WE MADE IT!!!!!!



Wow...what a day!! I haven't slept in over 24 hours and my boys are in the next room going crazy because they DID sleep on the plane. We have a big day tomorrow. We are going to the Forbidden City, and The Great Wall which we're very excited about.

Here are a couple of pictures from the plane. We lucked out and the gate agent in New Orleans upgraded us so we would have more leg room. It was much nicer and we had quite a few seats to ourselves to stretch out. Thanks for all the prayers and support. I will have a better update tomorrow when I can keep my eyes focused. :)

Here's a little tidbit for the boy's classmates: We actually flew over the North Pole! We looked for Santa, but did not catch a glimpse of him! :) The screen in the plane showed us a map as we flew and we could track our progress. At one point it was -100 degrees!!!!! Can you believe that? Crazy!!

Three more days until "GOTCHA!!!"

Ni Hao :-) SO thrilled to see that you are THERE! How's the smog? Seriously - your boys are going to love love love the Great Wall - you will be glad you've got your UGGS! Try to get some sleep, sister. You won't be sleeping in three days - because you won't be able to take your eyes off of Wesleigh!

Aaron and Erica said...

YAY!!!! You are there!!!! I pray that you will be able to come down off of the high that you are probably on so that you can get some rest before the big day. I'm so glad that your boys were able to travel with you...this was something we never regretted, even when the jet lag was really hard on them. It's a wonderful thing to be able to talk about our time in China with our boys.

Can't wait to see that sweet girl in your arms!

Girl, I woke up at 2am EST this morning and was thinking about your family. I was wondering if you all had made it or if you were still in the air. What an amazing journey. Try to soak it all up. This is YOUR trip of a lifetime.
