"The Story of a Boy, a Girl, and a Universe"

Do you know what today is? We've been celebrating this holiday for many years in our family. We once even talked the church into letting us have a party on this date, complete with Wookie Snacks and Jedi Punch! That's right! its....

STAR WARS DAY!
MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU!
Get it? May the fourth? Well anyway, even if you're not into robots and light sabers you should enjoy this trailer from the original 1977 movie.

 "From the man who brought you 'American Graffiti'.

"Its a big, sprawling space saga of rebellion and romance." 
(Sounds like the next Nicholas Sparks movie!)




Happy Star Wars day!

  5. We heart Star Wars too. Our kids are so desensitized with all the CG stuff in movies now. They will never fully appreciate how cool Star Wars was in 1977.

  7. That is so cool you had a Star Wars party at church. My only question is what exactly is in a Wookie Snack?

  8. I had to admit this to Kearsie last week, but I have not seen this movie. I have also not seen: Goonies, Gremlins, any of the Lord of the Rings, Princess Bride, Labyrinth, and several other "classics" that make people hang their heads in shame....

  10. What fun! Loved the trailer, but watching it now SO doesn't do the movie justice.

    My former best friend (she died several years ago) had all the original Star Wars toys, and I always thought it was so sad, because her mother never let her play with them - she made her keep them in their original packages, realizing that they may someday be collectibles. When she died, all those toys were stored in her parents' basement - and their home is one of those that is now under water in this Nashville flood.

    So sad that nobody ever got to enjoy those toys and now they're ruined.

    Enough of this gloom - MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU!

  11. Sara how could you have not seen The Princess Bride! That is the best movie ever but hey Star Wars was a billion years in the making so how do you top that!

    The narrator cracked me up!! Happy Star Wars Day!

  12. I think at one time I was the only person in America who hadn't seen Star Wars. I finally went and saw it with my little brother. At the end everyone was cheering and I asked him why. He told me that they blew up the death star. I guess I wasn't paying to close of attention.
    I love may the fourth be with you.

  17. I have to tell you - I am laughing so hard I'm crying!!!!! You crack me up - although I just told my husband (who happens to enjoy the SW movies), "Honey - It's Star Wars Day!!" and could hardly get the rest of the line out without laughing ... must have been my delivery - he just didn't find it as hysterical as me!! Thanks for making my night! ;0
