Growing Bunnies

The baby bunnies are now 3 weeks old. They actually look like rabbits now. They are pretty cute. They are hopping in and out of their nest, and are eating hay and pellets. Railey was so anxious to be able to hold them. We started letting her hold them this week and she keeps packing them around like a baby. We keep telling her that she can't take them away from their cage but she wraps them up in a blanket and carries them around. We could never get her to play with dolls but give her an animal and she will mother it to death. The first thing she does when she gets home from school is run out to the rabbit shed and see them. It has been a lot of fun to see them grow.

This one is sitting in the palm of my hand so you can kind of see how little they really are.

Baby Bunnies

We have Baby Bunnies!! One of Railey's rabbits had babies. There are seven of them. She is so excited. We had one litter before these ones that didn't survive at birth, so she is in heaven watching these. They seem to grow bigger everyday. These pictures were when they were 7 days. They are now 9 days. When they were born they look like little bald rats. They are not cute. But after just one week, they are already covered in fur, and have doubled in size. They climb all over each other and make little squeeky noises. They are pretty cute now. They should open their eyes in the next day and should be hopping out of their nest in the next week. We already have people offering to buy them. IFA said they would buy whatever we didn't want so they could sell them for Easter. Railey is excited to earn money from her rabbits. She just can't wait until they are big enough to get them out and hold them. She is such an animal lover. We will post more pictures as they grow.

January Trips

In January, my kids got to go to Grandma and Grandpa's house for a few days while I went to California. Rob had a tradeshow to do in Sacramento. He wanted me to go with him and help. And it was also my birthday that weekend so he wanted me to come and spend the weekend. My parents offered to take the kids so I could go. My dad came and picked them up. Rob had left earlier in the week to drive down and get everything set up, so I caught a flight out of Salt Lake on Thursday and met up with him there. We had a good weekend, even though we were pretty much just working. We went out to dinner for my birthday. That was nice. It's great to be able to visit with each other without having to talk over the noise of kids. We don't get to do that very often. When the weekend was over my dad brought the kids back on Monday. My kids had a great time. They were so excited to play in all the snow. Blanding has had a LOT of snow this year. The kids love going to Grandma and Grandpa's. They are still talking about it. I have the best parents ever. They are too good to us. Thanks mom and dad for the nice break. These are a few of the pictures they took while the kids were in Blanding.
