Gender Reveal Party – It’s A…

Hey, hey! I hope y’all had a great weekend! It feels like ours was a whirlwind of things to do and attend. I’ve been on pins and needles to share this post with you because we found out on Thursday night what the gender of our little munchkin is! My sister had a gender reveal party with her second pregnancy and it was so fun, so we decided to do it too.

We gathered family and friends at our church kitchen and everyone had to choose whether they thought this baby is a boy or a girl. I found the little cupcake toppers at Hobby Lobby. They were perfect!

We couldn’t have a party without food, so I found these adorable plates at Hobby Lobby. So cute!

My sister made chocolate no-bake cookies and we had fruit, veggies and two different homemade pizzas. Yum!

And then there was the cake. A friend made the cake and only she and the ultra-sound tech knew the gender of our baby. Yes, I had to use incredible self-control to not open the envelope to find out the “secret.”

I picked up two dozen roses at Kroger that were on clearance and used my Ballard Designs Knock-off Silhouette vase since we were celebrating a little person.

Here we go…cutting into the cake.

We were so surprised, happy and excited!

Ridley, on the other hand, wasn’t impressed at all. Ha!

I’m thinking…”This is so very cool, but what in the world have I gotten myself into?”

Because I’m the momma of a three year old little man and another baby boy on the way!! Yay!!!!!

I just have to brag for a minute. This is my sister at 40 weeks and me at 20 weeks.  I’m seriously so proud of my sister. This is her third baby in 2 years and 2 months {no twins!}. She is a natural birthing rockstar and a fabulous momma. Doctors told her she would never have children, so I guess God showed them up! We’ll be welcoming her new little one any day now!

By this summer, my parents will have gone from no grandchildren to five in 3 1/2 years {four boys and one girl}. Let’s just say that visiting mom and dad with all the kiddos is l.o.u.d. Ha!

So, that’s how we celebrated finding out if we’re having a boy or a girl. It was incredible to celebrate this moment surrounded by people we love.

Have you ever been to a gender reveal party? Did you find out or wait for a surprise on the birth day?

I’m linking up to the Weekend Wrap Up Party!
