Gender Reveal For Baby Shipley #3

It's a....

I didn't want to ruin the surprise in case you hadn't already seen the video on Facebook.

This afternoon's gender reveal party was everything I wanted, and I had the best time!  (Well, obviously excluding poor Gracie's meltdown).

Grace, being such an awesome friend hosted the party that I threw for myself at her house, and made it super classy and awesome.

She had the sealed envelope since our ultrasound on Tuesday.  I had the technician fill out a pre-made card, and she sealed it with lots of tape.

I lost count of how many people begged Grace to tell her what was inside BEFORE the party.  Clearly people in my life are crazy curious!

 I think I might share all the pictures from our afternoon. It was so perfect!  (well, for all of us but Gracie)
