Pink or Blue?

And now, we interrupt this series about our trip to England with an important news flash!

In case you haven't heard, our daugter Suzanne (and Theo, of course!) is expecting our 2nd grandbaby.  We knew that on Monday Suzanne was going to have their gender ultrasound.  Theo knew right away the gender, but Suzanne wanted to wait until they were with family on Thursday to find out.  You can read all about it on Suzanne's blog.

Meanwhile, we weren't sure when we would find out. Suzanne has been soooooo good at keeping us involved with Tera's and Little Miss' lives, sending us a picture and a little story almost every day, so we knew she'd do something to let us know. Thursday morning we found an email saying that we should be on Skype at 7:30 p.m. to find out the gender of the baby.  We sent a reply email that we wouldn't be able to because we were having guests over for supper and we'd be eating at that moment.  In the end, that wouldn't have worked anyway because our power was off yesterday from about 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.  So we had no internet anyway.

Our next-door neighbors are good friends with the family we were having over for dinner so I didn't think it was odd at all when she came over and asked if I'd already made dessert or could they come over and share a dessert they had.  Well, since the power was off all day and my gas stove has an electric starter (go figure!) I hadn't been able to make any dessert, so I was delighted to have them join the party and bring along dessert!  The same neighbor also rescued me by letting me plug by crock pot in at her house as they have a generator.  Thanks, Beka! 

Since we were dining by candlelight and they had lights and a fan, we decided to do dessert at their house.  When we got there Beka said the cake they had made was for a special occasion.  

She said, "As you know, John and Nancy are expecting another grandchild and Suzanne asked us to help with the gender reveal."  She then had us guess what we thought it would be and we both said, "Boy".  John then cut the cake and it was .... blue inside!

As you can see, even though the pictures are kind of blurry, we were pretty happy.  Of course, we would have been equally happy if the cake had been pink.

Yes, I know it looks green in these pictures, but it really was blue.  Blue for a baby boy, coming in October!
