The Week of Parties!!

We had quite the party week! It all started with my dear friend Sonali's wedding. She had a traditional Indian wedding, which meant the festivities began on Thursday and didn't end until Saturday at Midnight! She made such a beautiful bride and we had a great time at all of her events. We also had sweet Mary and James' pirate and princess birthday party! Jackson was so excited to dress up as a pirate. He kept saying "Arrgh Matey" and "Ahoy!". We then ended the weekend with our gender cake party. This was a compromise between Greg and I because I didn't want to know the sex of the this baby, and Greg really did. So, we went to the ultrasound and the ultrasound tech wrote down on a piece of paper whether it was a boy or girl. Jackson and I left, and she told Greg. Surprisingly, Greg kept a pretty good poker face and never spilled the beans! I then took the paper to Publix, and they made a cake that was iced inside pink for a girl and blue for a boy. We had all of her friends over for the cutting. Each person wore pink or blue depending on what they thought it was. I really was so much fun and Jackson loved playing with all of his friends!

My sweet pirate!

Pirates munching on their lunch before the parade to the pool!

The cutest pirate with the prettiest princess. Happy Birthday sweet Mary!! I also must say Happy Birthday to pirate James!!

And now for the gender cake party! The theme was "Blue or Pink what do you think?"

Team Blue

And more of team blue...

Team pink. Much smaller than team blue...hmmmmm. I have to give a shout out to dear Joe, who wore pink for the first time. Thanks for trying Joe!

Anxiously awaiting the cut!

It's BLUE!

We are so excited to have a little brother for Jackson! We know they are going to be the best of friends. Thank you to all of our friends and family for helping us celebrate such a special moment. To the ones out of town who couldn't make it, you were missed!! Also a very big THANK YOU to Gloria and Madeline for helping plan such a spectacular party. I would have never pulled it off with you! Love you much!

We were so happy to be a part of such a special weekend. "Jack" (Jackson) the pirate was so dashing at the fun pirate and princess birthday event for James and Mary. Thanks to Angie, Glo, Joe, and Granddaddy. Elizabeth and Greg you pulled off a great gender party in honor of our new little guy! To be with all of my family was amazing, and celebrating Glo's birthday was just icing on the heart. Seeing how happy you and Greg are in that last picture warmed my heart too! Looking forward to our Asheville adventure.
