Stormtroopers and Wookiees approve of this movie.

My family certainly added to the box office revenue with two showings within a 24-hour period. ?And yes, the second viewing is even BETTER than the first.

Trust me: go see it again. And maybe again.

There was so much we caught on the 2nd viewing that we missed on the first. ?There was that one thing… and then that other part where…

Seriously. ?Go again!

Force Awakens Kids

If you wonder about the age appropriateness for this movie, I’ve posted a parental review based on my own children’s ages.

You can check that?spoiler-free?review out HERE.

For those wondering how my youngest handled it: she did great! ?She was able to follow the story and enjoy the movie without any fears developing. ?In fact, she watched all the movies with me this week and now has a bit of a crush on Darth Vader.

This Christmas card is bringing great joy to the universe. Thank you, Stacey! #ohlucy is entertaining me with her knowledge. #starwars #geekparenting #theforce #thedarkside
