We're in Almaty-- and we are tired!

Hello, all.. We made it. We arrived just about 2am last night after a long (long!) series of flights.. On the last flight we hit some significant turbulence so by the time we got to Almaty we were ready to be off the plane.
No kids yet, but that is okay since we are still getting our bearings (Mom slept about 4 hours this afternoon). The kids arrive tomorrow at 9am, and we were just joking that this should be our big night, the last night of freedom-- but nobody can muster any energy to do anything about it! Just about all of the families have arrived-- the last 2 couples arrive some time tonight.
That's it for now-- new pics of Noelle tomorrow (yay!)

Glad to hear that you've arrived in Almaty safe and sound (although turbulence can rattle you in more ways than one). Can't wait to see photos of your reunion—especially seeing your mom's expression when she meets her granddaughter for the first time. Very cool.

It is too bad you don't have someone taking pictures of you all. Make sure Mom gets some good ones even though I know she will want to smother Noelle with kisses. See you soon!

Glad you made it safely! We will be watching out for those new pics of Noelle!
