{A pair}

While in Chinatown we acquired two new pets for the Grover household. I must admit they are really quite cute...and very small.=I told you there were little.

We haven't been able to agree on names for the little guys. Of course the girls have thrown out names such as Princess, Rainbow, and Strawberry.

Bret likes Dwight - after Dwight Eisenhower - for the littlest turtle since it's about the size of a fifty cent piece.

I like Chuck and Bruce. As in Chuck Norris and Bruce Lee...fitting since we got them in Chinatown no?

What do you think we should name them? We are taking name suggestions. If we happen to choose yours a mix of our current favorite songs and a pair of some of the new earrings I'm making in my shop are yours for the taking.

I like Dwight...but after he grows up, the name won't really apply all that well. You should name them both Prince something......that way the girls can pretend they were once princes....oh wait, no, cause then they might try to kiss them and get their lips eaten off......

They are SO cute and tiny!

Bert and Ernie... Tom and Jerry... or Buzz and Woody. (all Graham suggestions... he's green with jealousy right now!)

Oh my goodness.
How about rabbit and hare?

Um...I love turtles, they are my #1 favs. I could tell you fun factoids all day about them but, you know, I'm sure your man has more factoids than I do.

I have had two turtles, a box turtle that lived outside. My dad drilled a hole above its tail in the shell and put a super long aluminum chain on it. It was awesome.
The second turtle was a California desert turtle. It was massive and beautiful.

Whoa! Turtle confession!

Those are too cute...how big will they get? How about sushi and sashimi? NOT saying I would ever, but it sure will get some interesting looks when asked what their names are.

I like dwight, too! Instead of Chuck, how about Norris?

they are so cute I could eat them.
but I won't. because you shouldn't eat turtles.
unless you live in louisiana.

but maybe they need candy names?
like truffle and divinity.

Sarah said...

You are the coolest parents! My kids would die to get to bring home such fun little turtles. They are so little! I love your ring going for a ride on the turtle's back :)

What about Chuck and Norris? Cheech and Chong? I don't even know who those guys are, why are they the only names I can think of?

I also love the ninja turtle idea. A puppy and turtles? I'm not even telling my girls, they would be soooo jealous :)

Pattersons said...

pb & j...peanut butter & jelly! although i do like chuck and bruce:) i thought bret wanted to name one dwight after dwight schrute:)then you could name them dwight and jim!

Carrie said...

oh goodness! those are so cute. I am heading to China town here is San Fran I wonder if I could find some. My kids would love it. What do they eat?

Jo Ann Anderson said...

They are so cute!!! We always name our pets after favorite drinks. Like "Pepper" for Dr. Pepper and "Dew" for Mt. Dew. My vote would be Izzie and Coco...because they look like girl turtles. No idea for boy turtles. I do love chuck norris and bruce lee it seems fitting.

[Morgan] said...

um, you putting your rings on top really did it for me. cute!!!!

what do they eat?

Sarah said...

SO cute and tiny!
Wow, you are getting so many awesome suggestions....

I like Yin and yang or flotsum and jetsum.

Keeping with your girls theme you could do Aladdin and Jasmine, Ariel and Eric (or Flounder), Mulan and Mooshoo...etc.

If you want to 'race' them against each other, you could do something like saydee and beamer (mercedes and BMW), ferrari and jaguar, Honda and Toyota, etc.

How big will they get?

Sarah said...

Just thought of a couple more.... chip and dale or hansel and gretel.

Nours et Colibri said...

What about Murtle? We like Dwight and Norris too

Sean and Cari

Carrie-kins said...

Jamie said...

Cari said...
