Cause One Addiction Is Not Enough.

I'm going to pretend my illusion that I've had for the past 10 years that I'm living on a safe street wasn't just shattered by waking up to find the window smashed in my minivan and my iPod (customized with purple swarovski crystals) stolen. Turns out a bunch of cars on our street and in our neighborhood were all hit the same night... same MO... windows smashed and iPods stolen. But instead of dwelling on all that unpleasantness, let's move on to something much more cheerful... BUNNIES!!!

I'm fairly certain Marshall will never ever let me walk in a pet store again. The whole thing was kind of hazy... all I remember is that we walked into the pet store at the mall because the kids asked if we could. They had a cage full of little fuzzy wuzzy bunnies and that was the last thing I could remember. Next thing I knew, I was back in the car with a box of bunnies on my lap. I think someone must have drugged me.

Aren't they just the cutest things though? Just look at those fuzzy wuzzy bunnies! As you will remember, we are over the whole backyard bunny thing. But lucky for us that we happened to have one extra, empty bunny cage just waiting to be filled.

Now the hard part... picking a name. We have pets with Buffy names and Harry Potter names. Clearly these bunnies need to have Twilight names. We have decided these bunnies (a boy and a girl) will either be "Edward and Bella" or "Jasper and Alice". I'm pretty sure the grey one is a girl and pretty sure the white one is a boy. I checked. Twice. Not easy to do on baby bunnies. So... Haven and Marlie want the bunnies to be named "Edward and Bella". Marshall and Seamus want the bunnies to be named "Jasper and Alice". I could really go either way.

So here's where you come in. I'll decide it by a vote. Leave me a comment and tell me which of those choices I should pick. I'll announce the names on Monday.

You need another look at them to help you decide?

And in case you're curious, this means our pet count is back up to 14.

  2. Hi, its clearly Bella and Edward judging by the way she is lokking wholly protected by him. It couldnt be Alice and Jasper as Alice and Jasper would stand side by side equally protective..Omg I've just realised what a total twilight geek I am! Love Sarah

  6. Hi Julie,

    I'll admit it. I'm scared of vampire movies, even unscary vampire movies; but bunnies aren't scary at all.

    I like Alice and Jasper because I didn't know they were vampire names. I have a feeling my vote won't count.

  7. Edward and Bella .... DEFINITELY!!! ^^

  8. How can this be a possible vote?! They HAVE to be Edward and Bella!!!!!

  9. Oh, definitely Jasper and Alice. After all, if they escape and chew up your insulation who do you want to be mad at? Edward? No, Edward is too perfect to chew insulation. (Of course, I have no problem yelling "Bad Bella! No!" at my puppy. It gets rid of my Bella-aggression for the whole "Team Jacob" debacle in Eclipse.)

  10. WHAT??????? is that thing sniffing the bunnies????

    ReplyDelete
  11. They are so cute!!! I don't know enough about Twilight to weigh in. How about Frick and Frack?

    ReplyDelete
  12. What about choosing a name from each group? Like: Jasper and Bella or Edward and Alice? That would make all the kiddos happy! :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. I have to agree with Sarah - the protective stance of the white bunny clearly makes him Edward. They are super cute.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I like Alice and Jasper. I think that is because I prefer those names not because I think the bunnies look like an Alice and Jasper versus Edward and Bella. So there.

    ReplyDelete
  15. My initial vote was Alice/Jasper but I have to agree w/Stacie's observation... I'm going to weigh in as Edward and Bella, that's my vote!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I think Edward and Bella are more , well, regal and graceful names.(like horses maybe?) But Jasper and Alice are better bunny names. lol, are you getting horses too?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Edward and Bella!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'd vote for Alice and Edward if it was a choice but it's not so I'm going with Alice and Jasper because Alice ROCKS! Good luck deciding!

  19. I am so sorry about your ipod getting swiped. That stinks!

    My vote is for Alice and Jasper definitely! But Emmett and Rosalie sounds good too like someone else mentioned.

    oh and i have been writing to you on shrinking... just fyi

    ReplyDelete
  20. Definitely Bella & Edward!
    They are so stinkin' cute :)

    So sorry to hear about your van/ipod...

    ReplyDelete
  21. Bella and Edward would be the obvious choice- therefore I would go with Alice and Jasper. Although, I agree with your first commenter that Rosalie and Emmett would be apropos.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'll go with Bella and Edward...little vampy bunnies...can we then get a picture of "Why am I covered in feathers?" LOLz.

  23. When they start genetically engineering them in fashion colors, your family will totally need to take away your bank cards, checkbook, and strip your car of all loose change...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh yes, Edward and Bella is a must. But I also like the reason for Emmett and Rosalie.

  25. Fuzzy wuzzy baby bunnies are a big weakness for me too .. I get a pinch in my stomach when I have to walk away without them.

    I vote for Edward and Bella .. she's a pretty bunny, in an understated kind of way. And he doesn't look very freaked, he looks very relaxed and confident. Plus, he's leaning his head over hers, while she cuddles into his side .. Classic Bella/Edward =-)

  26. totally Jasper and Alice!

    Jasper is such a bunny name!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm throwing my vote in for Jasper and Alice ;)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I vote for Bella and Edward .

    They are so cute. Makes me almost want another bunny but one is enough for us right now.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Definitely Alice & Jasper!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I am going to be different and vote for Esme and Carlisle. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Ashley: Definitely Jasper & Alice, after viewing their pictures!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I too think that Jasper and Alice are the names to choose. :) (Alison)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Actually, I think you should name them Jenni, and Jiggety...

    But my SECOND choice would be Edward and Bella.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I can see why you walked out with them. They are just adorable. As much as I want to say "Bella and Edward", I think Jasper and Alice make perfect bunny names. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Jasper and Alice. It's more "sneaky" that way... subtle, if you will.

    And ummm you're keeping boy and girl bunnies in the same hutch? You sure your count is only at 14? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Jasper/Alice - simply because they need a little love thrown their way after having almost all their lines cut from the movie...

    ReplyDelete
  37. Esme and Carlisle. Oh, that wasn't my choice? Victoria and James... wait, not a good end. Kim and Jared--silly me, they're bunnies not puppies.

    What were my choices again?

    I vote Jasper/Alice

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm betting on Alice (and Jasper). :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. They are cute! I vote for Bella and Edward. My kids would love to live with you at your house. We have no pets at all and they want one so bad.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love getting a chance to help name these adorable bunnies. My three daughters have some funny bunny stories and memories to share with their kids someday. I think that you should compromise here and one should be called Jasper and the other one Bella, very dignified names if I say so myself.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Before I decide, I need more information? Has the boy bunny been neutered? If not, to stay true to the spirit of Twilight, they would have to be Bella and Edward as they were the only two capable of reproducing. Am I right?

    And sorry about the car. You have had no good very bad luck with people taking your things lately. You know, a dog would probably alert you to these things. Come on, what is one more?

  42. JULIE>>>>>> you must have been drugged!!!!!!! lmao! A boy and a girl bunny.. now you're going to have baby bunnies! I like the names Bella and Edward!

    ReplyDelete
  43. OOoooohhhh! Bunnies! Bunnies! Bunnies! :) :) :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I think that Jasper and Alice make for better bunny names.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh my, are you saying while I was offline sick (cough, cough) you bought two NEW bunnies? BAHAHAHAHAHA You are so funny:) I love bunnies.
