|Siamese tend to be more talkative in general and also tend to have longer life spans than your typical cat, however, many of them have kidney problems later in life, so just be aware of that.
Getting a male or a female kitten is really a choice you will have to make on your own. Personalities are much more important than sex. They all tend to react differently, so taking the cats in to "visit" w/ prospective new kitties (if the shelter allows it) would be best.
I would wait until after the holiday to get the new addition. The shelters are crawling w/ cats right now, but many of them will get adopted to be given as gifts (nopt recommended). Many of these cats will be returned to the shelter after the holidays, because the new owner really did not want them to begin with. Since you are going on a trip, waiting will be best as to minimize the stress on the new one as much as possible.
BTW, I don't think having 3 black kitties in a house would be confusing. I'd think about keeping up w/ your color scheme
