There's no place like home!

We made it! 
After 30 plus hours of riding on trains, buses, taxi's, and planes...
we are HOME!!!!
HOME SWEET SWEET SWEET HOME!
 
It was a L-O-N-G trip, but Addy-Kate was a trooper!
She did extremely well considering, and slept most of the ride home.
Bless her heart, I think the last two and a half weeks just wore her flat OUT!!!

 These four couldn't wait to meet their new sissy!
 
And we had quite the welcoming committee waiting for us when we got off the plane!
My heart is full!!!
Hugging BOTH my sweet girls...at the same time;)
These precious boys couldn't wait to get their hands on this girl;)
And KK and Al were both super excited to meet their newest niece!
Oh AK...you are ONE loved little girl!!!!!!!
  Our first family photo!!!
I love this picture. 
AK must be thinking..."what in the world have I gotten myself into";)
Then she realized she was strapped in...
She wasn't too thrilled about it either. 
In China, children do not ride in car seats, so this may take a little getting used too!!!
The kids couldn't wait to show her around the house...
and eagerly shared with her their favorite toys;)
 WELCOME HOME SWEET BABY GIRL! 
WE ARE SO GLAD THAT YOU ARE FINALLY HERE!!!!
