Christmas Gifts and a Hoppy New Year

As I mentioned last post, I got some lovely Christmas gifts, perfect stuff for a crazy bunny lady:

This charming fellow was given to me by my younger stepdaughter. His lantern will hold an actual tealight candle, so he will be placed on or in front of our front step once the snow has cleared out, so that people visitng our home will get a proper welcome.

He will also have a companion:

This fellow was one of my husband's presents for me. He's made of metal, and as you can see, he also carries a tealight candle in his lantern, so I will have two greeters for my doorway once I've figured out how I want to arrange them.

At the moment, they are guarding my Christmas tree for me, and doing a fine job of it:

Last, but not least, there's this sweet bun, who was a belated Christmas gift from my sister:

She gave him to me last night at my cousin's, where we were celebrating New Year's. Isn't he sweet?

He's all soft and squishy and sparkly. I want to give him a name, but haven't come up with anything suitable yet.

Speaking of soft and squishy...

"Excuse me? I will not be referred to as 'squishy', thank you very much."

Mr. Mick and I would like to wish everyone and everybun a Hoppy New Year. May the Year of the Rabbit bring you all the best of everything. :)

Lovely and handsome bunny presents! Mr. Mick is not "squishy"--where do you think they got the expression "Buns of Steel"? Happy New Year!

Those are presents fit for a - well - well for a bunny person!!!

Squishy, well fed, plump, adequate, - all words I have been asked not to use in conjuction with Bunny during all of 2011! Probably a good idea!

If we can't talk about squishy, can we at least mention how adorable that cotton ball of a tail is?

Love them all! However, Mr. Squishy and soft Mick is my most favorite of all!
