Broken Promises

Worst blogger ever.  I apologize to the probably 2 people that have been waiting for the gender reveal.  I promise I would post it yesterday, and I did not.  I was blessed enough for the fam to stay until Saturday, so we had everyone back over for breakfast and did some shopping and swimming.  But now moving on to the fun stuff!

And the answer is...

I had a really cool video of the reveal but it won't upload so I am putting this to my facebook.

Of course, Sour couldn't be more excited that he produced a male offspring.  But everyday that has passed I am getting more and more excited about having a momma's boy.  I grew up playing sports, so I can't wait to play t-ball.  And shoot you teenage boys tend to be a little less crazy than girls.

So we were going to do the colored balloon release, but I realized it had become very popular and if you know me, I don't really like to do what everyone else is doing.  I started to do some brain storming, and came up with this super fun and interactive reveal.  We already had the ginormous box and tons of balloons, so we blew up all different colored balloons and put pieces of paper in some of the balloons.  But the answer was only in one balloon.  So everyone was expecting a big release but instead they had to work for the reveal!  It was so much fun, and we had the best reaction!

I am going to also get used to taking pictures of the baby and for this blog.  I took pre party pics of all the decor, but no pics during the party.  I wanted team blue and team pink pictures, and pics with our family, but no such luck!.  My cousin Darla even brought these adorable pickle shaped cookies that I didn't get a picture of.  So here are the pre-party pics...

So there we have it, lil nugget is a BOY!  We can't wait to put a name to his sweet face and start his nursery!  And yes I have now purchased things for this sweet lil stinker!

Today Sour and I are counting our many blessings, including each other.  We are spending some time together unwinding and resting and just soaking in all the overwhelming love.
