Congrats!! It sounds like you'll be close to Christmas when you announce...
When we were pg the 1st time, we announced right around Easter. We used plastic Easter eggs and put a slip inside saying "You are going to be an ____!" (aunt, uncle, grandpa, etc). We gave everyone a mini basket with candy and the 1 egg and told them a special treat was inside and to open it right then. It was fun & gave them a little keepsake.

Maybe you could do it with little Cmas presents with the announcement inside, or an ornament that says "Grandma" "Aunt" etc... something along those lines.

I'm glad you are excited about sharing your BIG news! Have fun!

could you make ornaments with a sonogram in it? like the clear ones you can get at joann's or something like that. put little itty pine cones in them and maybe some snow...and make copies of your u/s on cardstock and on the back of it write your due date and a cute little holiday saying.

make everyone open at the same time and so that way everyone has a keepsake and everyone has their "own moment" of when they found out.

good luck!!! i love hearing stories of how people tell their families!!!
