Day 9,999?

This won't be a long post because there's not much to report except that we survived another day. We did a little souvenir shopping this morning and sightseeing with our guide this afternoon. It's below freezing here so neither activity was particularly pleasant. The highlight of the day was hot chocolate at McDonalds. Speaking of McDonald's, I hadn't eaten at one in over a year before this trip. Now we've had it almost every day. Bleh!
We are all tired and growing weary. We are very excited about flying to Guangzhou tomorrow night. There are many Americans there, including one girl from my coffee group. And the hotel is nicer, there are more food choices, and best of all it's one step closer to home. Hallelujah to that!
Mollie did well today. She has quite a temper when she doesn't get her way! But she's usually pretty easy and happy.
Tomorrow we'll get her official adoption papers and her passport, then head to the airport at 3:30. It will be a late night so I probably won't post.
I'll leave you with a couple of pics. We wore the Bama shirts to the orphanage yesterday, and the girls wore their panda shirts today. We might be worn out, but at least we look cute! ;-)
