All our bags are packed...

We're ready to go. The limo's waiting, he's at the door (well, ok at 6 am) We're leaving on a jet plane....* We're going to get our big guy! Leaving on a jet plane! Yea! I will try to post a pic of the packing.. but I am so tired and can only sleep for 2 hours.. so.. this will have to do!

Final Tally:

3 Backpacks
1 Carry-on (small and light)
1 Stroller (love my Volo!)
3 Checked bags (Huh?) 2 at 30lbs and 1 at 25 - we are SO good to go!

Puffs packed - 1 gazillion
Socks - 6 is the optimal number of pairs
New Hat for EFP - 1
Swanky new spring coat for EFP - 1
Shoes - 3 for EFP 2 for me :-( I really wanted to bring my crocs... maybe they will have some there!

Medicine (enough to make a developing nation well!)

Quart Size Ziplocks for liquids.. 3
Thinking a quart size bag is a waste of time - Everyone
How many things I snuck into the other 2 quart size bags... 4 (tee hee - I put my tiny hairspray in DH's bag!!)

Amount I am going to miss my friends and family - to the Moon and back... but only for a little while! When we return we bring more love to go around!! Our hearts are elastic - they stretch to fit even more than our arms can encompass and then some..... there is ALWAYS room for one more!

Love you all! Think good thoughts... and please stop in and say hi!

PS - to TBG in case you don't get my email: I can NOT believe you did that.... ! We LOVE the shirts and I can not wait to see my TWO in them. It was so unexpected and welcome - means so much to us that you were thinking of us... thank you again - big hugs and thank EG for bringing the giftie!! Love and hugs to all!


*Thanks to CK for the reminder of this oldie!

Bon Voyage! Hope there were plenty of snacks in those bags. WE wouldn't have survived our trip without plenty of chocolate and dried fruit. Have a great trip!

Hi,
I've been reading your blog for the past few weeks...I can't remember how I found it but I'm glad I did. We are adopting a 5 year old boy from Guangxi in the next 2 months so I'm looking foward to reading about your trip to China and seeing how your 6 year old transitions with you all! Very exciting...I wish you all the best!!!

Take care,
