The Big Reveal Night…
Well, I’m not gonna spill the beans just yet…so for those of you who still don’t know, sit tight through all the party prepping pictures and don’t cheat and scroll to the bottom. RESIST..C’mon you have more self control than that!
Anyway, what an exciting day! I shared with a couple of my best friends that I had the similar excitement and nervousness I had on my wedding day!
It never ceases to amaze me how much gets accomplished operating solo, sans the kiddos. A HUGE thank you to Mimi for caring for the little ones for the day while I was transforming this
A closer look (Can you tell I’m proud of myself?, tee hee)
My last Before and After (I promise)…
Lollipops turned into heart suckers
Taking time for special moments before the guests arrive:
Just my amazingly awesome, incredibly talented, super studly, heroically handsome, oozing with love for his family DAD! 🙂
Some more fun details:
Last chance for final guessing…
And the guest of honor’s table
(since after all, this super duper fun event wouldn’t have been possible without you, TreSoto):
Ironically, just before digging into the revealing cupcakes, the tally was tied at 9 girls and 9 boys with one vote left. Miranda steps up to break the tie (after initially faking us out)
And it’s reveal time!
Drum roll please….
(You can see the determination on my face to race to get to the middle in one massive bite before I hear anyone blurt out the news)
Then. The moment.
What a moment! It was so exciting and almost dreamlike. It was as if this bright blue blob of frosting was glaring me in the face for several minutes and all the shouts and screams surrounding me became a muted, faded background clatter. Seriously, I’m not dramatizing. Okay, maybe just a tad. But it was extremely exciting! I think I was assuming pink because that’s what is comfortable and familiar. But boy, was I surprised! I was stunned, nervous, flabbergasted, elated, anxious all at once. But mostly just overjoyed to be “clued into” God’s plan for our family and celebrate my baby (& this pregnancy) in such a special way!
