The last few days have been so, so crazy busy with work and church and preparing for our trip...and just relishing the fact that Brecken will be in our arms in just a few short days.

We have been busy checking flights and trying to make our travel lists and everything. On Wednesday we called on of the airlines and was told that a ticket to Addis would be 12,000.00 (yes, you are reading that correctly)...I remembered all the families who have said such wonderful things about Susan Parr Travel and I decided to call them to reserve our flight. They have been amazing so far. We leave in two weeks! There was no way that I thought we would be leaving so very, very soon.

Here is another picture of our sweet Brecken.

Please, please tell me that Susan Parr Travel got you a better price than $12,000! Oh my, we really need to start saving.

Can't wait to see the pictures of you with Brecken in Addis!

what a beautiful picture! that is so exciting for you to have a travel date set!! I sure hope that you got a better price than $12,000! That scares me...we need to reeeaaallly start saving if that's the case...but I'm hoping that it's less here in Canada...I thought I looked it up a few weeks ago and it was around $7,000...that sounded really I'm starting to think that it wasn't all that bad!
What a wonderful way to end off 2008...a trip to Ethiopia for your beautiful darling daughter!!

Susan Parr has been amazing to work with!!! I am glad you are having a good experience, too.
We will be in Ethiopia on January 5th. Will you be traveling during that time as well? Perhaps we will get to meet you in Ethiopia!!!
Good luck with all the preparations!

HOLY COW! Thats rediculous!! I'm planning on going end of January and I have a ticket on hold with a price tag of just over $1500. Hopefully Susan Parr got you a better rate then $12K!

Breckon is absolutely gorgeous!

So, you will be in Ethiopia for their Christmas? How fun! Sad we'll just be missing you in ET.

We're wondering if you might be our roomies at the Ayat house. Could you let us know if that is where you are staying. We leave just short of 3 weeks from now. You can email us at
