So we randomly got to meet Brandon Carter (#76 TTU Offensive Lineman, the one who paints his face up and has an outlandish mohawk and facial piercings) one Saturday...the Saturday he was suspended from a game, to be exact. He was tailgating in the same parking lot as us.
Brandon was very sweet and agreeable to our paparazzi moment. My youngest son was scared of him at first (this guy is GINORMOUS), but after he warmed up
to Brandon, an idea was born. And the idea quickly became an obsession to a little impish 5 year old boy (i.e. it's all we heard about for weeks).
Fast forward to Halloween weekend...
The idea that became an obsession, turned into a reality for Blake
Meet Luke Skywalker and Brandon Carter (I know weird coupling, huh?)
And it was SO worth it... because after we got his hair and makeup done, Blake looked up at me with his big green eyes, and EARNESTLY told me, "This is my dream come true!"
