The Word Is Out!

Being home since Sunday night... Doug didn’t think I could keep the secret, but I did! I had been a little sick before I’d left, with Saturday being my worst day yet so I will admit that I was a little hesitant how this all might go down. Doug thought I should say I was beginning to feel sick, so if things got bad... I would have laid the foundation! I was pleased to find out that while in Ohio I actually felt really good... for the first 3 days anyways!

Doug FINALLY got in at 5pm on Christmas Eve and he thought we should tell my family at my Grandma’s house that night. I had thought about this already, but being such a big gathering... I wasn’t sure. Anyways, I brought the ‘card’ and was prepared to tell the big news when the time was right!

At 9PM Dad and Colby planned to leave to go home to bed, so I knew I had to work fast! The card was addressed to ‘Greg & Tami’ with instructions of ‘Open together.’ FINALLY they opened it, without anyone leaving! Dad knew what the card was saying right away and began to tear! Mom... it took a few minutes to set in, then her mouth hit the floor! She gave the card to Rihana & Alex and the surprise was shared all over again. 

No one could believe we’d kept it a secret since Dec. 6, but we knew telling them in person would be worth the wait for everyone! 

We also told Doug’s parents that night... only there response was a little different.
After they read the card and told us ‘Congratulations,’ Kelly said she had something to tell us. She had called our favorite coffee shop ‘Urban Coffee Lounge’ on Saturday to put money on Doug’s gift card and they said “Oh, Congratulations!” “We know too much about our customers.” She instantly hung up the phone and said, “I think Chandra’s pregnant!” 

What are the odds!
