Chicken pops!

Emma has full blown chicken pox! All over her little body. They began appearing on Saturday morning and have multiplied. She is feeling fine but is a tad itchy.

Her small friend Heidi had them recently and called them Chicken pops! Love that.

Yesterday at Church we had 3, yes 3 Baptisms! The happy fellows are pictured below.

Last night I have been finishing off this quilt. I love the spotty binding, a bit like Emma and her spots!

Matthew 28: 19 - 20 NIV.

19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."


  1. Lovely quilt!

    Yay for the baptisms!

    Poor little spotty baby. We have vaccines for Chicken Pox here in the states, so I don't know if kids still get them here. I had them when I was young and I STILL remember them.

    Have a great day!

  2. I remember when my kids had chicken pox! I had them wear socks on their hands at bedtime so that they wouldn't scratch in their sleep. Sometimes I had them wear socks during the day too.

    An oatmeal bath helps with the itching. I put the oatmeal in a sock, that way you don't have to clean up a huge mess in the bath. My son had a couple of oatmeal baths a day and said they helped.

    I also put calamine lotion on them and gave them Benadryl. However, if you give her Benadryl and do the Calamine, make sure the Calamine is plan and doesn't come with the Benadryl, otherwise you'll overdose her.

    I'm glad she's doing well. My youngest had a 104 temp and was hallucinating when he had chicken pox. I left him with his dad and went out and bought a few small toys (like $1.00 kind) and gave him a little toy or book each day until he was well.

    When I was little I was sick for a long time, and my mom and my grandma gave me a little present each day and that gave me something to look forward too.

  3. I also remember when each of my 3 had Chickenpox, just barely, but I do remember! I love your new blog design! Thank you, Collette for your comments to me! I totally understand family taking up your time! I do love all of your posts!

  4. Hi Collette,

    SO nice of you to visit my blog after my long hiatus.

    Oh, your post brings back memories of my (now adult) son who had Chicken "Pops" *smile*. They were SO bad for him, his entire back was hot and swollen. WHAT misery! I'm glad you're precious daughter is smiling and hope she is feeling well very soon.

    Oh, and love your quilt. :)
