Baby Craft Gender Reveal

My last post recapping our Fourth of July left out one tiny detail from that weekend... my sister Melanie and brother-in-law Clark announced over Fourth of July weekend that they are expecting in January 2017.  I am so excited to be an aunt and for Betsy to have a cousin so close in age!

For the past few weeks, Melanie and Mom have been hard at work getting ready for baby Craft's gender reveal party, which was Sunday afternoon.  The timing of the party worked out perfectly for us as we had a wedding to attend near Houston on Saturday and were only a short drive away from where Mel and Clark live in The Woodlands.

Our little group of Ol 'Ags wives got lots of stares and comments at the reception thanks to multiple babies on the way!  We figured out that Betsy and her friends will all be at A&M together as the class of 2039 :)    Before heading to the party at Mel and Clark's, Megan and Jon hosted us, the McDonalds, the Sheffields, and the Keels for a delicious brunch at their pretty house in Katy, which was the perfect start to our Sunday.  

Once we made our way to The Woodlands, we pitched in with some last minute party prep and started the countdown to the big reveal!  Melanie and Mom did a great job with all the food, and all of the decorations and little touches came together so perfectly.

The photo booth and props were a fun touch, too!

After what felt like waiting forever, it was finally time for Mel and Clark to pop their poppers and for everyone to find out whether Mel and Clark would be welcoming a baby boy or baby girl in January.... and as almost EVERYONE had predicted, baby Craft is a BOY!

Since finding out that they were expecting, no one has been able to picture this baby being anything other than a sweet baby boy, and this was the perfect way to confirm that we were all right. Austin and I are so excited to meet our nephew in January!!
