Legos Bring Kids Together – Eternally Grateful For Legos

A local father to a boy who used to go to the same school as my daughter dropped me a message on Facebook asking if my boys liked Legos. Of course my reply was, “yes they do!”. Later that day, to my surprise, the local friend dropped off this gigantic tote of Legos. I honestly am amazed at how many kind, thoughtful families there are in my town. This particular man and his wife are absolutely sweet, they both are friends with me on Facebook and I admire them lots! I am now eternally grateful to them because dropping these Legos off meant more than just items for us! Legos Bringin Kids together for Ages

I honestly had to pick my jaw up off of the ground when he arrived to hand me this huge tote of Legos. This is a lot of Legos. These were dropped off on a weekend when no kids were here, I couldn’t wait for Monday after school to arrive so that my three children could see the amount of Legos we received.

I knew that my boys would be over the moon happy but what I didn’t realize is how happy my daughter would be. We have quite a few Lego sets around here but none that are geared towards girls, all themes are Star Wars or other Shark Type themes for the boys. It seems very few times does anyone think to buy Girl Theme Legos, but see I didn’t realize up until this past Christmas Season that my daughter even wanted Girl Lego Themed Items. Well, girl theme or not, apparently having this gigantic bucket of Lego’s made her day too! Legos Bringin Kids together for Ages

All three of my kids have never, ever played so nicely … okay except the times they are playing the MineCraft Demo on PS3. This is more than just a video game though, Legos have brought my children together to use their imagination and creativity in a way that no video game can compare to.

Nothing makes me smile more than watching my three children work together to play Ninja games with the Legos we received. I am so happy that we received such a kind gift because it really has brought our whole household together for fun days and evenings. Thank you to the Family who gave us this Lego supply, we appreciate you!

Yo Gabba Gabba Addicts

My family just loves Yo Gabba Gabba and we were able to see a live show last Summer that I wrote about here on Happily Blended, click here to see that blog post {will open in new window}.  Today I get to share with you a new DVD that came out for you all to purchase on January 11, 2011 and we were able to review this new DVD called Yo Gabba Gabba: Let’s Visit The Doctor! before it hit shelves.

Oh my goodness, this DVD is adorable, as is most Yo Gabba Gabba episodes. Teaching manners, how to keep teeth clean, and how to take a good car ride is just a few tips on what you can expect when you watch this new DVD. My kids have fun giggling at some of the silly suggestions provided by others when the characters are trying to learn about losing their teeth or buckling up in a car. It is too funny, as a mother, to sit and watch the children’s facial expressions as they watch their favorite characters of Yo Gabba Gabba be funny while teaching life lessons. I am proud to say my children have learned some lessons watching this DVD and I admire Yo Gabba Gabba for creating such a cute DVD to assist in reiterating what I already teach my children about life.

Yo Gabba Gabba: Let’s Visit the Doctor! Episode Synopses:


Toodee gets sick and needs to rest. The doctor visits and everyone helps Toodee feel better.


Muno has a loose tooth and wiggles it until it comes out, then writes a note and the Tooth Fairy brings him a toothbrush. With only one tooth Muno looks strange, but in the end it starts to grow back.


Everyone learns good clean manners when they play with toys and have to clean them up. Afterwards, they learn to wash their hands and brush their teeth. At the end, they all sing a fun bath time song playing with bath toys.


It’s time to go for a ride in a car! “Keep Trying” familiarizes them with the seat belt and encourages them to buckle up. “Danger” keeps the characters from playing in the road and “Car Ride” teaches them all about the thrill of traveling

Pardon Me While I Head to Yo Gabba Gabba

Yo Gabba Gabba!

My family is heading to see Yo Gabba Gabba today LIVE and I have been pumping up the boys … them being “boys” said they are going to kick Yo Gabba Gabba butts. Not sure if that’s a bad thing, but for some reason kicking butts is their new “game” they play together and well they LOVE Yo Gabba Gabba so it must be their new sign of affection. Don’t worry I will keep them far away from kicking any butts!

All joking aside, today is a well deserved family time trip and I am excited but sad at the same time. My daughter will not be able to go with us as orginally planned due to school starting and today being her day to sleep at her Dad’s. Oh well, at least the boys will enjoy it and maybe I can get some pics to share with her!

Happy day to you all because today is like a late birthday present for the boys who turned 2 and 4 earlier this month and I am going to enjoy it thoroughly! Even Justin got a vacation day to go with us on this trip!
