On December 9, we had planned to have our annual RUF Christmas party and it coincidentally worked out that we found out the gender of our newest addition around the same time. We already had a lot of activities on the agenda: eating delicious food (of course), white elephant gift exchange, ugly sweater competition, carols and lessons. So, we decided we better keep it short and sweet with the gender reveal. We asked the students to sign their name and vote for what "team" they were on...
We had this adorable cake made for the occasion; I thought they did such a good job! For those of you that may not know about how the gender reveal cake works -- when you cut into the cake, the icing inside reveals the gender of the baby - either blue for boy or pink for girl.
Here's the video as we cut into the cake! Anna and Kate didn't know!
The verdict: IT'S A BOY!! We weren't sure if God would provide another son for us after we lost our Brooks in 2011, but we are SO excited to have another one join our family!
It was fun to celebrate the growth of our family with the students of RUF. :) Thank you for rejoicing with us!
