But THIS year, for THIS birthday, my son requested a Star Wars party. And because of his dad's insane obsession with said movies, we have life-size cardboard cutouts of C-3PO, the official Star Wars cookbook, and every Star Wars figure in the galaxy (see what I did there?) just lying around waiting to fuel my party-planning madness.
My only fear now is that my kids are going to expect this kind of hoopla every year. (Fat chance.)
Here are some pics from the big day:
