Five days away!

We leave in just a few days . . . let me see, how many is it? Oh, yes! Five! In exactly five days at this time we'll be on our way to O'Hare.

Today is my last day to work before taking my 16-week leave. I've never taken more than a couple weeks off at a time in my entire working life, so it's exciting as well as terrifying! Fortunately, I have wonderful support from all the folks there and don't have to worry about anything . . . except motherhood!

Lance is off today for the holiday, but he is working one more day as well. He goes in Monday to tie up some loose ends.

Tomorrow we'll get the kids' help putting up our tree and other Christmas decorations so that it'll all be ready when we get home with Ting Ting.

Monday and Tuesday I'll be running a few errands and putting everything in suitcases. Wish me luck!

We are counting down with you. Please don't forget to take your camera!

Get plenty of rest now, you'll soon have a little one to keep you up at night. And you'll love every minute. What a great Christmas gift you will be receiving! And little Rachel just won the Lottery of a Lifetime: a family.
