Dear Uncle B and Aunt K –
Thank you for our gift certificates to the LEGO store. We’ve been wanting to use them since they arrived in the mail on Monday, but Mom made us wait. Something about Grandma in the hospital being more important and Vacation Bible School taking up her time, and mumbling something about handling bulls in china shops have kept her from taking us, but we finally wore her down and headed there yesterday afternoon.
We informed her that since it was OUR birthday money, we could buy anything we wanted.
Thanks for helping us get around the “No Sponge Bob” rule.
And thanks to your generosity, we’re adding over 800 more LEGO pieces to our collection!
JJ was indecisive…
But it’s because he was trying to get the most bang for his buck…
Oops – let’s try that again –
We were really excited to leave the mall and go home and start building, but Mom started squealing when she passed the the 75% off sale at Bath and Body Works. We thought it might be better to stay outside. There were a lot of other men sitting on benches, too, so we think we made the right decision.
We’ve had so much fun building and playing with our models.
You guys are the best!
With love and thanks,
P.S. Mom said to say “thank you” for four hours of quiet while we were playing and that it was worth every little piece she’s stepped on.
