I should really get packing

I’m sitting here ticking off all of the things I need to do tomorrow. I’m taking the kiddos on one of our whirlwind road trips to Atlanta for the weekend because a.) we haven’t done one since August and I don’t want them to get used to having feeling in their legs for 12 hour stretches, b) because my grandparents (their great-grandparents) just spent 3 days trying to buy the correct brand of milk and cereal that although I have told them specifically at least a dozen times this week alone, they will not have purchased the right one, which doesn’t even matter because the kids don’t eat much anyway, but I can’t leave food there out of a guilt reflex so powerful and strong dating back to infancy that I will end up eating 17 bowls of generic Cocoa Pebbles in 2 days, and c) because it’s Thanksgiving and at 38 years old I’m thankful to have grandparents that can, and do, buy the wrong cereal for my children.

So after conferences at 7:30 am, a hair appointment immediately following (want to look closer to 38 than 88), last minute shopping, packing, house-prep, column publication and miscellaneous Traceying; we should be ready to go.

But here’s a couple of pictures and a link to my Thanksgiving column so you don’t miss us too much.

That picture of your son and the bride is priceless.

Where's the intern? I'm sure he looked cute and precious too! Matty should rent himself out as a ring bearer.

Matty looks royal in that picture; as though one day he will take to the polo field.

And, Jessica, way to adorable. Not that the other two aren't it's just, Matty and Jessica's pictures are my favorite.
