Almost Wordless Wednesday: Gender Reveal!

This past Friday, while the kids were at school, Hubs and I visited my OBG for my detailed ultrasound scan. We were told we would possibly find out if we were having another daughter or another son if our little one cooperated during the scan.

To be honest it didn’t matter to us but our  daughter wanted a little sister and our son a little brother, so we needed to know to help one of them get excited about his/her sibling’s arrival in February.

 

Our little one was a wiggly bundle throughout the scan so it was a little hard initially to make out anything. But before the session was through, we got a good look, several times through…

to make sure!

Baby 3 Gender Reveal

We decided we’d wait till Hubs got out of work that evening and did a family huddle to do a fun gender reveal with cupcakes.

This was not an easy task as I had less than an hour after the OBG’s check up to rush, pick up my preschooler, get home for about 30 minutes and then rush back out to pick up my 2nd grader.

After a lot of thought, I figured the easiest route to take would be vanilla cupcakes with the appropriate colored filling to do the reveal.

And thanks to Hobby Lobby being close by, a quick trip to the store to pick up a cupcake scoop-out gadget was possible!

 

So yeah, my doughnut cupcakes were made right after I picked my son up and before heading out to get my daughter. (I call them that because I used a recipe I’ve never tried before and possibly would not try again, because my cupcakes were more doughnut textured…yummy but not really very cupcake-y. Lazy me should have stuck to my good ol’ vanilla cupcake recipe that never fails!)

Gender Reveal

They were filled with the appropriate colored filling, topped with melted Lindt white chocolate and garnished with fine milk chocolate shavings on top, while the kids were watching the tele!

The hard part was making the kids wait till Dad walked through that front door.

Oh the torture!!

Gender Reveal Cupcakes

Three and a half hours later when Hubs finally got home, the kids could not wait till after dinner to find out.

So we got everyone to sit at the dining table, served the cupcakes and prayed, thanking God for the baby He’d chosen to bless our family with.

It was then time to take a bite, after doing a quick (really quick!) countdown.

After a few bites, the kids reached the center and learnt that they’ll be welcoming ….

The kids aren't too excited about frosting so each cupcake was filled with organic strawberry preserves

a baby SISTER!!

Yes, the LORD is blessing us with another daughter and I have a wonderful testimony to share about that too.

But not today. (Keep checking back for that.)

 

We’re so thankful…

God has been so good.
