Christmas Surprises

We decided to tell our families about our big announcement on Christmas, since we were able to spend time with both sides this year! Here are some videos of us breaking the news!
Both of our families had absolutely ZERO idea! 
(You'll want to get the tissues ready.)

Telling My Family:
First of all, my mom LOVES Birds. We bought a small box from a seller on Etsy that said "Crack Me" on the inside of the lid. Inside the box was a tiny quail egg. Once it was cracked a little note fell out that said, "We are adding to our Nest! Baby Gordon July 2014"
Warning: the start of this vid is long.

My mom is going to kill me when she sees I posted this. Love you, Mom!

Telling My Pink Gma:
For Christmas I asked everyone in the family to send me a little letter or note on why they love Pink Grandma, or a memory they had of her. I compiled 31 letters together in a book, and on the last page I wrote a note from Baby Gordon that included a picture of the ultrasound..

Telling My Gma B:
We had the same little Quail egg for my Gma B. Due date is also Gma B's birthday!

Telling the In Laws:
We found the cutest little shop on Etsy that makes tiny boxes and clay replicas of how big your baby is week-to-week. I was 9 weeks when we broke the news and Baby was the size of a Green Olive. Spencer's mom got a different surprise!

We are SO grateful everyone was so excited and supportive about our exciting news!
We have the best friends and family in the world!

    1. haha that was my dad being a smart ass- My gma is vegetarian and doesn't eat omelets. So it's no wonder she didn't know how to crack an egg ;)
