we went to a movie the other day.
Saw Invictus.
(GREAT movie, by the way.)
Totally not the point of this post, though.

The point IS that, on our way out the door...
we noticed a large display of lifesize cardboard cut outs of movie characters.
Edward Cullen, Jacob Black, Marilyn Monroe, Nicole Kidman, Yoda and..

At that moment, I had one of the greatest epiphanies of my youth leader life, thus far.
We need a mascot.... we need Chewbacca.
So we got him. A mere $35. I say it's an investment.
He is going to be at every youth event from now until... forever.
He made his debut at our Storying Dinner last night:

I must confess, he is really a little creepy to have around the house.
Which is why he stays in the office, facing the wall.
...and maybe occasionally in front of a window
(You never know who might be walking by... glancing in the window...)

I'm still working on my Chewy "call".
It is an art, my friends.
Josh has mastered it.
I have not.
Mostly because I feel really stupid when I try it.


I will persevere! and maybe post a video if I ever get it...

We have a lot of fun :-)
