Ginette, Dayla, and I all have the flu today so I actually have some time to write this blog entry. We’ll see if I don’t keel over before I am done.
We had a busy Halloween this year. I took the 30th off and we went up to Bate’s Nut Farm (i.e. Nate’s Butt Farm) to see the pumpkins and take pictures with our new (used) obscenely large lens.

Dayla hated the hat of her bear costume. She only wore it for a minute before tearing it off.
For our costumes we were hikers who got attacked by a bear. Get it? We won the prize for best family costume (Thanks Ben and Juli).

For comparison, here is a picture from last Halloween on the same couch. Ysabel, Tabitha, Ethan, Eleanor, Dayla

Halloween is a BIG DEAL at my office. Lots of people dress up, there are department decorating contest, and not a whole lot of work gets done. To give you a sense of it, here is our MC, Sarah Palin.
