As I mentioned on...

Facebook already we are having a GIRL :) We are pretty excited about having one of each. I am excited about all the super cute things in pink. I would be lying if I said I wasn't a little nervous about having a girl though.

We wanted to do something a little special to tell all our family what we were having. Sense we won't be having a baby shower or anything like that this time, we wanted to have a special get together with our family. The plan was for me to bake a cake and have it be pink, so when we cut into it everyone would be surprised. Well I baked my pink cake (a little to long so it turned brown) and it was a train wreck! It fell into pieces when I tried to get it out of the pan - it was not salvageable!

At the last minute I had to run to the grocery store and buy a cake. A cute one with pink flowers on it and I had them write "It's a girl". It was a in a clear container so I wrapped it up in tissue paper and yellow ribbon. Then I let big brother Cain open it up in front of everyone.

We also had ribbons made up and all of our family had to wear their guess - either pink or blue. There were only 2 blue ribbons out of everyone! Everyone has been saying from the start that they thought it would be a girl. I didn't get many pictures of the day like I wanted - always happens to me.

So the next thing I am looking to do is sell a bunch of boy clothes that I have. I went through all the totes of stuff and kept what I could use for a girl and now I need to make space. I am not sure what the best way to do this is - should I wait and have a garage sale in the Spring? There are a few mom to mom sales coming up - anyone ever had a table at one of those? Not to sure on how that all works? Let me know if you know anything about them.
