Day 14: Dec 25, Christmas Day

By crossing the International Date Line on our way home, we ended up with a 37 hour day, and arrive home Christmas night. Here, Julia waits in front of our United flight that will take us from Beijing to Chicago.

By the time we reached home, we were all exhausted, and I didn't get pictures of the 5 kids together for the first time. I was too busy hugging and kissing on all 5 of my kiddos. We didn't get home until after 11pm, and after unloading the car and showing Julia the house, we were up until after 3am.
None of us are really back on a good sleep schedule yet, but the kids are a lot closer than Scott and me. Jet lag is much worse coming home than going on the trip. Oh well.
As of today, Dec 30, all 5 kids are getting along. Of course we have rivalries and territory issues, but all in all, all 7 of us are adjusting.
Next time, I promise a picture of all 5 kiddos together.
