Two boys




We've had a lot of fun with the boys - they are always such fun . . .

Ben comes over once or twice a week while his parents are at work (on the days when he doesn't go to kindergarten) and we have a grand time. We got him a pillow pet dog - he named him Bark-Bark. It seems that Bark-Bark loves the computer.



Bark-Bark likes to play in the living room too . . .

And Grammy likes to take pictures . . .


AND THEN HALLOWEEN

Jahn as Dr. Who (the 10th Dr. Who) and Ben as Star Wars Clone Warrior Commander Cody . . .

I think we all know something about Star Wars - but Dr. Who? Here is some info on Jahn's favorite TV show . . .

Doctor Who is a British science fiction program produced by the BBC. The program depicts the adventures of a mysterious and eccentric humanoid alien known as the Doctor, who travels through time and space in his spacecraft, the TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimensions In Space), which normally appears from the exterior to be a blue 1950s British polic box (looks like a big blue phone booth). With his companions, he explores time and space, faces foes and saves civilizations, helping others and righting wrongs, as well as improving the way people, aliens and robots choose to live their lives.

The program is listed in the Guiness World Records as the longest-running science fiction television show in the world, and as the "most successful" science fiction series of all time.

The program originally ran from 1963 to 1989. After an unsuccessful attempt to revive it in 1996, the program was relaunched in 2005.

So there you have it - Jahn's favorite show - and his favorite is the 10th Dr. Who - played by David Tenant. And Jahn could easily pass for a younger version of Dr. Who.



David Tenant - as Dr. Who


And Jahn as Dr. Who

He's got all the poses . . .

He's a natural - and Lori gave him a Dr. Who haircut . . .




Saturday before Halloween the downtown merchants in Bellingham put on a great trick-or-treat time - and there are hundreds (estimates were for over 1,000 this year) kids who dress up and come trick or treating. Ben met up with his classmate, Cian (in the back) who was dressed in Star Wars costume as Luke Skywalker, and Cian's 3 year old brother, Merrick, who insisted on being Princess Lea. This is the cutest Star Wars team around . . .

Jahn went for a sleep-over at Ben's that night and then they switched costumes. What could be cuter??!!??

It was a great Halloween and candy was enjoyed by all!!

Oh my gosh, Jahn's costume is incredible. And I see that Bark Bark and Ben have been mooching your computer time! It's always so cool to see kids so comfortable on the computer. ~Lili

Such adorable boys! I think it's a hoot that Dr. Who is back in vogue. I had sort of a crush on him many years ago.
