A Walk And More LEGO Fun With MILS Plates ๐ŸฆŽ๐ŸŒˆ

Here’s a little friend I met on a recent walk!

Today we had more fun with our LEGO. I finally got to use the four MILS plates that Christopher made for me. It’s a lot of fun to create a landscape for my tree house! We are going to set up a table for our (very small) LEGO city soon, and I’ll be including this in it.

Here is the minifig that represents Christopher. I got him a pet rat, a gameboy, and a bag of brand new LEGO, along with pants and a shirt of a more accurate color!

My minifig has a nicer haircut and more accurate hair color, a new shirt and new pants, as well as a few new accessories.

Our partner’s minifig has jeans now:

But he needs a new shirt, because I just realized this is another female torso. Sigh.

Today, with Christopher’s and our partner’s help, I made a brand new meal for dinner –Creamy Broccoli and Fennel Casserole! ๐Ÿฅ˜

It had a very unique flavour. I liked it a lot! Technically, since this is a Blue Apron meal that I saved the recipe from, I’d already had it, but I didn’t remember at all. This time I used better ingredients I’m sure, and just overall did my usual bit of doctoring that generally yields pretty great results. ๐Ÿ˜Š

LEGO Friends Friendship Tree House Is Finished! ๐ŸŽ€๐Ÿ™Œ

My LEGO Friends Friendship Tree House is all done! This was my favorite build yet, I really loved it so much! It is so colorful and packed with fun little details. Here’s a couple of in-progress shots, well underway by this point:

โœจ Ta-daah! โœจ

While I am not fond of the Friends line minifigs, I have to admit the actual sets are probably my faves!

Halloweeny Playdate With Shelly ๐ŸŽƒ

Today my friend Shelly visited! We had some Halloween fun to start off the season (a bit early, but I’m too excited!) I had a whole-ass Halloween Plex playlist for us –all kinds of Halloween cartoons/specials and movies. This isn’t even half of the list!

I dressed up Marzi in her new Halloween dress, we colored Halloween coloring books and pages, and decorated a special Halloween sticker book! It was so much fun. And of course we had lots of Halloweeny snacks.

Here’s Marzi with some of the goodies!

Marzi and I had a surprise for Shelly and Samantha, a Halloween dress of Samantha’s own! She was already wearing a cute autumny dress, as was Shelly, but she changed into her brand new one for our get together:

After our playtime, we made a fancy dinner. Then Shelly’s partner showed up and we all ate together before playing Mario Party. It was a really fun evening and I can’t wait to see Shelly and Ben again! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Finishing LEGO Haunted House ๐Ÿ‘ป

We (well, my husband and our partner) finished building the LEGO Haunted house today! This is an intricately detailed, gorgeous building. It’s also a very fun build in spite of some repetition.

Here’s some photos of the very awesome inside:

Putting the tower together…

The first attempt at working the elevator didn’t work so well, but our partner’s scream is so perfect I can’t help but laugh every single time I watch this:

A more successful attempt:

Did you know this set belongs to LEGO’s Fairground series? There is even a register in it, to get your ticket. That’s because it is a ride, not a house!

Anyway, an absolute blast. On to the rest of our LEGO backlog!
