The Big Reveal

So, so, so, so much fun!!!


The Big Reveal from Erin Dukes on Vimeo.

Deana B. made the cakes for the boys to cut!!  They were so cute!! She did an awesome job, and, man, it meant so much to me that they were made by her!  One of my favorite moments on the video is when sweet Afton says, "We're having a girl!!" I love that she feels like we are all family!  Even though Afton will be 6.5 years older than our little one, I hope they will have a special girl bond!  I love that James finally got his wish.  He has always wanted a sister.  When I tucked him in, I asked him about how he felt about everything.  He was so happy!  He said, "I've never had a sister!  I've always wondered what it would be like!" It was a special night full of sweet memories!

After our sweet friends left and the boys were tucked in bed and Erik went to sew up a man's hand, I sat down at the kitchen table by myself with a glass of milk and a piece of pink cake. I knew without a doubt that it would be a blue cake I would be eating that night!  I was so sure. God really surprised us, all the way around, with this little one! Overwhelmed is an understatement.

Erin,
I am so excited for you and your family.
I have been following your blog since you only had 2 beautiful sons. It has been such a blessing to see how God has worked in your family.
We are a homeschooling family and I was so excited to read about your hs adventure.
Can't wait to see how the boys love on this baby girl. Thank you for sharing. I feel like we would be friends in real life:)
Blessings,
Jen

Hi! I live in a sweet country home overflowing with love, laughter, and little ones. I have been blessed to journey these days beside a man that I love, respect, and admire. He is my soul-mate and best friend. Together we are seeking to raise our seven children to be lovers of God, to be wise and discerning, and to be all that our sweet God created them to be. I am in the goldfish and cheerio stage of life, but I am keenly aware that these days are slipping right through my hands. This blog is my attempt to keep our memories safe for years to come.
