It hasn't exactly been a normal Thanksgiving!! Last night we had fun grilling hotdogs outside on the deck.
Who would have thought that after a great night of playing games and eating yummy food, that Evie would wake up this morning like this....
Yep, it is chicken pox!! Actually, in honor of Thanksgiving, it is now called "Turkey Pox". Yesterday she started getting a few water blister spots on her. I just figured it was an aftermath from another rash she had the week earlier that was from something she was allergic to. Last night she got a headache, which she never gets. Then she woke up covered from head to toe with the blisters. I had chicken pox my senior year of high school, so I remember it quite well. She has all the symptoms I had. She has spent the day watching tv, itching and feeling pretty crummy. I have been slathering her with stuff all day to keep her as comfortable as possible.
We ate Thanksgiving lunch out with her in the living room. No family came over because she is so contagious. She was really bummed about that. We all relaxed today.
Even with Evie having chicken pox, I still have so much to be thankful for! I feel so blessed to have Christ in my life, to have my family, to live in a free country, to have a nice warm home, to have food in my freezers and pantry, and so much more.
