Yes we did!

Last night Evie sat with a map detailing the electoral votes of each state. As we watched results scroll across the bottom of our TV screen she would find the state and call out how many electoral votes they had. She kept a running total. When Ohio was called for Obama we started to cheer, by the time California was called I was crying and Evie was literally jumping up and down. She fell asleep in my arms as Scott and I held hands and just stared, so grateful that the future WILL be different.

Evie set up those of her stuffed animals that were eligible to vote (they had been mine or Scott's). They watched with us. This morning they are still sitting there, waiting for Evie to wake up. The future is different for everyone.
