Baby Ellis' Gender Reveal Party!

 We finally had our Gender Reveal Party this weekend!!  We have been looking forward to it for weeks!
 Here's the scoop.  We went to the doctor for our 16 week sonogram and had them write the sex of the baby in a card.  We didn't peek :)  Then, we took the card to the bakery and had them make cupcakes filled with pink or blue filling.  We invited our friends and family over so that we could all find out together!  Here are some of the pics from the day.

Hubby and I made that cupcake stand - how cute is that??

This is the first time I got to use my china serving dish!  I was so excited!

Ooh La La in Katy made the best cupcakes I have ever had.  They are huge, but amazing.

They sat at our house for a full 24 hours before the party.  I wanted to peek inside one so badly!

The spread.  The tree is one of our placecard trees from our wedding.  My Mom made it, which makes it so special.

Me and my Sister, Val

My Mom brought these and put them in one of our wedding vases.  Aren't they beautiful?

My Pappa and his Sisters.  It meant so much to me that they came!

My precious sister

My sister and Me, before I was dressed and ready to go!

Here we are...cutting into the cupcake!





And we couldn't be happier.  My Daddy thanked me twice for his Grandson, Hubby teared up, and my Pappa was so excited!!
