Forever Family & Gender Reveal Party

On G.ood Friday, 4.22.11, we hosted a party at our home. We would have had it outstide, but we knew it was going to rain. So, we rearranged our living and dining rooms to accomodate.
Before....
 Sitting in my spacesave highchair for dinner....
 Some presents....
 Opening gifts.....
I have a ton more pictures, but I don't want to post them of all of my family. We didn't invite a ton of people. When we first thought that Finalization would take place closer to the 6 month time frame we were going to host a big party. But, now it's so close to Baby C's birthday we decided to keep it more low key. We had 14 adults and 5 children there; just enough for our small home. After everyone arrived, we had to wait a little while for the food to finish, we ate and socialized. Around 6pm (it started at 5pm), we got everyone's attention. I thanked everyone for being there and for the tremendous support during the adoption process. This led into the gender reveal. We had put candy into a ton of plastic E.aster eggs. In one egg (blue : ) ), my DH also put a piece of paper that read "IT''S A GIRL!" with a happy face! We let everyone pick an egg (excluding the three of us). After 3 rounds no one had picked THE ONE! For the last round, we started to run out of eggs so not everyone got one. My DH and I knew that it was in a blue egg so everytime someone had one, we tried to point the cameras in their direction without them knowing. My DH's mother got it! She opened it, read it and stated "I'm not telling!" But, one of the brothers could see the writing through the paper and shouted it out "IT'S A GIRL!" After some celebration, Baby C had help from my DH to open her gifts

The party went soooo well! It will be one that we will never forget!

She is SO cute!!! I love her outfit! I have a sister only a couple of years younger than me (technically stepsister) and I don't know what I'd do without her, she's my best friend in the world. It'll be so much fun watching for you watching your girls grow up so close in age:)
