The Purple Butterfly

This past October 31, Audrey's dreams of candy and superhero glory were shattered upon our arrival at the house of Renee and Jim. We had a decent-sized  night ahead of us: Renee and Jim's, then to various friends' houses, before hitting the mall, where we were to meet Mom and Dad. 

After having walked through the front door, Audrey immediately vomited all over the floor. We should have seen it coming. After all, we arrived at her daycare for the big Halloween party, just in time for her to get sick in her classroom. We chalked it up to too much excitement.

Unfortunately, the vomiting never stopped. Two more times in the car on the way home (Renee was kind enough to loan us a Tupperware container), and then throughout the night. Needless to say, periods of sleep were few and far between that night. And rest was sparse throughout the remainder of the weekend.
