sorry... more legos...

I know, I know... I take a lot of lego photos... but you have to realize that they're taking over our house!

This picture is from Friday (you know those "other" photos I referenced). I'm not a neat freak but this project Alex embarked on nearly sent me over the edge.
Last April, for his birthday, Alex bought this plane from the Lego store while we were at Disney World. He kept it together for quite some time and he played with it quite a bit. But eventually the modifications began and by summer the parts from the plane were in use in several different creations.

On Friday he decided to rebuild the plane. That's great... EXCEPT that it meant locating the FOUR HUNDRED AND ONE original pieces. And that meant dumping out all of the lego bins onto the floor. It also meant major moments of frustration when some parts just couldn't be found.

He pushed through and built new parts to replace the missing pieces and now today we have this...
The plane is back together again. We'll see how long it lasts this time.

I'm actually quite proud of him... this is his first time to take on a project like this.. he has never rebuilt a kit before.

Nothing else much else here.... tonight Jeff and I watched the Super Bowl while the kids watched the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet. Exciting, huh?

Okay.... I'm heading to the couch!
