Genesis 2:19

Genesis 2:19
And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

This was the theme of our family home evening lesson yesterday (with my brother Zac's family and my parents) in which we chose the name of our new puppy. We all wrote down names and we drew 3 and voted.

The winner: "Bloke"

This name was supplied by my niece Hannah. I think she really wanted to say "Blake" but messed up and Gina quickly wrote down the first one she said. It's definitely starting to suit him.

He's a Basset Hound/Collie/? mutt and I think he's going to be a great dog. He's been preparing me for the baby with his nighttime potty breaks, but he is really starting to catch on.

P.S. Did I mention Craig's contribution was "Barfy-McToots" I'm really happy it wasn't one of the final 3. The kids really liked that one and I'm sure it would have been the winner. I can imagine myself calling that out my door at night.

A True Artist

A true artist isn't held within the boundaries of a desk and chair. Luckily we have a cement floor.

Or...the mom could just be too tired to regulate :)
