The Reveal in pictures.

Well, we are still in shock over here at the W house hold. I think this whole girl thing may take a minute to soak in.

I wanted to tell the story about how the party came about so I have it down somewhere. I ended up having an ultrasound last Tuesday where they were 100% sure about the gender of the baby and the ball got rolling in a major way. We had the tech write the gender in a card and seal it. Donna who is our pastors wife and dear friend to us as a couple had the hard task of being the keeper of the secret. We wanted to be surprised with everyone so we took Donna the piñata, fillers (blue and pink) and the sealed card. It was the longest week of my life! I don't know how we waited 35w to find out Jack was a boy. Our friend Jane had thrown a lovely bridal shower the weekend before and offered to bring all the tables, and decorations. Pam and Bethany came with cameras in hand, and everyone else with food to share! It ended up being perfect weather and the perfect celebration of our girl! We even had some family from New Orleans come in town. We love that they were so excited to share in this they drove 14hrs to be here for only close to 50. Now onto the pictures!!!

The Piñata, the yellow highchair dad completely refinished for us. I love it! The gender guesses (how cute is the chalkboard Pam made) and the sweets!

The outside got transformed. Thanks Jane!
Everyone made their guesses!
Then it was time... Emotional was an understatement. Jackson was so happy.
All that pink!!!

It makes me teary all over again.
