Sharing the news on Thanksgiving

I just found out that after trying for 11 months, that I'm pregnant! We're planning to share the news for Dh's family at Thanksgiving. I'm going to bring a cake with the news and hand it to my MIL. I'm just not sure what it should say.

Something along the lines of "we have lots to be thankful for...#2 due 7/21/13
Or something rhyming and cute! Any ideas?

 when the turkey is finished but before it is set on the table tuck a note between the tied legs saying a baby's coming in 9 months. that way if your father cuts the turkey he will see the note

That's a cute idea

That's a cute idea! Unfortunately its a large gathering of about 40 family members in a buffet hall in buffet style so I can't do that. I'm hoping to do the cake for just my MiL, last time she startig crying and screaming at once and was so excited, it would be fun to do that again in this setting and get the whole family told at once.
