You could call this late, or you could call this just in time for Orthodox Christmas. Or you could call it whatever you want. I’m too tired for a proper post due to some rough nights with the kid.
Either way, this features Legos, Mario inside Kuribo’s Shoe, Pac-Man, and other 80′s stuff. Did I mention Lego?
Well, we attempted our Lego castle as you can see above. I don’t think we did too bad of a job for our first try, especially if you factor in that we were using the big little kid’s Legos and did have any arch pieces.
To be honest, my wife did a lot of the building and architecture on that castle. I mostly handled the front gate. Our daughter, of course, made sure Winnie the Pooh and Tigger had their proper place in things
Sadly, not long after this picture was taken, Pinky Pie My Little Pony crashed her giant Ice Cream truck through the mighty castle wall and took the throne by force, turning the once mighty kingdom into a Red Lobster. She immediately felt remorse, promising not to crash her truck into the castle again because “her wheels would fall off.” Unfortunately, the damage was already done.
Watch Out Pooh!
I spent a good portion of my day yesterday washing Legos (and a ladybug, as you may see in the above picture). It was tedious, but worth it, as I now have a ton of Legos to play with. I suppose my daughter has some Legos to play with too .
Why was I cleaning Legos? Well, a year or so ago my cousin gave us a big box of Legos. They have sat in our basement all that time collecting dust. Every time I would go down there with my daughter she would point to them and say, “Those are my Legos. They need cleaned.” We wanted to get them in some warm water and soap before our daughter played with them. We just never seemed to have the time. Yesterday I finally had a chunk of time.
So, I filled up a big bucket with some hot water, some dish washing liquid, and all the Legos and began to scrub. My wife helped me for a bit before the heat got to be too much. My daughter “helped” too. It took me a good two hours, but I finally got them all scrubbed and placed on the towel for drying.
The funny thing is the Lego set came with three Winnie the Poos and two Tiggers (you can probably spot them in the picture). When I brought them inside my daughter and all the Winnies talking with each other. Apparently, they were walking to Red Lobster (guess where we ate Saturday night ).
Anyhow, I’m jazzed to have this massive collection of Legos. My goal is to build a castle with them. If I do, I’ll post a picture. I love having kids!
