How Did/Are you telling everyone?

Just wondering if anyone has any cute ideas on ways to tell family and friends you are having a baby? What have you done or are you going to do?

That's adorable Mandy!

We told my parents and some family by putting DD in a Big Sister shirt. My in-laws we wrote it in a card and I'll probably do an announcement picture if I get a good profile shot from the NT scan whenever I decide to announce it on FB.

Mandy--very cute announcement!
Jamie--how did the announcement go? What did you decide to do?

We told the kids last night. It has been killing DH to stay quiet! lol I had a better idea than what I ended up doing, but it was going to take all day long and we have my sil living with us for the summer (and I didn't want to tell her), so we only did part of it. I went and purchased some balloons--just latex ones--a pink one that said "Yes, I'm a girl" and a blue one that said, "It's a boy!". I wrapped them up in 2 separate gift bags (so 2 kids could open one at a time) and DH came up with a silly story to tell them. They were so excited! Now to keep them quiet until I get the announcement mailed to our family members. I took a picture of all the kiddos feet this morning and I'm going to add "Our family is growing by 2 feet".
