If you're looking for an example of a family tree, we've got one for you: five generations of Carrie Fisher's family history with a palette inspired by none other than BB8, the cutest little robot ever.
Some of us are bigger Star Wars fans than others in this family, and although many girls love Star Wars, this girl... not so much. It's not for lack of trying... I've watched the best two (supposedly) of the original six movies, as well as the newest two, but I just can't seem to get into it. My Harry Potter fandom is almost manic (and has been growing since age 10), whereas my Star Wars fandom hovers just above lethargy (and started at age 21). (I even walked out of The Force Awakens with 15 minutes to go! Read about that here.) Conclusion? I think maybe I missed the boat by not getting started early enough for Star Wars. After re-watching the two of the original trilogy with me, even Kesler will admit that a lot of the pull is the magic of childhood.
Luckily for him, baby F will not have my same excuse.
After seeing a baby a week before Fenton was born as Yoda for Halloween, complete with mini crocheted light-saber, Kesler asked my mom if she'd make F. one. As a surprise for Kesler for Christmas, F. and I did a little nerdy photo shoot (with the help of my mom on props!) and a potential fan was born. Of course... we also included some Harry Potter props so he's started plenty early there as well.
Which of your pet obsessions do you hope your children will remember and follow in your footsteps?
