Yesterday was a day of great excitement because a new delivery of Lego arrived. The boys had been saving up their pocket money and we had ordered from the Lego on-line shop. I also ordered a couple of wee extra items I saw because they were just so cute!
David (4), our little farmer, got this little set. He is a bit young to assemble the vehicle sets himself but was able to put this one together.
James (10) chose the Space Police set with Squid-Man. He is a wanted inter-galactic grafitti artist, seen here being chased by the Space Police!
Calum (7), the biggest Lego fan, who reads the Lego magazine almost every night in his bed, had slightly more money to spend as he earned extra by helping paint the hallway. He spent the whole afternoon painting a couple of weeks ago and did an excellent job. He chose this Lego Oil Tanker set.
The first extra I chose was this ice-cube tray.
It makes the cutest little Lego figure ice-cubes!
It's made of silicone so I'm thinking I might try it out with some Dairy-Free chocolate in it and make some really cute little chocolate shapes.
The second extra thing I bought was a salt and pepper set in the shape of Lego man heads. I can't find the photo of them just now though, and since I'm doing this post in such a hurry you'll need to wait until tomorrow to see them!
We are going out to dinner tonight at a lovely little Inn by the canal to celebrate mine and my father-in-law's birthdays, both tomorrow. I'll let you all know about the food in tomorrow's post!
