29. The Allen Nuggets gender reveal party was a total success! Due to the 897655467 text messages and phone calls I was receiving on Saturday, I posted this video on Facebook shortly after we cut the cake but if you haven't seen it yet, here is our gender reveal!
It was so exciting!
I went with the "What Will They Bee?" theme and was very pleased. We used Juju's Cakes in Arlington, TX and I was ecstatic with the cake Nicole produced! Not only was it super pretty, it tasted great too.
There were tons of goodies (see photo above) so we still have lots of left over cake. I made the cake balls myself using Diva's Can Cook blog instructions, which were very helpful.
We had a great turn out of friends and family, so thanks to all who came to celebrate with us. We waited about and hour and half after the party start time to ensure everyone was able to arrive.
There were so many people that had never even heard of a gender reveal party. I know they are a kind of new idea but I thought more people would know about them. Most of the party goers thought that The Hubs and I knew the gender results already and were just sharing with everyone else. Once we explained that NO ONE knew what we were having, the excitement level rose greatly. As the video showed, there was a lot of cheering and it was really, really fun. I would recommend a gender reveal party for everyone. If you have the patience to wait to find out. Even the Hubs, that wasn't all that keen on the idea, thought it was a lot of fun when we actually got to cutting the cake.
We are beyond thrilled, and I'm feeling very blessed, as I always said I wanted to boys to raise (never knew they'd come as a package together)!
