We're off to Guangzhou!!

Well, we're off to the last leg of our trip! We look forward to to the food, shopping, & warmer climate. It's supposed to be in the 70's & 80 while we're there. Claire is still doing great & Lance right now is re-packing so we won't have to pay as much in penalties as we did on the trip over. (I have a huge overpacking problem) Please keep us in your prayers as we fly & travel a lot today. We will stay in Guangzhou until Wednesday. Then it's back home for that dreaded trip.

This is a foot picture of all the babies in our little travel group here in Changsha. The picture didn't go exactly as planned. We'll try again in a couple of days!
Claire right before bedtime! She loves playing on our bed until her bedtime, then it's to the crib she goes. It's so cute to see her in her crib sucking her thumb intil she falls asleep.
I'll post in a day or so as soon as I can. Also, thanks to everyone for all the posts, e-mails, & words of encouragement. We can't wait to see you all upon our return & see precious Claire!

PS....Dear Jesse, We can't wait to see you next week! Please continue to feel better & do great for Nana & Grandma! Have a great Spring Break! We all love you so much! Take good care of Braxton or us too!

Love, Mom, Dad, & Claire!!

The footies look beautiful to me. Amery and Courtney brought Noel to the office yesterday and commented that Noel's big tootsie has just become bigger than the other ones. Evidently this is an on-going process.

Nothing wrong with that picture in our book!

love - Minna

Hi Lance, Gretchen and Claire. I just love that smiling, happy face Claire has when she is enjoying playing on your big bed. Looking at her first pictures and the latest ones, you can just see her blossoming - just like the flowers here in Memphis. Am glad you found some favorite foods (finally) and look forward to seeing you all soon. lc
