Thankfully we were all feeling well enough to be able to drive out to McMinnville to be with family on Thanksgiving. Jude was a mere 12 days old, beating out his big brother by a few days for earliest road trip! Jude did great on the drive out and back, slept the whole way! Meanwhile, big brother Eli sang songs almost the whole way there and back, serenading us with his recent favorites: ABCs, Twinkle Twinkle, Five Little Monkeys, and Sally the Camel, plus trying to sing along with whatever came on the radio (and he catches on pretty quickly to repetitive songs, i.e. Katy Perry's "Wide Awake" and Rihanna's "Diamonds").
At Thanksgiving Jude was able to meet his cousin Daniel, who was born just 6 days before him! It was pretty cool to see them side by side; we must have good genes in this family! Those are two CUTE kids!
Eli loved having some cousin time over the weekend! Here is the proof:
Over the long weekend we were also able to go to "Santa's Tea" at Aunt Becky's Bed and Breakfast, The Bonnie Blue! This is the annual event where Daniel's Dad plays a pretty believable Santa! The kids loved it! Here are some pictures:
It was a great weekend FILLED with family, food, fun and lots of firsts for sweet Jude!
