Any bets on that?


  1. Can you go to the airport and pick it up? I hate when weather affects flights. Sorry mom!

  2. And this is why we all need to live somewhere warm. Flights are never cancelled in the summer time. Winter ruins everything! :)

  3. I bet they will deliver your bag late Sunday night and that you will see it Monday morning! :)

  4. I am so sorry you and your bag are not together! that haptend to us when we were comming home from Oregon after Christmas the year Emily turned one! we got into PHX and found out our bags were not put on the plan in PDX, we had them fly our bags to Tucson, and then Brad went and pick them up.
    Yes and you do need to move some where warm, Az is nice in the winter time! love how the girls can go out and play and ride bikes now! in the summer it's way to hot in the summer.
