A (rather unorthodox) girl's guide to Star Wars

I heard around the internets that today is International Star Wars day. May the "fourth" be with you and everything. Har har. I've had these photos for a while now, and today seems like the perfect day to share them.

Along with some awesome vintage little people (you know, the cute but choking-hazard sized ones) and a super-sweet old school speak and spell, the girls have inherited their dad's old Star Wars toys. Now there are many little boys out there (and plenty of little girls, too) who will see these photos and know exactly who each and every character is and what every gizmo on every ship does. My girls have pretty much no clue when it comes to Star Wars aside from knowing who C3PO is and that an Ewok is a cute little bear thing. But hey, that Ewok Village is a super cool fairy fort and the ship (I don't even know the name of the ship) is a vehicle on which Canada Geese take their revenge for invading their no-fly zone. And don't even try to tell them that Rancor is someone you wouldn't want to mess with. They'll tell you he is just misunderstood and that, like my favorite three year old, his bark is worse than his bite - nothing a little swaddling and rocking won't cure. Yeah, dad has some work to do when it comes to teaching these two about the ins and outs of his childhood favorite movies.

 "You dare to land in my territory??"
 Goose attack!
 Poor little Rancor. Do you need a hug?
There there, little buddy. We'll find someone who will return you to your former days of ferocious glory.

This is so funny! I don't know anything about star wars either.

OK, it time for Chris to teach them about the Millennium Falcon, Ewok Village and Princess Leah. I'm so glad that they can get into their dad's toys. This is such a cute post and the girls are so very creative.
