Angeli has a special reminder for you.
A rabbit is not a toy. It’s a living, breathing, ten year commitment that requires a lot of love and attention. If you want to give a child a rabbit for Easter, you can’t go wrong with a chocolate bunny or even better, a Lego bunny!
Happy Jewel Day!
I forgot to mention last week that our blog is 1 year old! I just want to thank all of you for visiting our blog. We hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we do taking them. A big THANK YOU to Eric of Lego a Day and Lego Girl of World of Minifigs for being our top commenters!

The original pot head:
John Chapman, also known as Johnny Appleseed 1774-1845
A generous man who loved animals and people. He planted thousands of apple trees and, oddly, he used a pot for a hat.
Happy Johnny Appleseed Day!
Happy Valentines Day everyone!
I want to take you back a few years ago to my most memorable Valentines Day. Peter proposed to me at the park where we shared our first kiss 3 years earlier. I was surprised and ecstatic! I had to call everyone immediately to share the great news. The first people I called were my parents. My dad answered the phone and I screamed, “I’m engaged! I’m engaged!” My dad was not thrilled about this phone call. For some reason he thought I screamed, “I’m in jail! I’m in jail!” Ha ha ha ha ha!
It was a fantastic day. One of my best memories!
Life is so good with you, my sweetheart! I love you!
Happy Superbowl Sunday! What are you looking forward to? Baltimore winning? San Francisco winning? The food? The commercials?
I’m looking forward to hanging out with friends and family. Even though I don’t really watch the game, I always have a good time at these parties. I’m sad to see the season ending. I love seeing Peter so excited when football season approaches. For me, it means cooler weather and baking autumn desserts while I hear the game on in the background. It also means our favorite time of year, Christmas, is coming soon. I think tomorrow I’ll bake Peter a cake, he gets a little depressed when football season ends.

Our advent calendar is a gingerbread house. We bought it last year but this is the first time we are using it. It’s cute but the compartments are a little too small for my liking. The largest compartment barely fits this minifig bag. Instead of buying a Lego advent calendar, I thought one I could fill on my own would better fit what I wanted to do for my kids. Some days will have toys, some days will have chocolate and some will have fun Christmas activities.
For those of you with small children, are you doing an advent calendar? What kind?
