"In a galaxy not so afar away, a baby
boy was born. From the beginning his
energy drew the attention of the jedi
council, who named him Ben. They knew
he was the chosen one. In the 8 years that
followed his birth, young ben has been
learning the powers of the force.
Recently though, the Jedi knights have
felt a strong disturbance in the force.
many jedi knights have been lost. The
very future of the jedi order is now in
The jedi council has called upon young
Ben to seek out future jedi. Your young
padawan’s presence is requested to complete
jedi training on december 13, 2009.
The trials will begin promptly at 2 pm
at the Fouch system of the galaxy.
Please advise the jedi council as soon as
possible at 381-0478 as to whether your
young padawan will accept the challenge
of the trials. May the force be with you!
I'm a total dork. I know this. No need to comment about it ;-) Ben LOVED this invitation though...he especially got a kick out of the fact that I wrote the details "in normal language" on the back of the invite "for you grown ups who just don't get it". Oi. ( BTW...I can't take 100% credit for the language. I searched the web for invitation ideas, and then pieced a couple of other ideas together. Sigh...I'm not alone...there are fellow dorks out there!)
Coming up with Star Wars games was lots of fun too. Of course, we whacked a pinata, as always. But this time, we converted a store-bought soccer ball pinata into a "Death Star" by wrapping it in aluminum foil.
