Him or Her Party!

This is a post about a wreath that is really so much more than a wreath. It’s a wreath that represents a whole new chapter in our lives!


By definition a metamorphosis is a “change in appearance, character, or condition”. I believe this counts! You may remember I told you that 2011 is going to be a big one for this family---both sons are getting married---big changes, BUT I alluded to another change and some of you guessed. The happy bride (our daughter) and groom


will be parents in June…hopefully about two weeks after the first wedding :). WE ARE FINALLY GOING TO BE GRANDPARENTS!!!!!

The baby bump is small, but it’s there! This past Friday I was grateful to attend the first photo session….I mean sonogram :)…the one that reveals the gender of the baby! The technician sealed the answer in an envelope and gave….it….to….me!!!! I could hardly stand the temptation! BUT we had been planning a party for a month. Some people call it a gender reveal party. That sounds a little cold to me. I called it the Him or Her party! CIMG3347

This wreath greeted the parents-to-be, family, and friends for the party.


Will we be decorating in pink or blue?


Him or Her???

Thank you SO MUCH for sharing this joy with me!!!! I hope you’ll come back. I’ll be sharing all this week….the table, the decorations, the menu and recipes….and of course if it’s a HIM or Her!!!!~~Susan

    Congratulations to all !!!!!!! :-D

  4. I am so excited for you and the wonderful new chapter in your lives! Congratulations and yes, please do let us share in your joy with photos! Annie

  5. Oh, my! There's nothing like a grandbaby to enrich your life.... I found myself smiling at strangers for a solid month cause I was on such a high. And whenever I bought two of something and the salesclerk would ask if someone had twins, they got an EARFUL all about how precious my twin grandbabies were. I'm a little embarrassed just remembering... :) CONGRATS!!!!

  6. Would they let you take the envelope to a cake bakery, and let them see the gender? then they could bake a cake with either pink or blue icing as the filling. When the cake gets cut it would be a surprise to everyone at the party. Best wishes. I can't wait to see how your party turns out. Exciting times for you!

  7. Susan I am so excited and HAPPY for you! You know I'm going to be a first time Grandma in two months so I know your joy! Ours is a boy so I can't wait to hear your news! This is such a joyful time isn't it! My daughter has gotten quite the baby bump now. Oh I'm so happy for you! hugs, Linda

  8. How exciting for you! I can tell that you can't wait! I think your grand-baby is going to be spoiled by his/her grandma!

  9. Your metamorphosis is absolutely fabulous. I so hope that you enjoy every bitty bump of it.

    Have a very Happy Valentine's Day!

  10. Susan, that wreath is sooo pretty! What a beautiful grandbaby you're going to have. The parents are both beautiful. I know your dinner was so much fun! (I can't believe you were able to keep that envelope sealed - didn't you think about steaming it - even for a minute?) laurie
