Halloween ’08

Halloween Lightsabers

Jedi Trainee Luke Skywalker, Jedi Master Yoda, and Padawan Bariss Offee on the prowl for candy (with cool lightsaber effects!)

Greetings faithful blog readers – this is your somewhat less than faithful blog writer!  I’ve been a little wishy-washy about upkeep on the blog of late.  It might have something to do with video games.  It might have something to do with the 4 week old cold I’ve had for 3 too many weeks.  It might have something to do with life in general.  I’m not sure – but here’s the news:  I’m back!

Halloween

"When 900 years old you reach, have cool pants like me you will not!"

So, Friday was of course, my favorite holiday based on Scottish and Irish traditions brought to America in the nineteenth century.  (I was going to say my favorite holiday based on pagan traditions, but many of our modern holidays parallel traditions from those wacky pagans of yore – see here for more details.)

Anyway, since Friday was a teacher work day, Luke came to hang out with me at the end of the day.  We went down to see our favorite shop and PE teachers Joy and Kim and posed for some fun pictures in front of the lockers down there.  Yes, I’m supposed to be Luke Skywalker (a Skywalker who had apparently been eating too much candy and not doing enough Jedi training) with Yoda (the real Luke) on my back.

Halloween

Sydney and Luke hanging out on Grammy's couch

After Bren got home, we hit the road to show off our cute little Jedi Master.  We ended up visiting Great-Grandma and Great-Grandpa Robinson, Grandma and Grandpa Berry, Grammy Bailey (Wendy, Vince, and Sydney were there and Britt of course), Great-Grandma Brown, Great-Grandma and Great-Grandpa Bailey, Grandpa Bailey, and Bert and Lisa (along with good old Skyler and Camden.)  Driving to see everyone in one night pushed my patience in the car a little bit, but it was very nice to get the chance to see so many members of our family in one day.

We didn’t actually go trick-or-treating at all since we were too busy visiting people (luckily I have enough money now to just go buy the candy I want!)  Adam, at least, will be happy to hear that we didn’t attend a trunk or treat.  🙂

  1. Luke, I am very happy you have a “me” outfit. Maybe someday you can make the noise like your dad!
