We're having a.....

Saturday night we had the big cake cutting to find out if we would be expecting a boy or a girl. Basically we had our technician write the sex down on a piece of paper and we took the paper to a baker with instructions to make the cake batter blue for a boy or pink for a girl. We were able to share the moment that we found out with 20 of our closest friends and family.

Thank you to all of our family and friends that came to share this special moment with us! We are so blessed to have so many wonderful people that care about us!



As promised, here I have added pics from the 20 week sonogram and a few pics from the party.

The little guy...

Look at Chris's face: he is so excited that it is a boy! :)


Here are the awesome cookies that Jess and Karen helped me decorate...


Darcy, Karen and me...


Gearing up for the l'il Sooner! Thanks, Terry, Anna and Kara!


Aunt Darcy got the baby a ton of adorable ducky fun stuff!


Because we knew that Norman was a long way to drive, we had these cards ready to send out if our parents couldn't make it. We mailed each card in a brown envelope and placed a green sticker on the girl card and a yellow sticker on the boy card. We called Chris's mom as soon as we cut the cake to tell her which one to open! We just wanted it to be a little more fun than just saying "It's a boy!" over the phone.
