Woo hoo!

I finally got a new cell phone. It's about time...

Pebbles in My Pocket

There's a cute scrapbooking store on State Street in Orem called Pebbles in My Pocket. A while ago they came out with this cute scrapbooking idea that I should have thought of myself. I always thought you either had to have a photo album or a scrapbook, but they have a kit where you can do both. And if you don't want to make a whole 12 x 12 page, you can make a little 4 x 6 card and put in one of the picture slots. Genius. I'm hoping I can buy cheaper photo slot holders at Roberts Crafts since this will motivate me to keep a scrapbook. I should probably put together a wedding album before we have a baby.

After much debate, we finally decided on a baby name. I was rooting for Eli or Oliver, but my arguments were to no avail. I finally realized I wasn't ever going to convince Isaac of the awesome-ness of those names. His one and only name preference has always been Joshua, and since I'm not incredibley opposed to it as Isaac is with my name choices, we're just going to go with Joshua. If it had just been because he liked the name, I don't know if I would have been so obliging. But since he likes it, despite it's popularity, due to the Biblical figure, it's noble cause enough to use the name.

Joshua- Hebrew: The Lord is my salvation; In the Old Testament, Joshua led his army in the conquest of Jericho and eventually all of Canaan.

I think we'll use a family name for the middle name. Here are our choices. Which do you like best?
Joshua Isaac or Joshua Curtis or Joshua Lee
