My Bags Are Packed!

As many of you know, we are leaving tomorrow for my family reunion.  I've been spending most of my day running around trying to get things done and get myself and two children packed...not a small task.  This afternoon, I was working on getting all of my things into my bag.  I had sorted out all of my clothes into piles and had them on the floor next to my bag.  I walked back into my closet to gather a few more items and I heard Christopher say something about helping Mommy (he had been watching a movie on my bed while I was trying to get organized).  I'm sure you can see where I'm going with this.  He proceeds to pile all of my neatly folded clothes into my bag.  After each trip to go get another pile, he crunches down what he had already put in there.  Half of me is cringing with the thought of all my clothes getting so wrinkled and the other half is just filled with joy over how sweet my little boy is to try and help!  I'll have to wait until tonight when he goes to bed to re-pack as I don't have the heart to do that in front of him.  Fortunately, things are very casual at the King family reunion and I don't really care if my clothes are wrinkled!


I don't think these pictures do the bag justice of how messy my clothes are in there...



In other news, I have been trapped upstairs, along with the kids of course, to escape a wasp that somehow managed to get inside my house.  For those of you who know me well, or if  you read this blog on a regular basis, you know of my extreme fear of wasps and bees.  This does not bode well for my "to-do" list of things that need to be done before we leave town tomorrow morning, hence why I seem to be finding the time to blog right now...

Well, since it will be a few days before I will post again, I'll leave you with a new picture of Lucy I took this morning.  I LOVE this little outfit on her!  It is from my cousin, Julie.  Thanks Julie!

Yea! So glad Lucy loves her pinked out clothes! I can actually feel your pain of packing. Only because after being at John's parents' for the entire Fourth of July weekend, I had less than 24 hours to wash, repack, bake, etc. Remind me to tell you about the candy jar! Can't wait to see the kids!

Cute pics! I love Christopher's new haircut and Lucy's precious outfit. How'd the wasp get in there? How scary! See you Friday!

she is so precious! And what a great helper Christopher is. Can't wait to hear how "Dancing with the Stars" goes at reunion!

It is so great he is so helpful. I have two of those now. Well, one is intending to be helpful and the other just likes throwing clothes and anything he can get his hands on out of cabinets, baskets, bags, etc...enjoy your trip!

I like the pic of your good helper. And Miss Lucy's face is fab- "mama, why are you taking another picture of me?" Hope y'all are having fun.
