We celebrated O’s birthday this past week– it was a whirlwind! We had a family dinner with a cake (the trial cake), his favorite soup (which I made differently than usual, to which he said, “I guess I only liked this soup when I was six. Now that I’m seven, I don’t like it any more”) and gifts… and then we had his party with some friends over the weekend.
There was a Millenium Falcon cake. (That’s right, nod along, just as if you knew that was the Millenium Falcon.)
We encouraged folks to wear costumes.
I was a prototypic bounty hunter. The boys said, “Oh, you’re Zam Welsley.” Of course I was.
The girls were both Princess Leia. Of course they were.
P.S. Those aren’t the droids you’re looking for.
