Our Gender Reveal Party

We had our Gender Reveal Party Last night Saturday January 15th! We had so much fun! We are so glad that we decided to wait and find out the sex of our baby with our family and friends!!! The party couldn't have turned out any better. Most of our family and friends were able to make it! Here are some pictures and a video from the night!

                               It was so hard to tell when I first cut into the cake! I was freaking out!!!!!
                                                       It's A BOY!!!!!!!
      This is team BLUE! The majority of the people wore blue! I don't think that everyone made the picture!
                                                                   This is team pink!
                      This was the Best outfit of the night! He looked so cute! We loved his shirt!!!

You can tell from the video that everyone was so excited when we found out that we are having a BABY BOY!! Phillip and I are so thrilled! We can't wait to meet the little guy! We are so excited about having a son. We are already talking about t-ball games!

16 weeks

I was 16 weeks on Thursday January 13th!  We scheduled an appointment to go to Baby Views. We were so excited to find out the sex of our baby and really anxious to just get to see our little one! It was so reassuring! Our baby looked great! The baby continues to have a good strong heart beat of 154. She showed us the heart, brain, spinal cord, fingers, toes, face and many other things. She said that everything looked perfect! It was absolutely amazing to see our baby just moving around! It's so weird at this point because I can't feel the baby moving yet! After many discussions Phillip and I decided that we were not going to find out the sex of our baby at our Ultrasound appointment! Instead the Ultrasound Tech wrote the sex of our baby on a piece of paper and put it in an envelope. I took the envelope to Patti Cakes Bakery and they made my cake! The inside of the cake will either be pink or blue depending on the sex! We decided that we wanted to share this special moment with our family and friends! We are so glad that we waited! We had such a good turn out and such a fun party! We decided to have our party on Saturday night January 15th so it would be easier for some of our family to get here! I can't wait to find out!

Doctor's Appointment

Thursday December 30th we went to our second doctor's appointment! Phillip took the day off work and was able to go with me! This was a short and sweet visit! We got to hear the baby's heart beat! It was beating at 155 beats per minute! It was so amazing to hear such a sweet sound! Phillip recorded the heart beat so I can listen to it whenever I want! I think I've already played it five times! We are so blessed that our baby is doing good! We go back to the doctor in four weeks! Please continue to keep our family in your prayers!


We had a wonderful Christmas! We were so fortunate to get to spend so much time with both of our families. Our Christmas started on Wednesday morning December 22nd when we headed to Eldorado. We really enjoyed getting to spend so much time with the Davises! Here are some pictures from our Christmas in Eldorado!

Christmas Eve P.K cooked a wonderful dinner as always! Then we opened presents from each other! Christan is at such a fun age to watch him open presents. We all really enjoyed watching him. Then we shot fireworks! This was a new and fun tradition to me!

Christmas morning we went over to Leslie and Melissa's house to watch Christan open all his presents from Santa! We had all planned on getting there around 7:30 but Melissa called at 6:30 and said "He's Up!" He was so excited about all his presents! His big present that Santa brought this year was a real fourwheeler! He loved it! We all went outside and watched him ride it! Then we headed to Conway for Lunch at Nanaw's House with all of the McConnell's!

We enjoyed another wonderful meal! It's always fun to get to visit with everyone on the McConnell side of the family! We ate lunch and then opened presents. Around 3:00pm we headed across the street to my mom and dad's house to do Christmas with them. I think my brother was a little sad that he did get to open his stocking bright and early like usual! Instead he waited on me! After Christmas with Mom, Dad, and Landon we headed to Perryville for dinner!

We enjoyed another fabulous meal with the Ezell family! Doesn't my grandmother look great! I hope that I still look that good at 92 yrs old! She is such an amazing women! I look forward to several more Christmas's with her! After we left Perryville our day still wasn't close to over! When we got back to Conway all the McConnell's were waiting to get to see Reese and Riley! So we went back over to Nanaw's house to let them open there presents with the McConnell's! Then back to Mom and Dad's house to open more presents! We did Christmas with Heather, Steve, Reese and Riley! It is so much fun to watch little one's open presents! After opening several packages, putting in batteries, and having a few tea parties we were finally in bed around 11:30! Sunday was a relaxing afternoon with Mom, Dad, Landon, Heather, Steve, Reese and Riley! We couldn't have asked for a more wonderful Christmas! We are so lucky to be able to fit all of our family into one day!
