So... I've just been avoiding sitting down at my computer for the last few months,
because I've really wanted to not keep secrets.
But now I can tell you.
Ryan and I are expecting a little girl! She's due in March and we couldn't be more excited. I will write a more detailed posted a little later, but here is how we told our families.
We drove down to Orem Friday night and surprised Ryan's family by bringing home his little sister from Rexburg. We told them that Saturday morning we were going to get up early and go to my aunt's house to have breakfast and watch conference, but we really weren't.
We got up and headed out of the house at about 8:10, we stopped and had the most sugar filled breakfast at Kneaders, which I hadn't had in WAY too long. We shared the french toast, a cinnamon roll, and a strawberry smoothie. It was so good and so much sugar.
We then went to my aunt's house (so only part of our excuse was a lie haha) and made cupcakes and watched the first session of conference. A few people knew what we were up to, so we teased them and sent this picture and said "It's a...."
It probably wasn't very nice of us, but we had fun.
We didn't think my parents were going to come to my aunts after my sister's soccer game so we headed to Ryan's, but about 1/2 there my dad called and said they'd decided to stop by- so we turned around.
We walked in and I showed my parents the cupcakes
And my mom said "You told us you weren't finding out until the 10th" which is true, we did... another lie. I told her we did and to eat a cupcake and find out and she said "well I can see pink on that one, so it must be a girl" haha she didn't really play along. But the rest of the cousins and family did so it was fun. They were surprised because they were all sure I was having a boy- I have been CRAZY sick and that's usually what happens with boys in our family. (I'm hoping boys aren't worse for me because this has been soooo bad). They had to feed me at that point because I get real sick and real hangry if my tummy is empty, I won't complain haha it got me leftover Olive Garden and I was in heaven.
We then headed to the Brereton's for the second session, they were at the store when we got there so we just set the cupcakes on the counter under my binder and didn't say anything. They got home and had lunch (yay second lunch!) and Ryan's dad saw the cupcakes, we had to wait for his sister to get there so we were telling them about how we'd lied and I TOLD them what we were having on accident!! It was so bad haha but only a few of them heard, which was good, and his mom actually heard wrong so it turned out fun anyway. His sister got home and we did the reveal to them. So it all worked out.
Sunday we went to his grandma and aunt's house and gave them the ? cupcakes from both groups to surprise them. Ryan said "I have a cupcake for you, it is special but I'm not telling you why... just take a bite as soon as I give it to you", they were confused, but did so anyway. It was fun to surprise them as well...
So... anyway, that's the story haha more details about the pregnancy thus far, our temporary puppy situation, and life here in Logan to come... but today is the first day I have felt like a human in a long time, so I'm going to attempt to be productive!
