One year ago today...

Last year I remember being so anxious! BOY or GIRL?

We decided to have a gender reveal party to find out what we were having.

YOU are invited to our party!

I went to the doctor that day and told the ultrasound tech to write on a note card what we were having and then put it in a secure envelope.


We waited ALL DAY! I wasn't even tempted to look in the envelope....ok maybe a little! But I was strong and didn't.

I went to my neighbors house and told her to call a lady from church who makes amazing cakes! I waited downstairs while she went upstairs, opened the envelope and told her what it was so she could make a cake with either pink or blue frosting in the middle.


I wore pink and Grant wore blue.  We had everyone who came dress in the color they thought this baby might be :)



And so you all know the outcome! Maybe, unless you are new :) But this video reveals it all!!

Such a fun surprise and way to find out!

 Thanks for coming to my party! :)
