The LIG Market in Legos!

So Orion is a complete nut for commerce it seems. He loved the idea of people selling stuff at LIG so much that he made a Lego version of it!

I love how everybody is selling weapons hahaha.

Then I especially loved this expanded version with the winged shopper!  There were several people all weekend wearing wings at the conference, and there was even a wing making funshop, so I wondered if that was what inspired this.  :)

LIG 2012 in Pictures

Running around in the main hall before speakers started.

A rousing game of Red Light, Green Light!

The Lego table.

Making new friends, playing new games.

Orion LOVED selling the geodes we dug at Richardson Rock Ranch!

One of the best things anybody was selling!

Lounging at the pool.

Hanging out in our room. This picture cracks me up.  That is a box of bacon Zola has her hand in, and Akasha looks like she is just lusting after it haha.

We brought the Wii this year!

Playing in the toy room.

Stuffies having a conversation.

Probably my favorite 2012 moment.  The Hilton staff was SO great.  This guy actually put the hoop on and worked it for several seconds!

Got my cards read by the insightful Jen.

Making even more new friends!

Making forts and beds in one of the funshop rooms.

Little siren of the fountain.

Last day picnic!

Getting Ready for Life is Good

Another Life is Good starts tomorrow! I thought Orion would have a really fun time selling something this year, and we had been planning for awhile to get the geodes cut and polished that we dug at Richardson Rock Ranch.  This isn't a great photo, but I think they came out gorgeous!  The one right in the middle kindof looks like a tree and is probably my favorite.  We saved the other half of that one. 

And here are the wool braids I have been working on putting into my hair.

New Desk Setup

Two of my awesome friends came over and helped me clean up Orion's room, and we also came up with this new desk setup that should give him more eating space and an extra computer spots for when friends come over.  You can also see his funny shaved area on the back of his head lol.

Yep those are good!

I did seed testing with several old packets I had. These are zucchini seeds. Everything I tested sprouted. I guess seeds really do keep much longer than what it suggests on the packet. :)

I thought Orion had a dentist appointment, and we left the house to head out, but when I called them to let them know I was running a bit late, it turned out I had the date a week off!!! So what did we do? Go get ice cream hahaha. I had always wanted to go into Fairley's, which is this cool looking old style pharmacy/soda fountain, so this seemed like a good opportunity. Sure enough, they had some really cool displays of stuff, including the postcard below that cracked me up!

Orion Decided He Wanted a Haircut!

Orion has been talking about a haircut off and on for awhile, but today he decided he wanted to go for it.  He wanted something like a mohawk but still long at the top, so Ron went to work doing the best he could. 

Pile o' hair!

Hard to get a good idea of what this looks like on the side, but here is a cute pic of him all done.

Working on the Chicken Run

We have a frame for the run up now, and the girls had to make another visit outside to check it out! :) It is getting just in time as you can see they are getting really big!

Mother's Day!

Look what got delivered from my awesome daughter!

I love going out to breakfast, so that is what I wanted to do.  :)  It was a whipped cream fest!

Orion invented a game where he wanted us to tell him a word, and then he had to figure out the first letter and would write it down.  I had never seen him make letters this small before!  It is amazing to me how many jumps happen that we don't even know about!

I have been putting some yarn braids in my hair, so Akasha wanted a couple as well.  And then of course she wanted me to take some pictures.  :)
