Baby Names

So, maybe we are getting a girl in August -

here are two names we are considering -

1) Emily
2) Sierra

tell me - my two or three faithful followers, what do you think? Which name do you like better and why?

Well, we talk about this all the time byt I'll kick off the comments anyway. I like Sierra but it just doesn't sound that good in dutch. It's just a little bit different but I'd have to get used to it maybe.

I do like Emily, it sounds good. I can imagine myself using this name every day.

I've just gotten so used to the name Sierra since before Ella was born b/c it was a name you liked then... and now i'm kind of use to it... so by the name the next girl is born i *might* get used to Emily.
I think emily is an over used name-maybe just here, but I like Sierra better. Nathan will tell you to name her Emily because he wants to use the name Sierra, but it doesn't matter...whoever gets it first ya know :)

Oh Audree - thanks for telling me that b/c I feel sort of bad not using the name Sierra b/c I know my Mom has said in the past that she wants someone to use it.... Mark and I have decided on a name and it's not Emily or Sierra. It is spanish though - and begins with an S... that is all I will tell you for now... ha ha ha... Mark says I can't keep a secret and he wants to wait to reveal the name at a later date... so there ya go!

Sounds like you've chosen your name...but I still like Sierra. It has ties to where you have spent part of your the foot of the Sierra Nevadas.

Best Streets to Trick or Treat in Dixie, Southern Utah

This is going to have to be an ongoing post... what I mean, is I might have to update it again next year.

This is going to be a very big deal this year. My kids have never experienced real American Trick or Treating. I have talked about it, and they have seen it on tv shows over the years and they are very excited. As am I!

This is why I wanted to pick a neighborhood that would be awesome for their first experience. Originally, I had planned to spend the weekend with my brother and his family in Spanish Fork, Utah. They live in a neighborhood with about a million kids so it was going to be perfect... but since the flu has affected everyone lately, and since my whole family was sick to death of road trips since we moved back here, we decided to stay in St. George.

This posed a problem for me. I didn't know where the best street was. After a quick google search, I found nothing! No one has blogged about this, at least, not in the first three or four pages of a google search.

I did find …

The Tilted Kiln, St George, Utah... pottery and ceramics!

The Tilted Kiln
215 W St. George Blvd
Hours: Tuesday - Friday 12:00-8:00; Saturday 10:00-6:00

Today the children and I got to play with clay at The Tilted Kiln in St. George. I had driven past this pottery studio many times not realizing all the fun things it has to offer.

It's not just a pottery shop, though there is a section that some great local artists have pottery for sale. It has a section of ceramics that you can buy and paint yourself and they will cook it again after that. 

That was fun to see. So many great ideas, from painting a large platter with the family name or something like "Dad's Burgers"to piggy banks and garden gnomes. They also had quite a few Christmas related ceramic crafts to paint.

My kids and I had so much fun browsing the ideas and we surely will find ourselves back in the shop come summer vacation! :)

You can come back for parties or other group activities and they have cla…

Suzy's Closet Dress Rentals, Hurricane, Utah

Suzy's Closet Dress Rentals
692 N 150 W
Hurricane, Utah
By appointment only.

Last week I had the opportunity to visit with Dena Humphries of Hurricane. She runs Suzy's Closet. It's a non profit Dress Rental in Hurricane. The goal of this non-profit is to provide modest affordable dresses for young women. But, anyone can "rent" a dress - you don't have to be young.

Dena said she had someone going to a Marine ball in Southern California that was older that was borrowing a dress.

The cost to rent dresses is $35 per dress. This covers the cost of dry cleaning therefore, Dena doesn't make anything extra, hence non-profit.

Dena runs this business out of her house, namely out of her living and family rooms.

Why doesn't she call it Dena's Closet? She said because she thought it didn't sound good. She chose the name Suzy because it was cute and similar to her middle name Sue.

How did she get into the business or charity rather?

She got into it becaus…
