Halloween 2010



I gave birth to an entire crew of stormtroopers. The kids know their own names but I have no idea who these costumes are supposed to be. I just shelled out the money.

Kiss a Wookie, Kick a Droid

The following is a guest post from Don (the hubby) and it does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the owner of this blog. I have a slight concussion (don’t ask!) and Don will be posting for me a bit this week. xoxo & Merry Christmas to all!

Okay, I took over the blog for a bit. I am going to get this posted. heh heh. Have you ever had a song stuck in your head and cannot get it out? Have you ever had that same song stuck in the heads of four or five people at the same time? Well that is what is happening around here right now. I saw this video over on YouTube and thought it was great. So great that I HAD to show it to the boys. At one time I had 4 boys looking over my shoulders watching it so intently I was quite surprised. They now have it mostly memorized. Even the youngest will break into song if you prompt him. Are they driving us nuts? I really don’t know. It doesn’t bother me, but I am sure if I had a concussion it would not be pleasant. The best part is that even though the whole song is about Star Wars, the tune is a medley of John Williams show tunes (Jaws, Indiana Jones, E.T., and Star Wars). When our 12-year-old was listening I asked what song it was and he first said Star Wars, because of the words being sung, then he stopped and listened and realized that it was something else. He was surprised and amazed. I think the music he has had really made an impact. If you have boys that like Star Wars they will love it!!

Star Wars & Indiana Jones Amigurumi

The above pictures deserved a post of their own! The Star Wars amigurumi can be seen here and the Indiana Jones amigurumi can be seen here.

Jack, Oreos & Star Wars


Don took the kids to see Star Wars: Clone Wars and when they got home, I told them they could have sandwich cookies and milk for a snack. They weren’t “real” Oreos but the store brand duplex kind with vanilla on one side and chocolate on the other. Jack started digging in and while only eating the chocolate sides, he excitedly proclaimed, “I only like the Dark Side!” Don and I could not stop laughing. He is a huge Darth Vader fan. Yikes!
