By Monday, we really needed to get started on buying and packaging gifts for the community! With a list of seventy families, plus over 130 personal gifts, we had a lot ahead of us.
And the evening: the evening held great things! For Stephen’s anniversary gift this year, I gave him all six of the Star Wars series, with the promise of watching them together. We have been squeezing them in for dates nights around the trip to America and all the festivities. Monday we went to see Episode 7!
This included one of Stephen’s Christmas gifts—an R2-D2 ornament. Which, at the time, I apologized that it might be cheesy or silly. Instead, he loved it way more than I imagined and nearly every guy that has come into our home since then has seen it on the tree and commented about how great it is.
It was such a fun night out in the middle of everything and Episode 7 was pretty epic, if I may say so myself.
