Our computer 'sploded (literally, the whole room still smells like burning three days later) and it took me a week to load the the Halloween pics onto the laptop because, honestly, until 15 minutes ago I didn't know we could.



We attended a birthday party at Build-A-Bear the morning of Halloween. Have you heard of this? You buy an empty bear skin, it gets stuffed before your very eyes and then you accessorize. Dash's bear got Star Wars jammies & a skateboard. It embodies everything he loves in the universe. Dash is 2nd from the left in the back row. I point it out because he's smiling so I know you'd never recognize him.

Dash is Captain Rex. He is some sort of clone that is a good guy even though he looks exactly like a Storm Trooper which I have been led to believe is a bad guy. I dunno. I was too cool in the '80s to learn anything about Star Wars. (Josh is right now killing me with his mind).

Also, Josh built that blaster out of duct tape & PVC pipe while Dash was napping. It is so awesome what a man will do for his son when they can geek out together over Star Wars.

This year we spent Halloween at the Pookies with Aunty, the Vaughns and the Kinkaids. Their neighborhood has a block party and parade every year & I just don't know how I'll ever go back to just regular old trick-or-treating again.

"Well, ok, one. But I won't smile."

The costume is awesome, the blaster is ingenious, and I love the photos. My own son rarely smiles for the camera so I don't have a ton of him smiling either. And he was a geeky mini Spock thanks to an idea from his geeky treky dad.
