What will it bee...a he or a she???

This past Saturday Dan and I had a gender reveal party for our family and close friends. We found out the gender of Baby T the week before and kept it a secret for over a week! It was Dan's idea to keep it between us for a little while and now I am so glad we did. It was really fun to talk about it knowing that only the two of us knew. I'm pretty sure we tortured our family and friends but in the end they enjoyed the wait too. Beware, this is a picture heavy post!

We did a bee theme for the party. "What will it bee...a he or a she" is what our cake said. The cake turned out AMAZING!

Chase decided to use Adrienne's belly as a road for his truck.
My Dad drove up from Houston for the evening which meant the world to me. He's excited about being a first time grandad!
We had everyone give their suggestions for grandparent names. I think they are taking it as seriously as we are thinking of a name for our baby! And a picture of me and my beautiful mama!
The pups had on bee bandanas. They looked so cute.

We had everyone out down their guess for Baby T! As you can see most of the votes were for boy!

We had my mom cut into the cake to reveal the gender. Dan's parents were on skype so they wouldn't miss the party! We first had her cut into the top portion...she said "this is chocolate is there something you need to tell me..." haha


We are beside ourselves excited to be having a baby girl. I was completely shocked. I would have bet money that we were having a boy! Most of our friends have little boys so it will be nice to have a little girl in the mix. She will have many dates when her Daddy decides he will allow that :) Knowing that we are having a girl and seeing her move around last week makes this all so real. In less than 6 months we will have a little girl in our home and can't be more excited about it!
