Zombie Flu and Vampires

Our little family went a little under radar after the Aurich Christmas Party. We caught some odd stomach bug that kept us all out of commission (forcing us to miss some fun parties and stuff...*sad face*). Sarah had it the longest, poor girl. Couldn't keep anything down for a day or two, be fine and then wake up in the middle of the night to start all over. 
I became an expert bed-washer and completely broke in my parent's new washer and dryer (which are amazing...*sigh* one day...) I also helped my mom with her spring cleaning by laundering pretty much everything in her linen closest... you're welcome mom. Sar-Bear was a champ and handled it really well. 

The morning of Christmas Eve both girls woke up in the middle of the night and at the same time, lost their dinner. I had to call for reinforcements because I didn't know how to handle both going at the same time. The oddest thing is that the girls would be sick, and then would act like nothing had happened. They weren't cranky, lethargic or anything. Just had problems keeping stuff down and had upset tummies. 

So I guess the girls had the stomach flu, but to me I'm going to call it the Zombie Flu. Because, for like a week+ we all felt like zombie's, or maybe just Ryan and I caught the zombie flu and the girls had the stomach flu. Staying up way too late, then waking up in the middle of the night to throw a fresh batch of laundry in, and then getting up with the girls again when they woke up for the day. Pretty interesting way to spend a week of our vacation. Ryan and I got a little bit of the upset stomach, but that was it.  

Unfortunately we shared the love a little. This bug was highly contagious. So sorry to any friends and family who inadvertently caught the the stomach or the zombie flu from us. We didn't mean to. 

There is a hiccup in pictures, another side-effect of the zombie flu, but I did manage to get this one of Sarah on a day she was feeling fine. 
She had a lot of fun pretending to be a vampire. Unfortunately, I think she re-contaminated herself by playing with it repeatedly before, during and after she was sick. Upon realizing this, the teeth promptly became "lost" and helped stop the zombie flu cycle we'd entered.

A zombie flu caused by vampire teeth? That's . . . kinda awesome, in theory. (In practice, no.)
