Now, I realize that I do have a significant amount of time left until this new one comes...BUT Kaye and I CANNOT find a name that we both like. Literally, not even 1. I have given him options like you wouldn't believe and he says he hates ALL of them. I am flummoxed.

Names that I really like are:

  1. Rhys (as in Reece)
  2. Finn
  3. Luca
  4. Declan
  5. Sawyer
  6. Rafe
  7. Lachlan
  8. Bodhi
  9. Henry
  10. Pacey...I know, I know, that really is how much I love him! (Sidenote...totally had a dream last night that I was Joey and Pacey and Dawson were fighting over me. :=) I'm such a geek!
  11. Cullen
  12. Deacon
  13. And even though I don't think I could ever name my child this..I LOVE it! Etienne! It's just so, so, so, romantic? Is that the right word? You know what I mean.
  14. Seamus (though I think that it's just to close too Marcus but I love the name)
  15. Jasper

Either way, I think that I've tried pretty hard to find something there. Kaye on the other hand thinks that my choices are total crap.

I think that I need a little help. Any names that you totally love, throw them out. Maybe Kaye might actually like a name...or two. I just don't want to be sitting there in the hospital room being pushed into something stupid that I don't even know that I like. This is one of those key choices in life that you want to get right, you know?

Anyway, calling all those with opinions. Bring it on!

Beautiful Harper Grace

I have to admit, when I found out that Friday night my sister had her first child and it was a GIRL, I was jealous and a little disappointed for me. We didn't get to go up this last weekend to visit because all of my children had a rather nasty case of pink eye, but my dad did send pictures. She is just so gorgeous! I cannot wait to meet her. I'm dealing with the fact that I am going to be the only one who will be having a boy...again....and loving that I am now a full blown "blood" auntie, a first for me.

Congratulations to Chelsea and Kris! Harper is so pretty...I can't wait to give her a snuggle :) AND spoil her rotten!

Pot lucks in 3 Hills.

Now, I am in no way trying to be rude or mean about the people who I go to church with. They are mostly just nice humble people. BUT, their pot lucks are terrible. Picture this...

Creamed spinach
Plain orange jello in a 9 x 13 sprayed with some sort of canned ''whipped cream.''
Hamburger broth
Stale buns
Dry cupcakes with from the can icing
Crab salad

I guess that's what happens when you live in a branch with seniors and people with bad food allergies. You end up with only half edible food. We will be having pot lucks every 3rd Sunday of the month from now on. I can't wait!

You know they are sick when....

I have learned the importance of the flu shot. I have never bothered with them before but this week was absolutely miserable. Marcus caught something and brought it home with him on Friday or so, and each one of us has taken our turn with it. We have literally been through bottles of Tylenol for fevers, cough syrup for Marcus, and unbelievable amounts of tissue. I have not been that sick in probably 5 years. It was crazy! The last to get it is Elijah and he is just so cute when he's calm that I couldn't help but capture him sitting and NOT screaming...for once. Next year, we are all going to be getting that darn flu shot! Wow am I glad that I'm over that one!

* Note: Please ignore the state of my son's shirt. I'm sure you all understand.
