StarWars at the Library


We have a fantastic library here in our city and we are excited about the events that they have coming up this summer. Last week the kids got dressed up in their StarWars duds and we joined other enthusiasts at the library for a showing of Return of the Jedi. We met Kristal and her boys out front and then headed up the elevator to the movie. As we stepped off the elevator Darth Vader and his crew were there to meet us. He shook hands with all of the kids. We were all a little star-struck. He immediately won Anna Kate's heart when he shook her hand and said, "Well, Princess Leia, it's so nice to see you again." Smitten. And you can tell by the admiring expression on her face in the picture (you can click on the image to enlarge it). Before the movie started, all the kids got to say who their favorite character was. Guess who got her vote? Yep. Darth. Later she explained, "Well Leia has always been my favorite...but Darth Vader was just SO nice that I HAD to vote for him. But I should have voted for Luke Skywalker because no one else did. I bet he was sad." That girl is always thinking.

The Fam

We just got back from spending the week in Lubbock with my family. My middle sister, Brigitte, and her family are about to head back to Asia for a few years. So the rest of us got together to spend a little time together while we still have the chance.

Here's a picture of us all as we were.

Bottom row: Max, Anna Kate, Alayna. Middle row: Chad holding Jake, Granna holding Trinity, Papa holding Ava, Grace, Angela holding Caleb. Top row: Erin, Brigitte, Kevin, Chris.
Chris and Angela have Alayna, Caleb, and Ava. They live in Tennessee.
Kevin and Brigitte have Grace and Trinity. They have been in Lubbock for the better part of a year, and are heading back overseas soon.
We have Max, Anna Kate, Jake, and a little Chick-n-Mini on the way. We live in Oklahoma City.
Papa and Granna live in Lubbock.
