Hee Hee!!

So, a few posts ago I mentioned how I have babies on the brain.  I guess that's because......I'm pregnant!  Yay!!  =)  Yes, DH and I are expecting our first child.  We're so stoked.  We spent all evening after work running around telling the family.

One of the first family members we told was my mom...and it was quite funny. I told her earlier today that I needed her and her husband's opinion on a card before I posted it on my blog.  Here is the card:


Now, my mom loves elephants, so I knew she would love this card.  On the inside I wrote "Congratulations Grandma and Grandpa!  We love you!" and signed me and DH.  Mom looks at the card, reads the inside, and just says that she loves it and it's cute.  I ask her "Did you read the inside?"  She says "Yes..." with this what-the-heck look.  I said "So...congratulations, GRANDMA..."  You could see the moment it hit her what I was saying...she teared up.  It was fabulous.  =)

One of the parts about tonight DH and I laughed the most about was how many people said "Good job."  For some reason that just cracked us up.  Good job?  Gold star? Good work, here's a cookie....

Ok, off to get some sleep now.  Goodnight!!

Edit: I forgot to mention, the elephant digi is from Anne Bodil over at Bodil's Scrappeverden.  She's got some AWESOME freebies...go check them out!

Awww Congratulations!!! I didn't tell my mom in such a unique way when I had my first! I told her on the phone I had something to say that I didn't want to say on the phone and she goes "you're pregnant aren't you?" lol I'm due in August with baby #5 now :) Oh and I love the card! The elephant is super cute!

I have to say, I don't know how I manage with all my kids either! I just somehow do! But after 3 kids, it doesn't make a difference! It won't be any different having 5! But this is it, I am done after this!

Congratulations again Starla! This card is just fabulous...that image is just adorable and the colors you went with are wonderful! I loved your story...brings back such fond memories from when I told my dh's and my families each time I was pregnant. Enjoy this time...all of it...even if you end up with morning sickness. These are the days that you will remember always!
