Boba Fett and Chewbacca Robes – Wedding Gift from their Best Man

 

Remember the groom bestowed upon his groomsmen the colorful light sabers at the rehearsal dinner the other night?

 

And you saw the beautiful wedding couple at the church and the Pittsburgh Zoo and their reception at the PPG Aquarium.

 

 

I took the flash drive with some wedding photos to them earlier today and I got to see them open this gift before they head out early in the morning for a warm beach honeymoon.

Here is the best man Jason’s  gift to them-       STAR WARS hooded robes.    Chewbacca and Boba Fett.

One of the most creative wedding presents I’ve seen! There was a STAR WARS bottle opener tucked inside, too.

I asked permission to post them sporting their new robes and it was granted.  Thanks Shawn and Celeste.

 


Best Groomsmen’s Gifts in the Galaxy- Engraved Light Sabers

Groom-to-be  Shawn (tomorrow August 8th) bestowed these unique gifts upon his groomsmen at the rehearsal dinner tonight.

ENGRAVED.

Jason, Davide and Jason test them out while Shawn looks on in the intersection of the beams of light.

I felt like we needed a swell of Star Wars Music.

Most unusual and creative groomsmen’s gift I’ve seen.

Star Wars Lego® Figures Photo Found on my Phone

Either Michael or Jack, one of my grandsons, took this photo of Star Wars figures..  I found it in my December Photo Stream in Aperture tonight.

I hadn’t seen it before, didn’t notice it.  I know I didn’t take it.  The kids love to use the electronic devices.

Any it was all set up and photographed (on the piano I’m fairly certain) and here’s their shot.  Guest  blog photo by one of them.

I’d left the mini Light Sabers in a gift box with a friend’s gift but she mailed them out from Pittsburgh in a card so they got to Ohio in time for Christmas.  Need light sabers  to do battle!!  Thanks V.

Something about mini figures invites creative and imaginative play.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Launch

Just when I thought the Weekly Photo Challenge was over as 2011 ended….it’s NOT!  This shot from my 2010 archives.  No flash. Taken with morning’s available light, in the family living room. His mom is getting out of the way as she has just taped up the flaps.

Launch conjures up outer space in my mind, a launch pad-  although I feel proud all three of my children and grown and launched.

Here’s Michael, patiently waiting for lift off.  He sure loves empty boxes.  The costume a Stormtrooper from Star Wars (Clone Wars?)   but in this case it’s an astronaut.   You saw Michael just after Christmas in another empty box (here if you missed it)

All Systems Go, Houston! Ready for Lift-off!

And if you go to this link you can see other bloggers’ responses to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Launch

Their links are in the comments section plus you can see the example photo of hot air balloons shown to inspire our responses to the challenge. Always an interesting variety of interpretations to the challenge and many excellent photographers’ work.


Millennium Falcon Wish Comes True 30 Years Later

When Mark was four or five all he wanted was the Millennium Falcon.

It was the one toy of childhood he truly longed for and did not receive. Oh how he wanted it!  He LOVED Star Wars.

And I looked at it all those years ago and thought it was a lot of money at the time for a big hunk of plastic (at least that is how I remember it)  So I didn’t buy it for him. Obviously, this topic has resurfaced over the years.

This past January I happened to sit next to a nice man and his wife at a friend’s 60th Surprise Birthday Party.  We were chatting and he said he owned a Vintage Toy store- Where the Toys Are  in Canonsburg PA.

“By any chance do you have a Millennium Falcon?”,  I asked.

“Why, yes!”, he said he thought he did AND sure enough he emailed me and sent me photos.  His friend (the 60th birthday guy was his childhood friend) delivered it right to my home (in the original box!)  in February and I was so excited.

I kept it until Mark’s birthday but it was really hard to keep the surprise.  I asked Matthew if he thought Mark would be happy to get it  after all this time and he said he thought so and sure enough, look at Mark’s face in this photo.

A couple of weeks ago the Where the Toys Are man and his wife and the 60th Birthday man and his wife were in Zagreb and they called me on their cell phone  from a 300 year old bar and I got to hear Matthew playing guitar and singing, 4550 miles away from Pittsburgh! Happy Happy Happy all around.  Millenium Falcon in Original Box

Seems like you were just born, Jack.

Here’s one of my favorites from  Christmas with the new Star Wars Lightsaber.

Happy Birthday and I’ll see you soon.
