Smoke Bomb Gender Reveal on Facebook Live

Smoke Bomb Gender Reveal

Yesterday was SO much fun you guys, and after the week we’ve had – we definitely needed some amazing news.

Last week, I got to go with Missee to an ultrasound appointment at First Glimpse Ultrasound … she was just barely in the second trimester, but I got to find out the gender of their baby due in early September is going to be … and I had to keep it a secret all weekend long. Keeping the secret was almost as hard as it was that time Missee surprised Matt with the news they were expecting their first baby!!

Now let me tell you: it about damn near killed me holding that secret in!! I’m a terrible secret keeper and an even worse liar … and things kept happening, preventing us from doing their gender reveal shoot (a blizzard, a trip to California, we lost Charlie … I mean … terrible, terrible timing!).

Since they are moving on Friday (*sob*) to their new home in Oklahoma (*sobs again*), we HAD to get this shoot done and last night … we made it happen! Even better: we LIVESTREAMED it on Facebook, so all of their friends + family could find out not only that Missee is expecting … but what the baby is!!!

Check out our Live video from last night!

Our kids were so excited for their new baby cousin (especially Noah), they jumped around in the video background!! Sorry about the shakiness of the video – Daniel (our 14 year old) was the cameraman and he got super excited, haha!

Missee’s face just LIT UP when they turned around and saw the blue smoke. And Matt? Well, he literally jumped for joy with tears in his eyes.
