I made the mistake last night of mentioning out loud that this was the first Halloween in a long time that one of us hasn't ended up with the flu. Then Sophie woke up with a stomach ache. When I called the attendance office this morning at the elementary school I had to resist the urge to add, "I promise she really is sick! We didn't keep her out too late, and she didn't eat that much candy!" Regardless of what the attendance office thinks, Sophie is my Netflix buddy today. We've spent the day watching My Little Pony and editing photos.
Luckily we were all healthy enough to enjoy the Halloween Festivities over the last few days...
Meeting our friendly neighborhood Vampire:
Discovering Super Girl's secret identity:
(I recommend starting to hum the Super Man Theme right here as you scroll through the next few photos).
And...this one reminds me of Super Grover.
Cataloging the Loot:
I discovered that my favorite Halloween candy is Skittles. This revelation was a surprise to me because generally my favorite candy is something chocolate. The only time I eat skittles is at Halloween. Unfortunately, we only ended up with 3 little packs of Skittles.
Tasting a War Head for the first time:

...where the spirit of autumn takes a first stealing flight, like a spy, through the ripening country-side, and, with feigned sympathy for those who droop with August heat, puts her cool cloak of bracing air about leaf and flower and human shoulders." Sarah Orne Jewett.
