My family knows I have been going to Orthodox churches off and on. They don't know I am getting chrismated soon. I am not going to sit down and be all serious about them knowing, but if it comes up, I really want them to be ok with it and not question me too much about it.

Yes. It's easier and goes over better for several reasons.

I was just going to keep telling them that I am going to x or y church on Sundays (because I live with them) and beyond that let them bring it up.
