bunny video contest

    
Last week, we asked you to share our bunny video with your kids and submit their reactons on facebook. We decided to make a contest out of it, and we have finally voted on the 3 cutest/funniest responses — winners get a voucher for 6 free easter cards!! Here are all of the replies, with the winners at the end, mixed in with some of our favorite bunny portraits so far this year.
    


    
“My 13 month old called it a dog”
    
“Good…… I had my pictures with the bunny too….. Mommy whistle” – Maddie-almost 3yrs old
    

    
‎”‘hop hop’ and started jumping around like a bunny! My daughter is 2″
    
“That was weally cool! I love the doggies!” -Jude age 3
    

    
“Crazy , then asked if he could have one too!”
    
“My 2 year old daughter pointed to each one she wanted. And then when I asked her what she thought she said ‘hmm, that’s a silly bunny'”
    

    
“My 13 month old kept saying ‘oooo wow’ and then pointed to the pictures of him and his brother with the bunnies from last year.”
    
“While my daughter is watching the video she’s picking her nose, then uses a tissue. Didn’t say a word until the middle part and said ‘what about the poop, I don’t want them to poop and pee on me!’ Then cracked up at the end when the bunnies knocked down the blocks.”
    

    
“Megan said..’Mom when the bunny comes home with us where are you going to sleep…your bed is bigger than mine so he gets yours……'”
    
“Robert said..’wow that bunny must be really soft….you know mommy..like your hair before you made it that funny color….'”
    

    
“‎(we did our Easter shoot w the girls, plus the baby AND our new baby cousin so we decided the bunnies would be too much this year) so, ella just said -‘ But you said the bunnies were sick this year and no kids get to hold them?!?!’ :( Oops!”
    
“My son Ethan says ‘aaaawww that’s the cutest most fun video I’ve ever seen!!!!!’ age 11.”
    

    
“My daughter Elsey says ‘omg those bun buns are sssoooo adorable and cute!!!!! ‘ Age 8.”
    
“My 1 1/2 year old said, ‘Ooooooh wow! Oooooh….big… tasty….’ The thinks that they are the chocolate easter bunnies! Really, I do feed him! HaHa!”
    

    
“Kendall: ‘AAAAmazing, I wanna pat him.’ Me : ‘We’ll go in a few days’ Kendall: ‘When I wake up from my nap?’ Me: ‘No Kendall in a few days.’ Kendall: ‘Alright, alright.’ Can’t wait to come in Friday for some pics!”
    
“ZACH my 2 1/2 y/o said ‘look bunny'” and poked every bunny. then when the video ended he started crying and saying ‘video, video'”
    

    
“At first my three year old had her typical reaction to seeing something soft and cuddly. She said, ‘Oh, how sweet.’. Then, several minutes later she said, ‘I want to go to the rainbow.’ I said, ‘What do you mean? Where’s the rainbow?’ She replied, ‘Where the bunnies live.'”
    
“My 1.5 year old screeched and said ‘key’ which is 1.5yearold for ‘kitty or anything with four legs and fur.'”
    

    
~ And the three winners…. ~
    
“My 4 year old told my 7 week old ‘don’t worry, bunnies won’t bite your fingers because your fingers aren’t carrots'”
    
“After commenting on how cute the bunnies are: ‘Mommy, if I hold them they’re not going to poop on me right? Cuz, then, that would be sort of gross.'”
    
“LOL, our bunny session isn’t til April so I’m learning that we have to practice our animals soon! My 2-yr old son ‘Why is her sleeping on that doggy, him’s not a pillow.'”
