A week or so ago DD2 and Adam finally let their respective siblings, and then their friends know of their exciting news. And then Saturday of last week we had the 'Gender Reveal'. What's that you ask? I did know about these events after having heard them mentioned on other people's Facebook pages 😆. Basically friends and family gather and a special cake that has been baked is cut. Inside the cake is either blue or pink...hence the 'revealing of the gender'. DH was heard to mutter some comments about this, but to me anything that gets loved ones altogether for a bit of a soiree, I'm all for it!!
And so it was that we all gathered at the couple's house. My girl had been craving chocolate so that cake stand in the next photo was put together just for her...on the lower level were some chocolate croissants ( her favourite treat as a teenager) and chocolate brownies, strawberries and grapes in the middle layer and chocolates on the top! 😉
Some people brought gifts...blue and pink!
The cake in the photo was made by DD2's friend Nicky. The doctor had given DD2 the gender info on a piece of paper sealed in an envelope. This had been passed on to Nicky who then made the cake.
It seemed to take forever for the cake to be cut...but at last the moment came. And there were lots of squeals of delight...
I think that by her reaction that DD2 had been hoping for a girl...
But best of all...after 5 years of 'not talking' my two daughters are now reconciled again...and I couldn't be happier.
