another lego day off

yesterday, on my day off, Caedmon and i decided to play with legos, which is a pretty regular activity around our house.  he mostly plays with the lego "guys," and you can see here what he came up with:

i, on the other hand, was hearing the voice of hank williams jr. in my head, and looking forward to monday night, so i made this:

I love the Toy Story 3 legos!! *sigh* Bill just put our legos back in the attic. We had to clean the house for company (see his blog post on that)

okay Legomaniac... here's my question of all lego collecting questions: how do you store them? by color, by building set, by brick size? give me some ideas b/c we're about to come into some more legos in the next few weeks!

Perhaps all the gold and black ones should be kept in a special box just for them! Just saying.

Crafty,

we have them organized into sections. we have one huge bin which we call "special" pieces, which are actually irregular pieces. we have another large bin of regular bricks (all shapes and sizes...just the normal ones). then we have a bin of just flat peices...a bin of just lego people and accessories...a bin of just wheels....a bin of just angles pieces...a bin of windows and doors...a bin of clear pieces...and a bin of construction vehicle pieces. i don't think it matters on which basis you organize, only that you organize! half of the fun (for me) is organizing them and helping the kids learn the importance of this.

wow, I just searched and found your organization response to me. That is quite an interesting and bin-filled way to organize. I'll have to think it over. I believe a FB poll is in order. thanks and I'll talk to you later.

ps I, too, like blog comments ;)

i will give you a new name

in our church, we are continuing with a series called "letters from Jesus," in which we are looking at the seven letters in the beginning of revelation addressed to seven churches in asia.  we are imagining what it would be like if we were to receive a hand-written letter from Jesus to our church.  what would it say?  how would we be encouraged?  how would we be challenged?  we've looked at three of the letters now.  this week we looked at the letter to the church in pergamum.  the letter to them includes some harsh criticism of some of their behavior, but it also says that Christ understands how difficult their situation is.  and in case they feel like they are stuck in their sinfulness, Jesus says something amazing to them:  i will give you a new name.  the world gives us so many names, doesn't it?  our parents, of course, give us our birth names.  but the naming doesn't stop there.  it continues right on through elementary school, high school, and into t

Milinovich Family Christmas, 2019

merry Christmas, yinz guys.  we've been marking our advent journeys with an annual video now for the last twelve years!  for this latest installment, we used the Tractors' version of "Run, Run Rudolph," as a metaphor for all of our running around, and i hope it shows that we've had a real blast this year, preparing for Christmas.  you'll see scenes from getting our tree, making cookies, concerts, impromptu dance sessions, making snowflakes, and much more.  enjoy. 

bad haircuts (for a laugh)

everybody needs to laugh.  one good way i have found to make that happen is to do a simple google image search for 'bad haircut.'  when you do so, some of the following gems show up.  thankfully, my 9th grade school picture does NOT show up.  otherwise, it would certianly make this list!  please laugh freely and without inhibition.  thank you and have a nice day.
