The Carrs have this bird that sings. It's a Christmas bird. Somehow we got started in this game where the Carrs try to give us the bird and we give it right back! First they tried to put it in our car. SO, we put it in the Stapfs car. Then the Carrs doorbell ditched us and put the bird underneath a coat they were returning. So, we decided to take it up a notch. We froze the bird inside a gigantic block of ice - no simple thing, mind you! Then we doorbell ditched them. We left the block of ice on the front porch, along with some cookies. Well, that same night the bird was back with us along with a taunting video on facebook! So, I couldn't just leave it at that. Spencer rigged the Carr's door with a rope attached to a brick that would fall on the bird just right to set off it's annoying Christmas song. When Aidan opened the front door the next day, he heard the bird and Spencer received a phone call. Spencer asked for some ground rules. He thinks I'm TOO competitive (is there such a thing?!?!). We now have to keep the bird for a few days before dropping it off with the other family... The bird is currently with the Carrs and I can't wait to see what they'll do to get it back to us!
