Sean's Star Wars Party

As I had mentioned in my previous post, Sean's birthday was the kickoff to a very busy month for us. So I am just now getting around to sharing some pictures with you. Sean is a huge Star Wars fan, and so for his 7th birthday we decided to have a Lego Star Wars Party. I borrowed some really cool ideas from people off the internet and we came up with some stuff ourselves. We made Yoda Soda (green punch), Wookie Cookies, Death Star Donuts, and Pretzel Lightsabers (pictured above). The party turned out wonderfully and the kids had a blast! Derrick created the R2-D2 out of a trash can and some foam - pretty cool huh?

This is a picture of the kids in their costumes. Don't you just love baby Andrew as Yoda?!

Derrick created very large Luke and Darth Vader Lego characters. He's very artistic, that hubby of mine.

Derrick also made the Death Star Pinata and Lightsaber pinata stick.

Here are Sean, Juliet and Luke (with his lightsaber!) in the landspeeder that Derrick constructed.

The Nutcracker

Hello everyone! I admit that I have been a bad blogger as of late. I hope that you all have had a wonderful holiday. It has been such a busy month for our family. My son Sean's birthday was in late November followed by Thanksgiving. And then December was packed with all the usual holiday activities, including Juliet's participation in her ballet company's production of the Nutcracker. This year she was a Party Girl, Arabian dancer, and Candy Cane. She adores the Nutcracker and it is truly a joy for us as a family to watch her.
