The big event . . . .

In a previous post I mentioned the fact that Jacob has his first girlfriend and that the other weekend he pulled the wool over his Grandmothers' eyes when it came to meeting her. Well, today we had a get-together at his Grandparents' house and yes believe it or not he invited Raechel! The minute his Grandmothers' found out they couldn't hide their excitement. What added to the comedy was the fact that his Auntie was visiting for the weekend and was falling right in behind them about ready to explode with anticipation. I told them that they all looked like they were getting ready to hit the all you can eat buffet after fasting for a week! I truly was picturing all three of them trying to be first out the door and actually ending up getting stuck in it. It was hilarious, they were all betting to see which one would get there first. Poor Raechel. Well the moment arrived, believe me it was like they had radar or something. They saw that truck coming it seemed from a mile away. The minute the truck hit the driveway they were sprouting out the door like three dragsters coming off of the starting line. But, I'll have to admit not a single one of them made any embarrassing comments. And, they kept their cool so they didn't "embarass" Jake. Plus, Jake actually introduced Raechel to the crowd. Believe me I was proud but probably more shocked that he actually acknowledged the three water-mouthed women standing there with the biggest grins this side of Texas. . . . .
