We had a LEGO Block Party tonight - for our upcoming race segment of the LEGO series, we'l be featuring an RV vs. an ice cream truck vs. a jeep carrying a trailer with a few jet-skits on it. Rather than illustrate these, the simplest thing to do was go out and buy them, and put them together. Ultimately, this saved us a lot of time, and as you can see above, it was a bit of fun putting all the vehicles together. As an added bonus, we'll be putting these vehicles in the LEGO-themed display case for the next series. Kids will see them on the screen, and out in the lobby before and after the services.
It was a fun night. To kick off our "25 Days of Halloween," Josh, Madison, Mommy and Daddy sat and watched "Toy Story of Terror," something Josh hadn't seen yet. This is a great entry in the Toy Story saga, lots of fun for this time of year. Next up, probably Thursday, we're watching "Chicken Little," which goes with our theme as well. It's been a while since we've seen that one, and Madison requested it for our movie night.
Of course, it isn't October yet - but as you can see below, we're ready!
Mommy found Boo-Berry, Count Chocula, and Frankenberry for us to to have each morning. This is an age-old tradition now, but we're not alone in it. We posted this picture to the social network, and got a whole lot of 'likes' on it. Everyone loves these cereals, and it isn't really October unless you have them!
We have piano today, but this time, Mommy came along to watch and see. Madison did exceptional today, maybe because Mommy was there... I don't know. All I know is that Madison's fingers were moving quickly up and down the keyboard, particularly at one point where everyone was just learning how to play a certain scale with both hands. Madison had no problem at all.
So it was a good day today. We've got a LONG ways to go for our series launch, but today we had fun doing some setting up. Who doesn't love playing with LEGO bricks?
