Random Stuff

Our phone works again. Whew. I never realized how many people only had our home phone number and not our cell phone numbers. On the bright side, though, voicemail was able to screen out the 8 gazillion calls we received Monday and Tuesday telling us who to vote for and I never had to listen to the robo calls.

Holy week was wonderful. Each year I am more and more thankful for such a wonderful church, church family and the family and friends we have and who share in our Easter Sunday festivities with us. My house hasn't recovered yet and physically I'm exhausted, but I am so thankful for all our Holy Week services, for a joyful Easter service and breakfast after and for everyone who celebrated at our home with us later that day.

The forecast predicts that we might hit the sixties by the end of the week. Horrah!

Still waiting on a renovation versus moving verdict. I wish our builder would hurry and call back. If we're going the addition route I want to hurry up and start!

Really having trouble deciding on a name for our new daughter. Joe and I just aren't reaching a consensus and while we still have lots of time I wish we had a shorter short list. I feel as if I scour our family trees in vain one more time that I just might scream.

Name for new daughter, granddaughter? Anna Adriana Olson.
That was easy. Anna after your maternal greatgrandmother, Adriana after your triple or quadruple great grandmother on your paternal side. Joe gets no input.
Enjoyed the Easter dinner, family and friends and reason for the season. In other words, Christ's death, burial, resurrection.

Name her after a strong woman, so that she can withstand the pressures from her older sibs!

I'm happy you had a beautiful Easter.

Nina - any suggestions?

I like Dad's suggestion - very pretty.

So the Kuypers are into alliteration. Guess I should have figured that out already.

I like Anna quite a bit, but would prefer a stronger name for the middle (perhaps a family surname). Anna Beecher perhaps? Still trying to work on Joe...

With two daughters, one will pick up on Anna, Anna Adriana, Adriana Anna, AA. I remain hopeful. With Olson as the surname, and for Joe's consideration, there are other alliterative possibilities and Olga is one of them.
As for son Alex ... children ... baby names ... there is something to be said here ... and it can wait.

It's not so much the AA thing but it's pretty - it has "flow". The name has to flow....
