One of the best things was that it seems that everyone who came was just as excited about the big reveal as Nick & I were...to have them all in attendance was perfection. We couldn't have asked for a better party!
My mom & I spent the afternoon decorating the house & preparing for all our guests, mainly just to occupy our time so we weren't tempted to peak in the envelope, or pop in the ultrasound DVD, or cut into that cake ourselves!
And now for some pictures to tell the rest of the story...
A chalkboard for our guests to vote for their pick!
A local baker prepared the cake...Alexandria's Cupcake Cottage...it was her first "gender reveal" cake and the entire staff at the bakery was so excited to be a part!
And then it was time for the big moment. We made sure that my in-laws were on speaker phone in Michigan before picking up the knife. I'm not going to lie, it was incredibly nerve-wrecking...everything was going to change with 2 slices of the knife!
What an incredible party...and a big thanks to my great friend Jennifer for taking almost all of the photos and doing the editing as well! I'm so glad to have those photos to remember one of the greatest nights of this pregnancy so far!
