  • How did the big announcement go? How was Thanksgiving with all of your extra guests??

  • Thanksgiving itself went great! I was stressin' a little about everyone having a place to sit, but it worked out, lol. My Dh ran out of propane while frying the turkey, but thankfully a friend lived nearby & had some that he was able to bring over before the oil even had time to really cool off!

    The annoucment went very well, it was quite funny actually, wish I had recorded it! I waited until we were all just about to sit down (some people were already filling their plates) and then changed her shirt. She walked out of the room, through the house, passing lots of people who weren't paying attention, and then out the front door b/c some new people were arriving. The people outside saw it & figured it out first. So one of our guests is holding her baby (4 months) on one hip & Kendall on the other. Grandma hasn't noticed yet, so she goes up to her and asks her to read K's shirt. GG read it, but all she is concerned with is the baby and say, "oh, that's cute.....who's my happy baby?" Finally Dh's uncle says "Mom, did you read her shirt?" She said yes and he said, "Um how do you think she is going to be a big sister?" And you see GG's wheels turning and then she says "OH!" I finally said, "I'm pregnant...in case any one else is still confused!" Then a few minutes later I am telling someone how far along I am and Dh's cousin says, "Wait, you were serious?? I thought you were kidding!"

    Oh, and can't leave out the drama: soon-to-be-ex sis-in-law cancelled last minute on allowing us to have her son (son, nephew, great-grandson, etc to us) at 12:30. Then she said we could get him at 5:30pm & she doesn't show up until about 6. Then at 12:30am she shows up where BIL is staying, banging on the door, waking guests up, to pick a fight with him about stupid stuff. Well the guests had borrowered Dh's car. When he got it back, he found out she had KEYED HIS CAR!! He is SO beyond ANGRY with her. And then he was a little wierded out that his brother didn't really have the sort of reaction he thought he would; he said it's like his brother is numb now. (he also didn't congratulate me or him on the pregnancy)

  • Love it...love it....love it!!! OMG...so funny! Reminds me of when DH showed our u/s pic to his stepdad when he was making Hope's first birthday DVD....it took him a minute to get it- wish I had been there to see his face lol! Glad everything worked out for Thanksgiving- crazy family drama! Your poor BIL!!!
