We're having a.... post! 

It's been over 2 months since I last posted something on here?!  Can we all say S-L-A-C-K-E-R?

You know it's been a long time since you posted on your blog if you had to think for a minute how to get to it.

You know it's been a long time since you posted on your blog if you couldn't remember the last thing you talked about.

You know it's been a long time since you posted on your blog if you haven't even posted yet that you're having your first grandchild, and mama is about 4 months along!

Yes, that's right!  S&K are expecting their first child this February!  They told us in a very cool way.  She handed us a little stuffed wolf puppy with baby ribbons tied around its neck.  Since their last name is Wolff, it only took A about 1 second to pick up on why S was handing these out.  It took me about 2 seconds...

But get this!  I am one of only 4 people tonight who know what S&K are having.  How exciting is that?!  Only G, B and the ultrasound technician know, too. 

That is until tomorrow about 2:45.  We are having a gender reveal party, which is whene everyone else will find out if we're having a Jackson Oliver or an Alexis Grace.  Here's how they will find out...
S&K will cut this open and find out based on the cake color.  Fun, huh?

I could have posted pics of me making it...but I couldn't do that, cause then you'd already know!  I could have posted pics of the cake scraps, but that would have let the secret out of the bag.   So all ya get is the finished cake.  Sorry. 

Or am I?  It's kinda fun knowing a secret, ya know?

I didn't want to find out too soon myself for fear I'd let it slip in conversation, so B has been holding on to the envelope from the technician ever since Tuesday when S had the ultrasound.  But B, G and I have known since last night and now the cake is ready and the ice cream is chilling ready to freeze tomorrow.  Yep, that's right, we will also have homemade Jackson or Alexis ice cream.  Fun and yum! 

Does it get any better?

I promise I'll post again tomorrow night with pics of the cut cake...same baby time, same baby channel...
