Who to vote for??

So, did anyone watch the Republican debate last night? It was really good! Very eye opening, that's for sure! I went into watching the debate a Guiliani fan, yet, somehow when the debate was over, came out a Huckabee fan. So, I have no idea who I'm voting for, now! I still have quite sometime to think about it, but I really like Huckabee!
Anyhow, on a separate note, since we are not telling anyone what we are naming our son, it's driving Alex nuts. She absolutely can NOT keep a secret (i.e. telling Rebecca I was pregnant when I was only like 9 or 10 weeks along), so we can't tell her, either. So, she's been bugging me and bugging me about it. Finally, last night she pulled the "If you don't tell me, then you don't love me" card. So, thinking quickly, I told her we were naming him Carl, after my grandfather on my mothers side (totally not true, but it keeps her quiet). She was like "CARL????!!....Like the nerd on Jimmy Neutron????!!!" Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket I just said yes, it is a family name and that's the name we like. So, obviously not thinking about my consequences, Alex goes to school and tells her teacher, friends...etc. that her little baby brother is going to be named Carl. Carl Rivera. Yea...that "flows".
So, tomorrow I am doing a Girl Scout project with her and the troop again and all the moms will be there and I know they are going to be all fake and like "Carl....that's a um....nice name". This should be interesting! I'll keep you posted on how that goes!
Aside from Christmas coming up, I have to plan Alex's birthday. She wanted to go to Great Wolf Lodge and I was all on board until I found out they charge a mere $400 per night! I could buy this child a Playstation 3 PLUS games for that amount! So, looks like we are doing an old school birthday party at the house. Ugh....holidays are extra stressful for me because of her birthday, too! Oh, well :)
I'll keep you all posted on the fun adventures of my life!

I have a coupon for a night for $199. I believe you may have to use it on a Sunday, but you guys could go into work/school late! Just a thought! Cute name - Carl!

That's hilarious about Carl. When I think of the name Carl, I think of Carl Winslow from Family Matters.

Good luck with the birthday party planning. I've got to get working on Leland's 30th. He doesn't know but I want to plan a big ole party for him and I think I'm going to do a barn theme and have a big barn dance in it. We'll see...any ideas are welcome.

Thanks, Sommer! I'm already on "The List" here at work, so I really can't push my luck :( I would love to do it, though!
