Rocket Man!


OK, OK, I know it's not Halloween yet. But I had to share Luke's costume.

Luke has been obsessed lately with watching rocket ships. We watch the shuttle launches on YouTube constantly. I think he watched the shuttle Discovery launch about 50 times the other day.

When the topic of Halloween came up, Hal said, "Wouldn't it be great if we could make him a rocket ship?"

I had no idea if there was a rocket ship costume. I had no urge to make one (I have other things going on, after all!). I thought maybe we could find an astronaut costume, which wasn't ideal because Luke didn't quite know what an astronaut was.

But we found this costume. It's a Target costume, and was (even on sale!) more expensive than I would normally spend on a costume -- $25 on sale. But he was SO EXCITED about it. And it was the only thing we saw. And I didn't want to think about it anymore.

So we bought it. And he LOVES it.

In fact, he wouldn't take it off the day we brought it home. Even to play.


(I guess we'll take heart in the fact that Nathan's costume came from Once Upon a Child and was like $2.)

Luke Sings!

Luke is a rock star this week! Yesterday he had a silly hat and a guitar hero guitar at my mom's, and was singing "My Old Kentucky Home." The day before he jumped up on our fireplace, sang a bunch of Alleluias, and finished off with a rousing rendition of "Jesus Loves Me." 
Today, I was playing on the computer and randomly sang, "Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy." To my complete surprise, Luke chimed in, "Here number. Call me maybe."
