Background info: Ian is 7, Kaiden is 6, liam is 4, and nana is…never mind how old (as dirt) I am!
so we are on our way home from a movie and Liam asks:
“nana? Where do we live?”
i reply “we live near Trent”
liam: “no, we live in canada”
ian and Kaiden: “we do not live in CANADA!”
liam: “yes-HUH! I know because of the maple syrup we eat on pancakes and waffles”
ian and Kaiden snicker and snort. Ian: “Liam do you live in china?
kaiden: “do you live in America”
ian: ” well look at that American flag!”
kaiden: ” that means you live in America not Canada”
ian: UNITED STATES of America! We are a m e r i c a n s!”
It’s quiet for a minute and then Liam says just loud enough for the boys to hear:
“I live in French”
And groans erupt from the back seat along with much head slapping.

Tag you are it!
I know the snaps aren’t the greatest but the subject is!
setting the scene.. 3 boys ages. 7, soon to be 6 and soon to be 4. Common interest LEGOS. Buying Legos, building Legos, racing Legos, leaving a lone lego on the floor to be step on at 3 am (old lady potty run) and nearly taken out by, eating lego treats, watching lego movies…I think you have the picture now.
the gift bags:
Included in the bag was a coloring book that Carin printed and I stitched down the center to hold it together (yes you can sew on paper!)
i spent an entire day making almost 200 lego crayons:
And several lunch hours cutting out lego magnets:
we tossed in a little jar of bubbles that were super cheap and all we had to do was open the package! Which after the crayon day, was about all I could manage!
and the attire:
Carin purchased shirts in their favorite colors and printed their name and mini figure with their birthday # on an iron on transfer.
The cakes: lord Business, Batman, and superman. Dairy free and made by Carin.
Build a lego car and then race it!
Lego mini figure cookie decorating:
Lego figure picture taking:
Be your favorite lego character: lego building: And lego toss, musical chairs, lego carry and of course a Hard Hat Emmet piñata: The kids had a blast. And were almost as tired as the adults at the end of the day!
