Baby Announcement

In case you missed it, these were part of our Christmas cards. We discovered we were pregnant and decided to announce it to our children (and everyone else) with a fun photo session and creative Christmas cards. I also had found these darling school chairs at a local church rummage sale and of course ideas started rolling. My children love to read, so of course I had to incorporate some vintage books. After getting all the props set up, one of the kids said, “Why are there five chairs?” At that point I was already writing on the chalkboard “Welcome Baby #5 to the class” which they read and responded with a “huh???” lol! It was great fun, and it was also very fun to hear friends & family’s reactions to our addition skills (1+1=7!!)
