The Death Star and Pumpkins

Well I know you are thinking.."The Death Star and Pumpkins"? what on earth??? Well those were our weekend events!!

Friday night we went to see Star Wars in Concert at Cowboys Stadium (aka The Death Star). A full orchestra played the music from all the movies while clips from the films flashed across the very large screens. It was quite an event! There were also movie props stationed around the stadium for the fans to check out. Many of the items had never before left Skywalker Ranch (George Lucas' homestead). The original manuscript for some of the music was on display and it was quite amazing.

Here are some pictures from the night! We had a great time and my amazing, Star Wars obsessed husband really enjoyed the show.

Here is Cowboy Stadium

This is Lord Vader of the Dark Side.

Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) narrated the evening.

I have on my Chewbacca tee and Brian is wearing his Emperial shirt.

And since we were already up passed our bedtime AND hungry, we ended up at Denny's. I have now decided that I much prefer Denny's over IHOP. Maybe it had something to do with the Pancake Puppies they serve. Like hushpuppies, except not cornmeal, pancake batter!! There's a picture below of those also!! I think those should be the next fried delicacy at the Texas State Fair in 2010!!

Pancake Puppies, rolled in cinammon sugar served with syrup!

Here is Brian waiting for his coffee.

Now on to the Pumpkins!! Threes years ago Brian and I began our tradition of carving pumpkins for Halloween. Usually the weekend before Halloween we make a trip to the store to select 2 perfect specimens to carve up. Here you can see our 2007 creations and here you can view the 2008 creations.

Have never heard of pancake puppies, but now I want to try them :) Maybe you should set up your own stand at the next State Fair! :)

I heard about the Star Wars concert and wondered if my 4 year old would like it since he loves Star Wars. I just didn't want to buy tickets and have him ready to leave after 15 minutes. :) Glad you liked it!
