My blog has been neglected for a bit – seems like life gets so busy as the holiday season starts up, I can’t believe it will be Thanksgiving in four days. It seemed like Halloween was just a couple of day ago. Sometimes, it seems like the older I get the less I enjoy the holidays – I feel kind of like a Grinch this year. It makes me sad to see Christmas decorations going up in stores the minute Halloween is over. Oh well, that’s the way it is.
Our two grandsons have really been into playing with Lego Blocks this past couple of weeks. Whenever they come over after school it is the first thing they want to do.
It is really refreshing when kids want to play something besides video games. They do enjoy Nintendo and Playstation, too – but the past few weeks they have been having Lego Mania. You can see in the above picture I still haven’t put away the two Halloween Candles on the fireplace – I think they’re cute and haven’t gotten into Thanksgiving mode yet even though it’s just days away!
Just listening to them while they build and play is fun. You can see how their minds are working and what sort of things they have going on in their imaginations. Both of the boys are so different – they invent and act out stories about totally different things. Darrin was whistling to himself while he was building.
Actually, I really enjoy playing with Legos myself! It is almost like knitting – making something block by block instead of stitch by stitch. I built myself a really cool Lego house with a garden and everything.
