Nurse Julie

Well, what a fun Saturday. I spent today with my two sickies. Nick is now sick with the tummy flu (I'm hoping it is just the 24 hour kind I had last weekend) and Madeline is still coughing. We have another dr.'s appointment for Monday morning if she is not better. But in the middle of her sickness she has learned to clap her hands. She is just clapping and clapping now. I will hopefully catch some video tomorrow and a few pictures. No, I still haven't figured out how to use the new video camera and get the videos on the blog but Nick has promised that when he makes his miracle recover he will teach me. He then went on to say something about not giving me a fish but teaching me to fish. :) I hope that our home will be germ free by the time company starts arriving!

Sick Little One

Well...we just returned for another trip to the Doctor. Madeline still has a runny nose, yucky cough, and just sounds horrible. The doctor gave us a stronger perscription, listened to her breathe, and checked out her ears. He said that if she is not better by Friday to come on back before the weekend. The good news is that it isn't in her lungs. So let's just pray all this mucus will just dry up! On the up side Madeline is really trying to learn to crawl. She is rocking back and forth and scooting backwards. So hopefully by Christmas we will have a crawler for the Grandparents! I think that will be a fun present. I will just stick a bow on her head and send her around the room. Now I must go do some housework!

Christmas Party

Friday night was our squadron Christmas Party. It was so much fun! The food fabulous. Nick and I both won super nice door prizes and the dirty Santa game was the best. (Thanks Natalie)

Our Fabulously, Fun, Festive table of Friends!
Our Saturday morning started off with Madeline coughing and coughing. We eventually headed to the ER and they gave her some medicine and sent us on home. Then Nick and I spent Saturday working outside and then we went to the local college Christmas program. Our friend Laura Brown was playing her French Horn. Madeline loved the show and just wiggled and wiggled in time to the music. Her favorite part was all the clapping. She would smile and smile. Then came Sunday. I woke up with the 24 hour stomach bug. I don't know what I would have done if Nick hadn't been home. But as I am typing this I am enjoying a yummy meal of dry toast and 7 up! I sure hope nobody else gets all these germs we have!
