So it started out with a 7 mile run. Actually my least favorite part of the day, but definitely and accomplishment I was proud to cross off my list.
Next stop. . . Casa Mañana for a presentation of The Night Before Christmas. It was pretty awesome! Juliana slept the through act but loved the second. And Liv was mesmerized the whole time. I tried to take a picture of them once Juliana got into it, but she turned to look as soon as she saw the flash.
This was Jingle the Elf. This was Olivia's favorite Character!
Then after the show it was lunch at Chuy's. Olivia had a hot mic today and had me laughing all day. She had to go to the restroom after lunch for a "sit down" if you know what I mean. So there we are, squeezed into a stall, when someone occupies the stall next to ours. Yes, I have to go into the stall with her or she gets scared. Also she likes to have really deep conversations in these stalls. So said person next door apparently had a little gas. So the first one got out and Liv started to quietly laugh. As I'm pantomiming to her not to do that and that it's rude, the woman next door lets it rip and now I can't contain myself. Both Olivia and I, squeezed into a tiny stall and only a few inches away from the guilty party, start laughing uncontrollably. I couldn't even look at Olivia with out going into hysterics again. I know it was wrong, and that the poor lady was probably mortified, but I couldn't hold back. I was so embarrassed. So we were forced to wait in the stall until she got out for fear of an awkward confrontation.
After that little "situation" we went for a walk for some fresh air. And what we got were smiles and giggles.

You would think the day would be over, but you would be wrong! From here, we went to be in the Arlington Parade of Lights. Juliana has had her AFO's made at Pediatric Orthotics and Prosthetics by Ms. Suzanne O'Connor for about 3 years now. She has become a friend to us all and has been a big supporter at our Girl Power events. So we were more than excited when she asked us to join them on their float in the Arlington Parade of Lights. We decided to go with a Mouse Ears theme.
