Michelle's Gender Reveal Party

My sister and James came to town on wednesday night to drop off the animals and hang out for a few days. They are now off to Vegas for their 5 year anniversary (in July) vacation. Since michelle only had an initial ultrasound and won't have another until 20 week appt. I convinced her to go to a place to find out here (she's right at 17 weeks)! They went without us and found out so they could keep it a secret for the party.
She wanted to do the reveal with just a cake, but I wanted a more dramatic approach so we made her a big box to fill with helium balloons. It was a big ordeal trying to keep the balloons hidden and everything under wraps.

I honestly could tell all day just by looking at her, but I really did think since her pregnancy was so different than mine that it was a girl. We both really thought we'd have a house full of boys for some reason so it was a fun surprise still. 
 We had Davids parents, mom and Amber and Bob come over. The majority of the group was thinking girl though. Chris and Marla were on video chat and were both strongly voting for girl.
 Shell had put food coloring inside the cake so that when we cut into it you could see pink everywhere! It was delicious!
So happy for Michelle and James and for tutus and teacups!
