Somewhere in between bobbing for apples and swapping neon vampire teeth and before we could really dig into the apple cider donuts we snuck home from the big Halloween party, we got hit hard by the flu. I'll spare you the ghastly details (this time, luckies) but after three days of heaving our guts out on a half-hourly basis, I am pretty sure Lil E and I deserve all the mini Butterfingers we gulp down over the lingering nausea (oh, did I say I'd spare the details?).
So yeah, here are the happier/more concerning parts of Halloween and our family (depending on how you view these pics) before the heinousness set in.
