Hello. My Name is Kristin. I'm a Star Wars Fan.

C & I met in June of 2008. October 2008 came and went. We dressed up like Lois Lane & Clark Kent. We got married & October 2009 came and went. We dressed up as EFY counselors. October 2010 is now upon us. We've got our halloween costumes all figured out [face paint and blue spandex pants included], but we've decided to FINALLY take part in a traditional Halloween activity: carving pumpkins. And I dare say, we outdid ourselves this time.

The past 2 weeks, I've been gaining wife points by watching Star Wars episodes 1 and 4-6. I only knitted through 2 of them. And I'll admit, I actually really like them. Once I figured out that they have a story line, the characters are easy enough to remember, and there really isn't any gore. I can actually see why people enjoy them. [I don't consider "Star Wars" a lifestyle, for heaven's sake. But I'll watch them without weeping or wailing.]

And just to seal the deal on how much of a Star Wars fan I really am, please check out our galactic jack-o-lanterns.

He's carved into a little pie pumpkin. I think he's adorable. :)

How about you? Got anything fun cooked up for this Halloween?


  1. Awesome. I saw the original at the original Cine Capri. Love Harrison.

  2. Whoa! Love the pumpkins. I'm married to a die hard fan too! He has willingly has carved pumpkins to fit other people's whims for each and every one of the 8 years of our married lives. This year, I think I'll show him your awesome pictures so he can do a pumpkin just for him! Thanks!!

  3. So my husband peeked over my shoulder while I was reading your blog....guess who wants star wars pumpkins next year??? Plus we will probably all have to dress up in star wars fashion. Awesome.

    Our halloween tradition is usually snagging free burritos from chipotle then going trick or treating. Since halloween is on a Sunday we will probably just do the ward trick or treat and then watch charlie brown and the great pumpkin :)
