Tuesday, December 8

Hello All!!

Brenna and I made it to the US very uneventfully :0)

Brenna did great on the plane - her only complaint was when the announcements interrupted the TV programs (she loved the headphones from the plane and wore them for the whole trip - I was impressed when she willingly gave them back at the end of the journey). She took a good nap on the plane and did well with the bathrooms (although I don't know that she is going to be willing to use the public potties here in the US after last August - cross your fingers for us there!). We didn't even get her ipod videos out - we watched G-Force, Up (which was much better for her age and she liked all the ballons way more - and the talking dog), and other available cartoons. Brenna also played with her stickers that I had stashed away - what a good idea for the trip with plain paper. The flight attendent even said how well she did on the trip :-) I think I was more impatient to get to our final destination then Brenna was!! We have found that Mentos (the fruit ones) are great for ear popping candy on the plane (we found this out on our trip to London) - Brenna loves them and we went through lots, lol. I was surprised she wasn't interested in the Pez on the plane - just the mentos, lol!!

Well, I think that is it so far - we woke up early today (before 5), so hopefully, we will get on a better schedule soon!
Take Care!
