What’s In A Name? Letters Dummy!

We just wanted to give everyone a head’s up.   We are planning on having a Naming Ceremony, but it’s not going to be for a couple of months.  We wanted to try and make it as convenient as possible for anyone that might want to come.  (But we totally understand if people can’t.  Please don’t feel obligated!)  We tried to avoid all other family events and tried to pick a date that would not conflict with any big events in Charlotte… besides my birthday, that is.

Sooo… We are shooting for the weekend of May 18th.  We still have to try and finalize the details with the temple, so it’s not official, but it seems to be the weekend that works out best for the most people.   And for those of you who love NASCAR and want to get your redneck on, you could visit Lowes Motor Speedway on May 17th for the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race and stay until May 25th and enjoy the Coca-Cola 600.   Yee.  Haw.

Oh!  Will you look at that!!!  It also happens to be the weekend of MY birthday!  How conveeeeenient!  Feel free to brings me gifts.  I’m registered at Best Buy.  Daddy needs a 72-inch, hi-def, plasma screen TV.  Baby would want me to be happy.  She’s so unselfish.

More info to come as we get it.

BLOG Is Not A Four-Letter Word! Oh, Wait…

Hey everyone!  Welcome to the wonderful world of blogs.  You’re excited, I can tell.  You feel like you’re doing something edgy.  Something hip.  Something all those crazy kids keep talking about using their weird, scary words.  This is Web 2.0 baby!  The 21st century!  This is the future!  YEAH!!!Samantha’s Belly

Relax.  It’s just a blog.  Any numb nut can have one these days.  I’m a shining example of that.  I just figured with Baby Schrager on the way, this might be the best way to communicate to people who wanted the latest info on the big event.  There might even be pictures if I can find someone who has a camera.

The blog also makes it easy for everyone to chat with each other, leave comments, ask questions and generally harass me.  I’m glad I thought of it, (after reading The Playskool Guide for Expectant Fathers…seriously.  Look at page 232.)

I think this is going to be our main source of communication over the next few weeks.  I’ll be able to write updates from the hospital as well since our room will have WiFi.  I’m sure I’ll have plenty of time to kill.

I hope everyone is doing well and we’ll chat soon.
