No plans

We spent the days after Christmas just building Legos.

As fun as it may have been, I am not as obessed as my boys are. I am the sorter. Commander is the builder. The older boys drift between helping, wandering around and crying about not building fast enough. Shag is the destroyer.


Moose is the most constant. He does like to build, but I think they have not figured out that once you build them, that they have to be careful with them. But oh no, they fly these Star Wars ships around like they are regular toy ships. Eventually they crash and break, but the crying is minimal, they know that Commander likes to build them too.

We were lucky that Nana and Papa took the boys early one night and we went to dinner. What could more romantic then a after dinner trip to Target. We wandered around and somehow found ourselves in the TOY section. What are we doing there with no children in sight, habit I suppose.

Anyways Commander spots this PRIZE. He looks so giddy. Recalling the top dollar amount that he saw it for on-line. Explaining that it is such a good deal and we need to buy it. I admit it was almost 50% off. But the way he was admiring it, I knew right then the passion the boys have for legos is deeply embedded in their genes.

Maybe this weekend something more productive can happen other than the Lego building. We need to get this laundry done and out of sight.

Have a Happy Weekend taking down all your decorations and cleaning up from the Holidays.

I always liked Legos as a child, but they sure don't make many Lego sets for girls. I hope Kenyon likes them once he gets older, I want an excuse to build them!

Happy New Year!!

I haven't played with Legos in eons. Looks like fun though. :)

I wish my laundry was sorted, folded and stacked so neatly. Sigh...

I got some Legos from my parents a few months ago that were my brother's some 20+ years ago. Why they kept them all this time, I have no idea. Probably because they spent a mint on them! Ella and Keith love playing with them together too. Its great to get the kids into playing with Legos. Theres so much imagination to be had with them!

Oh Legos, my nephews are crazy for them. My son is 3 and is just now discovering them... he is really into Lincoln Logs. Loves building houses!
laundry... it's never done...i'm headed to fold mine now!
have a great day,

yeah...I'd call an evening at target alone without kiddos pretty romantic too!! :)

I loved Legos as a kid...I hope my boys will discover the fun someday too!

Hope you had a good weekend and got all of that laundry done...I'm ignoring a pile in the chair in our living room as we speak!!!

That is hilarious. Sounds like something my hubby and I would do.

How fun! I have a 20 month -old son so I am waiting a bit before we bring out the legos...but I remember loving them as a kid

Yes, building things must be in their genes. We just got a few small lego things this Christmas. I tend to veer away from toys that require me to do most of the work. ;)

Girl, that is some kinda laundry pile you've got going on!!

Mine might look like that if I actually washed it. ;-)

my family would have gone crazy over that lego purchase! the batmobile came into our life when daddy found it at target for over half off. he was commuting on bike at the time - i can just imagine how he looked riding a mountain bike, carrying a huge box of legos.
