Just an old fashioned update

Well since I don't have much to post, I'll just tell about how life has been lately.
Mitch left on Sunday for work training in Austin, Texas. When he got there, he turned on the TV and watched in wonder as the TV stations were issuing tornado warnings left and right! Hmmm... nothing says welcome to Texas like a tornado huh? Well, lucky for us, nothing ever came near his hotel.
Although he has only been gone for 4 days, it seems like a month! The kids are more difficult to deal with- or maybe I'm just tired and don't get that break at the end of the day when he comes home. It really makes me love and appreciate what a wonderful husband and father he is!

I am just waddling through life! I am about 25 weeks along now. Some good news is that the doctors said our baby boy was measuring big and so they moved my due date from July 7 to June 28! Yeah! Any woman who's had a baby knows this is good news! I am feeling the little guy more regularly lately, it took a while because apparently he is at the very bottom of the placenta.
We are still trying to think of baby boy names. Mitch has his favorites, but I just keep coming up with different ones and he just shakes his head in defeat. It's not that I don't like the names he does, because I do, I just can't decide what sounds good with our last name.
So for all those who are wondering what names we are debating... here they are:
Creed, Cache, Colton (which we think might be too close to Collin), and the newest one (which Cameron came up with) is Cyden... although, I think this is usually spelled with a K instead of a C. So that one is probably out too. So what does everyone think?

Not much has changed with the kids. We are getting ready for Easter this weekend. I also have a wedding cake this weekend, so Easter is pretty much shot. But that's okay, because I never understood what the point of Easter bunnies, baskets and candy had anything to do with the real reason we celebrate Easter. Of course, around Nampa, apparently the reason most people celebrate Easter is because Jesus died. It's weird, strange people come to my door and handout all sorts of stuff about the death of Jesus and that's all they focus on. I feel like handing them a Book of Mormon and telling them what we think Easter is about. But me being the not-so-confident person that I am, usually just take their handout and throw it away as soon as the door is shut. I'm not much of a missionary I guess!
Well I've rambled on enough for now. I gotta go stop the kids from fighting... and Spring Break just started! Great!!!!!

So you are doing the cake all alone!? I didnt know Mitch was going to be gone! I like the name Creed, I also think that Coy, Kit (YES I KNOW WHAT YOU ARE THINKING, BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE THE REST!)Caleb, Carson, Cass, Cort, Conner (not high on the list, but whatever!)

HEY! I agree with one of Katie's picks for names - Conner. Combined with McClellan, it sounds very scottish...and VERY COOL! Chicks would be all over him.

That definitely has my vote.
