bunnies 2 (1280x853)

And Ginger…

bunnies 3 (1280x853)

And Herbert Naninger. 🙂 SO. CUTE. (Also if you’re wondering why Basil isn’t on here, it’s because we’re keeping her! So I didn’t need pictures for the listing.)

bunnies 4 (1280x853)DSC_0747 (1280x853)DSC_0753 (1280x853)DSC_0758 (1280x853)DSC_0765 (1280x853)DSC_0771 (1280x853)DSC_0775 (1280x853)DSC_0778 (1280x853)DSC_0781 (1280x853)DSC_0782 (1280x853)

ISN’T THIS THE CUTEST?!

DSC_0784 (1280x853)DSC_0786 (1280x853)

Okay, after all that cuteness you might need an antidote so you don’t get too overwhelmed. Ready for another slightly creepy picture? Here we go.

DSCN1808 (1280x960)

XD Praying mantises are so weird. I got this interesting picture of one cleaning itself when we were studying them in Nature Study.

DSCN1816 (1280x960)

While we’re on the subject of bugs, Megan found three black swallowtail caterpillars outside and we took them inside to watch. We both got some neat pictures of the first one that hatched! 😀 Aren’t butterflies delightful creatures?

And that’s it for today, dears! What was your favorite picture or category? Thanks for reading and have a lovely day. ♥

The Fluffballs Return!

The baby bunnies are growing SO fast – they’re almost ready to sell! Anyone want to come pick up a fluffball or two? 😉 I got some more adorable pictures, so of course I must share them with you guys. 😉

WARNING: EXTREME CUTENESS ALERT.

Okay, you have been warned. I am not responsible for any melting-into-puddles or *dies* or *faints* now. 😉

AHH IS THIS NOT THE CUTEST THING YOU HAVE EVER SEEN?!

bunny 6 (1142x1280)

We put a couple of cinderblocks in their cage for the bunnies to play with, and it’s so cute when they squeeze inside!

DSCN1605 (1280x960)DSCN1609 (1280x960)

Airplane ears. XD

DSCN1651 (1280x960)

Ginger was helping Megan with Math. 😛

DSCN1655 (1280x960)DSCN1656 (1280x960)DSCN1623 (1280x960)

AWW LOOK AT HIM!

DSCN1625 (1280x960)

I LOVE it when they hold their ears like this!

AWW THAT FACE, I MUST SQUISH HIM AHHH!

bunny 5 (1280x960)

 Ahem. Well, there you have it, folks, your cuteness overload for the day. 🙂 Which was your favorite picture? Thanks for reading, dears!

Baby Bunnies – HELP ME I’M MELTING

***EXTREME CUTENESS ALERT! If you read this post, you will most likely want a bunny afterward. AHH THEY ARE SO CUTE!***

Ahem. Deep breaths, Allison, deep breaths. Okay. Today I’m going to show you ADORABLE BABY BUNNIES AHHHH! *hyperventilates* LET’S JUST GET ON TO THE PICTURES NOW.

Since I’ve last made a bunny post, they have grown so incredibly much – but don’t worry, they’ve only gotten cuter! Let’s start back when they were small…

Here’s Basil:

DSC_0652 (1280x853)

And Mulberry:

DSC_0647 (1280x853)

And Herbert Naninger:

DSC_0649

AND GINGER! (Ginger’s “mine” even though we’re not actually keeping him.) Oh, by the way, we found out that they’re all girls except Ginger… so some of the names are a bit weird now. XD

DSC_0654 (1280x853)DSC_0656 (1280x853)

I love this picture!

DSC_0663 (1280x853)

We like to bring the bunnies inside because how can we not resist holding them as much as possible? Look, Ginger’s eyes are starting to open!

DSC_0668 (1280x853)

Here’s the proud (and very fluffy) mom, my rabbit Willow.

DSC_0676 (1280x853)DSC_0677 (1280x853)

HA HA this is such an adorable pose. XD

DSC_0680 (1280x853)

This picture of her feeding her babies just cracks me up…

DSC_0683 (1280x853)

I took these pictures of Ginger right before we left for vacation. SO SOFT.

DSC_0705 (1280x853)DSC_0706 (1280x853)

AWW I love his little nose!

DSC_0707 (1280x853)DSC_0708 (1280x853)

And just the yesterday I took these pictures with Megan’s camera, because I still haven’t gotten mine to work properly. 😦

DSCN1257 (1280x960)

OH MY GOODNESS THE FLUFF.

DSCN1259 (1280x960)

I know this picture is super blurry but it was too funny not to post! My little sister Carmen put Mulberry in a “nest” she made. XD

DSCN1264 (1280x960)DSCN1265 (1280x960)

They can barely fit in my hand now!

DSCN1260 (1280x960)

DSCN1270 (1280x960)DSCN1271 (1280x960)DSCN1274 (1280x960)

It is SO cute when they clean themselves. ♥

DSCN1275 (1280x960)DSCN1278 (1280x960)

DSCN1290 (1280x960)

BWAHAHA! XD Mulberry squeezed through my flip flop all by himself.

DSCN1291 (1280x960)

Brother and sister. 🙂

OH MY GOODNESS THOSE CHEEKS.

DSCN1300 (1280x960)DSCN1303 (1280x960)

THAT FLUFFY FACE.

DSCN1304 (1280x960)

*collapses into laughter* THAT TINY WITTLE TONGUE.

DSCN1318 (1280x960)

Jeff put poor Herb in his cowboy boot. XD

DSCN1320 (1280x960)DSCN1323 (1280x960)DSCN1324 (1280x960)DSCN1308 (1280x960)DSCN1313 (1280x960)

Heh heh, this looks like a bunny selfie.

DSCN1314 (1280x960)

They were snuggling up to me. ♥

DSCN1368 (1280x960)DSCN1371 (1280x960)

DSCN1391 (1280x960)

Ahhh, relaxing.

DSCN1396 (1280x960)

Loooooook!

DSCN1374 (1280x960)

DSCN1327 (1280x960)

Jeff’s expression… XD

DSCN1334 (1280x960)DSCN1336 (1280x960)

Carmen took these last two pictures for me. 🙂

DSCN1344 (1280x960)

It’s VERY hard not to smile with three balls of fluff are sitting on you. 😀

DSCN1353 (1280x960)

PLEASE HELP ME, ALL THAT CUTENESS HAS MELTED ME INTO A PUDDLE. And the fact is, they’re practically 50 times cuter in real life, when you can hold them and squish them and pet them. ♥

Did you melt? Do you want a bunny now? And which baby bunny is your favorite? (Hint: the answer is Ginger. XD I’m just kidding.)

***Allison***

BABY BUNNIES!

AHHHH, GUYS, WILLOW HAD BABIES! 😀 😀 😀 I’M SO EXCITED AS YOU CAN PROBABLY TELL BY ALL THE CAPS! *Ahem* But seriously, they are sooooo cute! I took these pictures a few days ago, and they’re even more fuzzy and adorable now.

There are four bunnies: Basil, Ginger, Mulberry, and Herbert Naninger  XD (does anyone get where that’s from?).

DSC_0621 (1280x853)DSC_0622 (1280x853)DSC_0626 (1280x853)

DSC_0627 (1280x853)
This is Herbert Naninger. XD

DSC_0628 (1280x853)

DSC_0630 (1280x853)
This is Basil.

DSC_0631 (1280x853)DSC_0632 (1280x853)

DSC_0633 (1280x853)
AWW!

DSC_0634 (1280x853)

DSC_0635 (1280x853)
AWWWWWWWWWW! (The one on the right is Ginger.)

DSC_0636 (1280x853)DSC_0637 (1280x853)

DSC_0638 (1280x853)
THIS IS SO CUTE.

DSC_0639 (1280x853)

DSC_0642 (1280x853)
This is Mulberry. (It’s hard to get a picture of black things, but trust me – she (or he) is cuter in real life. 😉

 

 ARE THEY NOT ADORABLE?! They are WAY cuter in real life because they’ve grown since these pictures and they’re so snuggly and soft to hold. ♥ I love baby bunnies so much!
Which is your favorite bunny (so far), and do you have a favorite picture?

***Allison***

P. S. You only have four more days to sign up for WordCrafters 3! 😀 If you know blogger friends who love to write, I would appreciate it if you shared or reblogged the post (and thank you sooo much to those who already did!). 🙂

Random Photography + Some Sad News :(

Hey, guys. I was going to post about that mysterious thing I’ve been hinting at, but unfortunately I can’t really anymore. You see, what I was going to post was that Willow had baby bunnies! But… *SNIIIIIFFF* they aren’t alive anymore. 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 They were doing just fine even though it was quite chilly, but I think the really windy day we had today was just too much for them. *Cries* Here is one picture to remember them by:

004
This is a picture of one the day it was born (I think). There were five all black babies.

 

 *Sigh*
Okay, now that’s over with. 😦 Let’s move on to happier subjects, right? I’ve collected several random photographs from my extensive collection.

Let’s start with some cuteness to cheer us up, shall we?

allisonsunset-schoolroom-012-1280x960
Aww! Look at these two wittle cuties!
allisonsunset-schoolroom-013-1280x960
It’s always fun to find a litter of barn kittens. 🙂 (You can tell this was a while ago by Megan’s shortsleeves. XD )
allisonfall-034-1280x960
Why hello there, Lily! XD She cracks me up.

Casey looks kind of… I don’t know what… startled? XD

And some miscellaneous pictures…

Watercolor is so fun. ♥

allisonart-bunnies-003-1280x960

allisonart-bunnies-091-1280x960
Ahh, a lovely sunset.

And last but not least, a few pictures from our uncle’s pond.

pond-2-1280x960
Reflections are so pretty!
pond-4-1280x960
This is Buster. He loves to swim in the pond, as you can tell from his muddy fur. 😉
pond-5-1280x960
Megan was fishing (she didn’t catch anything), and Buster was chasing her hook. XD
pond-6-1280x960
Isn’t this gorgeous? The reflection is almost perfect!

pond-7-1280x960

pond-8-1280x960
Ripples are a fun abstract photo opportunity. It kinda reminds me of a Van Gogh painting, ya know?

 

 

I’m sorry about the sad news… but I hope you enjoyed the rest of the post. 🙂 Thank you, my loyal readers! ♥

EEP! {Baby Bunny Cuteness Overload}

Guys, I cannot even begin to describe how cute these lil’ guys and gals are. But thankfully I don’t have to, because I have gobs and heaps of pictures that show you their extreme adorableness instead. 😀

Warning: This post will be extremely long and loaded with cuteness. Read at your own risk!

baby-bunny-photos-2
Aww, lookee! They all lined up like this by themselves! I had to rush back to the house quick and get my camera. XD
baby-bunny-photos-11
A beautiful bouquet of bunnies!

Oh my goodness, guys. We lined the bunnies up on a blanket, and… ♥!
baby-bunny-photos-27
Just hangin’ out. Look at Hank and Blackberry’s wittle lop ears!
baby-bunny-photos-32
Synchronized ear lopping. Hey, that should be an Olympic sport. XD

I’m going to organize the rest of the photos by rabbit.

Lilac gets to be first, since she’s mine. XD

baby-bunny-photos-14
Wow, her ears look really short in this picture. XD
baby-bunny-photos-20
Hello, cutie-pie!
baby-bunny-photos-8
I love how this photo turned out!
baby-bunny-photos-13
♥ They can be real sungglebunnies sometimes. Wook at dose wittle tootsies! XD
baby-bunny-photos-23
Guys, look at this. Lilac was snuggling with me in the hammock!
baby-bunny-photos-24
Are you a sleepy baby bunny?
baby-bunny-photos-25
I love this picture also! Bunnies are so cute from this angle. 😀
baby-bunny-photos-28
I took these next three pictures just yesterday. Look, she’s finally becoming a lop rabbit!
baby-bunny-photos-29
Relaxing on the trampoline with friendly humans…

 

baby-bunny-photos-31
What in the world is the strange machine, Detective Lilac? Hee hee, her ears are like flappy wings here or something. XD
allisonpets-walk-skidloader-032-1280x720
ISN’T THIS HILARIOUS?! I took a video of Lilac when she was licking herself, and then copied one frame out of it. LOOK AT HER TONGUE!

 

Hank:

baby-bunny-photos-1
Chillin’ out. This is the life, huh Hank?
baby-bunny-photos-15
WHAT A LITTLE BUNDLE OF FLUZZINESS YOU ARE!
baby-bunny-photos-19
Aww! He looks so innocent yet brave in this picture… wait, that doesn’t make sense.
baby-bunny-photos-30
Ha ha ha! Look at his little mouth! He looks shocked. XD XD
allisonpets-walk-skidloader-033-1280x960
Ahh, time for some rest and relaxation. He looks like a cool dude here. XD

 

Higgledy Piggledy:

Hig-Pig at the golden hour.
baby-bunny-photos-6
Oh my word. CAN I SQUEEZE YOU?!
baby-bunny-photos-7
This has to win a funniest pets award somewhere. LOOK AT HIS EXPRESSION!

 

Blackberry:

baby-bunny-photos-22
Blackberry is really hard to take pictures of since he’s black, but I got a cute one at the golden hour. ♥
baby-bunny-photos-33
Blackberry’s radar has found a signal. Beep, beep!

 

baby-bunny-photos-26
OH MY GOODNESS I LOVE THIS PICTURE SO MUCH!!!

Drover:

 

baby-bunny-photos-3
I looove this picture! ♥♥ Drover looks bright eyed and floppy-eared.
allisonpets-walk-skidloader-014-1280x960
He’s such a cutie with those blue eyes. ♥

 

baby-bunny-photos-4
Drover does not approve.
baby-bunny-photos-5
OOOHH MY GOODNESS HELP ME I’M OVERWHELMED WITH CUTENESS!
baby-bunny-photos-10
Apparently, Drover adores basketball.
allisonpets-walk-skidloader-036-1280x960
Drover, the expert camouflage rabbit.
allisonpets-walk-skidloader-037-1280x960
Aww! The fuzzy faux fur against our mint walls is a perfect photo prop.
allisonpets-walk-skidloader-041-1280x960
Eeek I love this picture so much too! Maybe I’ll have to do a whole photoshoot with Drover.

Now do you believe me when I rant about their adorableness? Are they not the CUTEST THINGS ON EARTH?! Oh my goodness, I’ve seen them every single day and I still can’t get over how cute they are!

Ahem. Let me stop hyperventilating now and tell you some bunny news.

We sold Hank and Lilac! O.o Our aunt bought them for our cousin’s birthday present. I’m sad because we don’t have them anymore, but I’m mostly glad because our cousins don’t live far from us so we’ll be able to see them again!

Also, we finally separated the boys from the girls. Lilac is a girl. Phew, yay! But Hank and Drover are also girls ( XD ), and Blackberry and Higgledy Piggledy are boys. Since we already sold Hank and Lilac, we have Drover, Blackberry, and Higgledy Piggledy for sale for $25 each. 🙂 Anyone need a bunny after all of these pictures? XD

Thank you for reading this extremely long post, dear readers! Did you get your cuteness fix for the day? I know I did!

Wait! I couldn’t resist one bunny meme before I left…
