A Star Wars Saturday!

I awoke with a great idea for a Saturday project.  As you've seen in past blog entries, our BOYS are Jedi Nerds!  Let's make some Stormtrooper guns! . . . I exclaimed.  Off to Lowe's we went.  What I thought would be a cheap project turned out to be $$$$$ PRICEY!  $50.00 later we were headed back for home. 

Mandi and I decided that PVC piping would be the best bet . . . durable, and Stormtrooper worthy.  The BOYS helped sand the pipes for painting.

Sweet Mandi stayed by my side and was such a help.  She also gave me intermission hugs . . . THANKS HONEY!

The finished product.  Not bad for our first time.  It was worth every penny to see the smiles on their faces.  They haven't put them down for the past 3 days.  What a fun day . . . a memory that will stay with Mandi and I forever.

READY . . . AIM . . . LASER!

A tired Stormtrooper!  Thank you Jake and Kolby for being such fun and imaginative BOYS!  Mom and Dad love you!

What a fun family project. I'm sure the boys are in Stormtrooper Heaven. Unfortunately, due to the lack of interest from their parents...our kids don't even know what Star Wars is all about.

What a good memory... it doesn't surprise me that you went all out and made the coolest stormtrooper guns on the planet. These kids will always remember the time you spent with them. Can we count on our little Jedi's coming to trick or treat at Pebbles?

I am so impressed that you used your incredibly creative juices and made such a fun project. Those guns will be collectors' items someday. Or at least something that your boys will take with them when they get married. You should make them capes too. :) heheh then they can go take out the garbage or get the mail in them. Oh wait, Eric...
