The big reveal!!

I decided this pregnancy it would be fun to have a gender reveal party! Everyone this time around seemed to have a strong opinion of what they thought I was having, plus we thought it would be fun to reveal it all together as a family! Mike and I had found out the day before (February 8th) and the party wasn't until the 9th. Needless to say this was NOT an easy task to keep it in.

After you came in you were able to pick which team you were one. They were cute pacifier necklaces..

We ate Costco pizza and had a salad bar..

The box I made which had the balloons inside for the big reveal..

I attempted to make Cayden what I thought would be an easy shirt. It was an iron on from Hobby Lobby that said big brother and it was not an easy task. I even returned the first one I bought because I thought there was something wrong with it. Luckily my handy hubby was patient enough to use a safety pin to peel down every little letter. Luckily it lasted most of the night and looked cute =)

After Dinner(yes we made them all wait) it was time for the reveal and we got a picture of each team, here is team blue!
Team pink!

We also played a little "old wives tales" game where Mike would say an old wives tale and I would answer to which it would either mean I was having a boy or girl...the pic below, the question was are you carrying high or low so I was letting everyone else decide =)

The results..

The big reveal!

The first balloon on its way out!
It's a GIRL!!

All three of us having girls, it is pretty crazy!
I have to admit I was convinced it was a girl from the start. My pregnancy was just soo different this time around which I know means nothing but I was convinced. We were both really really hoping for a girl so we were sooo thrilled to find out it was. I somehow convinced my mom by the way I was talking and acting Friday and Saturday before the reveal that it was a boy. It was a happy and shocking surprise for her =)

CUTE idea Katie! You look so cute pregnant. I am SO excited that you're having a girl. They are so, so fun! Kaitlyn was my little tom-boy though so I didn't get the full "girl effect" with her. Sarah though is my girly-girl through and through. :)

What a fun event! I think its cool how you took pics of the "teams" and did the old wives tales. Very sweet! Thanks for sharing. Btw, I would have voted boy just because cousin wise and sibling wise, there are more girls in the fam. I'm happy for you guys. This little lady is gonna rock your socks off!
