Hey y’all! Matthew and I wanted to share several fun pictures from our gender reveal party yesterday. Our dear friends Chad and Loren were the gracious hosts and they did a wonderful job with everything! We’re trying to convince Loren to be a party planner full time … she’s just that good, people! We actually had our gender ultrasound Wednesday afternoon … so Saturday seemed like forever away! We asked the tech to enclose a couple pictures showing either girl or boy parts in an envelope. We had supper with Chad, Loren, and Landry that night and gave them the envelope. The next day, they had Bob the baker at Publix take a quick peek at the ultrasound pictures so he knew whether the inside of the cake would be pink for a girl or blue for a boy!

Saturday morning finally rolled around and we were absolutely ready! Chad and Loren came over around 10 am and started decorating … Matthew and I were completely blown away! Every detail was perfect. Several of our family members that we invited arrived at 11:30 am and we cut the cake shortly after! The inside had a thin, baby blue icing line in the middle. We’re having a precious boy! Matthew and I are thrilled that we were able to share that awesome moment with our family!

We cannot express enough how excited we are! Matthew and I feel so blessed and cannot wait to meet our little man in January!

Loren hand made the pink and blue paper flower balls and the super cute ‘Baby Hammett’ banner! She also special ordered the balloons. She had two of our ultrasound pictures (that were not gender specific) in cute frames … of course, pink for a girl and blue for a boy! What did I say about the details?! PERFECT!The tally. And yup … Lo made the chalkboard frame!

Team Pink for Julianne GraceTeam Blue for Grant Kermit! Team Pink was definitely outnumbered …

Team Blue wins

A special thanks to Chad, Loren, and Landry … the party was a huge success! Thank you for all the time and creativity you guys put into our special day. We just love you guys!

Today marks our 4 year wedding anniversary! We began talking about what it would be like to be married to each other when we were 16 years old. We had the pleasure of being high school sweethearts and it was a lot of fun getting to know Vernice at an early age. We’ve always had this amazing type of chemistry together and I can’t quite put into words how much she means to me. I often refer back to June 9, 2007 as the best day of my life and when I close my eyes, it’s easy for me to see the woman of my dreams walking down the isle that day. Vernice was absolutely gorgeous and at that moment, I couldn’t figure out what I did to deserve someone like her. She took my breath away and she still has that ability every time she walks into the room. Sweetheart, I love you so much and I am truly thankful for our relationship! I want to celebrate at least 70 more of these anniversaries together! Cheers. [M]
