Best Moment this Week? Finding out the gender of this baby!!!!!

We had our Gender Reveal Party today! It was so much fun!

Our ultrasound was at 9am & we told the technician we wanted to know the sex but to print out the parts & write on it what the gender was! She did just that and folded it up so we couldn’t see! When we got home I put it in an envelope with Connor’s help because he wanted to make sure I didn’t peek!!!

We made cupcakes to show what gender side our guest were on!!!

Pink ones

And Blue ones!

We had some finger foods & then everyone decided it was time for the big reveal! Each person chose their cupcake of color!

Michael (BIL), Hilda (SIL), Ron (FIL), Rose (MIL), my Dad, Mom, Aunt & of course, Connor!!!!!

Jason, Me, Robert (BIL), Kristen, Adrianna (niece), Mariah (niece) & of course, Kendall!!!
(My sil Hilda was just in the picture because Mariah wouldn’t stand there without her!)

The reveal part itself was AWESOME!!!! Connor & Kristen were so excited to open the envelope. Kendall was too but was sad because she can’t read! LOL!!

Connor opened the envelope first..

Then big sister took over!!

Jason trying his best to peek at the results!!!

The BIG reveal & everyone’s reaction here…

Their reactions is pictures!!!

Kendall was very excited which made me glad because a few days before she said “if it’s a baby brudder I’m going to ask to send him BACK!”

I do believe this was the most excited person at the party!!!

The proof!!!

Our soon to be family of 6!!!

I have to say I was very, very shocked to say the very least! I was for sure it was a girl! But I am excited no matter what because he is a healthy baby!!!
