Photos - Telling J's Grandma

The photographer mailed the pictures to my office yesterday and it was fun re-living the night we told J's family.  I thought I would share a few favorites... 


Jamie, myself and Shirley

A standing ovation before the movie and toasts were made...


Jamie and I thanking guests, about to make the announcement...

Reading the card...

Opening the envelope inside the card with the ultrasound picture...

Looking at Jamie as Jamie confirms that we are expecting...

The best photos...




My favorite...another moment worth every bit of effort we put into this journey.

I'm lucky to have experienced this night.  This night completely blew us away.  I love seeing everyone's reactions in the photographs as Jamie announces that we're pregnant.
