Check out our Star Wars family costumes! We did Star Wars “A New Hope” Princess Leia, Han Solo and some twin baby ewoks! I’ve loved Star Wars since I was a kid so it was a lot of fun to finally make these costumes. I made my husband’s and my costumes. Han Solo’s gun belt was made by Brian for me. The ewok costumes were bought. More details later!

This is at Disney’s Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party in Disneyland. It’s the one time of year that adults can wear costumes to the park! We really enjoy it.

Sleeping ewoks!


In February this year, I took a trip to see my family in Charleston, South Carolina. One of the things we did was go to Botany Bay. It’s an old 1800’s plantation and beach turned wildlife preserve. Here’s some of my photos from that day.


You’re not allowed to remove anything (including shells) so people feel the need to somehow arrange the beautiful shells they find,… perhaps to prove that they have been found? Who knows. You see them hanging on trees and arranged at the end of the beach.

I think the driftwood trees are very beautiful. Some have been worn away by the ocean so much that they look like silk.
