    Thanks all for your suggestions so far. I haven't made up my mind yet, will do tonight when DH is at work.

    The last line is in there as DH is 1 of 6 (4 boys, 2 girls) children. His brother's wife is expecting their 3rd bub in April, 1 of his sisters' her DH has had a vestecomy. So that leaves a total of 4 possibilites, which is going to be very amusing for the 3 of us couples that know, to see if his mother can guess.

    What about something at the end like

    I'm a little surprise
    And June's not too far
    But first you must guess
    Who my mum and dad are!

    Hi all,

    Just thought I would let you know how the announcement went. We used the following poem to announce it:

    I may be Pink or Blue; it's too early to show,
    Just hold
    on 'til June; thats when we will all know,
    I am a little surprise and a miracle too
    Now's your chance to guess which family I will belong too!



    We finally announced our surprise to DH's family yesterday in the form of a mystery box (gold box, with pink & blue satin inside, scroll tied up sitting inside the box).

    DH is one of 6 children, 4 of which could of been the owners of the box. It was hilarious watching DH's father try and figure out who the box belonged too. He settled on the GF of DH's youngest brother who appeared horrified that he thought it was her, all the while her BF (my BIL), DH, SIL and BIL, and I (who all knew) are roaring with laughter at the confused look on FIL's face and GF's horrified face.

    MIL's reaction was she thought it was SIL's u/s pic (who is due in April) even though the poem attached had June bolded!

    Made for a very amusing Christmas and a great way to start the festivites

    Thank you all once again for all your help

    Lolly - great to hear it went well. Very imaginative idea (which I might borrow one day!). All the best
