The Reward for Surviving Rough Seas

The Reward for Surviving Rough Seas
We are all like sea shells tossed about in rough waters and being re-shaped in wondrous ways. But have you ever contemplated the notion that sea shells have to complete their journey through the rough waters before they get to rest on the shore? Yeah, we are ALL like sea shells and Heaven is The Great Shore.

The "Gender Reveal" Party

Greetings Everybody,
This past Thursday we found out the gender of my unborn grandchild. But we found out in a very cool way: A Gender Reveal Party.

For those of you who do not know what a Gender Reveal Party is, please keep reading. It's a pretty spiffy idea!

Steps to be Taken:
1. Mother-to-be needs to get a very reliable Sonogram.
2. The Sonogram Technician must be told to turn the 
     screen away so that no one else can see it.
3. The technician then accurately determines the 
    gender, and writes either "BOY" or "GIRL" on a slip   
     of paper, and then seals the slip inside an envelope.
4. The sealed envelope is taken to the Baker.
5. The Baker makes a cake with a neutral frosting.

6. (Hint: The inside of the cake will either be Blue for 
     Boy or Pink for Girl, but no one knows until later.)
7. Host a party with family & friends. 
    When it's time for dessert get everybody to place their 
    bets on which gender they think that the baby will be.
8. When all bets are placed, the expectant parents stand    
    and together they cut the cake. All eyes are focused.
8. And Presto, everybody sees the color of the inside of 
    the cake and the gender of the baby is revealed. 
9. This is a wonderful celebration with laughter and 
     squeals and hugs for all.
10. Not to mention...a Great Cake :) the's a Girl

I will have to wait until early June to hold my little granddaughter, but until then I can dream!

Hope you guys enjoyed this idea and will pass it along to folks you love.  

In Him,

Thanks Harriet:)
We are pretty snazzed about the whole thing.

The theme for the first baby's room was Classic Winnie the Pooh, (done with the pastel shades of gold and green, browns and cream colors).

But since the second baby is a girl, they are considering carrying the same theme for her as well...with emphasis on Piglet in order to bring in the Pink shades.

I thought you would like the idea about the cake. lol

Have a wonderful day!

In Him,
