We are currently working on this year’s Halloween costumes. Last night, my daughter tried her’s on. As she was grinning from ear to ear, she said the sweetest thing: When I wear the costumes you make for me, I feel warm inside.
After several years of not being able to “stay on target ” as it were, Jedi Master Heidi decided we needed a sign that listed the activities of our May the Fourth be with You Party. Not that we have THAT many activities, but we are always so busy eating that we forget to make lightsabers… or take a group photo. So to keep us organized, she made these (re-useable) chalkboard signs that R 2 cute…
A few weeks ago I shared that M4P mom was worried that our Christmas cards were going to be Star Wars themed. Well, she was right! (My mom is almost always right…) We sent them out a couple of weeks ago, and now I’m sharing them with you guys too.
The cards had a cut Star Wars snowflake on top, once you flipped that up, you can see the text, photos and design elements – all which are Star Wars themed. (Go further down the post to see the card in its entirety).
But this post really is not about Star Wars…. ‘cuz as much as we focus on fun, and arguably frivolous things here on this blog, we all know these are not the things that truly matter in life.
I have mentioned this before, but it deserves repeating: Star Wars is a “chick flick.”
It has love, romance, a smart and beautiful heroine, a scruffy nerfherder with a heart of gold, confused family dynamics, romantic tension, and did I mention LOVE? …. It just also happens to have a bunch space stuff. (They just disguised it as a guy flick – so we can get our dates and hubbies to watch something WE want to watch for once.)
…or at least is was 95% Star Wars free! (That is probably not the answer our friends would give you if you asked them about the wedding, but it is nevertheless true!) Since Valentine’s is coming up, I thought it would be appropriate to get a little personal here, and share a few details about our special day.
