  • since christmas is coming up. make something telling that they will be grandparents again and wrap it up. let it come from the first kid.

  • If your first one is old enough to draw then have them draw a picture of him or her playing with their baby sister/brother and have them give it to their grandparents.

  • I read somewhere about a couple that told their family at a family gathering. They had everyone get together to take a family picture and the husband was taking the picture. Instead of saying - everyone say cheese - he said "everyone say Jane's pregnant!" and then he took the picture and was able to get everyone's expression.

  • The above post is such a cool idea love it!

    I am due on Christmas, so at a family dinner at my in-laws, my husband casually announced that we already "ordered" everyone's gift and should be here just in time for Christmas. His Dad figured it out immediately, it took everyone else a second to put it together....

  • We signed a card (it was Father's Day) that had all our names then Baby #2 at the end. Then we sent them to our fathers and waited for the reaction. It was a lot of fun :)
