Earlier this summer, we found out some awesome news! We were going to add a new, precious little one to our family circle!!! You can not imagine the celebration this news brought. However, we were going to have to wait patiently as our little addition grew and developed and wouldn't join us until ... April, 2015! Until then we could plan and scheme and have fun getting ready. We could also find out the gender of the baby!!! That is exactly what happened this week!
On Monday, we all gathered together as family and friends for a "Gender Reveal" party. Everyone showed up in pink or blue, depending on what they thought the baby was ... girl or boy. The theme for the night was ...
The house was decorated with giant cupcakes and muffins on the walls. There was also muffin and cupcake liner garland hanging around the room.
We also spend a day making the cutest "Retro Ovens" ever! They went along perfectly with the evening. Here they are:
For dinner, we served various soups and ate ... what else but ... MUFFINS! (Blueberry, chocolate, banana nut, and corn bread ... all delicious!)
After dinner, we played a couple of games ... "Baking Up The Perfect Name" and "Mama Cupcake & Papa Muffin - Finish My Sentence". Then came the reason we were all there ... the gender reveal!
We decided to do the reveal with a cake. (We thought it went perfectly with the whole "baking" theme of the night.) And here is the amazing cake we had made:
It had a "Sweet Little Cupcake" cake on top ...
and a "Handsome Stud Muffin" cake on the bottom!
And inside ... it held the secret!!!
It was perfect for our evening of fun and excitement!
And what were the results? What was the precious little one's gender? Here you go ...
A "Handsome Stud Muffin" will be joining our family circle early next year!!! We all can't wait to hold our beautiful little boy, grandson, nephew, etc! We can't wait to see his precious face and give him tons of cuddles and kisses ... and of course read a few stories along the way! ; )
