I hope everyone has a very happy holiday and that Santa brings them what they wished for most. 

May the teets of the Ach-to milk creature always provide you with much blue-green milk to drink from!

I am up early this morning to dig out so we can make it to church.  Got another 20 cm of snow last night.  Still it is a gorgeous white Christmas.
All the best to everyone!

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to some of the best nerfherders (said with affection!) in the galaxy. I hope that you get a great Star Wars gift this year...but more importantly than that, a chance to spend time with friends and family.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have a Radio Flyer landspeeder to assemble...

I got a bunch of loose, complete vintage figures to fill in some gaps in my vintage figures. Also went to TLJ for a third time as the power went out mid-afternoon and we had nothing to do at night, so we all went to the movies!

Merry XMas and a Happy New Year to all!  :)` :u:

Got a few Star Wars gifts (well... to be honest most of my gifts were Star Wars themed ;D ).

- Star Wars The Last Jedi Visual Dictionary
- Star Wars The Art of The Last Jedi
- Hasbro Tie Silencer
- Hasbro Resistance Ski Speeder
- Star Wars Rebels Season 3 - Bluray
- Metal Earth AT-ST model
- Metal Earth Slave I model
- TLJ Rey Candy Pez
- TLJ Praetorian Guard Candy Pez
- TLJ Lego AT-M6 mini-model
- Some chocolate treats
- Rogue One 12" value figures: Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor, Death Trooper, Stormtrooper, Darth Vader

My daughters got some Forces of Destiny dolls. Leia Endor with Wicket for one, Rey and BB-8 for the other. I kinda expected they would not want play with them since they don't have any SW figures at all. But they were a smash.

Quite unexpectedly, these were really the highlight of their XMas this year. To a point where they asked me to go and get 2 more with part of the money they got from their grandparents. So I bought them Jyn Erso and Sabine Wren on December 26th to complete the lot. I also gave them those 12" value figures I got from my father. So they now have bad guys to go with their dolls. :-)

One cool thing: on the evening of December 25th, they started working on a cardboard spaceship for their dolls. I let them organize themselves, looking at how they worked things out, glueing boxes together and cutting seats for the pilot pod and beds in the storage area. I helped them the next morning, secured everything with a hot glue gun and shaped the wings and engines. My daughters wanted to draw the Rebel symbol, so I helped them with these.

Result is quite nice. So proud of my daughters on this. And really enjoy looking at them play with their dolls. :-)

We're now rewatching all the Star Wars saga. My 7yo didn't see any episodes apart from E1 and E7. They really want to go see E8, we're planning that for January 6th, so I told them we needed to watch all the episodes before that time. We've watched E1-E2-E3, now we're watching Rogue One tonight.

A side note. Watching SW with kids brings a whole lot different perspective. I think people (and mostly hardcore SW fans) need to step back a little and view these movies for what they were intended to be: fun stuff. Everyone take these WAY too seriously. I also had my doubts watching TLJ on the first viewing. At the third viewing, this time with my oldest two daughters (16yo and 18yo) I can say I really enjoyed it a lot, except the Fathiers scene, and my daughters enjoying it more than they did for any other SW movie tells me the main audience for these movies has now shifted towards a younger audience. My daughters really loved The Last Jedi. The humor, the scenes, the storytelling. They say it's much more actual then all those old boring SW movies that have no pace and rhythm at all.

So guys, let me tell you one thing: Star Wars is evolving. We old timers are not the main audience anymore. Accept it. Evolve. Else you're gonna be like those old grumpy grandpas who keep telling youngsters their own time was far better than nowadays.  ;D

Star Wars is telling us something. But most fans fail to listen.

Let the past die. Kill it if you have to.  ;) :tongue0024:

That ship you made with your daughters is pure magic.  Love it. 
Take lots of pictures and video of your kids playing with it. 

Enjoy the rest of the holidays with your family and have a great New Years.

Thanks! Indeed, I wasn't expecting my daughters to even play with these dolls. I bought them but was worried they wouldn't even want to open them and pondered for a while about reimbursing them and finding something else for XMas. So glad I didn't. Now we're doing a SW movie watching marathon. LOL We have to stop today as we'll be celebrating the e Year, but tomorrow we're good to watch ANH!  ;D :artoo:

A very nice post JP. It is really heart warming to see the kids playing and creating their own things.

I also love the cardboard spaceship! Cool stuff.

And great comments about the evolution of Star Wars :)`
