Family Photography: Darth Vader: The-Not-So-Dark Side

Ah, the progression of Halloween costumes as they grow older. Two years ago Kaden wanted to be a cow. Last year, a pirate, but of the Neverland variety. This Halloween, he was rollin' with the Empire and totally down with the dark side of the force. Well, in his mind anyway...

We went trick-or-treating in Downtown Covington's Square, and one of the local businesses was handing out mini LED lights to the kids instead of candy. That worked out perfectly for this next image - who needs a light saber anyway?

My 6-month-old, who had absolutely no say in his costume choice, was a bumble bee. At least the Universe is safe from him..for now...
