We thought the whole experience couldn't be topped until we went the the JDRF BOO AWARDS today at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. What a great awards show and get together these wonderful ladies put together. When we arrived at the hotel we went straight up the escalator to the Texas Room where we found our name badges and got ready to go inside. As we were having our names checked off the list- one of the ladies noticed Kaci had a little friend crawling on her shoulder- it was a ladybug! (for those of you who have read my August 3rd entry- you know how special this was to us!) WOW! What are the chances? I wanted to bring it home with us to be our pet- but after crawling on my finger for just a second it decided to fly up to the ceiling. I think it's job was done- it had brought Kaci good luck!!
We found a table, got some snacks and a drink and the awards began!
Kaci was called to the stage with all of the other children who have Type 1 Diabetes and was given a very special "giving band" bracelet! (Hmmmm....notice the poster on the podium?? It sure does look familiar!)
Bailey and Clint had lots of fun watching the big screen tv together.
On our way out- we had to stop and check out these cool Ginger bread houses. There was one made to look like the UT tower and one to look like the hotel.
