Holy Moly.... Thanksgiving week was a BLUR! We had so much fun, but it was BUSY BUSY BUSY!!!
We flew down to Washington on Tuesday night, the babies were AMAZING on the plane. Makayla waved at EVERYONE, I'm pretty sure she thought everyone was sitting in the plane, just for her amusement. Of course the boys stayed up WAY later then they should have talking and catching up on life... We got up around 8 on Wednesday, got the babies fed, dressed, etc. Seth and Katina had to drop Maya off at her parent's house and then met us over at the house so we could load up the rest of the stuff. We got going about 9:30, there was SO MUCH traffic mostly because it was RAINING and there was a couple accidents that people just HAD to look at. It took us about 7 hours to drive to Eugene, which is longer then usual but not as bad as I expected with the amount of stop and go traffic we sat in.
Wednesday afternoon/night we hung out with the grandparents and Ford got to meet EVERYONE! He was such a good baby, getting passed around so everyone could say HI to him! We stayed at my Aunt's house of Wednesday night so it was fun to visit with them and introduce Ford to them, on Thanksgiving my uncle Zane, cousin Averi, cousin Erik, his girl friend and baby came over to my aunt's. It was nice to see all of them and we got pictures with Ford and Lyrik!!! It was so nice to see a little baby, Lyrik was 2.5 weeks!!! Thanksgiving at Luke's grandparents was low key and a normal "Jacobson" Holiday!!! We suprised everyone and picked up Luke's aunt and uncle (who live in AK), Luke's grandma almost had a heart attack! It was SUCH A NICE SUPRISE for everyone!!!!! So of course we had WAY TO MUCH FOOD, since his uncle is a chef and his dad always makes to much to begin with. We spent the night at Luke's grandpa's on Thursday night, didn't get to bed until almost 2 AM! Ford slept until 8:30 and was still really tired, we got on the road at 4pm (way later then we wanted) but it only took FOUR HOURS to drive back!!! We met my mom for dinner, who was OF COURSE late to pick up my brother from the airport Friday night, but it was okay because she got to spend one on one time with us and her FIRST grandchild!!!
Saturday we went to lunch with my Uncle Tommy, Aunt Janet, my uncle's kids, mom and brother. It was really nice to see everyone... My aunt made us a HUGE afgan, it is SO pretty!!!! Says 2011 on it since we started our family this year! My cousins got Ford the cutest little moose outfit and a little music toy!! We got to stop by and see our old neighbor after we got back from lunch, I miss Elizabeth SO much!!!! It was so nice seeing the girls, they have grown SO MUCH. Elizabeth just sat and watched Ford sleep the WHOLE time!
Saturday night we went out to dinner with Fred, Ashley, Makenzie (Ford's Girl Friend!!), Silvia and Alex, then we went to the Holiday Light show that Pierce County puts on, I'd never been and it was actually REALLY COOL! We then got to go over to Uckie's and hang out for a while. I miss everyone down there so much, you know you are TRUE friend when you can start a conversation and it feels like you still see them everyday instead of twice in the last year! Hopefully we will get down there in April or May, Kenzie and Ford will be SO BIG by then!!
Sunday we got LOTS of pictures with the family, my mom came over before we left for the airport to say goodbye, it was nice being able to see her so much this trip. Then we went to the airport. Our flight was FULL because of another airplane having issues... so it was a LONG flight, it was running late because they had to de-ice the wings, etc etc... Makayla was super tired so she was a little angry but wasn't nearly as bad as some babies I've seen!!!! Ford slept the WHOLE way as per his usual easy self!
We stopped to grab dinner when we got back and ran into Whitney and Beka at Freddie's it was nice to see Beka, since she hadn't gotten to see Little Man! She will be back for Christmas so I'm sure she will get to see him again. Whitney is looking amazing like usual and VERY pregnant! I cannot wait for her to have Riggs!!!! Only a couple more weeks!
