How to announce to family theough Skype?

My family is in Europe and I'm planning on telling them this weekend when we will see them on Skype. I'm 11weeks preg. We have DD1 2.5yo and DD2 11months. I was thinking having my older daughter show them the sonogram pic... Do you have some other idea about a nice way to tell them?

Have the youngest wearing a, "I'm a big sister" shirt and just talk until they notice it. Or even say hmmm, do you notice anything different about little so and so (wearing the shirt). Oooo.. and maybe for the oldest a shirt that says, "I'm a big sister AGAIN!".

You could do something like, have your oldest come in carrying the ultrasound picture, and "freak out" and say "Where did you get that?! Oh my goodness!" And get up and run to her. Then when you come back, they are going to say "What was it?" And you say, "Oh, just an ultrasound picture of our new baby coming in May."

I actually found a nice way ti tell them: I asked them what weighs 4grams and measures 4cm? (which is approximately the measurements for our baby) and they didn't find the answer (my sisters did guess though!) so I showed them the US pic. They liked it! It is the 6th grandchild fort parents, they have had one or two every year since 2010 so 2013 is covered haha!!
