Announcing to family?

How did you tell your family you were having a baby? We are looking to surprise them somehow!!

Re: Announcing to family?

Will you be seeing your family in person to announce? I've seen a cute announcement where they got the family together for a picture (Mother's Day family photo, maybe?) and then instead of saying "Cheese" the photographer said "OK everyone say '_________ is pregnant!'" and took the picture as everyone reacted. If you'll be together, that could be a fun way to do it.
Me DH married for almost 14 years, parents to 7 small people, so far.

I told my parents and il by giving them a pacifier with a note that said "dear grandma and grandpa, hold this for me in case I need it when I come visit. Knowing my mom, she'll probably forget it. See you in April!" It was super cute and they were completely surprised!

For DS... DD spilled the beans to the grandparents. We had a trip to disney planned for right around that time so our first evening in the parks we bought mouse ears for everyone including a teeny tiny pair :-) everyone put their ears on and i held the extra one over my belly. DH took a picture and posted it to fb without any caption.
We got lots of comments and likes immediately and we were DYING bc nobody got it. It took til the next day... One person noticed and messaged DH privately in case they were wrong :-)

For our second one, I took a picture of our son holding a heart shaped paper with stick people drawn on it. There was a Daddy, a Mama, a Boy, and a Baby that underneath said "December 2014". We just gave the picture to people. They figured it out fast!
