We are very happy to have been able to reveal the sex of the baby to our closest friends at a cookout we held in our backyard on Saturday. To make it more fun, I baked a layer cake, which I frosted white on the outside but told everyone that the middle layer of frosting would be either pink or blue, depending on whether baby is a girl or a boy.
After dinner, I had Chris cut the cake to reveal BLUE for a baby boy!
It was a great party with great people and the kids had an absolute blast: "roasting" hot dogs over the fire on sticks (LOL), and firing off Pop-Its and Sparklers.
And by the looks of this (adorable) face, the cake was pretty good too!

We had our anatomy ultrasound done on June 18th and are thrilled to announce that we are expecting a baby BOY! I have had an overwhelming feeling all along that it is a boy and was not surprised at all when they told me! The kids really enjoyed coming to the ultrasound with us, I love that they are older now and can be so much more a part of things. Here are a few of the full profile pics.

We planted a small (12 X 6 foot) raised bed garden about a month ago or so. We figured we'd start small and see how we do LOL. The kids chose green beans, summer squash, carrots, cucumbers, and lettuce as the seeds. Today we picked the very first crop of organic baby lettuce leaves!! It was enough to fill a large Gladware container. The girls brought it in, washed it up, and promptly ate most of it...they are both like rabbits they eat so much salad LOL. Hopefully we will have much more veggies to pick very soon!

I just had a quick doctor's appointment (weight, bp, heartbeat, pee in a cup LOL) and was able to schedule my *big* ultrasound where we will find out the gender. It is going to be next Thursday, June 18th!! YAY, just 9 more days! The kids are so excited, they will all be coming with us when we find out. So keep those predictions coming, I love to hear 'em!!
