One for the Pink Team

After three sons and a grandson, we finally got the news on Christmas day that a granddaughter would be arriving in May.

Katie had had a sonogram the week before Christmas, but she and Brent decided to postpone finding out the sex of the new baby until Christmas day. They had the technician seal the sonogram results in an envelope, which they wrapped up for Christmas and hid under the Christmas tree.

Brent has always been a snoop, so I was surprised that he didn't take a peak early. However, when they unwrapped the special box on Christmas morning, it appeared to be well-sealed.

After Christmas I made a digital scrapbook of our Christmas celebration--everything from decorating ahead of time to playing games and working jigsaw puzzles in the days after Christmas. All of the pages had a Christmas background, except the two pages devoted to the best present of all.
