Last night we did bake that Challah bread (350F for 30 minutes). It was delicious. Especially wit butter on the plain challah. The kids devoured the chocolate challah with sprinkles.
Mack, really loves his bunny. He doesn't go anywhere without it.
Today we got this idea to go mini putting. The first place we tried, said it was open, but there was no one at all there to let us pay and five us putts and golf balls. We then did some research and found this place that we did end up at. Great place. The kids had a great time, and I even got 2 hole-in-ones!
It was so hot outside, so our next stop was at Dairy Queen. Yum!
Sean enjoyed a slushie.
And Mack didn’t have anything at all. He doesn’t like anything cold. (No ice cream, no freezies, no popsicles). Not sure why he doesn’t – but he’s not a fan. Maybe one day he’ll like them. For now, he doesn’t eat anything (ice) cold.
So we stayed outside until it was time to go home for dinner. The boys ate with Jamie while I took a quick nap (I was forming a headache – and the little nap did some good). After the kids were in bed, I had something quick to eat. Jamie had hockey tonight, so I just watched some mindless TV – and as I am on a bit of a knitting break (I’ve been knitting cute girly things, and now I’m at a loss as to what I want to knit – if that makes any sense – so I decided that I would take a break from knitting this weekend), I played around on Baby Name Genie and as well as some other baby name sites. We so far still can’t come up with a single name we both love/agree on. We still have plenty of time, but everything that we both like, is already used by a family member, or nice names remind us of people we don’t like. Here is our “NO” list:
Sean Edward (dear son #1 first & middle name)
Mackenzie Riley (dear son #2 & middle name)
Jason (brother's middle name & a cousin)
Jamie (husband's name)
Mitchell (husband's middle name, uncle's name)
Zachary (a few cousins with this name)
Jordan (girl cousin Jordyn)
William (nephew, great-uncle)
Mark (sister's boyfriend, husband's step-brother-in-law)
Logan (sister's nephew, don't want her to have 2 nephews named Logan)
Jakob (cousin) (or Jacob)
Steve (hubby's uncle, sister-in-law's boyfriend)
Hymie (hubby's uncle & my grandmother's other son)
Eric (dated 2 Eric's, and will never use that name)
Daniel(cousin & hubby's best friend)
Marc, Adam (hubby's best friends)
Andrew (hubby's cousin)
Dylan (Know a few people who have this name for their son, and one of which I dont really want to be reminded of right now)
Tyler (Know a few people who have this name for their son, and one of which I dont really want to be reminded of right now)
Morty/Mordechai (my father’s name)
Abe/Abraham (my grandfather’s name)
Clifford (2 cousins with this name on the same side of the family)
- The name cannot be biblical (like Moses or Ezra), and can’t be anything of the Christ (like Christian, Christopher, etc…) since we’re Jewish (even if we’re non-practicing). We also don’t want anything like Enzo, Enrico. Maurizio, Darius, Marius, – it has to be English sounding and not Italian, Russian, Polish or Greek. We’re looking for a very “North American or even British” name.
