Happy Easter, Alleluia! and Some Easter Bunnies

Wishing you a Happy Easter!


"Christ is Risen, Alleluia! Truly, He is Risen, Alleluia, Alleluia!"

We celebrated our Easter weekend, starting with Good Friday Solemn Mass, and then last night a lovely 2.5 hour dusk celebration of the Easter Vigil. Today we will host family members for turkey, ham and all the trimmings. Lemon meringue pie, pumpkin pie and some chocolate too.


Bunnies and Easter go together, too, so I thought I would share some new bunnies at our place. Our oldest son's Californian doe, Callie, had her second litter of 10 kits in early March. For some reason only four have made it. These four bunnies are sure cute, though.


 Californian's are commercial meat rabbits (we don't eat rabbit though, he raises them to show for 4-H.)


When they are born, they are hairless, with closed eyes and very pink skinned (the red in the photo is from a heat lamp.) This litter has grown to this size in one month.


As bunnies Californians have light grey ears, tail and feet, but when they are full grown they should have black tails, ears and feet like momma. They have pink/red eyes too. They will be as big as momma Callie and daddy Hank too, and most likely will win some ribbons like Mom and the first litter did.

Wishing you the joy of Easter, no matter how you spend the day.

  9. He is risen indeed.
    Your rabbits are so pretty. I wonder if wild rabbits don't make it any better than domesticated, do. We have had two around our yard ever since we moved here, but no more ever.
    Hugs, Cindy
    Happy Resurrection Day!!!
