I can't believe how much stuff it takes to be gone for 5 days with only two children. And, with the airlines charging for baggage we are being creative in our packing. Mr. Finn scrounged up an army duffle bag in which we will fit clothing for 4 and two booster seats while maintaining the entire weight under 40 pounds to keep the airline happy. Or, maybe that is us happy because we don't have to pay for a second bag which is more expensive than the first one. YIKES! AIRLINES!
At least it will be the trip of a lifetime for the children. They are so anxious to go and see Grandma Lois and Great Grandma Rose. I'm sure they will be terribly spoiled, which is great for starting off the holiday season.
