Snowmen in a Series

It looks like we won't have be having a white Christmas in Hometown, Texas this year.  This week marked the first day of winter and we had record setting highs.  Who doesn't love temperatures in the eighties in December?  Don't get me wrong; I am not complaining.  After all, we were blessed with our fair amount of snow last winter. 

EK recently completed this simple set of snowmen.  Their simplicity allows the personalities of the snowmen to shine through.

The Reason for the Season

The greatest man in history had no servants, yet they called him Master. Had no degree,yet they called him Teacher. Had no medicines, yet they called him Healer. He had no army, yet kings feared him. He won no military battles, yet he conquered the world. He committed no crime, yet they crucified him. He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today.

Thank you, Jesus.

Merry Christmas!

How the Guys Spent the Morning

EK has seen Lego videos on YouTube for a long time.  Many of them recreate the movie using Legos.  Many of them even use all the same audio and sound effects.  For some time now, EK has wanted to make his own video.

This morning while mrs. mil10 was out, the mil10 boys played.  The video shown above is actually our second attempt.  We wanted to also incorporate the Star Wars theme song by John Williams, but we were limited to selecting the theme music or the lightsaber sounds.  EK opted for the sound effects. 

Please pardon the poor photography.  mr. mil10 was the one taking the pictures while EK posed the minifigures.  For some reason Legos are always difficult to photograph for the mil10s.  This time was no exception as you can see by the poor focusing.

Enjoy the Lego Star Wars production of Obi-Wan Kenobi vs. Darth Vader.

To the Mavs from the Mil10s

High above the fans in the American Airlines Center scrolls a message from the mil10s. You have to look closely due to the limitations of cell phone photography, but we were there! Come on Mavs, we are cheering you on to a win!
