What's the cutest announcement you've seen? We're keeping it quiet for awhile, since I had a miscarriage in June. I can't wait to share the news with everyone in a cute way. Especially my kids!!

We were going to get DS a big brother shirt and let him wear it and just wait for prople to notice.  Not terribley creative, but fun anyway.  Unfortunately, I couldn't find one in size 2T and I couldn't keep my mouth shut.

We are one of those annoying couples who is always taking the camera & tripod and taking pictures together. So we are planning on making a sign that says "We're expecting" or something like that, and taking pictures with it and sending that out.

For DD our 1st trimester ended right around Thanksgiving so i showed up at our family gatherings with a shirt that said "tis the season to be pregnant"....my family caught on MUCH quicker than DH's family!

For our parents/siblings we had this poem about the baby being excited to meet them in 9 months and gave it them to read, my mom barely got through the first line before she blurted out "YOUR PREGNANT?!?!" I made her finish the poem and allow others to finish before answering her....silly woman!

For this one we got our DD a shirt that says "cutest sister ever" on it and plan to have her wear it.....it was really hard to find a "big sister" shirt.  I used the shirt to announce it to DH too!

I've heard of people putting ultrasound pics or even just a card with due date in a picture frame and having people open that as an announcement?!?!?!

What a cute announcement! I love it! I think for family and siblings, I'm going to get one of those skeleton t-shirts with the baby skeleton in the belly. I love Halloween and so do my kids so I think they'll get a kick out of it.
