Part of us had a get- together last evening. The other part of us had a their own, bigger get-together in their home state.

The purpose of these two separate get-togethers was to reveal some important, secret information.

Early in the week, an ultra sound had been taken, the sex of the baby had been revealed to the doctor. It was secretly written on two separate pieces of paper. Individual papers, were sealed in two envelopes.

One of the envelopes was delivered to a local bakery, and the other envelope was mailed to our youngest daughter. Both envelopes received the utmost secrecy.

Sunday evening was the time chosen for the revealing information.

We gathered at our oldest daughter and husband's home.

They gathered at their home with friends and family.

The balloons, the plates and napkins, the everything was pink and blue, including the clothing choices of each quest, dependent on what their guess of gender would be. I wore pink, and my husband wore blue.

We had our surprise cake and they had theirs.
We had the Skyp camera set up and ready to go. When your family lives far away, it is a method of being able to see each other and communicate.
We waited eagerly until the planned time, taking into account the time difference of the two states.

Finally, our SIL cut through the big, plain white cake...revealing the pink icing, and at the same
time the cake on our table was revealed. What fun! A little girl will be joining our family in the coming months.

There is no mistaking this color of icing. I was right!

We are all excited...

...and so are these two.

Congratulations to the two of you!

Thanks to these two we learned a new method in revealing the gender of

a precious little one waiting to be born.

What a miracle...a new little baby is being created, and we are thrilled!
