Is there Crying at Star Wars?

Stormtrooper Tissue Cover

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.

Despite my cheese carving endeavors, I have never been much of a pumpkin carver.  We do the basic monster faces every year, and even that is under some protest on my part.  Having spent countless hours playing with the kids and their Darth Tater, I am however, really good at sticking plastic arms and legs into fake produce.
