So we're heading to the states, our first time back since we brought Sky home in May of 2011. I found a great deal back in August, so we already have our plane tickets. We'll be spending a few days in Honolulu playing tourist, since we've never had a chance to do that, and then we'll be in the midwest for 4 weeks over Christmas and New Years. On the way back, we're stopping in Majuro for four days to visit the kid's birth families. We're hoping to see as much of our family as we can and to have a good time while we're at it.
I'm already thinking about what I'm going to ship ahead of us- we don't really need cold weather clothes here, I'm going to mail most of our clothes home so that we don't have to take them as luggage on the airplane. Poor Sky- she hates wearing pants! She's going to be crushed when she realizes that she has to wear them every day. Luckily, she has a wonderful fairy godmother who bought her some winter dresses that she's already in love with. Sky tried on one of the coats we'll be sending ahead for her to wear:
Since it's pink with flowers, it got approved.
This is Sky's Christmas dress and another winter dress I bought on Zulily for her. She begs to wear them but I'm making her wait (such a mean mommy!)
