The Gender Party



Well, I had intentions of sharing my little fall tutorial today, however this weekend we were consumed with excitement over the big gender reveal! And, I just can't contain myself...I've got to share.


We did this a few years ago when I was pregnant with Ross, and it was, absolutely, positively, the most fun party we'd ever had!
We couldn't NOT do something for this baby.


So, we went to the ultrasound last Monday...


...asked the tech to firmly seal up the results in an envelop...


...and handed it over to the cake lady.


Saturday night, we gathered up our family...


... and cut the cake.


And, wouldn't you know it?


It's a BOY!


I wish you could feel our excitement...because it's radiating through all of us right now!

Pin It Now!

  13. Awesome! I didn't know it was a surprise to you too, that makes the party even better. Also makes me wonder with six kids, why I didn't think of something like this before who ever did!

    Congrat's on your impending blue bundle.
