(almost) Wordless Wednesday: Alternately titled: Just because I don't have girls doesn't mean I can't teach them a thing or two about makeup...

{This is what happens when your boys find hidden Halloween make-up stuck in the back of your closet--make-up that you got on wicked clearance at an after-Halloween sale, and that you had planned on saving for some fun on a rainy day, but had since forgotten all about. Said boys decide they want to be real pirates, "just like the ones on the package!" and, since you were stuck inside due to *inclement* weather, you agree. You agree to turn your sweet, baby-faced little boys into pirates. However, you unfortunately find that hastily ripping open the package and following the painting instructions on the box actually turns them into semi-dead looking, very scary Pirates instead of normal-looking ones. (Wait....are there such a thing as 'normal-looking' Pirates?) Dern that Halloween spin they have to put on everything.}

I still actually find them quite adorable, and they had a blast doing this--even Ethan, who I thought would never cooperate, climbed on the stool and said, "Me? My turn? Pee-ee-eeease?" and sat very still while I 'transformed' him!



They also enjoyed flashing some Pirate faces at me.....Happy Wednesday everyone!

How adorably cute...or are pirates not supposed to be cute? :)

I'll have to show the pics to my boys in the morning. They would love to be pirates!

Cool! Looks like our families have the same things on our minds. We have been talking pirates all week - in prep for Reece's 6 year old pirate party today. I am expecting high energy boys with lots of action. Wanna come? :)
