Halloween 2009

I was sick and grumpy on Halloween and Eamon refused to cooperate himself so the photos are few and far between this year. Here is the little Master Yoda gearing up for trick-or-treating. He was a little hesitant to approach the houses (particularly ones with scary music and/or big clowns handing out candy). He did bravely go to a few houses, but his loot was paltry this year which is just right for him so we didn't mind! And once he got home, he promptly forgot all about the candy so no harm, no foul!

The big guys really enjoyed trick-or-treating and had fun. Here they are getting into the spirit before we headed out. It is a strange, multi-generational fantasy battle ensuing here.... Colin is Anakin Skywalker and Liam, of course is "Dark Vader" as he calls him. However, they haven't seen all the Star Wars movies so they are still a bit confused about the fact that Anakin is really Darth Vader as a younger, and albeit, more benevolent, Jedi. Either way, they were happy to wield their light sabers and that's all that mattered to them.

Colin is so into art right now and he does such a nice job on things that I thought his rendition of Trick-or-treating (complete with his little Jack-o-lantern candy bucket) was a lot better than any of the photos I took! I particularly like the moon and stars in the night sky!
