The weekends are going by pretty quickly now that Christmas is really only a week and a half away. We have something planned almost everyday!
This past weekend there was a Christmas party at Charlie's dads house (where we live). He had a magician, Kevin, come in to entertain the guests. This guy is AMAZING! He makes a card show up in a banana and you have to peel the banana to reveal the card. Henry loved watching his tricks. He even made Henry some balloon animals and a sword.
The party was wrapping up and there were some guests left so I let Ellie out. She was being kept in the basement so she would not eat all the food. Well she ran over to the guests and they started petting her, then all of a sudden she laid down and started moaning. Charlie ran over and picker her up....His words to his Dad "I think she is dead." I immediately started crying. Her eyes rolled back and her tongue was hanging out. We brought her into the laundry room where Charlie put water on her lips. After a few minutes she was back but couldn't really walk. We took a blanket and wrapped it around her and sat with her on the couch. She still wouldn't take water but she was eating Milkbones. In about an hour she was back to herself.
We have no idea what happened but it was just so very scary. Ellie will be 12 in March and we realize she is old but if you saw her you would think she was still a puppy!
On Sunday once we could see that Ellie was okay we headed into DC to see the train exhibit at Union Station. What a waste of gas! There was one model train - ONE! Sorry there was one exhibit and it had three trains on it. I thought it was going to be this big exhibit and when we saw it we were so disappointed. Henry loved it regardless and loved watching the choo's choo's go round but we could have gone somewhere closer. At least we know not to waste our time next year.
