Well at first I was embarrassed of all this 'stuff' but how can I have a Darth Vader and not have stuff? Right?
This is how creative he is - he has made every ship out of paper. This is the ex-wing fighter. Isn't that great?
So what did the old family do when I was gone? Andy got his blue belt in Choi Kwang Do - I missed it, but I'll see his next ones. He's over half way to black belt - about another year and a half!
It's official he's a blue belt!
Andy's dad is into Star Wars. His uncle is into Star Wars and since he was coming home for Christmas I decided to get Andy into Star Wars. And boy have I succeeded. My daughter and I bought the movies and we watched Star Wars all that week. He has been saving his money and buying figures. We got some planes for Christmas and his birthday.
I think when he does his martial arts he is thinking Star Wars (not sure that is good or not). So we are into Star Wars - everything. And yes - he and his uncle bonded. And you know what I like about Star Wars - I understand it. It's not like Pokemon or Bakugons. And the truth is - everyone understands Star Wars and it is like a universal language everyone knows and can relate too.
And the best part about Star Wars - it is about good and evil and good wins out - just like it SHOULD!
So when I was gone he decorated his room with Star Wars - we need some more things, but the Star Wars room has started. I had made some pictures of the internet and my daughter laminated them.
My daughter bought stickers for his room - glo in the dark.
His room is busy - the towels are up on the windows because the sun comes in his room too early!
And here is a new picture of my niece. Cutie pie.
Isn't she a doll - she looks just like her aunt!!!!!!!!! Just kidding she looks like her mom.
Allan Alda - Wikipedia - Happy BIrthday -
"I still don't like the word agnostic. It's too fancy. I'm simply not a believer. But, as simple as this notion is, it confuses some people. Someone wrote a Wikipedia entry about me, identifying me as an atheist because I'd said in a book I wrote that I wasn't a believer. I guess in a world uncomfortable with uncertainty, an unbeliever must be an atheist, and possibly an infidel. This gets us back to that most pressing of human questions: why do people worry so much about other people's holding beliefs other than their own?"
I didn't know this about him myself.
Does anyone remember the movie Same Time Next Year? With Ellen Burstyn. It was kind of cute.
