Preparing for the trip - packing

We are permitted to have 2 carry-ons and 2 luggage each for our trip to the other side of the planet. We actually won't need all of that space for our own clothes since I am an awesome packer (Jacques if you are reading this, skip the next bit because Anne doesn't want you to know that I am a woman who can pack for a 5 day trip, to a warm destination, with different outfits for each day, 2 pairs of shoes, hot iron and necessary toilettries and clothes options to spare into just one carry-on and a large purse!) so we will pack empty luggage space with items we can give to people in Vietnam such as kids clothes, toothbrushes and toothpaste ( of course), Hallowe'en candy, gifts, meds etc...

Malcolm actually collected 162 Webkinz toys from kids at his school to deliver to an orphanage in Vietnam. We were able to get them all in to one suitcase but we were told we had better split them up so that customs doesn't think we are planning to open a store. Hopefully this whole plan doesn't blow up in my face at customs......I'll keep you posted.
