Flights booked!

As of early this evening, we have flights booked to and from China.  And, yes, we are all going.  In order to make that possible, we have some, well... interesting flights scheduled.  The whole trip to China is going to take close to 30 hours, with 2 plane changes, nearly 9 hours in layovers, and an arrival time of almost midnight in Beijing.  Sounds like an adventure, huh?!  I'm just thrilled that we can all go together to meet our little Saidie. 

We have two more squares for Saidie's quilt, too.
  #35: This lovely plaid square and sweet wish are from Uncle Mike.

#36 Our friends Steve and Diana, and their kiddos Andrea, Sean, Talia, and Joel contributed this beautiful sparkly fabric.  I've always loved the Bible passage on their wish.

I'm so excited for you! The 30-hour trip sounds miserable, but think of the precious gift you have waiting for you at the end of that time. Praising God for his many blessings and praying for a safe trip!
