Gender Reveal Party

On Sunday, February 9th we hosted a gender reveal party at our house.  We ordered a cake from Byerly’s and invited family and friends over to find out the gender of the baby.
It’s a BOY!!!

I also had a gender reveal snack for my students on Monday, February 10.  They were very excited to find out the gender of the baby.  They all cheered when I held up the piece of cake with blue frosting.  It was so much fun celebrating with them.
