I am always a woman obsessed when it comes to announcing our pregnancies to our families. I have been stumped, but then I saw a cute video of a couple who used the game Mad Gab to tell their folks. Uh... YOINK! Stealing that idea!

For those of you who don't know, Mad Gab is game where you have to read a bunch of random words out loud and try to guess what phrase they are actually meant to sound like, using your common sense, luck, and the kindergarten skill of phonics. For example, "High Wheel Hall Weighs Loaf Veiw" becomes "I Will Always Love You." Our families LOVE board games in general, and Mad Gab in specific, so it will be perfect!

Here's what our modified card will say:
"Sir Pry Eyes Britain Pen Harper Egg Nunned!"
(Surprise! Brit and Ben are pregnant!)

I can't wait for Mother's Day! It's going to be so great!!!

I hope that your family isn't very competitive. No fights breaking out over sharing pregnancy news! Hehehehe

I'm probably one of the most competitive and I'll be in on it, so hopefully we won't get too carried away.

I'm going to try to film it, but I'll have to be sneaky so no one knows something's up...

This is a cute idea, I have no idea how to tell the family. I really want to wait longer, but mothers day would be a good day too (I wish I was farther a long to do that) I feel I jinxed myself by telling everyone right away in Jan....so I am trying to hold out til at least 10 weeks....but I am soo bad at keeping things.

Yeah. We aren't telling everyone. Just immediate family. We will wait until 12 weeks to tell everyone else. I just can't keep this a secret from our parents that long! I am already dying to tell them!
