When we first found out we were pregnant we had lofty plans for how we would tell our families that we were having a baby. But then we were way too excited and told them in a pretty straight up "guess who is having a baby"? type of way. Our Mums lucked out and each got a framed pic of a pregnancy test with the words "Baby Walsh" on the bottom....classy right? I think our excitement trumped our creativity there.
We tried to make plans to put a little more effort into it when we told some of our friends...but my graciously turning down wine at Garret's birthday weekend was enough of a tell for all the guests there. As we started telling more people we made time to make a few fun things. Two of our friends are REALLY into the Grumpy Cat Meme so we made this to send:
My friend Harrison texted me immediately after laughing saying "I thought you were telling me you are pregnant" then two seconds later another text "THAT IS YOUR WEDDING RING" Definitely some good laughs there.
I had been bugging Garret for a few weeks to make something cute we could send to his family to tell them. I was thinking something along the lines of a picture with one of our favourite Iphone Aps to snazz it up. He spent some time goofing around with his phone and when he sent me what he made I had to laugh. Not quite what I had in mind

Granted I found this hilarious and so did several of our other friends, but I am pretty sure none of his family listens to Ice Cube so the novelty would have been lost.
