the reveal party

Steve's sister Kasey is pregnant with baby #3. She's had two boys in a row and so there was big excitement building for baby #3 to be a girl. They decided that they would bring a blue duck and a pink duck to their ultrasound appt today and have the nurse put whichever color duck in a box for the baby's gender in secret and they were going to open it tonight at a party with family and friends. We both wore pink!
Steve's mom made two cheesecakes, one with blue topping and one with pink and each guest was supposed to take the piece that they thought was the baby's gender.

The final tally 15 girl votes and 6 boy votes.
After we ate they opened the box and found...THE PINK DUCK! The room cheered with excitement, Kasey started crying, the parental inlaws were getting misty, the babies were crying cause it was so loud - chaos I tell you. But I am so happy it was a girl and excited for the Kelley's to welcome Baby Tate in 4 months. YAH for GIRLS!

Not to be repetitive, but that is such a cute idea!! We'll keep that in mind for our third. How can I have 4 sisters and have 2 little boys!! Oh the madness...
Hey-I just realized we never called you guys while we were at my moms! I think you were at Lake Powell though. Hopefully we can catch you at Christmas!!
