About a month ago Easton informed me that his name was NOT Easton Ronald ... but that it was Easton Skywalker. On many days he still prefers that (with a cheesy grin along with the request.) I thought this was particularly funny since he's never seen ANY of the StarWars movies or really played much with the toys. I guess the fascination with the light sabor (that I have luckily avoided buying or getting as a gift because I KNOW it would be used as a weapon against his brother) is enough though! He did not choose to be Luke or Han or Yoda for Halloween surprisingly. Could it be because I kinda swayed him toward the things I already had on hand?
Here they are ... Blue Power Ranger, Snow Leopard, & Spiderman

AKA: Easton, Nolan & Brayden
This is our pumpkin. It's supposed to be a haunted castle (like the one on Scooby Doo) although Jeff thought it looked more like a sewing machine, the boys kept wanting to see a face in it. Consider it modern pumpkin art.
(My favorite part is Nolan in the doorway making sure I don't get too far out of his sight.)
Before we decided on costumes the boys went through every possible combination including hockey player, ninja warrior, fireman, m&m, red power ranger, boxer ... they tend to want to be what they were last year, which I totally have no problem with. It's just committing to an outfit I wish they could do a little quicker.
Here's my attempt at making a black eye for my hockey player, who decided to be spiderman in the end. (It was somewhat disturbing to put eye make-up on my sons (because of course Easton wanted a black-eye too) but hey ... Jeff was hunting SO I got to have fun with makeup. And Brayden has the eyelids like me that disappear when his eyes open ... so that was a challenge, Easton on the other hand has eyelids that are perfect for shadow ... and those eyelashes? They are 5 miles long on their own! It's a good thing he's not a girl because Jeff would be in BIG trouble in a few years if he were!)
And to tell you the truth ... seeing THIS in my living room was kinda freaky! It looked a little too real!
