Well, I guess there would be no "Vamp" in Vampdaddy if I didn't post on Halloween - the Vampfamily's favorite holiday!
Vampboy spent the day wandering around in his Jester costume (good thing for Vampmommy she made it slightly over-sized when he wore it last year, so it still fits), taking candy and gifts of stickers and toys from well wishers. This was followed by a fun time decorating spooky-themed cookies. Who could ask for anything more on this day?
Well, we could -- seeing as Vampboy's festivities took place while he's in the hospital. But at least a place that works largely with kids knows when it's time to throw a party! One of Vampboy's docs came by dressed as a penguin, and while Scrubs didn't commit to the holiday as fully as she claims to, she did arrive at his room with a sporty pirate eye patch.
So, we shrug off our disappointment and take solace in the fact that he had fun, and seemed to get through the day without a crippling fever or other such nastiness.
A short post, I know, but it is late in the evening and sleep calls. As a public service, I will close my Halloween post with a little known fact: the concept that Vampire's can only come out a night is not part of traditional Vampire folklore. "Dracula" was the first novel to include that limitation. So even the day is not safe.
