I'll trade you two babies for one puppy......


Last night when John and the kids returned home from scouts McCall announced that she had decided that she would like to trade her baby brothers for a puppy. Her proposal, one that was well thought out I might add, was that we could give the babies to Carly's Mom and Dad, the Henries from our ward, and that she could get a puppy in exchange. She was matter of fact and completely serious and had already discussed it with John in the car on the way home. John and I both asked her a few times and then told her a few more that she would be sad if we gave the babies away. Her response: "No, I'll be fine, I WANT a puppy!" So I called my friend Shellie Henrie and informed her that on Tuesday she would be getting two babies and that I would need a puppy in exchange. It seems like a fair trade, doesn't it?

Definitely a fair trade! That is so funny. A puppy might be a little easier. Well, I'm excited for you! Can't wait to hear the news. By the way, Britt comes home the 27th of Dec. We are pumped!

I was hoping to share my birthday yesterday with Luke and Logan, but today is just great! Wishing you all the best today and can't wait to see pictures of the cute new additions!! Great idea McCall had - let's see if she is still willing to trade once she sees those cute boys! Come to church and we will gladly sit behind you and take ANY of the kids you will send back to us!! Miss you guys!

Update Update Update!!! How is Mom, how are the babies - pictures, pictures!!!

Do you want to hear something funny - all this time I thought you weren't blogging and it was because my computer does not reset the pages of the blogs I read automatically.... I was stuck on an older post.

Hey, just for the record I was all for the deal. I wonder if McCall made a little something happen for us? I feel honored that she thought I could handle two babies! She is hilarious!
