caleb has been obsessed with this show for several months now:
and ben, being the good dad he is, got a creative idea. caleb as a musketeer for halloween? why not. but instead of buying the costume ($35), ben decided to make it. that's right, make it. i have to admit i was pretty skeptical. but we are talking about a man and a dream here people. turns out ben and a glue gun make a deadly team.
here is ben martha stewart strader hard at work:
and a picture of him wearing the half-finished product...
and now, for the unveiling of the masterpiece...
(let's pretend those are tears of joy in the corner of his eyes. he wasn't happy about the fashion show.)
caleb loved it, especially the sword.
can you believe it? he drew the fleur de lis freestyle. with puff paint, nonetheless.
there's nothing like a little blood, sweat and one HUGE thumb blister (still healing) to make for a great time. we had a fun halloween...a ward trunk-or-treat, then trick-or-treating with our friends the beckers last night. (thanks again for the fun! and i'm not as socially retarded as ben said. i am socially retarded, just not to the level he proposed.)
ben set the bar for this year, i'm excited to see halloween 2009.
hope everyone had a great time!
