At dinner or your family gathering, pass out 3 X 5 cards and some pens for everyone to write something for which they are thankful. Pass around a bowl to collect all the cards, they are done anonymously. Your card will have the pregnancy announcement in it, something to the effect of: I am thankful for the new baby that will join our family next Thanksgiving (or due date). It might take a bit for every one to realize who wrote it, since they don't have names.
