He's a BOY!!!

We are THRILLED to know that our 1st baby will be a son!! I have ALWAYS wanted a little boy and Michael is so excited that he is going to have a hunting buddy and golf partner! The sonographer said that everything looked healthy and measured right on track. 

Our due date is still February 24, 2011! 

Now to decide on his name... I'm ready to monogram!!

Pink or Blue?

My sweet class has anxiously asked me EVERYDAY this week if I know if the baby is a boy or girl. It didn't matter how many times I told them that we would not know until Thursday... they were still so curious! (Aren't we all?!?!)

I decided to have them "vote" for a boy or girl today by decorating a cookie on a stick. They got to choose to decorate with pink or blue icing and sprinkles... in a 9 year olds eye LIFE WAS GOOD! They even got to lick the knife when they were done! Oh my! 

We also made it into a little math lesson and made a bar graph and talked about percentages. Although the pole on the blog is tied... my class was weighted... BOY! Only 5 of the 18 kids thought pink! 

When I get back to school, the "winners" will get to eat their cookie during snack time. Everyone else will have to wait until after school when they get home. We'll see if the cookies survive the substitute tomorrow!
