If you remember, my husband's 30th birthday was on Thanksgiving this year. We thought we might open our card the night before, but we were so exhausted from going to a friendsgiving dinner, that we decided to wait until the next morning when we would be fresh. All night both of us had multiple dreams about opening the card and for both of us, every time we opened the card in our dreams it was a boy.
Our dreams came true!! Right after we opened the card (which also had an ultrasound picture of the genitals that I've decided to keep private), I gave my husband his other birthday present.
He's a huge Raider fan and I ordered this onsie thinking it could work for a boy or a girl, but it REALLY works for a boy.
As for our reactions? I didn't cry right away. I think my husband did, but he'd probably deny it. Later, though, when I went to pick up the cupcakes and to Starbucks, I was crying every five minutes. I would see something that made me think of our little boy and cry. It was quite overwhelming.
After picking up the cupcakes, we decided to try some to make sure the filling was the correct color.
They got it right! Crumbs was just great about this whole thing. I definitely recommend them for your custom cupcake needs.
I just know our little boy will grow up to be as handsome and kind as this guy. I can only hope he will be as silly :)
Then, we headed to my parents' house for some cupcakes and champagne, followed by Thanksgiving dinner.
Here's our plate of cupcakes with my little question mark flags. They were super cute, but not super practical. Nobody wants to bite into a cupcake with a toothpick in it, so you have to take it out first, but with the surprise filling, you run the risk of seeing the color on the toothpick before the big bite. It was a nice idea, but I wouldn't recommend it.
I love this picture! They haven't even seen the color yet, but they're so excited!
Can you see my brother doing the fist pump YES! ? He was super excited, as were my mom and stepdad.
After some more cooking and football watching, it was time for dinner. My parents make the BEST turkey ever. The breast is so moist and flavorful, even the next day out of the microwave.
After dinner we played games and had underdone pumpkin pie (that I made - whoops) while watching Christmas movies.
The next day, we headed to my husband's parents' house for our second reveal and third thanksgiving. However, we wanted to wait until my husband's sister, nieces, and friends arrived the next day, so we had to hold in our news. It was so hard and I think my husband slipped once, but he tried to cover it.
Finally, everyone (well, almost) arrived and we got another plate of cupcakes ready.
This time, only a couple of flags in the middle.
From left, Molly (sister-in-law), Ann (mother-in-law), Gwen (niece), Stella (adorable baby), and Caren (our sweet friend). My husband's dad and our other niece Ava are just out of the frame of the picture.
Yay! It was so funny to see if people would bite into the cupcake or rip it in half to see the color.
This will be their first grandson (they have two granddaughters), so they are so excited.
Our friends Paul and Jackie arrived a little late, but we saved cupcakes for them!
Jackie lost a bet on this one!
Then, it was time for dinner. My husband worked hard carving out 12 mini pumpkins for a delicious butternut squash soup that Ann made from squash from her garden.
Adorable and delicious!
I wasn't quite sick of turkey yet, but this meal might have put me over the turkey dinner edge. Delicious!
More games, toddler play time, and lots of talking about our future baby boy and it was time for bed. What a weekend!
