Forbidden doughnut, ummmmmmmmmmm

** Spoiler alert** This post involves scrumdiddlyumptious doughnuts that helped us announce a surprise that should not be a surprise to anyone that reads this blog because it's been a few weeks since the bomb was dropped. But, just in case you didn't get the memo, consider yourself warned for the proverbial un-bagged cat.
On our way home from Eugene, we stopped in Portland at the world famous Voodoo Doughnuts and picked up two dozen for our families. Voodoo Doughnuts are famous for their doughnuts that have eclectic (to say the least) toppings and flavors. They all have special names, but I don't know what they are, so all the pastry purists out there will have to excuse my crude descriptions.

They have the pentagram doughnut because it's made out of devil's food cake mix.

The Fruit Loops doughnut that isn't as good as I thought it would be, probably because by the time I tried it, the Fruit Loops were a little soggy.

The marshmallow doughnuts that have marshmallow cream, topped by grape, strawberry or pineapple drink mix.

They even have a maple bar with bacon on top that I've heard is bangarang. Probably their most famous doughnut though is a voodoo doll doughnut that has raspberry jelly in the middle for blood. We had the doughnut artistes put extra jelly in a voodoo doll so that it would look pregnant, and then they wrote "It's a girl"...Because Marci is...And it's a girl

Yippee! Congrats! That's so exciting. By the way, love the monster sounds from Rocky. I swear she and Sasha could be twins because that's Sasha's favorite sound. It's the sound that all bears, tigers, dinosaurs and any other roaring, growling or monstery-sounding animals make.

Congrats! I am so excited for you guys. I love the creative way of telling. I love when expected parents tell in a fun creative way instead of the boring we are having a baby. Very very cute. I really want a doughnut right now!
