Geek Pregnancy Announcements

I just realized that I never shared the pregnancy announcement photos that my husband and I posted to Facebook.  While traditional announcements photos are all very well and good, we didn't want to straight up steal Kim and Dustin's idea.  So we each came up with our own ideas...

Mine was pretty simple.  Since we are big fans of Dungeons and Dragons and other role playing games, I thought it would be fun to use some of our favorite d20s from our respective dice collections.  The tiny baby dice is malachite, by the way - a Christmas gift from Kyle many years ago.  They're all showing 20s because that's the best possible roll.

Chris went in a slightly different, slightly darker direction.  He got most of our friends together (Kyle and Heather were kind of busy since it was their wedding) and had everyone pose without telling them about his nefarious plans for the photo.  Then, after a little bit of editing, he was ready to make the big reveal.

I'm really happy with the way they both turned out - I think they really represent who we are as people.  And, I imagine, as parents...
