I know a lot of us might be sharing the baby news this holiday season. So has anyone come up with a cute way of doing it? Care to share the fun ideas you've all come up with so far? Better yet, are you going to video it so we can all see the moment they figure it out? Don't worry, I'm not going to steal your ideas, DH and I came up with our idea last week We're going to let the dog tell them We're going to have a custom made T-shirt made for the dog with a picture of baby footprints on it saying, "The pitter-patter of little feet... Coming July, 2012!"

So, let's hear it ladies!

We are going to have DD wear a big sister as we get off the plane and pray that the IL's don't post anything on facebook.

For my family, I am wrapping a gift for my mom and dad to open together in front of family. If I can swing it! I'm going to take a picture of DD wearing her "big sister" shirt and put in a frame that says "I love my grandkids" or "grandkids are special" I can't remember what the frame says...but I hope between the shirt and the plural for grandkids they'll get it! DD is the only grandkid so yeah. AND, I think it will be really special if they can open it together because they are divorced and I hate calling one first, then the other. It'd be great to "tell them" at the same time.

We are making our annual family calendars that we give the grandparents with the month of July being a picture of each girl with their name and birthdate and then the sono pic of the new baby.

We wanted to wait a bit longer, like around week 12 or after, but... it seems my body isn't going to let us keep it secret that long My bbs have already gone up a cup size and I think they're going to start wondering soon and we don't want them to figure it out before we can tell them. We want it to be a complete surprise to them

Way cute ideas ladies!!! We are putting this poem in a frame wrapping it up putting it under the tree. Here is the poem. I'm unsure who is the author. But it's cute.

I do not have a face to see
Or put inside a frame.
I do not have soft cheeks to kiss.
I don't yet have a name.

Not yet can you hold my tiny hands
Nor whisper in my ear.
It's still too soon to sing a song
Or cuddle me so near.

But all that will change come this July
When they say I am due.
I am your newest grandchild;
And I can't wait until I meet you!

All I ask between now and then*
Is your love for me to grow.
I promise I'll be worth the wait
Because of all the love we'll know!

So as you're waiting patiently
Please pray a lot for me.
I cannot wait to be a part*
Of this great family!*

We are going to have older DD show her little sister's ornament she got this year (a middle child ornament!) and see if they connect the dots

I bought my mum this massive tall frame, on it, it has written, "Happiness is... having grandkids to love". It has 4 photos up the top, then says Happiness is.. then 2 pics in the middle then Grandkids to love and to love then 4 more down the bottom. So I thought I'd feel the frame with family photos and in the middle I will have a photo of the ultrasound or something and see how long it takes for her to work it out
