Were Going To China/ Halloween/ Allie 3rd B-Day Party!

Hello everyone!! I hope this blog post finds everyone happy & healthy! We have had alot going on the last few weeks. Last weekend was Halloween, Allie had two of her friends over to spend
the night, eat dinner and we went out Trick O Treating. What we noticed was there was not too many families opening their doors for candy this year. It's very sad how hard this economy has been hit. But they still managed to get alot of stash. The next morning the girls all woke up, I fixed them pancakes, they played and we got ready to head over to "As You Wish"'s a pottery place where the kids could pick out a piece of pottery and paint it. Allie had about 15 kids attend her birthday party, they had cupcakes and goodie bags. I think they all had a good time. After the party we took Allie and Grandma to the Cracker Barell for dinner. Allie loves this place..... We had to have Allie's party early this year as her birthday is close to Thanksgiving. And we knew we would be traveling around her birthday. Fast foward to Thursday 11/5/09 It was
about 8:00pm, I got on the computer and saw their was a message from my amazing China Coordinator. " It said that our TRAVEL APPROVAL LEFT CHINA AND WOULD BE AT OUR AGENCY ON MONDAY 11/09/09." I called and spoke with Sue Sorrels and she has placed our seats on hold. We asked for a consulate appointment of 12/15/09. Yesterday I recieved another email with our Tentative dates. We will leave 12/03/09 and will return on 12/19/09 same exact day of the month we returned with Allie. I will try and post on this blog from China but I'm not sure it will work. So I will have another website running as a back up and will put a link up on this blog.
