The table was set in a cute bears with pink and blue ribbons.
The delicious cake.
other yummies they made
Take home bags to remember the day with.
Now, lets get to finding out what baby is. I came up with a puzzle game that each couple had to do. Each couple was given a bag with a piece of paper, glue stick, and a bag full of letters that spelled out a message to reveal. The couple that figured out first, won a prize.
Katie Lee kept the secret all day. She did a great job. She is super excited. She got to read what we are having off the ultrasound machine.
Each group began trying to decipher the puzzle.
Eager grandparents could not wait to see what we were having.
Everyone working hard to find out.
Kathryn and Zeb worked hard. They have a competitive streak in them.
Scott and Stephanie have a competitive streak too. They figured it out first!!
I think Langdon was very happy to get a new little boy cousin. Can you imagine what fun these two little boys will have?

I have decided to start something new. I found Summer Fun A to Z on several other blogs and thought that it was a cute idea. Since summer for me is about over, I decided that Katie Lee and I would have Friday Fun Nights. Our weeks will begin getting busy and routine again in about a week, so we will do something special every Friday. I made a list of things to do from A to Z,but we will not go in alphabetical order. Some weeks will have more than one letter covered and other weeks will only do one. This will depend on the activity.
This is our first Friday Fun.
D--Date with Daddy
We had the chance to have a lunch date with Daddy. He was off today to go to the doctor with me. We had lunch at Bridge Street Red Robin.
This morning I had an ultrasound that also revealed the gender. (This will be told in a later post.) Anyway, we let Katie Lee go with us too. She was so excited. On the way she told me that she thought it would be a boy or maybe a girl. I think she is right it is one of those. :) She was amazed at the pictures.

1 10 oz. tub of soft cream cheese or 1 8 oz. block softened
1/2 C brown sugar
1/4 C white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2/3 pkg of a 8 oz. bag of SKOR English Toffee Bits
6-9 Granny Smith Apples cut into wedges for dipping
Mix together with a spoon until smooth – cream cheese, sugars and vanilla. Fold in toffee bits just before serving so they don’t get soggy. (soggy is yummy too!) I cut the apples just before serving to prevent them turning brown.
I forgot to take a picture of mine before we dug into it, so here is one from Taste of Homes.

Please leave me a comment with your prediction. I will reveal sometimes on Friday or Saturday.
Do you think it will be a GIRL?
Do you think it will be a BOY?

While we tried on some clothes, Katie Lee entertained herself in the 3-way mirror.
She sang and danced and counted how many of Katie Lee's she could see.
They were also having a talent show. By the time we finish shopping, the show was over except for one special talent.
On a bargain note, I lucked up on several things to wear. I don't like spending a lot of money on maternity clothes. I am just going to wear them for a few months and then I will yard sale them. Luckily I ran across several things on sale. I got a pair of shorts, two pair of pants, a dress, and a tank for less than $55 total. I felt very successful!!
We finished our fun day with supper at Texas Roadhouse. We rolled in exhausted around 9:30. It was a great day!!

Especially when she is surprised with a friend. Sunday night, these two were so excited when they say each other at Cracker Barrel. You would have thought that they had not seen each other in a long time.
Katie Lee gets all excited when Langdon comes over too. Monday, he got to spend some time with us while his mommy had a dentist appointment. These two had so much fun playing. He loved watching every move she made.
After the movie and some shopping, we headed to Rosie's for supper. They have a pretty garden area so I had to snap a few pictures.

Sadly, the only picture I got of the birthday girls they were not smiling. I hope that they had a great birthday!
Saturday morning, we headed to Huntsville to Kendall's 3rd birthday.
What a great way to spend time with our friends.

Earlier this week, I worked in my classroom getting it set up early so I will not have to worry about it closer to time. Katie Lee and Mother went too. Mother was great help. Katie Lee had a ball. This was right her ally. She played school and sang all day long. She constantly gave out stickers and put kids in the time-out chair that she made. She also loved writing on the white board. She wrote the entire alphabet across my back board. I think getting to write on the big board made it more fun.

We spent a couple days locating all of the plants that we needed. Thanks to Carol Barron for helping me know what plants we needed. Donnie then spent a couple days getting all the wild grass that had grown up in the flowerbed, then he had to move in several loads of dirt, level the bed, and add all the nutritious soil.
Finally it was time to begin planting. He dug all of those big holes with post hole diggers. I think my arms would have just fallen off especially with those 3 large trees. He did get help moving those because they were so heavy.
Finally he added mulch and the project was finished. He planted about 65 things. I think it turned out great. Maybe when we get to do the rest of the yard, I will be able to help out more.
