Pregnancy Announcement

First off, let me welcome all my new followers. Thank you ladies! I tried to follow each of you back so if I didn't, just holler at me and I'll fix it. :)

So I scoured the internet and Pinterest to try and come up with a cute pregnancy announcement. There wasn't much out there that we could do without having someone else take the picture or use a self timer. I liked the photo booth pictures I saw and decided to put a couple of my favorites together.

I went out and bought a can of Prego pasta sauce and off we went to the mall. There are two photo booths in the mall and we walked to the closest one first. They give the option of using your debit card so after practicing our poses, Gabe swiped the card. Hmm, didn't work. Tried again and realized the card reader was not even turned on!

So off we went to the other end of the mall to the second booth. Practiced again then swiped the card. This one was on but didn't accept the card. Tried a different card, no luck. The card reader was showing a message, "Not able to accept cards at this time." Well, shoot.

Luckily, I remembered we had some cash in the car! I go to the car, grab the cash and head back to the booth. It worked! We choose our design, and as the first picture was about to be taken, we realized the camera was stuck pointing at the ceiling and it wouldn't move! So there Gabe and I were; standing on the tiny bench inside trying to hold the kids up high enough to get in the picture. Before the first camera click, I lost my balance and fell OUT of the booth! Well, there goes that picture. We must have looked like a bunch of goons! It was not happening at this booth so off we trudge to the OTHER booth yet again.

We only had enough money for one more try so this was it. We put in the money, pick our theme, and would you believe it... the camera was STUCK AGAIN! This time it was low so Gabe and I had to slouch down low but it was perfect for the kids. All this trouble for one little pregnancy announcement!

But we did it and love the result! Unfortunately, when I put it on Facebook to announce it to everyone, the words on my sign were barely readable. :(

What do you think? Don't you just love the theme we picked? Here comes trouble. Perfect...
