sharing the news!

Joe and I decided that we were not going to share our news with anyone until we were safely through the first tri-mester. This was one of the most difficult things I've ever done...until labor! In the first part of June we went on vacation with Joe's family and told them at that time, then told my family when we got back. At that time our due date was 1/1/07, so we thought it would be fun to make invitations to a new year's eve party.

We had the family together and I said, "you know how I have always wanted to get married on New Year's Eve, well Joe and I decided that this year we are going to have a huge New Year's party. I know it's a long way off, but we wanted to get you invitations so you can be sure to save the day." Then we gave them the invitations and they said:

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
Joe and Kelli invte you to the party of the year!
