Day Two Forty Three

2015-10-31 18.01.45Halloween was great. Lily lasted about twenty minutes, but Luke could have gone on and on and one. As the night continued he got into that loopy, wonderful non sensical zone where he free associates a grand wazoo. I just love it.

He would see a house with light or some activity and just strike a pose and then zoom off into the darkness. Luckily with his a little bit too large yellow rain boots he could not go all that fast. He just had a blast.

I think this shot taken by our neighbor tells the story aptly. Luke is all filled with anticipation and Lily looks like a deer (or in this case a giraffe) caught in the headlights.

Day Two Thirty Nine

I got pretty excited about last years Halloween situation, and that was just created a home made Spider-Man outfit for Luke.

This year seems to be a double doozy.

I asked Luke casually like six months ago what he wanted to be for Halloween and without a moments hesitation he said “Thor”.

Six months later I asked him again and he said “Don’t you remember, Thor”

OK, Thor it is. Now you may or may not be aware that Thor is one of the more obscure super heros out there and before there was a blockbuster Thor movie, no one really knew about Thor, except me.

I guess this is just an example of the son wanting to be something that the dad enjoys and talks about. I am by no means a super hero zealot, but I have a few tee shirts and I talk about them sporadically and yes, Thor is one of the few characters I really like. So, there you have it. We are making Thor.

Yesterday we made the hammer or Mjölnir as it is known. I was quite excited to build one from scratch and though it is a bit unwieldily, to me that is all true to the Thor character, you see ONLY Thor can wield the Mjölnir.


thats just the way it is.

Meanwhile Lily is going to be a Giraffe or GiGi and today I finished pinning the headpiece, which will be the hardest part, I think.


Ill be back with the finished items.
