Still packing!

Yes, at 2am.  We leave the house at 6am.

So, why the blog entry?  Just to say that even through the exhaustion and craziness of the past few weeks buying a house, renovating it, packing up our condo, moving into our new house, and getting ready for this trip, we have at least a tiny bit of energy left to be excited to meet our daughter in just a few days.  We remember not that long ago when it seemed like this would never come.  And, here it is.

Tonight at my parent's house for dinner (probably our last spaghetti and meatballs for awhile...), the five of us were sitting around the table and my mom gestured to the empty chair.  She said, "Isn't it amazing?  The next time we are all here at this table having dinner, little Emmie will be sitting right there."  It really hit me then.  Emmie's coming!

Back to packing...

My 4 yr old says every dinner "who's missing...oh's my sista cause she's still in Chinas!". Safe travels!
