Happy Thanksgiving!

November 26th, 2008 at 09:58 am

Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday full of laughter, love and lots of good food!

Well, DH has finally convinced me that we should make our big announcement tomorrow at dinner. Both of his parents have passed away, so he just wants to share this happy news with someone. I am 10 weeks 5 days, so I feel safe enought for now. Everyone else will have to wait.

We're still open to suggestions as to how exactly to make the announcement. Any moms out there, how did you let your family know you were pregnant? What we were thinking of doing was gathering everyone for a big group picture, then instead of "1-2-3 Cheese!" say "1-2-3 I'm pregnant!" That way we'll get everyone's reaction on film. The photographer(my sister) does know what's going on so she's in on it. Any other ideas?

On the workfront, I have 3 extra shifts at my perdiem hospital job this week, so there's another $300 more next payday for our goal. And I got my schedule there for December-so far 7 shifts. That's pretty good, because I'm sure I'll get last minute calls if anyone has PTO or calls in sick.

    The classic would be for everyone to go around the table saying what they are thankful for this year -- make sure you go last, and then announce your news.

    Here's how we told my mother (wouldn't work for a group) -- I said we had a little present for her, then handed her a tiny gift bag. Inside was a pair of newborn-sized socks.
