Star Wars Day Prep

Daniel and I decided not to do the traditional commercialized American Easter this year. 
When the Little Jedi was born (actually even before then) we decided that we would not do the Easter bunny at all but would still give him a basket from us. 
This year we decided that we would no longer do that, but rather we would just relax and enjoy the day by going to church and having a simple picnic after. 
However we do celebrate Star Wars day and have for oh, at least a couple years. 
With Star Wars day being May 4th and after Easter that gives us opportunity to get some Star Wars themed items (that were out for Easter) on sale and repurpose them. 
Some of the stuff is clear it was for Easter but other things aren't as "holiday specific". So this year for Star Wars day I have a bucket put together for the Little Jedi as well as one for Daniel. 
I have Darth Vader heads filled with candy for the Little Jedi to hunt for and we will be sure to watch the movies (amongst other things I am sure)! I will share the actual baskets and gifts later, don't want to spoil the surprise by Daniel seeing things early.
Unfortunately I do not have as much done for Star Wars day as I was wanting to. 
This whole week has been terribly stressful and busy so I was not able to put focus or effort into making decorations or theme specific snacks, but such is life right…
