Cooking in the Oven

Well as some of you may already know, due to some unnamed sources... we received some pretty exciting news in July. Here is the step by step process of how the news was ulitmately released...

Going potty...

Waiting for the magic to do some damage..

The results say....?

So, our next step was to determine who to tell first. Now we were leaving to California where we'd see both our families the next week and we wanted to tell them in person, so we had a dilemma because we really wanted to tell someone, but you can't tell friends before family. But then we thought of our three favorite Texans (Mckay, Mckana, and Mcjaedyn) and we were pop our anxious bubble.

Next we had to to come up with a scheme on how to release the news to our family, with our masterminds at work together we came up with a masterminded resolution...

McCall's family: We decided to do a card trick and write I'm pregnant on the reverse of the cards for the finale. Papa Fisk screamed and hollered but I think the little ones were kind of confused, probably thinking about How to beat minesweeper (on the computer screen in the pic)

J.D.'s family: we decided to take pics of their rxn: I said, "Everyone say Cheese, oh and by the way..... McCall's pregnant!"

Mom was the only one to believe me, everyone else is still smiling

I think Shelby is getting it and maybe Tanner. Cassidy and Kelsi are still waiting for the pic.

Ok... Now everyone understands, the boys aren't as excited...

Lexi is content to let her older sisters celebrate and Parker is wondering why everyone is so happy.


  1. I am so glad I get to be the first to comment and say congrats officially!
    Those are creative ways to tell the big news. And McCall, you are looking so great!

  2. You definitely had one of the most creative ways to announce you were having a baby.
    In the last pic it looks like I have to explain to Brandon whats going on. No way he says.

  3. hahahaha - great stuff. wish you would have had a video of papa fisk hollerin' :)
