So here goes the story -- We started fairly normally, but I took my first call of the day from the parking lot of E's school while Brent went to get coffee. Some calls have to happen. Then we headed inside for E's very first Christmas program. (Can see some video of that here).

We made a mad rush over to chick-fil-a with Bill to get dinner and despite our best efforts missed a minute or two of the jazz performance. This makes me very sad, probably sadder than her, but her eyes were "randomly watering" during the show. Luckily, they always perform the song twice so we saw the entire thing in the encore. She seemed a bit less pulled together than in ballet, but that may have been many things. We dropped of small gifts for her dance teachers and headed home to fall in a pile.
This was a very intense day from a logistics perspective and kind of a rough day at work for me. I'll admit M's watery eyes were not the only ones before this day was done, but I'm glad to have experienced all of it and to be on the other side. Of course Day 17 featured more parties and fun, but definitely less than this big day!
