Long-distance Announcement

Any other moms-to-be live far away from family? My family all lives in Michigan, but DH and I are in Florida. Trying to think of special ways to break the news to family (especially our parents)without  just calling! Any ideas?

Re: Long-distance Announcement

  • I live on the East coast of Canada and my folks live in Florida. For DS I sent them each an ornament with their new titles on them and told them I'd like to see them on camera when they opened it so we facetimed.

  • I bought an etsy wish bracelet for my sister that said Aunt; my plan was to send it to her and have her open it on facetime but then she moved so I opened it for her on facetime lol

  • I told my brother, who lives in a different state, over FaceTime. This time, I told him that DS need advice from my nephew on how to be a big brother. It was cute.

  • We plan on sending some customized "Save the Date" style announcement cards to all of our extended family members and far away friends after we have told our parents & siblings in person. We have only told ONE couple so far bc we go on vacays with them a lot and we were TTC to be preggo together!

  • we plan on sending announcement cards as well :) I'm sending my niece a "big cousin" charms bracelet. She's the first grandchild on my husbands side and is super loved and spoiled by all of us.
