Just wanted to share...

As I already mentioned, I am TERRIBLE at keeping a secret! I just had to show you girls how we told our families. Since it was Mother's Day, it was perfect timing to give my mom and MIL a gift and not have them get suspicious. This is the picture we gave them...

And the video of my MIL and SIL finding out Smile (Make bowser box full size to see the video)

Congrats on your upcoming family member.

Super cute!

I was thinking of doing something similar as we had family photos taken 2 days after I found out.

Did you try expanding the browser box? I couldn't get it to come up either till I opened it all the way. It was the sweetest video of my MIL opening the picture frame. Total shock from her and my SIL (who is impossible to surprise).

No - the entire photobucket site at work is blocked. I'm trying to pull it up on my phone but I am in a dead zone and I don't get much signal here in this metal building.

So cute! Love the reaction!

We did something similar in December where we gave my MIL one of those 4 picture frames that had 4 pictures--dd and ds1 current school pic, a cute one of my 2 yo and one of our u/s. After my m/c she took out the u/s one (just had a lot of people who came over comment on it) but I told her I would send her a new one to replace it when we get pg again--I hope to send a new U/S pic to replace it for Father's day since we are waiting to announce until about then.

So there's an idea for anyone who wants it Smile You can do a single frame, double, triple etc. They loved it!

We just made a picture slideshow of the boys at Easter and snuck in the pic of the positive HPT at the end. Wink

That is so adorable! We're telling DH's family in June when we see them at his cousin's wedding. We're trying to figure out how to tell them. I was thinking of just a big brother shirt for Cameron. I love love love your announcement though!

Believe me, I didn't come up with this on my own. I found it online. I just googled "cute ways to announce pregnancy". Steal away girls. Best thing was, it was super cheap and there was NO way anyone saw it coming! Smile
