Greetings From The Future!

Well we are technically in the future. It is Saturday night 7:00pm
and we are in Seoul waiting for our flight to Saigon. Transfers have been quick in DEN and SFO. Flights have been great minus a bad CPU in the plane from DEN. We had a small issue at STL this morning with our reservations. United could not find out tickets (we were e-ticket) but after 30 minutes they found them! This pictire is us after we landed here at Incheon. A lovely 12 hour 32 minute flight! We watched every movie, played some games on the in seat system, had two nice meals. Hoping that the ICN-SGN flight is smooth sailing. We should arrive around midnight. Looks like a light load so we might have our own plane :-). We are looking forward to getting to the hotel and crashing. We did sleep about 3 hours across the Pacific. It was just really strange that we TOTALLY missed Friday night!! It did not even happen for us!!!! We left SFO at noon 12/5 and it was light all the way across the Pacific. The sun set as we touched down in South Korea. We would like to wish early HAPPY BIRTHDAY'S to GRANDAD SMITH and CAROLINE a.k.a. "The Godmotha' ". We will post again tomorrow!! Hey Sophie! Guess what??? We are only a 5 hour flight from being right near you!!!

Dearest Sophie, I'm tired. You are so worth the 4 flights which equal to 36 hrs. of traveling. I'm surprised your Pop hasn't punched me yet for being so naggy on the 12 1/2 hr. flight from San Fran. to Seoul. By the way, you get the middle seat on the way back. Love you so much little precious. Looking forward to many sleepless nights! xoxo from Korea

There is nothing like losing a day...on the way home you get to live one twice. It is quite strange :)

XXXOOO
Hearing your voice at every stop, Hen is so reassuring to your 'ole Momma.
I can't imagine what you and T are experiencing, but as a mother I know how you are feeling - minus the deprivation of sleep. Every emotion you have ever had are all bundled up as you are headed to Sophie. YOUR future is awaiting and it will be a fabulous one.

Yes [ ] No [ ] Please and thanks. :) I hope you are doing well and the jet lag isn't too horrible. Tell Sophie I said hello, she'll know me because everyone knows me. (The earth is my Cheers cause I'm kinda a big deal) I love you both and I'm so beyond excited for you both!! Can't wait till your home!!! ---- Nikki

You do look exhausted! I know the feeling oh too well... You will be feeling no pain as soon as you see her though. I know I got little pricklies all over my body and I almost burst into tears when I caught my first glimpse of my daughter Bronte. It practically took my breath away. The moment is SO REAL.

God Bless you guys and can't wait to hear more and see pics! I've quietly been following your story and have been excited for you for so long.
