When I found out I was pregnant in early October I knew I wanted to try to keep the secret until Christmas. I wanted a big announcement that was a total surprise to my family. They didn't know we were trying and so I was super excited to plan a big surprise.

It was the hardest secret to keep, but I'm so glad I did, because their reactions were priceless and of course I love creative reveals.

I found these adorable cards from French Bulldog Love and was excited to feature my favorite smushdolls on my pregnancy announcement cards. I sent these out to family who wouldn't be present at the in-person announcement. It was a such a fun holiday season with an extra special gift.

I had a variety of styles of cards, my favorites being this "Baby it's cold outside" with different colored frenchies. I used a few different images that Jordan and I took in front of the tree and out in the backyard.

I made these little cards out of wrapping paper and stamping supplies and put them in little bags with kisses to deliver to family at Christmas Day.

Jordan and I had a photoshoot to document exchanging baby gifts and wrapping gifts for my parents' announcement. This is probably the best wrapping job I've ever done!
