Gender Reveal Party

As previously mentioned, David and I are eagerly expecting the arrival of our new baby.  Last month we had a gender reveal party with my family to find out if we are having a boy or girl.

We told the ultrasound technician up front that we didn't want her to use pronouns or tell us the gender when she saw "the" shot.  She had us look away when she came to that part of the anatomy scan, then stepped out of the room and called my mom with the news.  As we were finishing the rest of the appointment, my mom was on the other side of town filling a white lantern with pink or blue confetti.

Once we got home and our guests arrived, David and I stood under the lantern and each pulled one of the two strings attached to the bottom.  The flap of paper holding the confetti in came loose, spilling down a lovely shade of pink paper.

It's been a little over a month since we found out we're having a baby girl and we're still finding pink confetti all over the house, but it was very much worth it and gives me something to smile about as I vacuum the house.
