Let Your Light Shine

The Battle at the Beginning of Time

The angels with yellow wings are God's angels, either fighting the evil angels or are flying up to heaven.

The angels with green wings are the angels of satan; some of their wings are being removed as they are sent to hell (the red pit at the bottom).

The Person in the middle of the candle is God.

The angel all in yellow? He is St. Michael the Archangel.

The evil angel with the yellow dot (lower left corner) is Lucifer (satan, the devil).

Mama got bit by the Lego bug!

A few months back, Legoboy picked up a Sorry game from Once Upon A Child - lego-style (not official legos, but they are compatible). Well, the game was a dud.

Not to mention the thing I call a Giant Lego Tick that can move another's piece across the board.

Well, I think the Giant Lego Tick bit me.

Because I saw THIS at the Lego Store - and fell in love:
TREE BEARD!!!!!
Just over 9 inches tall.
Yeah, I want the Tower of Orthanc set now - just for him! 

While waiting to save up money for it (Legoboy's job), it's just been niggling at me --- a friend recently gifted us some discretionary money for Legos and I thought, "Why wait?"  So we picked up a few small things today - all on sale - BONUS! The rest is going towards the Tower of Orthanc set.

He got an eagle to assemble and a Chima keychain - and a small bucket from the Wall of Bricks (discounted because we re-used our tub).

Oh, and it's double VIP points this month too. So he can save up even faster! (normally 1 point for every dollar spent; $5 gift card when 100 points are reached).

Me? I had fun ;) This is what I get for having a Lego-maniac for a child ;)
FRODO!
I'd've picked up Tree Beard if they had him in stock.
Our Lady is connected with Frodo... read the books and note the dates!
Springtime scene!
(perfect fun for the half-price!)
Summer was not available; Fall and Thanksgiving are too much $ full-price.

Montessori Oompa Loompas

He was supposed to be doing some grammar work.
Instead - or in addition - he did this: 






Yeah, we like the ORIGINAL Willy Wonka movie around here ;)

Too Much Time on Our Hands

Or not enough time for proper mental release over the course two very busy weeks - and this is the result:

building the Tower of Orthanc

Still building

showing one of the pieces he wants to use
(note the vacuum in the background -
he put that together too)

It crashed.

SIGH. Can't get him to just SMILE. 

Re-built.
But refuses to just SMILE. 

Yep. That's a smile. Sigh. 

Almost there!

Tree Beard - in 2 dimension.
