I’ve been a bit quiet on social media and my blog over the past few months because all of my energy has been focused on getting the basics done.  One of the new basics has been growing a baby!  We are all very excited by the anticipated addition!  When the Little Farmer found out that he’s going to be a big brother he immediately responded, “I’ve always wanted somebody to play with!”

My energy has returned, and I’m excited to share pictures from our gender reveal party.  We are so grateful to my mom and sister-in-law who threw us a most excellent party!

Balloons on streamers made cute decorations and fun games for the kids during the party!

We preferred the idea of a gender reveal party over a shower because it was easier to convince men they should come.  We enjoyed the all inclusive party!

Gender reveal with balloons

We used these balloons for decorations and let go of the color that we wouldn’t need during the gender reveal.

My sister-in-law made some cute, yet simple activities for the guests to enjoy before the big announcement.

Stock photos printed and attached to clothes pins served as an easy way for guests to vote boy or girl

The decorations were cute and functional!

Pieces and parts to a diaper bouquet. These are super cute centerpieces for a gender reveal part or a baby shower.

Seven size 2 diapers were rolled individually and a wide ribbon was tied around the outside. The paper flower was stuck in the top.

When my mom is involved there is always food…lots of good food!  We got BBQ pork from GFS and cooked it in a roasting pan as well as heated up pre-sliced ham for sandwiches in a slow cooker.

Here is the table on which she spent the most time – the dessert table!

pink and blue cakes

How about these amazing cakes?

My mom made an amazing display of desserts for the crowd to enjoy!

Guests brought a package of diapers or wipes.  Some people count their wealth in cash, but we’re at a point in life where we count our wealth in diapers.  We feel really rich after this party 🙂

One of the turkey farmer’s good friends got him this burp cloth. The friend said what several thought – he didn’t know if he would ever see Joe like this 🙂

Here’s a pic of the drink table.  Everything was so cute!

I’m one and I can do what I want!

Even some of the guests were cute.

The big party revealed that we’re expecting a girl!  We’re grateful to all who came and celebrated.  We have so much to be grateful for!
