Sorry Folks....More Tomorrow

I would love to post more about today but just cannot keep my eyes open. Yesterday's travel challenges led to a short 2 hour sleep, followed by a busy, emotional day. I've sat here for the past 15 mins trying to write a post and have fallen asleep more times that I can count. I'll share details and more Hannah pics and videos! tomorrow.

Ok....a couple more to tide you over! You twisted my arm!! :o)

  11. I almost stayed up last night to see pictures, but then I realized it would be almost morning by the time you got back and got photos up. Then, with all the morning kid crazy in my house, I forgot to check when I got up. I was sitting in the pharmacy drive-thru when I remembered and could hardly drive the speed limit home to see...WORTH THE WAIT! Oh, man, is she adorable! LOVE seeing you holding her! That close-up is gorgeous. Can't wait to see more, but I know that exhaustion. Rest! We'll all be here waiting!

  38. Catherine,

    Hannah looks so content with you! She is a smart girl, you could just see her analyzing the situation and thinking, yes, this is perfect! : )
    Looks like the same benches in the Changsha civil affairs office when we were there in 2006! Or maybe all the govt offices have those style benches! LOL.
