Here's a picture of Ellie flopping today! Just a few minutes ago. Don't mind the hay in her water, I'm about to go clean her enclosure.


And then I heard something weird in the kitchen, so I went in and saw the blanket moving. She was under the blanket and I managed to get this picture before she disappeared back under.


Here is her round rump in her box! haha. She's such a ball.


Ellie likes the fan, once she realizes what it is, she flops right in front of it.

Oh yes, 10 people is MUCH more manageable than 40. Denise you're right, last year, I didn't even sit down. I went to bed at 2am the night before and got up at 6am to start all over with making sure everything was right. It was chaos. I didn't get to talk to many people, I didn't get to enjoy it. I don't even think I ate anything until like 10 that night after cleaning everything up. Everyone had a really good time though and they enjoyed the food, but I didn't get to relax a bit! So this year will be much more low key and it will be much more causal and relaxing.

That pic of her with her nose sticking out is just so lovely, she has such a cute little nose. It´s so funny that her butt is so black but she has that lovely white band and that cutie little black and white face. I just love her.

10 is much easier to handle. It is such hard work when you have too many people trying to make sure there´s enough, food and drink and keeping everything going.

Ah, I get it now.

It rained last night too. We needed the rain because it was so dry for a long time. And it definitely made everything grow. Some of my seeds even sprouted. I'm glad you have some figs on your fig tree. We have a fig tree but it doesn't have any fruit on it. Its so tiny.

Haha, funny about your hubbys friend. I bet he was wishing he had a garden like yours.

That's a good idea cycleing the toys. Its good because if you kept getting new toys and not getting rid of the old ones your whole house would be filled with toys after time, haha.

Ellie sounds like a little pig. Ash doesn't eat as much as her and he's a lot bigger than her. She must have one huge stomach.

The new pictures of Ellie are cute! My favorite is the picture of her little nose sticking out from under the blanket. She's such a silly girl.

Okay, I had no idea that chickens were so complicated. I may have to rethink future plans of chicken ownership. I have enough complicated pets and hobbies without adding egg/chicken management on top of it.

Ellie is SO cute! She looks huge to me too for some reason, but that might be because I have dwarfs. So after she gets spayed do you have any plans for a friend for Ellie? Maybe that would help keep her occupied. Percy was a nightmare with getting into things until he had a companion to bum around with. Now he behaves himself quite well!

I love that pic of Ellie under her blankie! None of my rabbits do that. I wish they would cause I think it's pretty cute. Mine just dig and chew at theirs.

I still can't believe how much food she can pack in her. She probably eats double what Baby does, and is at least a pound or two smaller. That girl must have a very fast metabolism.

I used to have a rabbit that liked to camp in front of the a/c. Once they realize how nice it feels, it does stop being such a scary thing.

I thought about after getting her spayed, getting her a friend. I just don't know how she'll react to another bunny. She's so weird and I really wouldn't want it to go terribly!

Chickens really aren't that difficult. The easiest way to make more eggs is to get an incubator and hatch the eggs like that. If you don't want to hatch the eggs, just take them from the boxes and eat them! Thats what I do.

Ellie isn't big at all, she only weighs about 2 lbs. So she's pretty small. I'm not sure what the weight on nethies is, but its somewhere around that right? She's kind of long when she stretches out, but mostly shes a fat little ball! haha.

I HAVE to go get a new coffee maker today. My coffee tastes like crap and I can't even drink it. haha. I'm such a picky B! Hopefully when my husband gets home he'll want to get another one. LOL

I've been letting AJ in the kitchen more and he's been around Ellie more. They haven't fully met, other than the through the pen. He hasn't touched her yet, but she's getting used to him. She doesn't run from him anymore and she stays laying down when he runs in. The only time she has a problem is when he yells. But I think its going well.
Maybe if I don't get her a rabbit friend after she's spayed, her and AJ can just be best buddies. I just have to teach him to be more gentle with the animals. Ugh. Boys.

I think it must be an illusion in the pictures! My mini satin is exactly two pounds right now and he is only about a foot when stretched out, so she must be about the same.

I think it would be hilarious for her to have a male sidekick if she is accepting of it. Especially if he had another "human" name. Like Ellie and Amos or something.

Didn't you just get a new coffee maker? Does it suck? I hate picking things like that out. You think that you get a good one and then it ends up being crappy.


Edit: After you mentioning Ellie and the fan I thought I'd give it a shot with mine. I've given them marble tiles and ice bottles but never thought of a portable fan for some reason. They figured it out in about two minutes flat after being afraid of it when I started it. Here is Phoebe putting it to good use. I think she's a fan of the new addition. Aha. Ahahaha. I couldn't resist. My rabbits thank you for the idea!

What a cute little bun that is Elizabeth! Is that one of your nethies? Its hard to tell, all I see is small ears and that could be a polish too!

No I didn't get a new coffee maker. I was talking about it and thought I had one picked out, well 2 picked out; but didn't get one because I couldn't decide. Last week I saw one that I liked at walmart and it said that it was $59 and I thought that was reasonable, but then when we looked at lowes.com it was $79 and I thought that was a bit too much. We looked on walmart.com and it was the same, $79 so I said screw it, I don't think I should have to pay that much for it! So I looked online at lowes and walmart (because thats whats near me) and I found one that I thought I like, but the reviews are SO intense! People are really serious about their coffee makers! They were like, it wasn't hot enough, it didn't pour right, the carafe was a weird shape, the water reservoir didn't show the amount of water properly and I couldn't see how much water I was putting in without a light on.
Like totally weird things, my hub and I were reading it and I got really discouraged and didn't want to get one! Because the way I see it, I'm buying something that I'm going to use every day as my life blood and it has to be a good one! I hate making purchases like this!
But my coffee maker is making crappy cups of coffee and they're not even enjoyable anymore. Its like drinking crappy restaurant coffee, only its everyday.

I think if I ever got Ellie a friend, I would probably get a Flemish giant or something large like that. My husband really likes Checkered Giants because he said it looks like they have a racing stripe. Or I would get a Tan, because I really like them and so does my husband. They're like "manly" rabbits! haha. I think it would be really funny to see a tiny rabbit with a giant rabbit, like Kaley's Shya and Kai. haha. Or maybe a French Lop. I really like lops, but I don't know if I could have another one without thinking about Foo too much. But I think a FLop would be okay!
Those are the rabbits I would get if I was going to get another one. LOL I've given it some thought. And yes, I would totally name him another person name! haha.

Tomorrow is AJ's birthday! He doesn't know whats going on, but I'm pretty excited. I don't know what we'll do tomorrow, probably nothing because the real party is on Sunday. But maybe I'll give him a special treat tomorrow. Maybe when I go to the store tonight, I'll get him a stuffed animal or something small.

I have to tell you guys about my husband and then I'm so done, this post is LONG! haha. So if I say anything to Ellie while he's around, he starts singing "Elvira." And its so funny! Or if he sees her and she's awake or begging for food, he'll starting singing it then too. He sings to her like every single day. Its so funny. I swear she knows thats her song! What a spoiled little fat ball! LOL

Have a good day everyone! Happy Tuesday!

Ugh coffeemakers that don't work. You can try to go on amazon and find a coffee maker. That's where I get most of the things I need. I'm sure they sell lots of coffee makers and the good thing is there are reviews for most of their products so you'll know what your buying.

Yeah tiny Ellie with a huge flemish giant would look pretty funny. I've seen pictures of Shya with Kai and it looks funny. And Kai isn't even a flemish giant so a flemish giant would be even bigger. I wonder if he would hide behind Ellie like Kai hides behind Shya.

Yay! tomorrow is AJ's birthday! I can't wait until he gets his tractor.

Haha, that's funny that your husband sings to Ellie. I wonder what she thinks of it.

Ellie used to be scared of him singing because he's loud. But now she's fine with him singing to her! haha.

Actually, Kai is a German Giant and they get bigger than Flemish. I just think Kai is a little smaller than the usual German giant.

I know, I can't wait for him to get his tractor either! When we go to my dads on Thursday for the cookout, he'll get to ride it. Then he'll actually get it on Sunday. But I'm pretty excited about it! LOL
Too bad I have a lot of stuff to do before the party. Ugh. I really hate getting ready for people to come over.

I just started watching How I Met Your Mother, I've never really watched it before and its hilarious! Neil Patrick Harris, is like a gift to the gay community, he's great!
