I do Believe – that All the World’s a Star…

…Beyond that heav’nly light I shall fly far!”
Luke (ACT I, Scene 7), William Shakespeare’s Star Wars: Verily, A New Hope.

William Shakespeare's Star Wars, by Ian Doescher /// Check out our blog for lots of Star Wars gift ideas /// #starwars #starwarsgift #maythefourthbewithyou #starwarsbirthday #shakespeare #christmaspresent #starwarsbook #read maythefourthbewithyoupartyblog.com

One of the things on my bucket list is to see all of Shakespeare’s plays, live on stage.  (I’ve made a decent dent – about a dozen different plays live, plus another 10 plays recorded live on stage, or movies)

So needless to say, when M4P friend Amy sent me Ian Doescher’s, marvelous 3 book boxed set William Shakespeare’s Star Wars for Christmas last year.  I squealed with surprise and delight! It’s like they were written just for me!!!

Sorry, I was so Sluggish in Posting! (Space Slug Gift Wrapping)

Space Slug Gift Wrapping and Paper Crafts /// Check out our blog for lots of Star Wars Party crafts and ideas /// #starwars #starwarsparty #maythefourthbewithyou #starwarsbirthday #spaceslug #papercraft maythefourthbewithyoupartyblog.com

M4P friend Gene Ha will tell you this gift wrap is NOT a space slug, it is a lobster claw… 

Of course he has a compelling argument…  He bought the Admiral Ackbar bobble-head that was inside for me (yeah!!!), AND he created the wrapping.  And as all of Gene’s fans know, Gene has a somewhat warped sense of humor, so a lobster claw wrapping makes perfect sense to him.  Calamarian… Red gourmet seafood… Lobster.

A Gift too Nice to Open! (Ewok Wrapping)

Ewok Wrapping and Paper Crafts (with Bobblehead) /// Check out our blog for lots of Star Wars Party crafts and ideas /// #starwars #starwarsparty #maythefourthbewithyou #starwarsbirthday #ewok #papercraft maythefourthbewithyoupartyblog.com

Come on, who does not LOVE getting presents?  And who does not LOVE to tear them open right away?  Not me, not this time. I recently received 3 small-ish boxes (from M4P friend Gene Ha) wrapped as Star Wars figures, and I just could not imagine that the inside could live up to the awesome outsides.  So I didn’t, open them, for a looong, time.

Oops, I did it again! (Bantha Milk Pancakes)

Star Wars Food: Bantha Milk Pancakes (TIE-Fighter, Darth Vader, X-Wing, Millennium Falcon, and Yoda Shaped) /// Check out our blog for lots of Star Wars Party food recipes and downloadable labels!

They sure did not look pretty, but what can be more fun than making Star Wars pancakes with Bantha milk?

The kids had a snow day not too long ago.  As a working parent it is both a treat to get to stay home with the kids on a weekday (sleep in, yeay!!), and a scramble to juggle working from home with them around.  This time around, fun won out.  Upon the kids insistence, we made pancakes.  But not just any pancakes – we made Bantha milk pancakes.  We have tried to use the Star Wars shapes before, and it didn’t work.  And I have to admit, it didn’t go well this time either.  They didn’t turn out very Star Wars-shaped.  The color was more greenish than blue.  And trying to pry a Millennium Falcon out of its mold, I sorta burnt the others.  But, you know what?  They were made with love and lots of laughter and tasted GREAT, so I still call it a success!
