Elizabeth's Gender Reveal Party

Last week we got to go to Elizabeth and Joseph's gender reveal party. She is due December 26th and we could not be happier! About a week before the party we came up with a fun way for everyone to find out. We made a scavenger hunt! Everyone came to the party in a pink or blue shirt depending on what they thought they were having. I was in a gender neutral color since I already knew. ;)

Elizabeth and Joseph in their pink and blue. They already knew what it was also.
The pink team! Jason, Leah, Joseph, Jo Anne, Stella, Haley, Terry and Cody.
The blue team! Cam, Marian, Kyle, Eliz, Ben, Andrew, Katie, Zach and Trisha. The teams almost came out even which made it even more fun.


Elizabeth and I came up with 5 clues for each team. The blue team had clues that all had to do with boys. For example, "Daddy will have to be brave, when he teaches his son to _______". The answer was "shave" so they went to find Joseph's razor. On the razor was another clue and so on and so on. The clues for the pink team all had to do with girl things. One example was, "Little girls will always laugh, when they take a bubble ________". The answer was "bath" so they went to the bathtub for their next clue. The clues took them around the house and a few took them outside. The last clue card said, "Go to the living room for your final clue."


Once both teams were in the living room I handed them their final clue at the same time. Here is the pink team reading it.

The final clue said, "Add up the numbers on the back of your clue cards. If the numbers equal Baby Ray's due date (26) then shout out, 'It's a ________'." So the teams were racing at this point and the blue team got to shout out, "IT'S A BOY!!!" Yay!! We are so excited to have another little boy at Fam Night. :)
Katie and Andrew "cheers-ing" their blue cupcakes since they got it right.<>

So happy for another boy. :)


Elizabeth and Joseph opening some fun gifts for their baby. We had such a fun night! I'm so glad we got to be a part of their special night. We can't wait to meet baby Asa!

What a cute idea! Looks like everyone had fun!

Not sure if you are still having trouble with the bottle but we started having trouble about the same time you did and we just successfully finished "bottle bootcamp". I wrote about it on my blog...hope it helps!
