It’s kind of all the small people in my house can talk about. Overshadowing even THE BIG MOVE . . . on team kid, at least.
They have watched the trailer only four hundred and sixty seven times.
Gus and Bobby have November and December birthdays just two weeks apart, and all the same interests, and all the same friends, so they’ve always shared a birthday party.
We are a dedicated backyard birthday party family, but with the movie opening so close to their birthdays, they really, REALLY wanted to go to the movie with their friends. But those friends are spread out all over LA, so when we have parties, we invite whole families, which minimizes the driving burden. There was no way I was going to ask moms of many to drive one or two of their kids across town to drop them off at our house so we could take them to a movie, then have them turn around and come pick them up a couple hours later. I know I wouldn’t be willing to do two hours of driving so my kids could go to a three hour long birthday party.
Then Bobby had THE BIG IDEA.
Bobby: Why can’t we go around in the van and and pick everybody up?
Me: Because that would take the whole amount of time for a party.
Bobby: What if the party was IN THE VAN? Could we do that?
Me: Do people have parties in vans?
Jim: Yes, but they’re called bachelor parties.
So, we’re not having a bachelor party. But we are going to have the party in the van, I guess. It is a great van. I’ll let you know in a few weeks if there’s a reason people don’t usually throw eighth and tenth birthday parties in their vans.
AND, since Star Wars is all my kids have been thinking about, I decided to make a whole batch of Star Wars printables for the shop, just in time for you to get your Christmas shopping done before Advent, if you’re into that sort of thing.
It’s possible I have gotten a little carried away.
These can be printed at home on your printer. Or you can visit tinyprints, mpix, or Shutterfly to get
them made into prints, posters, throw pillows, mugs, candles, Christmas stockings, etc.
I actually made six of those square quotes, because the kids kept coming up with more quotes they wanted, but Etsy will only let you upload five files per listing. So, I figured I’d give you number six here on the blog, for free!
And since that’s totally random, I also made this Little Morning Offering for you guys, also free, and not available in the shop.
(BB-8 is supposed to be an “O.” It should be read O God, I offer you . . . )
Update: By popular demand, here it is as a square, excellent for throw pillows:
As with all my printables, you are welcome to save the images to your
computer for your own personal use. You may print the images and / or
upload them and have prints made for your personal use or to give as
gifts. First click on the image to bring it up in a new window, then
right click on the image to save it to your computer. You may use my
images on your blog, just please link back to my blog. If you would like
to sell my images, please contact me first.
So that’s that for now. Nothing to report, house-wise. Enjoy your Sunday!
Hi! I’m Kendra.
For twenty years now, I’ve been using food, prayer, and conversation based around the liturgical calendar to share the lives of the saints and the beautiful truths and traditions of our Catholic faith. My own ten children, our friends and neighbors, and people just like you have been on this journey with me.
If you’d like to learn more about what Catholics believe and why, and to be inspired by saints from every era all over the world, you’ve come to the right place. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with the prospect of how to teach your kids about the faith in a way that’s true, engaging, and lasts a lifetime, we can help!
