Yo-Ho, Yo-Ho a Pirates Life For Me

This year for Halloween Dylan decided that he wanted to be Captain Jack Sparrow since Pirates of the Caribbean is one of his favorite rides at Disneyland. I'm sure the fact that he got to carry a sword didn't hurt either. After many calls to the local and some not so local Disney Stores; I was finally able to track down what just may have been the very last Captain Jack Sparrow costume in Orange County! Heaven forbid I let my child down on Halloween.

I surprised him with the costume one day after school and he couldn't wait to try it on. Of course I did have my stipulations to his carrying a sword and being a pirate ... yep, you guessed it ... he had to wear the eyeliner! Now Dylan knows that his mom is a makeup artist and puts makeup on girls, so I had to convince him that what I was using on him was special Pirate makeup! I figure what he doesn't know won't hurt him. Seriously, what's Captain Jack without the eyeliner?

This was the first year that Aunt Stephie wasn't here to go trick-or-treating with us, but we managed. Dylan's best friend Owen and his family met us at Grandma's house and we all took the streets of Eastbluff for what else ... CANDY!
