Flu is worse than snow

I've had halloweens ruined by snow. Those years where costumes were hidden under snowpants and huge puffy jackets were pretty bad... but not as bad the flu sprinkles down right before Halloween.

We had great plans. But Reuben was hit pretty bad, high fever, coughing, sneezing. He was throwing up on thursday morning. Friday he was asking me if I liked "his new voice" you know, that voice you get when you're sick? And, now he is complaining of an ear ache. "Why can't I hear you?"

So, we will have our own halloween party. I sent daddy out to get stuff for fondue (get it a bubble, bubble toil and trouble). And, we will all be dressing up because I want to take full advantage of the fancy costumes.

I'm secretly pleased. I think we will have plenty of fun and look great.

So sorry you're feeling sick. Nothing is worse than sick kids...even if it's not Halloween. Have a great party at your own house! Happy Halloween.

of COURSE the flu is worse than snow, because snow is WONDERFUL! haha!
I'm sorry Reuben's sick, although I'm very happy that you're so secretly pleased about the family party - those can totally be the best :)
Hope everyone is feeling better soon - please post family party photos, would love to see them :)

PS. Bubble, bubble toil and trouble: very cool. And I say that as somewhat of an expert on halloween ;)
