I sense a disturbance in the force....

The boys went to see the new 3D version of
Star Wars episode 1, "The Phantom Menace"
last night at midnight.
They decided to make their own costumes....

Can you guess who they are?

Chris already had the huge cape that I made him years ago. It is
to dark to see the rest, but he looked really awesome.
It's a great cape because he can also be
Harry Potter, a Hobbit, a wizard or anything else that uses a large cape.

I didn't think Matthew would really wear this when he
arrived at the theater, but he did and I guess he was a
huge hit. The guy who bought the $70 storm trooper
helmet was defiantly jealous.

Two thumbs up for my creative kids!!!

I should just get used to the fact that I live in a family
of nerds. They wanted me to come too and dress up as
Princess Amidala......hum....
the thought was actually quite appealing.....
I might be turning into a nerd too!!!

May the force be with you!!!

Being Crafty....

Last week I went to a wedding shower.
I went to Target and looked at her registry and found this really
great cheese grater. It is a lot bigger than most
graters I have seen plus it has a storage compartment
in the bottom that is detachable.

I couldn't just give her a I remembered seeing
these wooden heart spoons in the dollar section,
found this great black and white kitchen towel with
silverware on the front, and some Hershey kisses
to put inside.

I had this black and white flowered paper
at home and decided I would wrap just the sides and the bottom
of the grater.
It was like wrapping a present but just leaving one side open.
I then filled it with candy... folded the towel and stood the spoons up inside
with the candy. I tied the ribbon to the towel
along with the Cricut cut card...
with her initial on the front.

I think it turned out cute and fun...
and she loved it.
