Star Wars Thanksgiving!6:14 PM
Saturday Lauren and Kevin held their Star Wars Thanksgiving party! I honestly wish that I had money to buy a proper costume, but then I would have a hard time deciding on who to be. Probably R2D2 because he was my favorite when I was little and watched all the *cough*Good*cough* Star Wars movies. Okay the new ones are not that bad, but what can I say? I like my classics. Instead I went to Meijer and bought a T-shirt from the little boys department, I LOVE IT!
Look at Princess Lei, she's gone blonde! And look, R2D Tripp! I made Kyle wear a Star Wars T too, which is funny because he never saw any of the movies! I know! I used to know all the words to the movies when I was 14 and then I haven't watched any of them in almost ten years because Kyle won't sit through them. Low and behold, he did at Lauren and Kevin's party! *High-five Lauren!!* Now he wants to watch them all! I can't wait to sit him through them.
Classic yes. We had a blast! I sat and listened to Lauren and her friends banter on the Wookie/Ewok situation in Return of the Jedi. George Lucas replaced the Wookie's with Ewoks because little kids were watching the movies, little kids like me! Okay, years later, but still! I have quite the obsession with Ewoks, I have an Ewok plush that is residing at my parents house, as well as my own copy of the Ewok movie : The battle for Endor (no, Kyle won't watch that either). But, you have to understand my obsession with teddy-bear like animals, I even used to get excited over the Snuggle commercials as a kid! I'd go "Ohhh!! Teddy!!" (My dad still reminds me of this at family gatherings). I do love me some Chewy though, and I do agree that he should have gotten a medal at the end of A New Hope.
If you have not seen it yet, behold the Millennium Falcon cake!! Lauren made it all by herself and it was quite yummy (I think Kyle had two pieces). The Mr Potato heads were pretty festive as well. I can honestly say that I am a huge fan of themed parties. I think they are sooooo underrated! I like feeling like a little kid again, hey, it's the small things in life, no? Just to make it more adult, throw in some PBR and call it a night :)
