Royally Flanked

....and no small wonder as to why he sleeps the sleep of kings.

All is well tended to, by the royal older brother guards, at the ready to serve and protect their royal charge. A duty that is taken quite seriously in this castle, to protect the baby emperor come what may.

Were they prepared for this task on a dark Halloween night? The answer was a firm, unwavering, "Yes, my queen. We shall guard the boy."

"Very well then, be safe, my children. And hold your little brother's hand. I love you."

  3. Not sure I could have ever counted on my oldest to protect his younger siblings. I think he might still throw them under the bus, if given the chance!

    Big siblings are the best!

  29. Jango Fett! My boy was a Jango Fett, too. And the lil' one was Yoda.

    When I was pregnant year before last, I wore a short blonde wig and went as Rosemary from Rosemary's Baby. I love Halloween!

    Looking forward to the next Baby E post......
