Sit back, relax & welcome to the Harrison world

Welcome to the daily happenings of the Harrison Family. It's crazy here, but we have a lot of fun. Mamma is clearly a little out numbered by the male species in the house, but it sure keeps things interesting. In our lives, you'll find lots of bugs, blocks, trucks, loud banging, clanging, running, hurdling off couches and beds, endless amounts of energy, no sleep, laughter from the belly, boo-boos, trips to the dr, walks to the park, did i mention no sleep? We hope you enjoy the ride as much as we do.

Brady's 6th Birthday Party...Star Wars Style

OHHHH, the Star Wars Party!  This was great fun planning for because there are sooo many ideas out there for this.  Brady and Breck have been Obsessed with Star Wars this year and know every fact there is to know... I get corrected ALL the time by them on Star Wars trivia:)  Turning 6, Brady is still in that awesome fantasy world where 'all of this' can easily become real in the right setting.  My mom helped out tremendously with sewing and cake making.  Brian, my fabulous husband signed up to play Obi Wan Kenobi ... and secretly Darth Vader.  (the boys still believe the REAL Darth Vader visited that day!)  The Jedi Knight Training Academy Party began with light saber training, followed by an Obstacle Course Mission, and then... the surprise battle with the ULTIMATE... Darth Vader.  We ended with food and cake and the finally the Darth Vader Pinata.

We figured 6 year old boys would be way more interested in the activity at the party rather than fancy food... so we went simple in this area.  We turned the Dining room into the Star Wars buffet with Ewok Snacks (cheesits, yogurt covered raisins, m&m's and pretzels), Grape light sabers (grapes on wooden skewers with wine cork wrapped in foil as the handle), Imperial Pizza, Yoda Soda (lime sherbet and sprite) and of course the cool Darth Vader light saber cake.  Brian has all of his original Star Wars toys, so we used those as decoration along with some home made decor.  Pretty simple.. but got the 'feel' across:)  After the party AKA Jedi Knight Training Academy was finished, each Jedi received  their official certificate...(i think I liked those more than the kids did!)
