Christmas Party......

We had our local Down syndrome group Christmas party on Saturday. Emma Sage was so excited all morning, eagerly getting ready to go see her friends.

When we arrived [we rode in Daddy's car on a bumpy road] she ran in with a smile from ear to ear. She stopped in the middle of the wooden dance floor and proceeds to throw up a little bit. We clean her up, clean up and disinfect the floor and figure she had motion sickness from the ride over.

She plays and dances, but is not her usualy 'bubbly' self. She did get up on stage and sing Christmas Carols [and what a little ham-bone this child is.....she is such the performer].

The big jolly guy in the velvet red suit arrived and Emma Sage was just besides herself.

After the exchanging of gifts, my little girl looks over to me and says "Mommy, my belly hurts real bad" to which she proceeds to finish empting the contents of her stomach that were not spewed all over the floor earlier.

We pack up and head a warm bath and a night full of vomiting everytime she took a drink.

My poor little girl, she is very rarely ill, and of all days for her to get a stomach bug, but at her 'PARTY' as she thinks the party was just for her! lol!!!

Here are a few pictures from our day.....
Abbie, Emma Sage, Devonie and Hannah. Abbie is our friend that visits us in the mornings and after school, Devonie is Emma Sage's 'bestest friend' or so she tells us! and Hannah lives in our township also and is one of three [triplets]

Dancing with her best friend

Move over Fergie
American out, here comes Emma Sage

Now it is your turn
Sharing the time in the limelight!!!

Her favorite place to be.....
This child just loves to perform and she just loves to sing!!!

Giving the big guy a kiss
Giving a big kiss to Santa......

and then I stopped taking pictures as you really don't want to see a stomach flu in full force!

I hope you are all well and not catching any of these yucky bugs going around [ah, the joy of winter season]

Claire wants to tell Emma Sage to feel better. Claire got the same thing on our way up north for Thanksgiving. We too thought motion sickness. In the end our 22 pound wonder ended up bringing down the whole family with the same buggy.

Hope Emma Sage feels better soon and that the rest of you stay healthy!

I love the tippytoes so she can reach Santa. Hope Emma is feeling better and no one else got the dreaded IT.

oh Emma, I hope you feel better soon!

And Tara, I'm sorry for not posting more on your blog - I wanted to but wasn't always feeling good enough to do it. I so wish I could give you a huge hug in person. When you post about missing your Mom, I cry too as I know all too well what you're feeling and going through. It's going to be a tough holiday season. But I am so thankful for my children (both with T21 and without LOL) as they help keep the magic in this magical season.
- with love, Annette
