Battle of the Uncles, Round Two

It seems I started something with my “Battle of the Uncles” post about a month ago. Over the weekend, a package came in the mail. It was addressed to Jacob; the note inside was addressed to me. “I win round two?” Michael wrote.


Yes, Michael, I think you do.



That’s right. There’s a cape, attached with Velcro. Jacob’s saving his aunts from certain doom in the photo above, in case you were wondering.



Check it out: while wearing his cape, Jacob is imbued with powers that allow him to drink from a big boy cup. Powerful stuff.



Oh no! A nose-booping aunt? Could this be his Kryptonite?



Nope. But I think he might be hers.

    Oh it is on! Well played Michael. Well played.
