Defender of All Things Lego

Today is Super Hero Day at school.  Faced with the challenge of fulfilling a little boy`s desire to be a super hero without paying $40 for a costume, Keegan and I brainstormed.  Born from this clash of wills, skills and realistic expectations . . .

Lego Man!  Defender of all things Lego!   Apparently, this is the Lego Man pose, wielding his sword.  Yes, a sword,  And yes, that is my shadow.  We took this just before running off to school and I forgot about the position of the sun.  So we have Lego Man and his trusty sidekick Shadow Girl.

There is Shadow Girl again.

Lego Man`s powers all lie in his hat.  I think it confers powers of speed upon all who wear it since I have never seen Keegan get dressed so quickly for school.

Keegan was thrilled with his hand made costume.  Upon seeing the finished hat, he said, ``Oh, that`s just sick.``  That means he likes it.   That kid cracks me up.

I am now off to pick up Lego Man from school.  Happy weekend, everyone!  


  1. Too fun!!!

    The homemade - imagination inspired outfits and costumes are always the best.

    Happy Weekend to you too!!
