What will "it" BEE

Well the day FINALLY arrived. The day we found out if Baby Uh Oh was a BOY or a GIRL!

It was an amazing day from start to finish. Nona kept Tabor so we woke up early and drove to Amarillo. It was like a mini road trip/date. Once there we met Kenley at Stork Vision and she made sure everything was special and perfect. 

For anyone wanting to see their baby and/or find out the gender in the most fun and amazing way possible we HIGHLY recommend Stork Vision. It's nothing like being at the doctor's office and they will take the time to actually show you your new baby! It really is an experience we will forever treasure and remember!

Kenley came in with us and made us cover our eyes while the technician checked what Baby T was going to be. She wrote it down for Kenley and after she snapped this pic of us she ran out of the room and made a phone call.

Earlier in the week we had decided we wanted to have our parents and closest friends in Lubbock come by and open the mystery envelope with us. Well we are really blessed because our parents all decided to make it even more special. They kept Tabor, bought food, cooked dinner and even brought over a huge box for Monica's great idea. We were simply planning to come home, see whoever stopped by and open an envelope, but it turned out so much better. Like I said we are so blessed by our friends and family.

Monica had taken a box into a balloon store earlier that morning and asked them to wait on Kenley's call to then fill it up with either pink or blue balloons. 

Yes I made a cake. How could I NOT have made a cake? My husband INSISTED. Literally...I was having a rough week and it was supposed to be easy. Mix batter, pour in giant cupcake pan, ice with buttercream. BUT instead it came out raw because I was tired and I actually said I was going to serve it like that. Ty threw it away and made me start over. He helped me and I'm so glad that he did. Look how cute it turned out!

Seriously this was put together so quickly that everything was really simple. We bought honeycomb cereal and sixletts for the kiddos. There weren't many kids so that made it even easier. :-)

Peace o' cake actually had a groupon out that day and we took advantage and got cupcakes. This was last minute when we thought there would be no cake to serve but hey again it was cute and who doesn't love dessert!!

My mom put together a cute centerpiece with the leftover sixletts and a bee she found. That bee has been around for years. Ha! I can't believe we finally used it for something!

I put together a simple cute sign which last minute got moved inside because the weather decided not to cooperate.

The entire dessert setup. Hey it's been awhile since I had an excuse to bake (ahem or order stuff - I had a bad baking week ok! It happens!)

Finally the big moment came. Well more like thunder and water dropletts that made us hurry and start the revealing process! We didn't want to release the balloons in pouring rain! Here's the box that held the big surprise!

AND... they came out BLUE!

We're having another little Touchstone BOY!

Dad is obviously thrilled! We actually both are. We can't wait to meet our little Titus Slade Touchstone!

Here's a video of us finding out. Thanks Mon for the amazing idea! This was much more special than opening up an envelope! Thanks to our parents & friends for taking care of all the details too and thanks to Kenley for even making this day possible to begin with! This would not have been as special without you.

Meet Baby Titus at his 19 week sonogram...
