Haloween fun..and not so fun!

Halloween weekend started out great, but didn't end so well. Friday Clare and I went to the pumpkin patch and had a very fun time! There were animals and a hay ride and not many people, so Clare just got to roam and get muddy - two things she loves. We all had dinner at our favorite restaurant, Mac's BBQ and then headed home. Around midnight Clare woke up vomiting and it was her very first little "bug" other than a cold. The funniest part was me asking LD if he wanted the vomit covered bed or his vomit covered daughter and after inspecting both very carefully decided to take the bed.

Luckily Clare didn't have any more stomach sickness, but she had a bad cough, runny nose and has been on food strike. Her cough she has had on and off all fall and even after being at the doctors many times, it hasn't seemed to go away. So Saturday we put on her costume for pictures, even though she was not thrilled with any part of it. Then of course the rain came right at 6:30 and we decided to scratch the whole thing. We watched a Halloween episode of Yo Gabba Gabba, passed out candy to our two trick or treaters and called it a night!

Sunday was much the same way, with a fussy and unhappy little girl. Today the doctor diagnosed her with an ear infection and treated her for pneumonia more for prevention since her cough has lingered so long. After two very sleepless nights we are calling Halloween a wash for this year and are hoping for a healthy little girl in 24 hours!
