gender reveal party


Last weekend we had our Gender Reveal Party! My friend Vashti offered to throw it for us and we were ecstatic! All of my closest Texas friends were there and even Dave had a friend show up. It was so great to be surrounded by some of the people I hold closest to my heart! I just wish I lived closer to my family for events like these. There were so many kids running around and it was just the best day. We socialized, snacked on food, and played some awkward pregnancy games. I've never had so many people staring at my boobs at once haha. I cut the cake and served it and it was SO good! And then came time for the reveal! Our reveal was a pinata. It was so cute! It was a little box with streamers tied to the end of it. One of the streamers would release the bottom causing all the colored confetti to fall out. Dave and I started tugging at the streamers and nothing happened. I was too impatient so I just grabbed all of them and pulled hard! And out fell all the pink confetti!
(sorry for the poor quality, camera phones don't work too well with lots of fast movements!)

We are thrilled to be adding a daughter to our growing family and cannot wait for her arrival!
