9w1d - We Told Our Families!!

Long story short, we ditched the Christmas plan and went home to visit and tell our parents this weekend. We already had our mug and t-shirts ready to go. I drove up on Friday night and K had to meet me there Saturday afternoon after his business trip. So I had to keep quiet for a day until he got there, which was harder than any of the previous weeks since I knew it was getting so close!!

When K got to my parents house we sat around and chit-chatted for a while before I not-so-nonchalantly brought up the video montage I had made. I told my parents that since we never made the one for our wedding and I already had all the pictures pulled together I decided to do it just for fun. They had NO CLUE what they were in for. Well they watched the whole thing, laughing at how silly and young K and I were in most of the pictures. We got to the slide with the positive test and my dad immediately stood up and started hugging us and congratulating us. My mom just sat and stared until the final slide that said "Baby F due in July" and then she started crying and getting all excited. She said her heart stopped when she saw the positive test and thought the next slide would say, "NOT!". Lol...that would be cruel, mom. :)

For K's parents we gave his mom a mug that said, "Grandma F..." on it. She opened it and IMMEDIATELY knew what it meant and started screaming, "Oh my God!! Oh my God!!" Then she got up and hugged us and congratulated us. It was great. His dad didn't see the mug, so I had to take it and show him so he could understand why K's mom was going nuts. He was grinning and as K put it, "Beaming as much as he beams." We then told K's sister and brother-in-law and K's mom called some people. It was fun.

The BEST part was telling my younger brother and sister. They weren't there when we told my parents, and we had gotten them shirts that say, "World's Coolest Uncle" and "Aunt 2009". They opened their gifts at the same time. My sis read hers first and understood immediately. She covered her mouth and waited for my brother to read. He read his shirt and we asked him what that meant. He looked confused, so I asked who he was an uncle to. He pointed to our dogs. Lol. At this point my sister had enough of waiting, came running around the kitchen table screaming, "YOU'RE HAVING A BABY!!!!" She jumped up to hug me and my brother says, "What?!" My parents explained to him that I am pregnant. He says, "You're pregnant? You're pretty skinny!" Haha...so cute.

Last ones to tell personally are my grandma and grandpa. My mom and I are going to their house today and will see them and some of my aunts and uncles. So now the cat is officially out of the bag and it was a great weekend!
