Borrow-a-baby Program

Here in the Fort Collins Hutchin's household we have started a program called "borrow-a-baby" where you can test drive one of our smaller versions to see how you feel about babies. We take check or cash for our baby rental program. It is similar to that service where you can rent a puppy by the hour. Rog and Christine decided to try it out two weeks ago and I think they passed with flying colors. Besides the baby test drive, they were just fun to hang around, play games with and take to the metal sculpture zoo. Thanks for visiting!

Reminded me of this picture- Mac and Zach 2011

Rog is reading him the Ensign, they were good buddies before he left

Basket Buddy

 Just because he's cute and fun to be around. He is the "star" in our house right now. Lincoln runs or hops and the other children clap. We all love him, what's not to love?

Half Monkey

This is my oldest monkey-child. When you get too old (9 yr)to play on playground then you start climbing on top of it. At least we know that if his chosen profession doesn't work out he can become a coconut harvester and shimmy up trees for a living.

Snack Shack for Nepal

A few weeks ago we had a family home evening about helping those who are less fortunate and I suggested we have a lemonade stand and donate the profits to the church's humanitarian aid fund. (I had looked into other charitable organizations but you really just can't beat 100% of your money going to help those it is intended to help.) I spent the morning making 3 batches of giant chocolate chip cookies and with the help of many little squeezers, squeezed about 40 lemons to make homemade lemonade. (all told about $20 investment) Gabe suggested we set up at the local park so that is where we headed. We sold each for $1 to make things easy for both seller and buyers. After about 2 hours we sold 3/4 of our inventory and decided to call it a wrap. They made $42 and gathered $4 in donations. I will donate the proceeds online for the children. They did a great job, although we are going to have to practice some of their customer service etiquette . The children decided they liked it so much, they want to do it again next week. We will see if I am up to it. Perhaps just the cookies and otter-pops or something.I was very proud of them though.
