Aaron is getting into legos so...

We brought out his big brother's. I forgot how many sets Austin had. We have all the Harry Potters to play with now.

This Lego Studios Steven Spielberg Make a Movie set he got is awesome:

  • This set is a parody of the San Diego scene from the movie Jurassic Park: The Lost World.  I found out this about it from Lego: 
  • According to press releases at the time, the set marked only the second time that Steven Spielberg had lent his name to a merchandise product. Spielberg wrote the foreword to the director's handbook. The releases also stated that "all of Mr. Spielberg's proceeds from the Moviemaker set will be donated to two charities: the Starbright Foundation, which helps seriously ill children, and The Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation, which preserves testimonies of Holocaust survivors."

Star of the Week!

Aaron get to be star of the week at school this next week so he got to take home this little lizard named Rex for the weekend.  He wrote in a journal about the adventures he had with Rex and also took pictures to put in the scrapbook for school.  He got to make a poster about himself too.  My little superstar!

Here's Aaron at gymnastics with Rex:
Awesome open gymnastics time here for kids to burn off holiday energy!

My Christmas Cards 2012

I sent out these cards this year:  Papyrus does such a good job.

This one however, was from Hallmark and the stache is removable/wearable

This one was my favorite this year. I sent it to our friends who are motorcycle lovers.

I sent out a great Boston Terrier card too that looks like this for the dog lovers:

Happy 43rd my love

We got to hang at Dave's favorite bar downtown-Rock bottom for his 43rd birthday this year.  Here's the cake:

Friends could enjoy pool and the Ducks game which was on T.V.

And after food and drink we went down the street to boiler room to karaoke.  It was a great night.
