Meet the newest member of our family, Duke.
(In Karsons words)
I got my dog!! I have wanted him for like three years. He is the best dog I ever knew. I like to play fetch with him. He eats bugs and all my toys. He likes to run with me. He likes to chase the horses. The girls are afraid of him. He likes to take shoes. I love my dog!!
So Karson wasn't kidding the first time he was brave enough to sit on Santa's lap he asked for a dog. Santa looked at me, I shook my head no and then Santa said "well I can't always bring what you want" Karson's face fell, and I felt like the Mother of the year. I have tried to hold him off. I gave him a stuffed dog, then last year I gave him a webkin dog hoping a virtual dog would do, but no, one night while reading him a story about a boy and his dog he turned to me and said "next year I'm going to ask Santa for a real dog so I don't get any more stuffed dogs."
Well Santa came in July this year, when my dad called, let me add seconds after Karson got done telling me once again how much he wanted a dog, and said a man at work had some German short haired puppy's he was giving away and was wondering if we wanted one. I said no, Todd said yes, we now have a dog!

This is a long over due post, but this was how the Barber Family spent the 2011 Fourth of July weekend.
On Monday we spent the day in Menan watching Todd play in a softball tournament, watching the parade and playing some of the games they had in the park.
In between games Bailey liked giving Todd makeovers.
and the girls ended up in Todds lap.
