5 Minutes for Mom Virtual Shower

So, the girls over at 5 minutes for mom, are both having babies (actually Janice just did and Susan is about to) and so they are having a giveaway for the shower. They have all kinds of great gifts, you gotta go over and check it out for yourself.

So, to be part of the shower, there are questions you can answer, you know, like a fun shower game.

One of the questions is what is your favorite name for a boy and a girl. Clearly, my favorite name is the peanut's, and that is Lilla Michel. I don't usually talk about it on my blog, but it is so lovely, I wanted to mention it. In case you don't know, Lilla was a girl we worked with on our first mission trip to Hungary. It means beauty, innocence and purity. Michel is a derivitive of Michael, for my husband. If we are ever to have another girl, we might pick Alexandra and call her Zandi, after another girl in Hungary. I really like Anna and Ava too.

For a boy we talked about Nathaniel and call him Nate. That's cute and just sounds cool!

The other question I wanted to answer was my favorite baby book. I love just about anything by Sandra Boynton. If you are not familiar with her and have toddlers, you should be! Her books are so cute, and funny! I love to read them myself. They are plenty short enough and colorful enough and they are all board books so they hold up well. She also has some musical discs out that are great! Our favorite is probably Snuggle Puppy, it is adorable and the peanut loves to sing along when it says, "Oooo, I love you...mwah!" So cute!

I am not sure how I found your blog, but I stumbled upon it some time back and have enjoyed visiting. I hope you don't mind!
Things that have kept me visiting: you love dogs, you love Jesus (should that be first?) You wear Colts Blue...(my best friend is a die hard Colts fan and I have since caught the fever). Your love of missions and your love for your family...

Thanks for letting me stop by!
