Arrived in Beijing

We Made It!

Thank you for the prayers for safe and smooth travel.  We had a great day of flying.  We are now in Beijing and dying to go to sleep.  We are forcing ourselves to stay up until 7 or 8 PM here in order to hopefully sleep all night and wake up rested tomorrow.  We head to Tienneman (sp?) Square and the Great Wall at 7 30 AM.  Our flight to Changsha leaves at 4 PM and we should arrive at 7 PM Sunday evening CHina time.  We are 13 hours ahead of you back home. 

Enjoy the pictures.  There are many decorations up for CNY, and they are beautiful.  The cherry tree is in the lobby of our hotel and has the red "Good Luck" envelopes decorating it.  Chinese lanterns are hung throughout the city.  It's very pretty, but the weather is very cold!

Glad you made if safely. We will be praying for you and for sweet LG. Specifically praying for her heart as she prepares to allow you to enter it. We can't wait to welcome you all home in a few weeks. I am sure Lilly will have a pile of pictures for you, she was explaining to everyone at school how you had gone to China to bring home her new Jie Jie :)
