Playing with wood scraps

Handy Randy Grandpa is finishing our basement and left us some wood scraps to use for art projects. 
Previously we made tall paintings with them (see here):
We paint a lot here so I was interested to see what Logan would do with different materials. I have him some glue, markers, buttons, pom-poms and paper circles...
He coloured for a while by himself

 Then he asked me to draw him on a block, then Kalia...soon he had our family lined up.
 then he glued some pieces together and got me to help by adding a clock, doors and windows. 
He told me that the pom-poms are birds sitting on our roof




 Once things were looking the way he wanted he put the art supplies away and put the family in one of the craft supply holders --"It's the car. You're driving Mommy."
 "It's time to go camping -load up the car!"


 "We're here!"

 Then he asked for his cousins to join us...so we got the rocks he had previously painted and added gloogly eyes to.

 And everyone needed a drink..so he got me to draw a sippy cup, juice with a crazy straw, coffee for Daddy and tea for Mommy on the circles.
 I went into the project thinking Logan was going to create some art sculpture but instead it became a very imaginative role playing game. Logan's three and a half -it just goes to show that you don't need a box of fancy plastic figures and action figures; just some rocks and wood! :)

As for 8 month old Kali, she's just happy hanging out!

Yo Gabba Gabba Live 2011

  Yo Gabba Gabba live was in Toronto again last week. We went and saw them live before as a birthday present for Logan's second birthday. Kalia's Godmother found tickets for more then half off so we decided to go check them out again! Kalia stayed home with Grandpa and Grandma and skipped Logan's nap for an awesome afternoon! 

Having a Tim Horton's smile cookie
 We got there early to pick up the tickets. Logan waited patiently for over an hour to get seated.
 Logan brought his Brobee doll and DJ Lance Rock Hat and we all wore our YGG homemade t-shirts

 Wearing our DJ Lance Rock glasses that they gave out

 And the show starts....

 And wow -Leslie Hall! Man, she was looking good! Love her!

 I love Bugs!


 Walking around during intermission

 Logan dancing and singing along
 "Party in My Tummy" -always a favorite!

Biz on stage!
Logan: "Do you think I could do that? Can I go there too?"
Mom: "Ummmm...sure! Let's go see!"
 Logan got to dance on the side stage!



 Going up with Daddy to meet DJ Lance Rock

 Dancey-Dance time!
 "It is Fall. It is Fall. The leaves are falling down!"
 Snow inside!!!


 Waving bye :(








 Logan loved the mess left behind! We left with pockets full of tissue leaves...now what to awesome things can we do with them? Hmmm...
What a great show! We'd love to see them again when they do their next tour -maybe Kalia will be old enough to join us!
