Step aside, Dark Helmet... here comes Claire!

Are there any fans of the awesome 1987 movie, Spaceballs, out there? It was written and directed by Mel Brooks, who is a favorite of the men of our doghouse. It's a spoof of Star Wars and the lead character could work at Momma's office. His name is Dark Helmet (the equivalent of Darth Vader), and he says in the movie, "Evil will always triumph over good because good is dumb." So anyway, Stew and Claire came home from the store yesterday with a new biking helmet for Claire. And ever since trying it on, Claire refuses to take the darn thing off. In fact, I'm surprised she didn't wear it to bed last night, but I suppose Momma had a say in that matter. I'm attaching a couple pics of Claire enjoying her new helmet (and $1 sunglasses)...

I'm a little teapot, short and stout;
Here is my handle... here is my spout!

When I get all steamed up, hear me shout;
Then tip me over and pour me out!

Watching Curious George this morning. The look on my face should be enough for you to figure out how happy I am that Stew also bought Claire a butterfly net... and she apparently thinks my head is a butterfly that needs to be captured every 2 minutes...

And finally... her future's so bright, Claire's gotta wear shades!
