we are here...

after 27 hours door to door traveling time, 20+ hours on 2 planes, 10 dirty diapers, a barely sleeping noah, we arrived in hong kong. oy what a trip that was. but noah was a trooper. he probably wasn't happy sitting on our laps the entire time but we made it. all during the trip, noah decided that he wanted only to sleep when he was lying on top of his momma - he hasn't done that since he was 3 months old and i can honestly say i have missed that so much (so hey, i will take the baby hugging and sleeping whenever i can get it!)

we have taken a lot of pictures already. my grandma loves him and my cousin's baby girl too! she is really having a hard time getting her words out after her stroke earlier this year but the photos we took are priceless. you can see when she is holding her great grandbabies - her eyes light up and have a sparkle to them that transcends even the words.

my boys are asleep right now - it is too sweet - they are hugging each other and snoring together (it is 6 am here right now).

i even have had a chance to work on my traveling scrapbook journal - capturing what we have done each day (so far a lot of sleeping - LOL) but it will be something we can read and look back at together in coming years.

we want to wish you all a very happy holidays. more soon. if i can figure out this downloading thing for the laptop, we will post some pictures soon.

PS. i have seen our new ribbons in real life now and they are AWESOME! i might steal a couple of pieces to use in my journal!
