what made yesterday just perfect

Yesterday was a wonderful, wonderful day. 

We found out the gender of little cryings! 

But more on that later. 
Chas and I want to make an extra special little post for the official announcement coming soon! 

But, in the meantime, here's a little something that added to the wonderful-ness of yesterday. 
 (If I was a Mormon Fundamentalist, I would want you as my sister wife.)
Girls' Christmas Party!

There was hand-made matching red turtlenecks, yummy treats, fancy drinks, cute decorations, talking, laughing, talking, and more laughing. 

And then there was the white elephant gift exchange.
I lovingly offered my first marriage's wedding announcement/invite...framed beautifully. 
I went home with Heather's old nursing bra. 

I just love these girls. 

P.S. 
Can we please have a moment of silence for Holly's Christmas tree and amazingly-wrapped presents?
At the very least, a slow clap is in order. 
All those little details! Stunning.

And at first when I read you found out the gender and I saw the picture of you girls in the sweaters, I thought PINK was because it was a girl! Grr I was wrong. I can't wait for the official announcement!

ah! The suspense! You're gonna kill us! But can't wait to see the special announcement, and how fun for you two to have a little special secret for a bit. :)
We are living with a couple right now. They are really good friends of ours and so we have started saying sister-wife and calling the husband/wife from the other couple Husband #2/wife#2. It only weirds out the missionaries a little bit when we have them over for dinner, haha.
