christmas gender reveal

My little brother and his family were visiting for Christmas, and they are expecting their third child. As we opened up our gifts Christmas morning, he pulled one special gift from the pile and called the family to attention.

My sister-in-law had had an ultrasound earlier that week, and they didn't know what they were having. They asked the ultrasound technician to write on a piece of paper if it was a boy or a girl, and then they went to a clothing store and picked out a boy outfit and a girl outfit. They gave the note from the ultrasound visit to the clerk at the store and said they wanted to buy either the blue boy outfit or the pink girl outfit depending on what the note said. The clerk wrapped it in a box so they couldn't see which outfit they had purchased.

They wrapped the box and opened it with us on Christmas morning, so we could all find out at the same time that they are having.. a little girl!

It was so fun to see the reactions of my brother and his wife, my parents, my kids, and my niece and nephew as they all found out. By far the most exciting gift we opened Christmas morning and one of the most creative gender reveals I've seen.

that is incredibly adorable! what a fun christmas surprise!

I think you mean 'sex' and not 'gender'. Perhaps you should review the definitions for these terms, to avoid offending anyone.

what a GREAT idea!!! Love it! I'm going to tell my sister - she's due in 2 months (i'm so excited). So..won't be a Christmas gift opening, but maybe it can be a family event anyhow :)

You are right, absolutely the best one I've heard! We chose to wait and be surprised for both of our babies, and that was great fun too.

Aww, so cute, haha. A while back saw a video how cutting a cake revealed gender. All these are new to me, but sound like so much fun!
