(Copied from Saturday, Nov. 13th, 2010) Welcome!
Just a quick first post to welcome you on our journey to China where we will add a precious Lyric to our family of 5!
We will be having a memorable Thanksgiving this year as that is the day we leave to get our daughter. I'll have to plan some entertaining, fun things to do because we're spending 8 hours in the Chicago airport!
The kids wanted to know if they will get extra food on the airplane - doesn't everyone stuff themselves (just like the turkey!) on Thanksgiving Day? Hmm... I wonder if the on-board meal will include turkey, stuffing and cranberries? What the kids don't quite realize yet is that we aren't on the plane to Beijing until about 8:00 at night, so their Turkey dinner would have to be in the airport - maybe I can pack some cans of canned cranberries and a can opener in my carry-on...
