Track 14 from the album “Hot Air” by Recess Monkey:
Have you grown apart from someone
you used to really know?
I had a friend just like that
a long, long time ago
Oh, His name was Lando
I hadn’t seen him for a little while,
he took it kind of hard
Won the Millennium Falcon from him
in a game of cards
Oh no, Won it from Lando
Battle of Hoth and we had to take off so
That’s where we’ll go- and stay with Lando
I looked him up in the phonebook,
only name there of its kind
I need a place to chill out
with a couple friends of mine
On the go, So I called Lando
Said if you want to see Cloud City,
you can come by any time
Don’t worry ’bout Lord Vader
’cause he ain’t no friend of mine
He said so, That Lando
But after those asteroids
And this protocol droid
I cannot avoid that I’m
Getting annoyed with these guys
But we’re staying alive
With hyperdrive (punch it Chewy!)
Land the Falcon there look at Lando’s hair,
I can’t believe we’re suddenly together
He whisks away his cloak this ain’t no joke,
Lando’s looking like someone I’ve never seen
He said “I’ve just made a deal
to keep the Empire out of here forever.”
And then the doors open up,
Darth Vader’s there,
Lando looks like he used to be
So when I walked into the chamber
something didn’t seem quite right
Next thing I knew
I was totally encased in Carbonite
Head to toe, Nowhere to go
Nowhere to turn
When you’ve got freezer burn
And when will I learn
To never ever trust this guy
That Lando, Oh Lando
Stuck in this mold
And staying real cold
But I’ll never get old
So I got that goin for me it’s nice
Thanks to Lando

On day 1, Chewbacca arrived along with a letter. This letter explained that Raleigh, our elf, sent Chewie to come visit and help us count down! The best part was C-man fully believed it! (I love this age!)
Day 4- Chewie set up several of the “Star Wars Guys” on the fireplace hearth. (Yes, most of those are original 1970’s guys that were daddys!)
Day 5- C-man woke up to find Chewie in the den watching Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. He had a bag of microwave popcorn and a note that said he’d already started the movie but maybe tonight we can watch it together!
Day 6- Chewie had a box of Star Wars gummies (found at Kroger) and had opened ALL the bags of gummies! He had made a mess! Guess what was for breakfast that morning…
Day 7- Chewie brought coloring sheets of some of his friends, Yoda, C3PO and R2D2. He had already colored himself!
Day 8- Chewie had all the ingredients on the counter along with our Star Wars cookie cutters ready to make cookies!
Day 9- Chewie brought a Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope book and CD. This was great to listen to on the ride down to Disney!
Day 10- Chewie made goodies! During the night, he dipped pretzel rods into melted, blue, candy wafers to make light sabers! We took those with us to Disney!
Day 11- The morning we left, we found Chewie in the car with a bag of goodies for C-man to enjoy: Star Wars jelly belly jellybeans, an M&M Darth Vader “toy”, and some candy.
I had so much fun with this! It was fun to try to come up with new, creative things for Chewbacca to do each night. I’m glad I only had to do 11 though! I was running thin on ideas.
If you try this for your family, or have done it in the past, I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
My son and I want to go to Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios so bad we can taste it! But, since we are going to WDW this fall for 8 days, dad says we can’t go to Star Wars Weekends. Pretty sad. Maybe next year.
- Seeing Disney characters (Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, etc.) dressed as Star Wars Characters (Luke, Leia, Darth, etc.).
- Star Wars parades.
- Darth Mall- shopping for Star Wars “stuff.”
- Meeting Star Wars Characters.
- Jedi Training.
- Star Wars Dining at Hollywood & Vine.
- Last, we can make Star Wars Storm Trooper Pops!
First, C-man put the sucker sticks in the end of the peeps. Then we melted the chocolate and dipped the peeps in swirling off the extra chocolate. We let them dry on wax paper as the “real” Stormtroopers looked on!
