IT'S A....

Before, I spoil the ending let me explain. 
Over the weekend we had a gender reveal party-  
 prior to the party we went to the Dr. Office to find out the gender of the babe inside. But instead of finding out at the office they wrote it on a paper and stuck it in an envelope so we wouldn't be tempted to look.

We handed the envelope off to a friend, and she created a cake where it was either dyed pink or blue inside. We invited friends and family to come to our little gender reveal party and we all found out the gender together.
We played a game of old wives tales to see if the tales were true- they weren't.
And we had everyone guess before the cutting of the cake took place.
We were so surprised with the results but we are so excited to have this little one come into our family!



Here were a few of the people who were there- the top couple created the beautiful cake for us- 
thanks again Laurel and Trevor!
