Double the Pleasure, Double the Fun!

I have a really good excuse for not blogging the past few weeks...We are expecting in April! And it's twins! We just shared the news with our families and friends this weekend. It's been so hard to keep it a secret, especially since we found out there were 2 little beans!

Tomorrow I will be sharing the news with my coworkers and wanted to do it in a creative way, so I bought a bunch of little packs of DoubleMint Gum and attached a little poem to it. I'm planning to just leave it in the staff work room in the morning and listen for the shrieks and squeals from my classroom that's just across the hall and down one room. (I work with some very excitable people!)

So here's the little basket all ready to go.

And here's a close up of the poem.

I hope to be back to my perky, crafty, blogging self soon, but I have a feeling that it might be a couple more weeks before I get my energy back. Keep an eye out though, because this is post number 99, meaning the next post is my 100th post and I will have a giveaway!

Have a great week!

Hope your appointment went well! The last time we 'saw' our twins they were both sucking their thumbs and one of them, with legs crossed at the ankles, pushed off the amniotic sac! This is totally surreal. Thinking of you - cch
