To Grandmothers house we go...

This is how my day went:

Oliver and Nicholas crash our bed last night at 3:00 am.
Packed family up to travel for Thanksgiving to St. Louis.
Browsed this article.
Picked up Ollie from school and taught him the art of dipping Wendy's french fries into their frosty's.
Pack more.
Made Ramen noodles and hot chocolate for dinner. Awesome.
Pack more.
Oliver gets sick with sore throat.
Make Mr. Nielson run a few errands for me.
Pack more.
Vacuum breaks.
Play "Peter and the Wolf" on our record player for children.
Carry sleepy children to bed.
Check clock-midnight.
Dishwasher breaks.
Finish packing.
3 more loads of wash.
In bed.
Thinking about the 3 more loads of laundry waiting to be done and the load of dishes that need to be done.
Think about waking up in 5 short hours.
Think about Thanksgiving weekend with my folks.

Check out Nicholas' new dog Wolfie. And he talks.
And a few reminders:
