Our Three Sons

On Saturday, we hosted a housewarming (post later on how we actually moved this summer and I haven’t written about it yet) and gender reveal party (just realized that I hadn’t written about being pregnant either. Oops.)

We had 66 people show up to our new, downsized house to break it in and help us celebrate the newest member of our family.

We went to the doctor on Wednesday of last week, and asked for the gender picture to be put in an envelope. I later delivered the envelope to my good friend, Laura. I chose Laura because I knew she would keep a secret well, and that she would be honored to be the first to know our news and help us prepare the big reveal.

Laura bought 38 cans of (blue) silly string and wrapped them in craft paper and ribbon.

We decked the place out with pink and blue and let our guests place their bets on the gender.

And then the time came for us to stand surrounded by our family and closest friends and let them spray 38 cans of silly string at us. Who thinks of these things!?

And it turns out, just like that, our family is getting just a little crazier. Very soon, we’ll be a family of five – make that one daddy, one momma and three crazy boys. We’re thrilled, and not one ounce surprised. But, we’ll still take your prayers. Please.

And if you’re looking for an invitation for a housewarming and gender reveal party (since they’re nearly impossible to find), you can check out our Etsy shop.

A huge thank you to our very good friend Scott Wade for most of the photos.

The Bachelorette: Episode 8-11 Recap

We’re going out with a bang, y’all. Turns out that watching two hours of trash every week, plus recording a recap in the summer was a little more work than we bargained for. But, you’ve waited with the patience of Job. And we’re back with one last recap of the end of the season. Here’s hoping it was worth the waiting.

We’ll be back in January. In the meantime, we’re crossing our fingers for a Farmer Chris Bachelor season. Anyone else?

 

The Bachelorette: Episode 6-7 Recap

And we’re back. You guys. It’s summer. And I am proud to announce that our kids and family time has taken precedence over our Bachelorette recaps. We have neglected our weekly updates, and maybe we’re moving a biweekly model. It’s hard to say what the coming weeks hold. Regardless, we are back this week with our surprisingly popular episode recap. In this clip, there is no shortage of our sage advice for those of you considering becoming a contestant on the show. You’ll also get our predictions for the remaining men, along with some investigative speculations on the editing on the show. Y’all enjoy. And we’d love to hear your predictions for the remaining four men.
