= HAPPY KIDS!

One of our dreams will come true! Its booked and confirmed... WE ARE GOING TO CHINA! WOOHOO! Sadly, As you can see, there is no pic of our new addition. A few of our friend's have said, this is the test run!!! We're taking the kids on our annual family holiday ~ using frequent flyers and some tickets we'd won in May - it'll actually be cheaper than our Queensland holiday this year!


This is the BEST Christmas present I could ask for! Except of course, seeing our daughter! T reckon's we should (quote) "Just ring them and tell them we'll be over there, maybe they'll get it all ready for us?" I laughed, and said "Yeah right, if that was the case - everyone would be doing that?!!!!" If only we were a Movie Star or Pop Star?!!!

You're going to have the time of your LIFE! But I forgot to tell you, while at Lucy's DON'T order the pasta, just trust me on this one. Burger & fries was the way most people went. Their pasta would've made my Nonna roll over in her grave. HAVE SO MUCH FUN & BE SURE TO GET LOTS OF CLOSSIONE ORNAMENTS FOR YOUR NEW LITTLE ONE TO ADD TO THE TREE NEXT CHRISTMAS! =)

I think that's awesome. That way you can focus the adoption trip on the baby. Can't wait to read all the details!

Sounds fabulous!! I hope that you all have a great time. Why don't you "ring" them anyway? I don't think that the rest of us have even tried, because we knew we weren't even close to being a movie or pop star. But you are going anyway and maybe you can burn a new path....:-) Okay, I will stop dreamin'. We are ready to go through the process again and I really dread the wait time from the beginning.
Enjoy!! We loved visiting China!!

Good for you! Can't wait to read all about it! I'm thinking about trying to go over to China and volunteer in an orphanage for a couple of weeks this next year. We have been studying Mandarin for months now and I want to go somewhere and use it! Plus, all this sitting around and waiting is about to do me in...

SO COOL! Yes, I am yelling! =) Wouldn't it be swell to say, "Well, I'll be in the neighborhood and would like to pick up my little Mini..." Ahh, to dream... =) Looking forward to the vacation blog posts!
