On Pink?

Last month I had an ultrasound to check and make sure all was well...

It is, and it's a GIRL!

I really didn't care if we had a girl or boy,
but secretly leaning towards the female side (just to even out the team.) 
We were going to have a Gender Reveal at dinner to tell our kids, my mom, and hubby's parents
that night...
I had great plans of making cute Pinterest-found cupcakes with cute fondant toppers and
pink icing in the middle,
BUT
Dance happened.  E is getting ready for Swan Lake AND Nutcracker so it just didn't happen.
Instead I ordered an all white cake with pink filling from a local bakery.
BUT
On the way home the entire top layer slid off!
Cake after I attempted to fix it- Pink was showing through sides though!

(They hadn't put dowels in the cake and it was three layers with LOTS of filling.)
With an hour to spare I managed to come up with this:

Tiny Take-Out Boxes

Filled with PINK Sixlet Candy

We asked everyone to open them at the same time and it served the purpose!
The kids were so excited (finally!) 

I'm officially more than 1/2 way there now...
21 weeks!

19 to go til we meet her!
