the lego ketchup bottle

i've been holding on to these pictures for a bit, holding out hope for a home playoff game as an occasion to share them, but since that doesn't appear likely, i thought i'd go ahead and bust them out today.  here is heinz field:



and here is the lego heinz field that my kids and i made:




it wasn't as easy as you might think to put something together that both stood up and (somewhat) resembled the home of the steelers.  you can see below that i tried to emulate the spiral staircases at the scoreboard end of the stadium, the scoreboard itself, and the tiered structure of the building.  remember that i am not normally inclined towards these types of things.  it was hard enough just finding enough black and yellow and gray peices to make it work!  but it was a fun activity for me and the kids. 





















go steelers!

Very impressive - how long did that take you to do. My son, whom will be 31 this year played with lego before he even went to school. His wife bought him the VW lego last year and it is so cool. Happy New Year. ~Gail~

Perhaps noting that the cell-phone has pretty much become part of day to day modern life, which typically has to be carried in louis vuitton handbags , and noting the stressful activity which trying to fish out a cell-phone that has gotten mixed up with other Genuine leather contents can be, the louis handbags comes with a specially made cell-phone compartment, so that one never has to spend precious time and get stressed trying to fish out a cell-phone that has gotten mixed up with other Epi Leather contents.
