What do you think?

We have a name for our baby girl. I'm am so excited that I found one this early. This is my least favorite part of having a baby. Lex and I pray for months and ponder and pray some more. However, Lex left it all up to me this time. The only problem is ... Lex HATES the name I picked out! I am SET on the name and refuse to change it. I have prayed about it and actually changed one of the middle names because I didn't feel it was right for her to have the one I orginally chose. I think that it is beautiful and he thinks that it sounds OLD and doesn't FLOW!

Ciela 'Elele Hope Olayan

Pronunciation: See-ella (Ciela) Uh-lay-lay ('Elele)

In Spanish, Cielo means HEAVEN. Because I changed the "O" to an "A" it no longer means heaven, but it does in my mind. 'Elele means MESSENGER in Hawaiian. So my translation of her name means heaven(ly) messenger of hope. I LOVE it! Lex didn't help me find it and hasn't come up with something else, so this is it as far as I am concerned. Just curious as to what you think :)

Veteran's Day

Both of my parents had work off for Veteran's Day. The fam decided to head up to Julian for lunch, pie, goodies, and quality time.

More Halloween ...

We started the weekend off celebrating Josh's 28th Birthday! It was fun to dress up and hang out with friends and family.

Trick or Treating in the Collins' neighborhood

Jazzy was happy running on the sidewalk and knocking on the doors, she didn't care much about the candy.

Desea was feeling under the weather, but she still had it in her to grab hand fulls of candy!

Late as usual ...

Another one of our FHE Halloween Festivities included pumpkin carving and caramel apples. The girls loved it!

Desea didn't mind getting her hands slimy from the pumpkin seeds

Jazzy, on the other hand, couldn't stand the feeling :)
