I have GREAT news!  {Well . . . it’s great news for me . . . for you, pretty much it changes nothing.}

We have a name for this baby!!

Before you ask, no I’m not sharing it on the blog yet.  I’ll probably wait until after she gets here.

With our other kids, we didn’t tell anyone {well except two really close friends} our babies’ names until after they got here.  Our feeling was that we didn’t want a bunch of people telling us that they didn’t really love our baby’s name, when obviously if it was what we picked, we were in love with it.  On the other hand, if someone introduces you to their adorable little newborn and tells you can’t stand the name they picked, it takes a lot of cojones to say it.

But this time around I feel different.  I care a whole lot less.  Maybe it’s that I’m older, or maybe its that I’ve been through enough at this point in my life that if someone were to tell me they didn’t think the name we picked was pretty enough or worked with our other kids’ names or just didn’t fit, I would probably crack up laughing.

And it’s probably good I feel that way, because we told the kids our name choice over the weekend.  They immediately told us that they didn’t really like it.  (Ha!)  Gavin said that he really thought we should have gone with “Angela” and Quinn suggested that we should name the baby “Nora” instead.  (Her favorite friend is Cathy’s daughter, Nora, and she pretty much thinks all little girls should just go by Nora instead of their given name.)

It’s okay, this was to be expected.  When we introduced Gavin to Quinn for the first time and told him her name he said, “Why did you name her that??” with a tone of utter disgust.  For the record, he was thinking Angela then too.

Yesterday, when I picked Gavin up from school, I asked him, “Did you tell any of your friends your sister’s name?”  He said, “No, I forgot.”  Of course I assumed that he forgot to tell them.  I was wrong.  He forgot the name!  I thought this was hilarious and I joked, “Do you think you will be able to remember it once she’s here.”  He said, “Ummmm . . . . I don’t think so.”

Maybe we should name her Angela!

What’s easier than getting your kids to accept the name you are giving their new sibling?  This Rainbow Fruit Pizza!  It’s a super fun St. Patrick’s day treat, or you know, anytime you are in the mood for a rainbow!  It comes together simply and quickly, and it will be eaten just as fast!  I’m thinking this would be the perfect birthday treat for a kiddo (like Gavin!!) who doesn’t like cake.

Or, you know, to mend fences when you don’t go with the name Angela.

Rainbow Fruit Pizza

Ingredients

  • For the Crust
  • 1 (16.5oz) package of refrigerated sugar cookie dough (I used Pillsbury)
  • For Frosting
  • 2 cups cool whip
  • 1 package of vanilla pudding
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • For the Topping
  • strawberries (5 medium)
  • cantaloupe slices cut out with a star cookie cutter
  • pineapple
  • kiwi (1)
  • blueberries
  • blackberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spread out the cookie dough on a parchment lined baking sheet or a pizza stone (if you want to serve it on a nice plate, it would work best to put it on two pieces of parchment paper that can be pulled out after cooling.)
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the cookie is golden brown. Let cool completely.
  4. Using a handheld mixer on medium, mix the cool whip, pudding mix, and milk together until smooth and fluffy, about three minutes. Spread out on the cooled cookie.
  5. Add the strawberries, then cantaloupe, then pineapple, then kiwi, then blueberries, then blackberries.
  6. Cut and serve!

    I have made one with a shortbread bottom, but never thought to make one with a sugar cookie. Also if you haven’t made a veggie pizza using the Pillsbury pizza crust you need to. The sauce is a mix of cream cheese, sour cream and ranch dressing powder topped with cauliflower, broccoli, peppers, green onions and grated carrots for cheese. Make sure you chop all your veggies really small. I made two for a house warming and there was only 10 people and both disappeared lol.

    What’s in a name? My grandson started 4th grade last week. His new teacher, prior to realizing he was in her class, had assured another little boy that there were no other Ethans in her class. Wrong! When our Ethan introduced himself, she teased, “Oh, no! We can’t have 2 Ethans. You’ll have to go to another room.” Joke. Right?
    The other day after school, he announced his name has been changed to Bob! They have two Ethan’s in his class, so now he’s Bob.

    So pretty & sounds delicious! I want to bring it to my daughter’s preschool potluck in the morning. How would this work if I made it the night before? Any idea how long it should be out of fridge before serving?
