Exciting news and how to announce it

We are very, very, very excited that in May we will be having another baby. We will be a multitude of Senns!

I am pretty traditional, I waited until the first trimester was over to tell everyone, although close friends and family members knew already.

I wanted a creative way to let people know on Facebook, Twitter and through email.

I have lots of friends who have taken cute pictures of their older children wearing a tshirt announcing they will be a big brother or sister. This is cute. Really cute. But like I said, lots of people have done this.

At the supper table last night I came up with this idea. A family belly shot.

Jason and I took turns snapping each other's bellies and then I turned to my favorite free photo editing site, PicMonkey!

Here is how to quickly put together your own unique announcement for free using PicMonkey.
