Our Christmas was the usual whirlwind of visiting family. I won't bore you with the details, but Christmas Eve meant my husband spent the day with his dad and brothers - I made a quick stop there and then spent the evening with my family at my grandma's and church. Christmas Day we did our own presents at home (finally got my Snuggie - whoo hoo! haha). Then we headed to my parents', my grandma's, his grandma's, and his mom's.
Baby Miller Reveal #1 happened at my mom and dad's. Once everyone had opened presents, I gave my sister a gift bag and said, "Oh, this one's for (my niece) too." It was this onesie:
She opened it and said, "Big cousin?!" and her fiance said, "Big cousin?!" and my mom says, "Big cousin?!" But my mom didn't get it at first! She saw the pink outfit and thought it was a shirt my dad had bought my niece and thought he got the wrong one! My sister sarcastically said, "Yes mom, their cat is having kittens," and my mother says, "The cat is having kittens?" and I was like, "Mooommm!" (She's really ditzy sometimes!) Finally she got it and was like, "I can't believe you kept this a secret!" But of course they were happy and excited.
Reveal #2 came at my husband's mom's house. His mom and stepdad already knew, if you recall, but I wanted to break the news to his siblings, especially my friend K who dates his brother and his pregnant SIL who I promised to tell right away.
I pulled the same trick and said, "This one's for (niece to be)," and gave the same onesie to my SIL in a gift bag. We finished opening presents and K says to my SIL, "You haven't opened (niece's) present." She's like, "Oh, right!" So she opened it and said, "Big cousin!?" and her eyes got big and she looked at me and I said, "Hopefully it will fit her in August!" And K goes, "Are you pregnant?!?" and I said yes, and she said, "That is a VERY big secret to keep from me!" And they both got all teary eyed, and my hubby's brother says, "I SO called it!" (He had texted my husband when we were out to eat the other day asking if I was pregnant because I hadn't been drinking.) Then my SIL and I started talking pregnancy, which was nice - we go to the same ob/gyn so it will be nice to know what to expect in the next few months.
So Christmas was a success! Unfortunately yesterday I came down with the flu, so I've spent a couple of days on the couch telling my little appleseed to hang in there while mom tries to get better! Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!
