LEGO Creativity Tour Review

Back in October, I mentioned that I was given four tickets to the LEGO Creativity Tour in Columbus , Ohio, for November.  My husband and I took our three kids, and we had so much fun!  It was in downtown Columbus at the Columbus Convention Center.  They had it in a very large room sectioned off into several smaller sections.  The show lasted three hours, which was plenty of time to see everything. When we walked in, we were greeted by some awesome LEGO sculptures.  They had super heroes, animals, and favorite LEGO characters.  I think I have a photo of at least one of my kids next to each one. HELP!  I'm being stepped on by a tiger :) Using the Force on Darth Maul.  His favorite was actually Chewy, which you can see in the background. Uh, oh.  Miss Koti Beth is being eaten by a dinosaur!

Advent Calendars For Kids

When I was a kid, I had a plain calendar that had pockets to move a  little stuffed animal.  One year, I had one with chocolate inside each little box.  I still remember just how nasty the chocolate was, but I was thrilled that it was chocolate!   My kids love having a fun advent calendar each year.  Of course, Christmas is their favorite time of the year, so they love having a visual representation of exactly how many days are left until Christmas.  Here are my top picks for fun advent calendars for kids.  I wish I could get them all of them, but they will have to rotate through them each year.
