We found out that we are going to have another sweet baby girl!!
We had decided to have a "Gender Reveal Party" where we invited our friends and family over to find out what we were having.

With my handsome husband

I decorated the house with lots of fun blue and pink goodies, snacks, sweets, and punch

I set up an area with our favorite girl and boy names and had everyone vote on their favorite ones as they arrived

The crazy thing is that not only did our friends and family not know what we were having but we didn't either!!
We had an ultrasound on Monday and I had the tech write down what it was on a card and had her seal it in an envelope. We then took it to a local store and picked out a pink and blue blanket. Then I gave the blankets, the sealed envelope and some cash to the girl at the register and asked her to open the card and gift wrap the correct blanket, with the envelope, and the receipt and change so we would have NO IDEA what we were having.

So we waited until TUESDAY NIGHT, that's right, Tuesday to have our reveal party. What were we thinking?!!!:) The anticipation was killing me having to wait so long but it really made it so much fun. So after mingling around for awhile after everyone got there we got my mom pulled up on Skype and my family on the phone. My dad was great and set up a conference call that my family could call in on so that we would only have to have one phone to mess with and so that everyone could find out at the same time.

Here we are finding the "pink" blanket. It's hard to see but Kennedy's mouth was dropped open in this picture. I love it!

And I love Taylor's expression in this one. Can you tell she is excited!

We really didn't care what we were having but were very anxious to find out so we would just know. And now we know that we will be having another little princess to bring home. And the blanket we picked out will be the one we bring her home in. I am very excited to have the next four months to pray over this soft little blanket that I will give to my precious gift from God.

My wonderful SIL Melissa, BIL Ryan, and beautiful niece Makenna
They are so sweet to have drove a couple hours to be with us when we found out!

With April

With Ashley

With some great friends that I have grown up with. Sheena, her little princess Joclyn, Kim, and Lyndsey

I have to say that I have been blessed with so many wonderful friends. Old and new. And I can't express how much it meant to me to have them all there on such a special night for us! And thank the Lord for Skype and conference calls. It is hard to live away from my family but technology sure makes it easier:)
