So Ready!

Well it's after midnight, so technically we are leaving for China today!

We picked up my sister in law, Wendy & nephew, Will at the airport and did some last minute shopping today. I'm so thankful that they are hanging out here with my mom while we are gone. Thanks for holding down the fort! Not to mention being our ride to and from Midland to the airport!

While Allie and I finished our packing and took care of last minute details, Emily & Will watched "The Amazing Panda Adventure." Are they adorable together or what!

Poor Allie. I had him unpacking and readjusting our luggage to try and meet the international weight limits so many times and he was still smiling at me! So much for the "mock packing" he tried do to about month ago.

It's almost 1 a.m. and soon we will try and sleep in our beds for the last time as a family of four. Our luggage is packed and we are so ready to be a family of five!!!!

On a side note, if you are following along and would like to leave a comment while we travel we would really appreciate it. It's simple really. Just set up a blogger account (where you create a username and password) sign in using your username and password, and then type in your comments. Currently blogger is blocked in China but I will be e-mailing posts to a friend of mine (thanks phantom blogger friend!) and she will be posting them here for me. So you will still be able to follow along just like you have been. I will be able to read your sweet comments but I won't be able to publish them until we return. Please know that I will read and cherish each comment and e-mail we receive while we are traveling but I may not have the time or internet connection to respond. I love y'all!!!!

Today is the day! The day you have been waiting.....and waiting for! We are so very excited for you! Can't wait to read all about it. Be safe and remember we are praying for you. I certainly hope Allie was kidding about trying all those exotic foods! Rat on a stick just turns my stomach to mention it! Glad you have the meds! HA! God bless you and keep you safe! Lots of Love!
