Spilling the Beans Part 1

We decided to wait and tell our parents at the same time and in person till Thursday. We were getting a new couch and we had previously spoke about having a couch warming party. We decided to go ahead with the party plans and have everyone over, that way they wouldn't be suspicious. After everyone arrived we waited till they all had a drink or two. We started by giving Tommy his birthday gift of a new radio for his back porch.

Then we asked each set of parents to sit together and open their gifts at the same time. We had seen Tervis Tumblers that said Grandma and Grandpa at Bed, Bath and Beyond a week or so before and thought when we have kids that would be a great way to tell them!

So the Monday night we found out, we headed to B3 and picked up the tumblers. I put each set in a gift bag and the parents preceded to open them. My mother knew immediately and kept asking is this a joke, no, they wouldn't do that to Tommy and Gloria. Gloria thought it was a cute gift from her grand-puppies. Greg and I looked at each other thinking, oh great, we are gonna have to explain this, but my mom knew right away and as soon as we said no we aren't joking we are gonna have a baby everyone's face lit up and they got teary. Hugs were given out left and right and everyone was shocked, surprised and very excited. It was a fun and emotional night for all. We ate Greg's homemade spaghetti sauce with noodles (Yum!) and sat up till 10 talking about all that was gonna happen! It was a great night and we have the best family!
