He or She... what will it be...

He or She... cut and see... a reveal party for baby denton... what sweet friends we have to make this moment so special for us.  I recently went to a reveal party for a friend here in Singapore and it was awesome to be their to watch as they learned the gender of their baby.  Usually the doctor is the only one who gets to see this and it was very special to be there... so when we learned we were having #2 I really wanted to my friends to be there with Blake, Pierce and I when we found out.

This was a small party of a set of friends that have been praying alongside us for years for baby #2, who have walked this journey with us, who have encouraged us and never lost hope.  I love these people like they are family and this just made this night even more special.

So will it be a boy or a girl... well you ask how do we know... We were in Korea (you will learn later why) but we had a scan and the doctor asked if we knew yet (we were only 15 weeks) and we said no and told her a little about this reveal party that our friends were throwing for us later and that if she could tell would she write it on a piece of paper for us.  So she did, sweet lady but we really did not know if she wrote it in Korean or English... when we got back to Singapore I gave the envelope (that Blake wanted to look at so bad) to a friend and she gave it to a cake lady and the cake lady was to make a cake with the batter matching the color of the sex.  So the cake lady and the doctor in Korea were the only ones to know.

Here we are showing up to the party... not a great picture but I hope you can see the excitement on our faces... Blake, Pierce and I were so excited just to know and to get this party started....

As we entered the party we had to make our guess public by either placing a hockey (Blake loves hockey) shoe on the board for a boy and a high heel shoe if we think it is a girl.  Blake for weeks has had a feeling it was a boy and was pretty convincing...

But to be fair I went with girl....

When Pierce was asked what he thought it was... he also went straight to the hockey skate... I wonder who will be correct...

The eating and chatting was first... yummy food.

And the kids will play...

Of course there was a game that involved asking us questions and getting some audience answers...based on the way we answered the question it supposedly could predict if we were having a boy or a girl.

Here is our fearless leader... love you Lori...

Here are some pics of my faces... some questions were just funny...

Some questions I was like "what"... like when I was asked to stand up and turn around and then the audience was asked if you could tell if I was pregnant from the back or not... I told them to be nice... they answered correctly... love them.

And then Blake had some fun too.. this question in particular was directed towards him "do you think your wife is more moody or more laid back since her pregnancy"... he was not so nice... but look at that cute face...

We don't have a pic of the finished tally but the girl baby one based on our answers...

And here more people thought we were having a boy than a girl... who will be right... the people or the game?

Now it is time for the cake... all we have to do is cut and see...


We were so excited... hurry lets cut into the cake...


Well we just have so many pics you will have to wait until tomorrow to find out... we had to wait so now you do too... but we are so excited to tell you...
Tell us your guess in the comments (and no cheating if you already know)...
