Blue or Pink? Whaddya Think?

Psalm 113:9:  He settles the childless woman 
in her home as a happy mother of children.

In October, we had the ultrasound tech at our gender appointment write down the sex of the baby on
the picture she took and put it in a sealed envelope to be opened at a later date. 

Eventually we decided on January 1st, when my parents could be here for a small reveal.

So, New Year's Day we had our families and a few close friends over to reveal the gender of this sweet baby due in 11 weeks!!!  WHAT? 

It was a very laid back event.  I threw together some decorations last minute (it was New Year's Day, so my Christmas decor was still up; I just threw some blue and pink in amongst it all...hee hee), and asked everyone to wear either pink or blue, depending on their guess as to the gender of the baby!  

Here are some pics from the night.  It was such a fun time with lots of laughs and love for baby #3.

The front door.  

The cake table and cake.  We have a local gal who makes and decorates cakes and she's amazing!  Not only is it exactly what I asked her for, it was delicious!!!!  

Whaddya think????

I found this cake (left) on Pinterest and loved it, so I took this picture to a local cake maker/decorator (surely there's a word for a person of such sorts), as well as the envelope with the gender written inside to her.  She's self-taught and an amazing talent!  Our cake is on the right.  Not only are the cakes beautiful, but also moist and delicious!  
 bright and cheerful gender reveal cake! cute.

 I found a punch on Pinterest I wanted to try.  The submitter calls it The Best Punch Ever. I was thinking it would be way too much for the small gathering, but boy was I wrong!  It was delicious!  Here's the recipe!

The group in our pinks and blues.  Forgive the quality; the lighting was terrible and I was attempting to use a timer on my camera.  Sigh. 

 Drum roll, please...

As you can see by all of our faces, the actual moment of the reveal was so much fun!  Can you see the color of the cake??

IT'S A GIRL!!!  

We are beyond thrilled to now know we're adding another little girl to the family!  We are blessed and thankful to God each day for answering those prayers we uttered, many times through tears, what seems like so long ago!  To go from not knowing if we would ever be parents, to now be expecting our THIRD, is just so amazing, and only something God could orchestrate.
