Little Big Headed Baby is Coming Home!

Dear Carli & Ava -

Hey there!  It's me, Little Big Headed Baby!  You won't guess what I did today...I traveled all day and all night long!  I am so ready to be home.  I'm super excited to see you again.  You are going to love what I bought you from Japan.  It is awesome!

I forgot yesterday to show you how big the Dr. Pepper cans were in Okinawa, Japan.  They were even taller than I was!  Can you believe it?

 We got up early Tuesday morning at 6 am to get ready to come home.  Did you know when it was 6 am here in Japan, it was still Monday afternoon there in Texas?  We got up and got all our treasures and things packed up.  Then we went downstairs for breakfast.  The breakfasts here are really different.  They serve salad, french fries and would you believe they had ice cream too?!  Grammy and Daddy had ice cream every morning for breakfast! 

 The hotel we stayed at use to be an American hotel that was abandoned.  Do you know that abandoned means that the ppl just left it.  They didn't stay and take care of it, so it fell apart.  The ppl that live in Okinawa would say that it was haunted with ghosts!  Then about 10 years ago, our business partners bought it and fixed it up very nicely.  Maybe Momma will post more pictures of the hotel later for you to see.  My favorite part of the hotel was the hallway to our room...can you see me?

 We got packed and checked out of our hotel.  It was an hour car ride to the airport.  We were very glad our new friends Silvia and another very pretty lady (I cannot remember her name :( ) came inside the airport with us.  They helped us get through check in and showed us to security.  Without them, we might have been a little late! 

Goodbye Okinawa!!

It took us 2.5 hrs to get to the Tokyo airport.  Tokyo is still in Japan.  This airport was really big!  We did a little more shopping and do you know what we had for lunch?  McDonalds!!  Momma said she does not like McDonalds but that it tasted so good!  :)  They are already getting ready for Christmas here in Japan.  I don't think they celebrate Thanksgiving like we do.  Maybe you should ask your teachers as school why we celebrate Thanksgiving and the Japanese don't.

Before we went through security to go find our airplane we found a Starbucks.  We have Starbucks in Texas too.  This Starbucks had a chocolate chip scone, which was like a big chocolate chip cookie.  Momma and Daddy shared some of their hot chocolate with me too!

Pa stopped and gave all his Japanese money to the bank and they gave him American money back.  The Japanese money is called the yen.  He had 3114 yen and they gave him about $30 in American money back.  He kept 32 yen.  You should ask Grammy to show you what Japanese money looks like.

After we had lunch, shopped, had a snack and stopped at the bank we went through security and then through customs.  Customs is where they make sure you aren't bringing things out of Japan that you aren't suppose to.  Like if you tried to sneak a puppy dog out of Japan and didn't tell them at customs, they would be really mad at you!  We didn't have a puppy dog so we went right on through.  We got to go to the Admiral's Lounge again which is a very nice waiting room.  Momma worked on her work emails, Daddy caught up on his work too.  Pa took a nap and Grammy  and I played a game on her Kindle. 

Our plane will to take us home in two more hours.  It will take us 12 hrs to get to Dallas.  That means when you wake up we will be on a really big airplane.  And we will still be on the airplane when you are eating lunch. Momma promised we will call you as soon as we got off the airplane to let you know we got back to Texas safe and will be home soon!

I hope you have a great, awesome day at with Naggy and Pappy today!  I am so excited to see you really, really soon!

Love Always,

Little Big Headed Baby
