Mommy & Pop.... I'm Ready For The United States!

We are set to come to America! We have Sophie's Visa which clears us to come home. But no flights have room to bring us all home due to the large number of folks flying for Christmas. We will just enjoy our last days here in Viet Nam. Visa interview took a whole minute. It was nice to be in the US again (embassy soil)!
The Duckers came over for dinner and after we got back to the hotel we hit the fresh market down the street for veggies, made Bruschetta, pesto pasta and noodles with butter for the girls. We are still having fun as I type. Tricia and Jackie are headed for well deserved massages while the Fathers hit the streets of Ha Noi again with the girls to eat some local dishes. We will share a nice whole duck which smell fantastic while they cook. Local shops have big fans to blow the wonderful aroma into the street attracting people to stop in and eat. Hoping Sophie does not have one of her nuclear meltdowns with Pop tomorrow. Best to everyone following for a great day!

What a celebration it will be when the three of you land in St Louis. Everyone is so excited that the three of you will finally be home. Puck, Peaches, and Spicy are anxiously awaiting you arrival as well. They really are missing you. Love you and can't wait to see you. Hugs and kisses to all of you.

Sounds like you guys are having fun! You'll be home soon to celebrate the best Christmas of your lives! I remember Cathy and I were anxious to get home, but a little sad we were leaving Vietnam. We liked the fact that we were there with no worries about what was going on back home, no cell phones, house cleaning, work problems, etc. Just hanging out with our daughter, doing fun things, and eating out! Enjoy your last few days! T, C, and E

So relieved that all the LEGAL red tape, etc. is out of the picture.
Sophie's Immigrant Visa and pic is a sight for sore eyes. Welcome to the land of the free and the home of the brave, Miss Belz.

Lots of people love you and will be thrilled to see you in person as well as your Mommy and Poppa.

Oh the places you will go, Sophie :)
