telling lolly & pops

We went to our first doctors appointment on Thursday, November 4th, and we had decided to keep our pregnancy a secret until we went to that appointment.  

After keeping it a secret for a little over 2 weeks, I was so ready to tell my parents.  I talk to my every day so it was extremely hard not to say anything to her.  I really wanted to tell them right after our appointment, but I also wanted to tell them in a fun way, so we decided to wait until Friday evening.  After school on Friday, I went to the candy store and bought a giant lollipop.  I made a cute little card and attached it to the lollipop. 
My nephew Carson calls my parents Lolly & Pops, so I thought it would only be fitting to tell them with a lollipop. 
Earlier in the day, I had called my Mom to see if they wanted to try out a new restaurant in town.  She didn't really sound all that interested in going and let me know that my Dad had wanted to see a movie either that afternoon or evening.  I didn't want it to be obvious that we wanted to meet with them to tell them something, so I just told her I would call her later because we needed to come over so I look at some diaper bags for a friend and Matt could talk to my Dad about some sprinkler issues.  When Matt got home I immediately called my parents house.  My little brother answered the phone and said that they had just left for a 6:00 movie.  I was so bummed, because now we were going to have to wait until their movie was over and for them to go to dinner afterwards.  I called my Dad and told him to call us when they got home so we could come over when they got home.  Matt and I ended up trying out Matt's Ranco Martinez without my parents then came home and watched some TV while we waited for them to get home.  We waited and waited and waited.  Around 9:30, I finally texted my Dad asking if they were home.  He called me right back and said, "Come on over."  I think he had forgotten to call me!!

When we got over there, we chatted for a bit and then I busted out the lollipop.  They were so excited for us!!
My Mom said that she had just thought that we might be coming over to tell them we were expecting.  My Dad on the other hand had no idea!!
