108th Mommy Mondays - St. Patrick's Day Hunt & Announcement

I was so excited for today!!! I've been thinking about it for a week!!! Eeek!!!

Read about all the excitement on St. Patrick's Day 2017

My husband was able to get the day off. My photo-op time for FanX changed to a little earlier so we figured we'd pick the kids up around 1:40 and head straight to the train. Because of that we decided to tell the kids this morning with their St. Patrick's Day hunt.



Here's a link to the video. They are so funny!

Yup we're pregnant! #3
I made the video because my mom wanted a video to show family while they were in the Philippines. They don't have the best connection so video on FB was the most creative way I could tell them. I'm glad the kids are excited. 



Once we got to the last line, one of the guys noticed my shirt and thought that was cool =) (I was wearing Babe with the Power ---- from the movie, Labyrinth)
Once we got to the area and I saw him taking pictures with other people was when I got most excited. Luckily everything worked out and they let us use our signs. I just asked Zachary Levi if he could help us and he took the sign, read it and said Congratulations. We got the kids in better positions with his help. Both the kids were touched by Zachary Levi!!! Then we took our picture....and he asked if this was our announcement. I said yes and he said that's awesome! I told him Thank you and we left. I was so excited about our picture. I ordered a digital copy too since it was only $10.

In case it's hard to read the signs....
Zachary Levi's: They're pregnant! "I'm not freaking out. Are you freaking out?" (Tangled Quote)
Mine: Doing my best not to Freak Out. Baby Nelson #3 Due October 5, 2017
Hubby's: Not Freaking Out. Baby's 1st FanX
Son's: Excited!!! (oh well that he wasn't really smiling)
Daughter's: Yay!!!


I am so impressed with how well the kids did in the less than 1 minute we had to pose for the picture. So happy! Best day this year!

My soon to be FB Cover Photo =D when everyone gets to know.

This was planned =). We've always been inspired when to have our kids. Heavenly Father luckily gave me a couple months to get used to the idea of having another (because I'm kinda freaking out for those who are familiar with my struggles with my mental health after having my daughter in 2011 and the fact I've pretty much sold all our big baby items in our last 2 moves)....especially since my daughter and this one will almost be 6.5 years apart!

What are some creative ways you announced your pregnancy?
With our first we just e-mailed the ultrasound picture. With our 2nd we did a shirt for our oldest and mailed our cards. This one will be hard to beat if we decide to have a number 4.
