We are home in Texas!

We made safe and sound... and thanks for the prayers we had a great trip. Our flight to Moscow, Russia was 11 hours and started out a little rocky with Pierce having to wake up at 11:30pm to head to the airport. He was not to happy to sit in his chair at the beginning of the flight, we were stuck in the last row of the plane, there were people in front of us (they said the row in front of us was empty), the plane was packed and everyone was ready to sleep... except for Pierce. 5 hours into the flight Pierce finally fell asleep (no drugs) for 3 hours. We arrived in Russia during the day and it was snowing... the first snow that Pierce has ever seen... man was it cold... we were wearing pants and flip flops and Pierce was in his pjs with short sleeves and crocks... are we good or what.

Our second leg on Singapore Air left on time (an hour lay over) and we headed to Texas on a 14 hour journey. It was AWESOME. Pierce was AWESOME. The plane only had 70 people on it and we could sit anywhere we liked. We got bulk head seats and had the row behind us to lay down. Pierce slept on and off in 2-3 hour increments, 3 times and when he was a wake he was happy; watching movies, walking the aisles, flirting the airline staff and playing with mommy and daddy.

We are so glad to be here now and headed to bed...we should be on track (time zone wise) tomorrow morning.... we all stayed up to go to be on a normal Texas time. Pierce is such a trooper and we are so proud of him... thanks for all your emails and calls today and most of all the prayers.

See you soon.
