Mobile Photo

I decorated the ultrasound pic and texted it to all my fam and friends. We live on opposite coasts so we couldn't do it in person. Everyone thought it was super cute though.

 We just found out after new years. So we told my parents one of their gifts got pushed under the catch. They had no idea.I had one box with two gifts in tissue paper - one for my mom and one for my dad. Each had  best grandma/grandpa onsies. It was wonderful. We told my friend last night too and I had her little boy come over to me and said I have a secret go tell mommy....it was so cute!

close friends and family I told face to face. And extended family and friends I told over Facebook. Nothing special lol.

Pinterest has really cute ideas for pregnancy announcements and gender reveals.

Lol I just called them and said "hey we are having a baby!" Not very creative or special.

We just called our parents. The rest of our family and a few friends received an email with a photo of my youngest wearing a "big sister" shirt.

I came up with this idea for our third. I drew pictures of our two daughters and one to represent the new baby. I gave copies to my parents and grandma to announce to them and also shared the photos on FB later.

This is our most recent announcement. I'm 6 weeks with baby #5. We have four girls so far. I really wanted to do something special. Our last name means Candle Maker, so I came up with this idea.

Called & told my mom & sisters over the pohne, fil was told in person. Everyone else was told via facebook with the status that I am "working on a little project with 10 tiny fingers & 10 tiny toes due in May."

I was boring.
My 2 best friends were there when I took the test so they knew before my bf even did. I just walked out into the kitchen and handed him it. I called my mom. Texted a pic to a few close friends.

Everyone else I posted an ultrasound to facebook
