Twice the Hoth Chocolate. Swede!

Should Hoth Chocolate be served Hot or Cold?  Hot, because it is a pun, and the people here at M4P are awfully fond of puns?  Or cold, because, well, everything on Hoth is frozen?  An internal M4P poll came out divided (3 to 2 in favor of Hot).  So we ended up making both: a Hot(h) version, AND a cold Hoth-like version.  Both simple, yummy, and made with a secret Swedish ingredient.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Star Wars themed Christmas Card with Star Wars Snowflakes by Anette Nam Design /// We add new Star Wars crafts to our blog every week! /// #starwars #theforceawakens #snowflake #christmascard /// maythefourthbewithyoupartyblog.com

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.

Is there Crying at Star Wars?

2 weeks ago, we talked about Star Wars movie preparedness.  The movie premiers tomorrow, and I wanted to mention one last thing:  You’ll probably need tissues!

The fact that there is a new movie coming out is pretty emotional for a lot of people.  And I vividly remember the day, 3 years ago when it was announced that Disney bought Star Wars…

The Hubby was working really late, and I had already turned in.  Around 2 am, I was forcefully awakend by loud thumps, red flashing lights and my bed shaking.  As you can imagine, being woken up like that was terrifying… a lot of really horrible scenarios involving breaking of doors, kidnapped children, robbers (or worse) and police flashed through my mind.

For a year now, there has been an ongoing argument at our house.  Not about finances, or who should clean up after dinner,  but about stormtrooper helmets.  

I like the original ones.  They are iconic, classic and everyone knows what they look like. The hubby likes the new ones.  His first comment after he saw the teaser a year ago, was “I have to get a new helmet!”  I, of course disagreed.

‘Tis the Season for Star Wars Bling

My hubby is nothing, if not a thoughtful man. Why else would he get me the new Game of Thrones season set, EVERY year for my birthday….   Why else would he happily enable my Star Wars Lego Mini-fig habit?   Why on earth would he rewire all our Internet cables in the house so we, I mean I, could get caught up on Breaking Bad on Netflix before the last season started on TV, if it wasn’t out of love for me?

And if giving your wife the complete series set of Battlestar Galactica “just because,” isn’t romantic, then I don’t know what is…

Well, maybe Star Wars Jewelry…

Since I am a kid at heart, I figured I am allowed to enjoy trick-or-treating as much as the kids do.  But I don’t dress up.  Well, I don’t dress up MUCH.

The trick is to dress up enough to reinforce the theme, but not so much that you take the focus away from the little ones…
