Bonnets or Buckets?

So we found out a bit of news...................
We decided over the weekend to go at 17 weeks to find out what are growing belly bump was holding inside.  Our doctor's office gives the option to find out starting at 16 weeks with a gender scan, and will only tell ya if they are 100% sure.  With the stresses of life seeming to pile on us lately we thought there was no better way to get a boost of happiness than to celebrate this baby.
Of course we wanted to make it a small celebration of fun so we invited our immediate family and a few of our closest friends.
For something this sweet I thought an ice cream party was the way to go.  It was perfect and simple with toppings for strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate ice cream; as well as a few sweet and salty treats Henry helped me create like pink/blue white chocolate dipped pretzels and chips.
Earlier that day we had taken Henry with us to the doctor and the three of us found out together what our joyous little blessing would be.  Then came the fun of revealing it to everyone else; and after counting the votes people were definitely leaning heavily towards a boy.
Bonnets or Buckets which one will it be, open the box to see!
 A sweet light pink bonnet wearing girl!  Our hearts are so full of excitement!  It couldn't have been a more fun surprise and we felt so thankful to have such sweet people to share the news with. 
We are so happy to have this darling little girl growing inside of me.  We were going to be excited either way the dice rolled but I'm tickled pink for these results!  

Glory to God in the highest!  He is the maker of all things good!
