All you need is a tissue box, some slips of paper, a pen, and you have a baby name!! 1/4/08

So Emma is very concerned about what we are going to name this baby. She had a bright idea coming home from the airport the other night. She told us that when we get home we need to take a tissue box- pull all of the tissues out of it- and everyone put in names into the tissue box that we like. We have to write a girls name on one side of the paper and a boys name on the other side. When we pull it out whatever name is on the slip is the baby’s name.

She was very proud of herself.

John said- Emma that is not going to work because you girls will put in names like Polly Pocket, Holly Hobby and then the baby will be stuck with that name. He let them know that He and I would work on a name for the baby.

She protested- we will only put in cute names. She looked at me and said do you like snowflake? (fresh off the sledding slopes)

I said- Well I don't know about that

Late that night she came into my room and said you know Mom- Polly is not that bad of a name! ?

Dream Big Emma- Dream Big!

I agree. Polly isn't that bad of a name!

We wanted to name our second born after two missionary kids: Candice and Andrew. We asked Melinda what we could call her, and she said, "Candra." And that stuck! She was two at the time. However, names may not be best in the hands of children's wisdom.
