todays tweet: i love the sound of colin digging through the lego box looking for that perfect piece. i love watching him place a lego order on line - spending hours scrolling through all the pages till he finds just the right lego, in just the right size, in just the right color - all for a ten cent piece. i love walking through the house and seeing legos everywhere, including the dyson vacuum canister (and yes, i pull them out and wash them off and return them to their lego home). i will miss these pieces someday but right now i'm just too busy enjoying them.
todays tweet two: and yes, that is colins comb sheath on his dresser that he made at steves birthday party a couple years ago !! fizbo lives on in the sippel house.
todays tweet: the sound of me digging through a extra large lego box looking for heads, hats, arms & bodies has filled the house recently. just a couple more searches left to fill the printer drawer hanging in the boys hall upstairs. it reminds me when steve found this drawer in waco last summer .... good memories, great find!
