The newlywed Joneses began with just two,

A husband and wife.

Then came a third, a baby named Bryce.

Soon there were four.

Then five, six and seven.

Before they knew it, they were up to eleven!

Additions were added and their home grew and grew,

Next came adoptions and more mouths to feed,

The house started bursting right out at the seams.

Then something evil crept out of the lake

And their numbers

they dwindled
