We are in full preparation mode around here, as the days wind down to Thanksgiving. As of tomorrow, our first guests will be arriving- Pat's parents...and by Thursday afternoon there should be another 12 people roaming through the house waiting to eat, while I nag everyone to keep their fingers out of the food until dinner time. This year we will have some fun new guests with us for Thanksgiving dinner- my aunt and uncle from Lanark, a small town in Canada; Neil and Mellisa, our closest friends from Cingular; and Andrew Ward, Grace's boyfriend of the past couple of months- a guy she met in Chattanooga, who has become a precious part of the family.

So, the mad rush continues to get everything together. Because we have only been in the house two months now, there have been many projects we have wanted to take on, but with the two little ones, it is difficult to actually realize many of our home improvement goals. By some miracle, or more likely, through several late nights spent scrambling up and down an aluminum ladder, Pat and I have managed to paint the dining and piano rooms. And the good news...the guest room is officially painted, so any of you readers needing or wanting to make a pit stop here in Atlanta, the doors are open, and your accomodations ready. We would love to see you any time you're passing this way...

I hope you all are looking forward to the weekend.
