So my gender scan is on Monday. Dh, my dad, and MIL are attending and we are going to find out there. So here is some background info:
Dh and I currently live with his family. My family is spread apart...no one lives in the same town. My plan so far is to make cupcakes with either pink or blue frosting in the middle and each person in dh family will get to find out Monday night.
My dilemma is...I dont know to reveal it to my side of the family. No one can get together, especially not during the week. Id like to do something fun, since dh family gets to do the cupcakes but I don't know what. I also...HATE calling and having to talk to twenty different people to tell them the same thing. I want something pretty immediate so I can announce it on facebook.
(most of my family does not have facebook but a friend of the family does and everyone would be offended if they didn't know first)
My idea is to take a picture of one of the cupcakes cut open and email it to everyone in my family and have them ready to check their email that night. Is that a good idea? Anyone have any other suggestions?
I think the email is a good idea. I didn't want to call 20 people either, so hubby and I just called my sister, and his immediate family and after that I just posted it on facebook. My mom, who went to the u/s with me, probably called her family and told them, but I wasn't about to do that. lol
If my mom wasn't at the u/s with me, and couldn't go to the party, I'd probably call her at the time of the reveal so she could listen, but that is just me.

I agree, email sounds like a good idea. Or picture messaging, if they can get it on their phone. I'm sure if you notify everyone to check their email that night, they will. Although I wouldn't be shocked if they all call, and you still end up talking to 20 people that night. LOL
I texted everyone a picture of a little sister onesie! It was a little more fun than just saying, it's a girl. A girlfriend of mine did a video broadcast of their gender reveal so those who weren't there could still see...it was fun!
