Going Crazy Packing and Preparing

I'm so sorry I have been gone from blogging for so long but we have so much going on here. Besides our regular crazy busy life, trying to pack, prepare and arrange child care for 15 days has been taking all my extra time.

We are set to leave this Wednesday for China. I can hardly wait. There has been one change. We are now staying one extra day and coming home on Chinese New Year Day- February 3. We made the change because the busiest travel day of the year in China is Chinese New Years Eve which is the day we had planned on leaving-- BUT-- we could not get train tickets to Hong Kong (we got cheaper tickets to fly out of Hong Kong which is a 2 hour train ride from Guangzhou) because they were sold out because of the high travel demand of that day. So, we decided to leave one day later- which means we get to celebrate CNY in Guangzhou which is a once in a lifetime experience which we are thrilled about-- and we now get to fly our of Guangzhou instead. It's a much better plan than the Hong Kong thing and it was less than $100 total to make the change.

Finley at about 2 years old-- so cute

Oh yes, and if you are wondering if I actually have other children since you have not seen pictures of them forever-- yes I do but I just have not had time to take pictures but I will try to post some new pics of the kids very soon so you all can remember what they look like -- lol!!!
