Please let those Star Wars...Staaaayyyy!


The party...We had a great time!
We wore Padawan costumes, got light sabers and met Darth.
We ate light saber cupcakes, sipped on sludge from the swamps of Dagobah (sherbet in Sprite) and used the force to put out 'trick' candles!
We ran, jumped and smashed!
They went home sticky, tired and smiling...Mission Accomplished!

Some names we came up with for Poor Dave in the Black costume on a 96 degree day...
Darth Daver
Summer Darth (short sleeves)
Sweaty Vader
Darth Sweaty
He did a great job and lost 4 pounds of water weight in about 20 minutes!

You are such a great, cute, creative and fun mom! I love throwing little kiddie parties and what a great sport Dave is for wearing that costume on such a blasted hot day! Sounds like a great time was had by all!

You are prolly like the coolest mom in the neighborhood. Looks like the kids had fun. Your mom is such a trooper, babysitting, helping with birthday parties, wow, what a gal.

Sheesh, you nailed it!!! What a fun party. So smart to have parents help and what a devoted Dad to risk dying of heat for his kids.

I had to show the photos to Brian... He's REALLY grateful that our boys don't have summer birthdays - props to Dave Vader!

M & E have shared b-day parties for similiar reasons. I have so many great memories of the "themed" ones I worked so hard on & they loved. Do it as many times as you have it in you - they stand out.

The boys' party looked amazing. My hat is off to you for all that planning and thought and to Darth Dave for sweating it out. They things you will do for your kids! I'll bet it was a blast. Your boys will never forget it.
