Because we would find out on a Monday, on Thursday I mailed the cards in two separate envelopes to my parents. I labeled the envelopes with numbers, and wrote on my calendar at home which envelope contained which card. Then I mailed them off with strict instructions not to open until I called to let them know which number was the correct one

Jeff's parents live closer to us, so we decided to have them come over to our house. We asked them to come to lunch that day, then stay to watch the kids while we went to the appointment. I wanted to do something fun with the children to announce it, and after finding several options on-line I chose Silly String. I figured they'd have the most fun with that! When I bought it at a party store after the appointment, I also chose a small selection of pink candies for the children to share.
