September 16, 2013 We Have A Completed VW Van

We procrastinated some and spend some time waiting for parts, but its now complete.  I have really enjoyed this time with my son and am looking forward to our next build.   The LOTR set has a third of the pieces so it will be done fairly quickly and we can get to our Christmas set.  When I was not sure TJ was having fun, we would stop for a day or two and he would flop down on the couch beside me, saying, "Legos?"

The Whole Top Is Complete

TJ and I completed the rest of the top.   Now there are only two steps left.   We have the front of the bus where it will take on its unique VW appearance and then the wheels.  This particular adventure is almost over.

Kudos For Mom!

I am putting up this post to contain all the well wishes and congrats for my Mom.   She is doing fantastic at quitting smoking.   We are on Day 2 and she's had a total of 3 cigarettes so far.   She has a patch but does take it off to smoke.   However, that's only been for THREE cigarettes!   When things were really really stressed, she was on as much as 4 packs a day.   Dad is quitting too and I am proud of him as well, but he never reads the blog.      LOL       So I would LOVE it if you would put a message for her in the comments.   :)

The Adventure Continues...Finally!

I know, I said I wouldn't take a long time again but I blew it.   Finally, TJ and I started building again last night and we have about three night's left!   I have to say, this model is really getting heavy.   After this one we have a Lord of the Rings model that should be nothing at 400 some pieces.  Then we have another biggie with a winter cottage that I picked out for a Christmas decoration.  And in some awesome news, Mom is on her SECOND day of nicotine patches!!!!!!

But that is not what you guys came for!   So here are the pics of our latest build.   We have the camper top down and as you can see, it does pop up and down.
