::ladies and gentlemen, may i have your attention::

i am currently pregnant with our third child.
my husband and i always like to make a big deal out of announcements that come along with pregnancy and the gender.

we found out what we are having september 29th. but due to scheduling conflicts we were unable to get our entire family together until this past monday, october 10th. we told eisley right after we found out and she did a fabulous job keeping our little secret.

for our special announcement we invited both sides of our family over for dinner. everyone wrote down what they thought we were having. i think there ended up being 5 guesses for girl and 4 guesses for boy.

we had all of the adults sit around the table and gave each of them a scroll with a little something inside that would be a dead giveaway.

ready. set. go.
they raced to open their scrolls which i had tied with jute. tricky. tricky.
inside they found a PINK cakepop.
not sure who opened theirs first but it was a close race and they all relished in the news that
we are having a {GIRL}!

we are thrilled. eisley is double thrilled that she is getting a little sister. durgin doesn't quite understand but he will celebrate for sweets.

our precious family has grown tremendously over the last five years. we look forward to adding this little darling to the bunch!
