Is it Halloween? No, just Wednesday.  
It makes a mother feel much safer knowing that crime is being fought on a daily basis within the walls of her home.

Sometimes I get to be Catwoman, complete with the ears and tail, but I draw the line at Poison Ivy.  That girl's crazy.  And there's nothing like a former acting teacher Mummy teaching her 4 & 6 year-olds the finer points of unarmed stage combat...

This represents a solid 3 hours of work.  It's the Lego Batcave.  *crosses off one NYresolution*

Your kids are so freaking cute! The pics you post always make me smile :)

Now post a pic of yourself as Catwoman *g*

Not a chance. My Catwoman falls to be a little on the chubby side, even if the interpretation is berrter than Michelle Pfieffer's...:)

Oh, I'm sure you're a fabulous Catwoman! And what woman doesn't feel a little chubby? It's all good :)

*intensely jealous* I need Batman legos...

If you lived closer, I'd invite you to come put together the Batmobile, the Batplane, and the Jail where they put all the bad guys. It's enough to make your eyes cross, and the pieces are TINY!

I have the Hogwarts castle Lego set on order for Ethan (Batman)'s birthday, complete with DM and his quirked eyebrow...

I once spent $20 on a lot of minifigs (3 or 4 of them total) just to get a Ginny. She and Draco are locked in a hug on my desk at home as I write.

That's (the lego hug) hysterical. I love it. 20 bucks was totally worth it for the smile factor!

Your kids are extremely cute, and it looks like you all have a lot of fun together!

OMG! So cute! Your boys can feel free to come fight crime in my neighborhood anytime.

Isn't it interesting how Legos are made for kids, yet it's the parents who are always putting the damn things together? Hogwarts Castle. Yep, been there, done that. It's now back in its box after months of very little play, sad. However, I nicked Draco, and he hangs out with me in my study. My kids never took to Legos much. *looks at buckets and buckets of that stuff*

I can't wait until your boys start K'nex. *evil grin*
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on January 4th, 2007 01:09 am (UTC)
Yes, we got SIX different boxes of Legos for Christmas, four of which haven't even been opened yet.

K'nex sounds ominous. *braces self* But what could be worse than stepping on the tiny Legos in the middle of the night?!?

Your boys are just adorable! Where's the Catwoman pic? *giggles*
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on January 4th, 2007 01:01 pm (UTC)
Non-existent, to date. :)

That Batcave is brilliant! I have always wanted to be able to make something (anything) with lego but alas, the most I have ever accomplished is the Leaning Tower of Pisa (and the lean was unintentional). I had a five-year-old give me that ‘you’re a moron’ look just the other night.
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on January 4th, 2007 03:42 pm (UTC)
Can't let the five-year-olds sense the insecurity. That's when they pounce. We've got soooo many left to put together. I'm trying to be brave about it.
