The announcement for the Hansonians

It was time to announce to our families and we needed to have a creative way to tell my family about me expecting so this is how we did it...
Cassidy(my sister) was speaking in her LDS church so we decided to have the family come over after to our house for a visit.

 To create a hint me and Brandon made small little baby cookies for the family to eat when they came over. Before they came over we slipped pieces of paper from the bottom of the cookies and made sure they were hidden from site. On each of these pieces of paper we wrote a random activity that the eater of the cookies was suppose to do. We had things like do a cartwheel, play the piano, do a jig, push ups and so on..  her are some of pictures of them doing what their cookie told them to do. 



Tanner kissing a girl... (haha not he really did a cartwheel but he really wanted to kiss a girl)

Lexi doing push ups


Shae doing a dance



Now the GRAND FINALE ... we handed our last cookie to my mom and her cookie told her  to open the cabinet doors to the T.V.

Tada! This is what she found...




Mom was very excited...
so was Cassidy and Kelsi that they forgot to put their hands down for awhile...

Hands up are still up...
Lexi flew across dad and landed right on top of me.

Finally my dad notices Brandon..


Then... mom attacked Brandon



The happy soon-to-be-parents...
as you can tell i was nauseous but what do you expect from a pregnant lady! haha

I loved the narrative with pictures...it makes it so much more interesting. As usual, Dad is slow to get what's going on. :)

That was fun to see everything that happened.. I didn't realize what everyone else was doing. Too bad we couldn't see parks though.. he probably was in la la land with JD and McCall ahah

Kelsi Hansen said...

I love how you documented it in pictures. It's entertaining to see how everyone reacted. I like how Parker shows absolutely no emotion. Also Cass and I really know how to get excited about things haha.

Lexi said...
