Get Well Soon Little Babe

This photo completely sums up how Gretchen was feeling today.

I imagine she's thinking something like "oh why is my nose so runny, mama??" and "this snot rash is making me grumpy!"

Poor little lass. I figure we brought home a little bug after being stuck in the ER for five hours the other night. We just can't catch a break!

Thankfully today was a little better than yesterday & after her three hour (yay!) nap this afternoon she was much less stuffed up & much more cheerful. My fingers are crossed that she'll be feeling well enough to go to the Santa Claus parade tomorrow evening. The boy actually has the day off & I'm so excited to take Gretchen to what is one of my favourite Christmas traditions.

Does your city/town/delightful little borough have a parade? Are you going this year?

I've watched the parade from work for the last three years and though that was lots of fun (especially when we handed out hot chocolate) I'm looking forward to watching it with my family.

Ah -- I love this time of year!

i hope gretchen is feeling better soon. poor little thing.

our city's christmas parade is tonight. the parade itself is kind of lame, but watching all the little kids camped out on the sidewalk and in the alleys is adorable.

Awe yay -- it's so cute to watch their little eyes light up when they see the floats!
And especially when all that free candy is being handed out, haha.

Hey so I was thinking about how you are a bit paranoid about G falling out of the bed. Have you thought about getting a Safe T Sleep? We have one in ZJ's cot and its so good. Keeps him snug and secure and he has learned to roll over onto his side or belly depending on how he is comfy now hes older. You can get ones ..the travel ones i think... that fit big person beds.

Anyway, just a thought as I know how paranoid we can get about them taking off off the side while we are sleeping ;)

Oh get better baby G! Poor little girl.
Our parade came and went (we didn't get to go) but we may just end up checking out a neighbouring town's parade next weekend.

Poor G! I hope she is feeling better. You can definitely tell she doesn't feel well in that picture, but she is still as adorable as ever!

Our town doesn't have a Christmas parade, but we do have a celebration downtown on the town square called "Hometown Christmas" where the streets are lined with luminaries, the tress are covered in Christmas lights and every store and business is open for free cookies, hot chocolate and other Christmas treats. Carolers wander around the square singing Christmas favorites. A horse-drawn wagon all decked out for Christmas takes people for a ride in the brisk night air. The town gathers around the biggest evergreen tree in the center of town for the annual lighting, and Santa is in his house, waiting to see what kids want for Christmas. Hometown Christmas is one of the best celebrations my little town here in Indiana has to offer. :)
