I love Legos -- LOVE them. Not only did I play with them as a child -- I have purchased them as an adult -- for myself. Luckily, Maddie is very much into Legos too, so I now have a partner in crime. In fact, today I purchased the LEGO City Advent Calendar for her (and me). I love that there is a little Lego project for each day of December!
And the free shipping from Amazon is perfect -- I swear I've been doing almost all my Christmas shopping through Amazon the last couple of years. This way, when I actually do go shopping at the holidays, it's more for fun -- and I don't have all the heavy packages to carry around (this has so helped my holiday spirit!!)
And to get back to the whole Lego thing. Last week Maddie turned 8 and I bought her the Lego Creator Beach House which is awesome! It makes 3 different houses and we've already put together 2 of them. I love this because Maddie really enjoys actually putting the things together (as do I) so a set that can be reconfigured in different ways was perfect for her.
