We do eat pizza occasionally (not a lot because it is much more expensive here). But really for some reason any time I'm getting ready to write something (research paper, blog post, newsletter, etc.) and I'm not sure what to write, I tend to start typing about pizza. So, when I was writing the blog for our Singapore site I ended up with this poem. I decided to share it with you instead of everyone!

We like pizza, too! Remember the days when we got one pizza for the whole family? -- always ate it all, too (and you probably all wished we'd gotten TWO pizzas!) Now there is always some left for the next day.

My guess is that Danny and Betsy had pizza recently (either that or Danny is craving it -- one of those cravings the husband of the pregnant lady gets!)


Pizza is the one food I can guarantee will give me indigestion while I am pregnant.


Eating Pizza is a wonderful thing. I like pizza a lot. Betsy prefers Pizza Hut, but I'm not very picky, I'll take any pizza at all! Pizza is good, pizza is great, thank you Lord for putting it on my plate!

Naming the New Twist

We have settled on a name for our baby boy- Johnathon Wyatt Twist.

Johnathon means "God Has Given" and is in memory of both Grandpa Johan "John" Kjosness and Grandpa John "Jack" Twist. We will most likely call him Jack the most often, since that is a name that I have loved from way back, and it has significance to Matt's family.

Wyatt means "Brave" and is in memory of no one in particular, we just like it! It has a great rough and tumble country boy sound to it, and it really rolls off my tongue as I practice using his full name sternly to put the fear of his Mother into him!

We had his first name picked out long ago, but have struggled with the middle name until just this last weekend when the name Wyatt was suggested to Matt by a co-worker. We both liked it instantly, and once finding that it didn't have a depressing or silly definition, we decided to use it on the spot. The funny part of the story is that we have been joking about naming him Johnathon W. Twist after George W. Bush, and even going so far as to joke about spelling it "Dubaya". So it is quite comical that his middle initial WILL be a "W" after all. :)
