We are HOME!

Well, we have actually been home almost 2 days now but I am just now able to form semi-coherent sentences.....we are TIRED!

Our trip home was as good as any two-day trip can be. We left Guangzhou on Thursday evening by high-speed train to Hong Kong and then took a taxi to the airport hotel where we were for about 8 hours before flying out. Ellie was an absolute trooper throughout our travel but did throw up on our flight from Tokyo to Newark, then again all over both of us in the Newark airport.......poor baby! She slept through our
 final flight after a little Dramamine and we were vomit free....yay!

We were met at the aiport by three of the cutest and most excited boys ever! Oh seeing these faces was just amazing to me after 2 weeks away. 

So how are we really doing?  We are actually doing great, much better than I thought and if I could just get some sleep we would be doing awesome.  As great as seeing my family at the airport was, my favorite moments have been after the airport.  Watching all 4 of my children at the same table eating breakfast, seeing how the boys just follow Ellie around doting on her, seeing Ellie open up, all priceless. 

I will post more on the days of our trip after my laptop died but for now we are home and happy.
