we went to a movie the other day.
(GREAT movie, by the way.)
Totally not the point of this post, though.
The point IS that, on our way out the door...
we noticed a large display of lifesize cardboard cut outs of movie characters.
Edward Cullen, Jacob Black, Marilyn Monroe, Nicole Kidman, Yoda and..
At that moment, I had one of the greatest epiphanies of my youth leader life, thus far.
We need a mascot.... we need Chewbacca.
So we got him. A mere $35. I say it's an investment.
He is going to be at every youth event from now until... forever.
He made his debut at our Storying Dinner last night:
I must confess, he is
really a little creepy to have around the house.
Which is why he stays in the office, facing the wall.
...and maybe occasionally in front of a window
(You never know who might be walking by... glancing in the window...)
I'm still working on my Chewy "call".
It is an art, my friends.
Josh has mastered it.
I have not.
Mostly because I feel really stupid when I try it.
I will persevere! and maybe post a video if I ever get it...
We have a lot of fun :-)
