This is what I did:
I set up my camera to take some portraits of the dog. Who wasn't cooperating, so I asked my Dh to come and help. Then I wanted to take some photos of the 2 of us together, with the timer. I told him just before the timer went off. It would have worked great if he reacted when he was supposed to. He reacted after the shutter went.
oh well. We still got a nice shot.
We bought 3 small frames that said Grandkids across the top. Dh wrote on pieces of paper: Mom Name + Dad Name = Baby's Name, Birthdate.
(obviously the real names and birthdates were used). there was one for my sister and family, my brother and family, and then us. We had: ?? and our Estimated due date instead of baby's name.
I think it would have worked better if my mom didn't already know. How she knew, i have no idea. I had just confirmed that day! oh well, mothers seem to know everything.
Friends: we just told 'em. although, I did say that we should have a little tax break at the end of the year. (everyone was really excited)
In-Laws: no special way. Dh just told his mom 'cause I wasn't eating the sashimi, which is very unusual for me. His dad is out to sea and so mil probably told him when she talked to him.
I love to hear/read fun stories about sharing the big news.
