A Little Thanksgiving Humor

A lovely sentiment..... ;) 

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have never a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!

The impossible "Perfect" baby name.

First of all, the mommies want to apologize for the lack of posting lately. We promise to get it together and share more of our hilarious and ridiculous day to day lives.

I have this problem where I feel that I must come up with THE perfect name.

I don't want anything too trendy, too strange, too common, made up, etc. Rather not use a celebrity baby name either. Something traditional yet not overused. There must be the perfect combination of syllables. Our last name is only one syllable, so I feel that it must be 2 syllables or more!

To make matters worse, my husband and I seem to have very differing taste in names. The names I liked 5 years ago are not necessarily the same names that I like today. While I'm fairly certain that Mr L's favorite girls names are still the same. With Munchkin, Mr. L was dead set on a certain name and basically anything else I suggested was nixed. With Pumpkin, I suggested one name and Luckily Mr L agreed and then that was it. With Baby #3 on the way, (Yes, #3- we're very excited!) I just haven't found anything that I like. At the moment, we don't know the gender so I'm not going to stress TOO much just yet but I foresee much stressing in my near future!

How did all you mommies and daddies out there come up with names?? Did you both agree or did someone "win?" Was it as stressful for you as it is for me? Feel free to comment with suggestions. I need all the help I can get or this baby is going to end up being named Hurricane or Batman.
