OK - I don't seem to have it in me to figure out what's wrong with the pictures, but didn't want to waste anymore time getting them posted. So, these are out of order, and I can't figure out how to get a few of the pictures rotated (it's not rocket science, I know). Anyway, here's an out of order snapshot of our visit with the Lewises.
That night also turned out to be Olivia's first sleep-over at someone else's house. Julia invited her to watch the Hannah Montana movie and spend the night. Olivia was super-excited! It was great from start to finish (which included waffles for breakfast - topped with ICE CREAM!).
Marina and me with the girls before the Hannah Montana 3-D movie started.
McIver - so NOT into the HM movie that he was more interested in putting on a play with a baby doll and a (somewhat creepy) toy squirrel.
Olivia and Julia hugging when we first arrived. They were so excited to see each other (in their Hannah Montana gear!).
Here they are with their 3-D glasses waiting for the show to start (with artwork and everything!).
Olivia and Julia are friends from WAY back. They have known each other since they were about 6 weeks old. Their birthdays are one day apart; Marina and I were next door to each other in the hospital but had not yet met. We met at our first playgroup about 6 weeks later. Then, again, at a different playgroup. So, we saw each other twice a week for a good portion of the girls' infancies. Marina was also in the Bible Study group that I loved so much in Greenville. Olivia and Julia shared their first three birthday parties when we lived in Greenville.
