The Legos Are Here! The Legos Are Here!

Actually, we got them in the mail about four days ago but we haven't had time to build!   I have been hopping keeping up with my recovering aunt, Mom, Dad, TJ, two dogs and two rabbits.  So I finally made time yesterday morning and we got some more done.   We are building tonight as well but I am not sure it will get posted until tomorrow.

Its Looking Like A Volkswagon!

We have to take a break from the van and start TJ's LOTR set.   Turns out we are missing two pieces from our van!   I ordered it from Lego but I am not sure when it will arrive.   So this is the last post for a bit.  But don't worry, as soon as the part gets here, we will be starting again.

The Night Without a Title

I am running out of ideas for titles.    LOL     We are starting to put the structural details on the van so that its a bit more sturdy.  I will be glad since poor TJ knocks off Legos just by touching it.  LOL   We now have all the side windows and tomorrow night the back door will be in place.   I have my eye on a haunted Mansion for October!

OMG, There are Cloth Curtains!

Well, today we finished up to the roof on one side of the bus and got the windows in.  It looks like the windows for the other side will be tomorrow.  I am not sure, but I think that is a fireplace with a mirror on the side of it.   It will have a painting over it when its done.  But what really kills me is the package I opened today had teeny tiny curtains made out of fabric.   TJ and I have decided to do the Pet Shop after this and his LoTR set.   That will give him a bit more practice before we tackle the London Bridge.   We also have our eye on a train and the Fire Station.

Look very closely by the first open door and you can see that the white door opens below the sink

Tonight's Build

Yeah, yeah, I know we took two days off.   I got lazy!   But TJ asked me today if we were ever going to get started again and I remembered why I started this.   We now have a driver's door, passenger door, front seat and steering wheel.   We finished Book 1 and into Book 2.   It looks like we are halfway up the side of the van.

We Have A Lava Lamp!

We also have two seats, a clutch, a gas pedal, a brake pedal and a clutch pedal.   Our table is in, complete with wineglass.   It looks like tomorrow we will start building up the front of the bus and we should be finishing book one. 

A Sink, A Seat and A Potted Plant

We ended up taking two days off this time and then I forgot to post these last night.   But we made a lot of progress and we'll be back at it tonight.   So that means you get two posts in one day!   TJ wonders at the advisability of having a sink over the oven but that's the way this is made.     LOL     I love the tiny touches, like the potted plant at the back.   The seat even moves around!

The Night Where We Have Doors

We were working for over an hour last night and TJ was having so much fun that he didn't notice.   He even told me that he can't stand to do this for more than an hour and was shocked when he looked at the clock.  We started at 9 and were done by 10:30.   I am glad he is enjoying himself.   I told him thank you for playing with me tonight.    :)

Another Night, Another Build!

After the great news today, TJ and I were eager to get started again.   Looks like we are beginning to get the kitchen going.
