Coolest Mommy Award!

Ok, so I am awarding myself the "Coolest Mommy Award!" for a couple of weeks (don't worry Moms, it won't be long til I screw up and will have to give the award back for bad behavior..)

Anyway - Lane is OBSESSED with Star Wars.  Not this new Clone Wars junk, but old school Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Millennium Falcon REAL STAR WARS.

All we could find was the Clone Wars junk on backpacks and lunch boxes...   Not really interested.
(Ok ok, we did find these totally rockin Chewbaca Backpacks   but I couldn't bring myself to drop $50 on a backpack that wouldn't hold a folder...  I read the reviews..  LOL) 

So I got a plain old Target brand backpack for $8.99, a plain old Target Brand Lunch Box for $3.99, some inkjet iron on printer paper for dark colors (it was $7.99 before my 40% off coupon at Michaels, for 5 sheets) and a little free Google Image browsing...
And voila - Coolest Mommy Award Material!  :D

I'm not going to lie, it wasn't easy to iron on the images with out melting the bags.  LOL  In fact, if you looked close enough at the dark gray seam to the right of the Star Wars logo, you'd see where I did infact melt the lunch box..  But what ever, he is happy.

And my action shot:
(I didn't do anything crafty with Andra's backpack, though she is still carrying the soft lunchbox I made her last year...)
