October Catch-Up

 Wow what a month!

I can't believe how fast October has gone by.

First to start the month I had a birthday. It was a big one. I said goodbye to my 20's. *sniff* Now I'm officially starting my 30's!  Honestly, it wasn't that big of a deal. I still feel 29 at heart. ;)

Then the rest of the month was spent finishing up soccer. With Billy coaching two teams this year it was a bit crazy! We were happy to have our final games and trophy parties to wrap things up.

I have also been busy with my classes I'm taking. Pregnancy does NOT do good things to my brain. I feel the most stupid I've ever been! I can't concentrate and I just don't have any motivation to actually do my homework either. Needless to say, its been quite a struggle this month. I hope next month will be better, and then my classes will end the first week of December. YAY!

For Halloween we got pumpkins for each of the boys to carve themselves this year.  Tonight we had an epic pumpkin carving session complete with junk food. We didn't finish until 10:00pm! Gabe, 2 yrs old, was begging to go to bed poor thing.
At least the boys are getting older so I didn't have to help as much with de-gutting and carving of the pumpkins. I only  had to "de-gut" two pumpkins and help with a third.

I look forward to November, the holidays and spending time with family. The next two months will go by very fast I'm sure. Before I know it, it will be January and we'll be preparing the final WEEKS before the little princess comes. It seems unreal! on to the pictures:

Alex's end of year soccer party, this is the "trophy" this year...a personalized sweatshirt. The boys love it!

Or is he eating it?!

What's in a name?

Naming a person is hard.

I think that some parents don't realize this or don't put as much thought into it. That's where you get names such as Envy Burger, Bread White, I.P. Freely, Jus-N-Tyme, Violence, Holly Wood...the list goes on. (Taken from )

However I like to consider all aspects when I choose a name - possible tease-worthy names, correct spelling, and how does the name sound on a sophisticated adult? For example, you probably won't see the next president of the United States named Talula Does the Hula from Hawaii ( .

Then you've got TWO people trying to agree on names they like...even more added to the baby naming equation.

I don't know if we'll ever come up with a baby name, honestly. Maybe on her birth certificate it will just say "Baby Girl".

So...any ideas or suggestions? We are open to them!
