The bags are packed, we're ready to go...

We're about to take our first vacation as a family of four and we're flying. God help us all, we're flying. Our theory goes as such: we now live a 22 hour drive away from home, this means that our options are a) spend 2 days driving with 2 small kids all the way back to Washington, look at them the entire trip, and then spend another 2 days driving home with them (assuming that they live that long); or b) spend 3 hours with them and 100 people we have never met, and will quite likely never see again and gain an extra 2 days at home with family for the holidays. We'll be taking option b, thank you very much.

We're praying that there is an open seat on the plane that we can put Haley and her carseat into, but just incase we have dvd's, snacks and loads of books and new toys to keep her busy in Jeff's lap. YEA to be the breastfeeding mommy!

All the traveling aside, this is going to be a (mostly) fun filled trip home. We have Jeff's grandma's memorial service to attend, but after that, it's family, and a trip to Macy's to see the REAL Santa - He lives in Seattle, we're pretty sure! Oh and we'll be hooking up with a select couple of old friends for a dinner.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
