Boxerlover24 :  What if you made one gingerbread house, but put 3 gingerbread man cookies outside It? Two adults and a little one.

If you can hide it until Christmas, give a gift that says “Best grandma”, etc. Or just give it as an early Christmas gift.

Boxerlover24 :  So cute, but instead of doing that… why not had gingerbread people? Do one for you, hubby and baby standing out front and put a sign that says welcome to  The Smith’s (obvioulsy your last name).

If this transfer worked we will announce at christmas too. I have thought of different ways to go aboud doing this. I thought of ornaments for the grandparents saying they are being promoted. Or wrapping a box and having them open it to say pick a name.

Boxerlover24 :  you were on the right track 🙂 Another idea is, if you can find a sugar stork… have it sitting on the roof with a sign that says Coming June 2018 (or whenever youre due month is). You have so m any cute opitions.

Thank you 🙂 Im waiting to confirm that this took and then I am going to be trying to think of really good ideas to tell people 🙂

Boxerlover24 :  We told my dad and stepmom that I was pregnant just before Christmas with my first pregnancy. My dad had been asking what we wanted fro Christmas so we gave him a list. It said: wool socks, new dog bed, nice Thermos, stroller, rocking chair, cloth diapers. He stared and stared at the list and then said, “ARE YOU PREGNANT?!” and my stepmom started to cry, it was awesome. Congrats and happy announcing!

I’ve always wanted a Christmas announcement but sadly it looks like it won’t happen this year! Some of my ideas were:

making homemade Christmas crackers so when everyone cracks them open there would be a note inside saying “baby (last name) coming in 2018” instead of a joke

having DH open up the last Christmas present (a shirt that says “be nice to me my wife is pregnant”) and turn it around and show everyone

do a Christmas photo with all your family in front of the tree  and then say.. on the count of three “one two three.. we’re pregnant!” And get their reaction captured 

also, for a photo reveal to your friends you can do it on New Year’s Day and have the caption, “new year, new us, new addition 2018” 

so many ideas!!!

My SIL announced at thanksgiving 3 years ago now. She loaded up her plate extra full and said, “Well since I’m eating for two now…”

Boxerlover24 :  if we’re successful this cycle (which I have a very strong feeling we’ve been) I’ll be 13 weeks along by Christmas day and will announce to our families then.

I was thinking of getting something grandmother/grandfather/grandparent related and wrapping it like a normal present 🙂 a cute but not ott way to tell them. And an awesome Christmas present as it’ll be the first grandchild on both sides and they’ll be over the moon.

That’s my idea anyway 🙂

You bees are making my baby fever 10x worse! Love these ideas. If you go on Pinterest like I just did I saw some super cute announcements with Christmas quotes like “Santa isn’t the only one coming to town. Baby ___ coming 2018.” Also some gifts as “grandparent starter kits” with a little onesie, baby bottle,  and socks.
