"The icing in the cake"

       Before we left for a beach trip with my family I had an appointment to find out the gender of our fourth child.  I scheduled the appointment weeks ago, but also knew that it was summer at the ranch and the chances of Tony and I both being able to get away was not likely. So, I devised a plan for our entire family to find out in a fun way. The ultrasound called our baker after the appointment, told her what the gender was, kept it a secret from me, and then our sweet baker baked a cake with either blue or pink icing in the middle. I just assumed it would be the kids and us after dinner and a few staff who would be pretending to be interested just because they love us well. Instead, we ate in the dining room and Bob announced the unveiling to all of our guests as well. I couldn't believe how many people watched us cut that cake(a little terrifying) and this is what happened...







That's right...IT WAS PINK! We are so blessed to be having another girl! That makes it 2 boys and 2 girls and we are ecstatic!!
