DH and I haven't really discussed names yet, either. Both DS and DD were nameless for about a week until we settled on a name that felt right. With DS we had some ideas, but nothing concrete. With...

How old are the kids coming to the football party going to be? That always makes a difference in the type of activities. Also, I think it can be easy to over-plan things once you get going. It sounds...
