In case you’ve somehow missed it around here, it’s been one big event after another in this family for well over a year now. It was two college graduations on the same day and then two weddings last year (three weeks apart). And then house searches and renovations and then a high school graduation.
And then the two sweetest announcements–that two grands are joining the family by Christmas (fingers crossed!) –and due one week apart! Abby and Beau had their ultrasound a couple of weeks ago and we had a simple family dinner on the porch for the big reveal! Abby had made cupcakes with the surprise color inside inside and none of us could wait to bite into them so we ate dessert first and found out there is a girl on the way!
They’re elated and so are we! I had felt strongly this would be a girl, so I wasn’t totally shocked!
But with Grant and Miriam, it was a different story. I had felt at first it was to be a boy. Maybe because I was relating to our our situation with Grant being our firstborn. But as time drew closer to find out, I kept feeling it could be a girl. So ten days after the first reveal, we had another family dinner for the next surprise!
Grant and Miriam brought cake pops with just one of them having the surprise reveal inside! Again, we ate our dessert first and my mom had the winning cake pop to reveal it is another girl!!
Two sweet girly cousins living right across the street from each other and sharing lots of fun is almost too much! We are all ready and excited to extend the family to a party of 10. Praying everyday for healthy babies and mamas. Thanks so much to all of you who have reached out and celebrated with us on Instagram and Facebook! We’l be designing and planning nurseries soon so stay tuned!
