We made it and everyone is still in one piece!!! Actually, the trip went very smoothly. The airports were great, so many kind people offered help, and the kids behaved way beyond what I expected. I might even go as far to say that they were pretty close to little angles. (minus one or two incidents :)
So thank you for all your well wishes, and good luck's. They were so appreciated and apparently they worked as well :)
Wishing you all a Happy Quilting Day from my new home in Utah!!!
