Too Much Lightning? & My Favorite Sock

Our boys have brought us so much joy. One of the most fun things to observe is when they become interested in something all on their own, without being prompted or encouraged. In Benjamin's case, we may have to ask whether there is too much of a good thing with Lightning McQueen. As you can see from the picture, Benjamin takes Lightning pretty seriously. The first things I can remember really being into and collecting were those Star Wars action figures. Remember those? Well, the "Cars" series has more than fit the bill for Benjamin.

By the way, which Star Wars figures were your favorites? Mine were: Boba Fett, C3PO, R2D2, and this "Snow-Gear" Han Solo that Grandma Forrister got for me. (I'm sure she remembers this...)

Benjamin also said something funny the other day, and Kristi told me about it. She was having him help her switch a load of laundry from the washer to the dryer, and she was telling him what each item was as she handed it to him. When she said, "This is daddy's sock," he responded with, "Oh, it's his favorite!" So, I guess I have a favorite sock. Not a favorite pair, mind you, just a favorite sock.

Just realized, there is an awful lot of carpet to look at in these two photos. I'll try to mix it up a bit more in the future.

Hope you're having a good day!

Is that the same Han Solo that was put into a dried plant and found YEARS later?

I don't remember that, but it wouldn't surprise me. Did you hear that from Sam? :)

Well, I finally read about the sock! I thought it was a child's sock from the picture. :-)
