It was so great!

We got to my mom's house for Thanksgiving at 8:30 in the morning. I don't know how I did it, but I managed to keep my mouth shut till right before we ate dinner (luckily, we ate at 3!). I spent the morning running around "documenting the day", so no one thought it was weird when I asked everyone to gather around the food so I could take a picture. Their reaction was so funny! They repeated what I said without realizing what it meant at first. It took them a bit before they reacted. Hilarious : )


Mom hugged the bloat, but it wasn't too weird and the rest of the family gave us hugs. Everyone was really happy and baby's health and safety was added to the Thanksgiving prayer. We told my brother and SIL over the phone, and we're waiting for DH's parents to come over in a couple of days to tell them in person. I think I might tape that one as well (though, I never take pics of them, so it might spark suspicion... we'll see). We're waiting to tell everyone else until Christmas. I'm really hoping that mom and grandma can keep it to themselves until then : )
