    So sweet.

    More and more I am finding neat little rows of cars around the house from my toddler boy (who is just a few days apart in age from Anna).

    So cute.

    ah yes. Love the little reminders. My son’s obsession right now is Eddie Van Halen! At the age of 9. So I get little snippets of what’s on his mind and what he’s been thinking about daily.

    so cute!! Are they all trying to Jedi-mind-trick the mouse?! Or is that Jabba the hun? lol!

    My daughter does the whole ‘linign everything up’ trick, but she’s yet to have her ‘people’ facing the tv or computer–any day now I’m sure!! lol

    So cool. I wanted to share that my 15 year old still loves his legos. He is into building to scale models of things like aircraft carriers, B1 bombers, helicopters, colonial Williamsburg, the Mayflower…. He spends time on the computer building them and then does them in ‘real’ legos. It makes my heart happy that he is relating his interests in history and engineering to his passion for legos. I feel sure it will be the same for Simon. Once a lego lover, always a lego lover!

    I’m not sure what I’m going to do when I don’t find swords anymore(made from Legos), or battle scenes of little Star Wars Legos anymore,on the dining room table or Lego pieces all over the house anymore (waiting to be stepped on). Simon has a long way to go to ‘still’ love Legos. My boys are 13 and Legos are still their first love.

    Love it! My grandson Cayden loves to do the same.

    Awesome. We are into Star Wars at our house. It is so much fun to watch the children play and pretend. Whether they are using the Legos, action figures, or their costumes and light sabers, it is all good.

    Nice memories they make for us!
    Enjoy your weekend!

    Arrica said…

    That is so awesome. Love that you caught it.

    One of our son’s would stay up past bedtime lurking around the house, when he was around five or six. As we would lock up and head to bed we would find things stacked in the fridge in nice towers, stuffed animals lined up at the top of the stairs to greet us, and a line of toys headed to our bed room. (This was a weekly occurrence.)Of course, I always regretted not having had a camera at the time to capture it! Thanks for sharing. Brings back sweet memories.

    My son is almost 15 now and taller than his dad….sign, the time flies. But I have pics from a weekend my son spend with my parents. He say my old metal dollhouse, complete with little plastic furniture in my mom’s storage room. He wanted to play with it. Of course, he used Army guys and aliens for an battle to save the planet! The next day, after I had picked him up, my mom was cleaning up the carnage and couldn’t find the plastic furniture. Later that day, she went to the bathroom. The littel plastic vanity was on the floor against the baseboards. She checked the kitchen and the little table and chairs were on the floor against the baseboards….and on for all the furniture in the house. She took pics. Thanks for sharing your family. It makes me think about my son at that age. Cherish it.

    Isn’t this one of the best parts of life? My house looks just like this. My boys love to see the photos that people like you and Cathy Z. post of your sons’ lego creations. In fact, they’ll ask if there are any pictures from those “lego kids.”

  • 30.

    Sweet. My son leaves similar lines of his presence in our home — usually in the form of Bakugan balls or cars.

    I just love that.

    MY son is 37 and he is still fascinated by Star Wars & Eddie Van Halen. Boys are boys all their lives in many ways.

    Melissa said…

    I used to find little, plastic animals in the refrigerator. (??) I always wonder if I will be sad when I’m old, the children are grown, and I don’t find ‘traces’ any more.
    For now, I’m loving it while I can. <3

    Love this….I find traces like these everywhere in my home, and I know which one belongs to each child as they all have a signature style to them….guess I better get to documenting that before I forget it!

    I just love how much you’ve been blogging recently. I read all your posts and find you simply marvelous. I love this little glimpse of life with a Star Wars loving boy.

    So cute!
    But I have to ask… my soon to be 5 year old son is in love with legos and is amassing a huge collection. How do you keep it all organized? I have tried small tubs to separate colors, huge bins, etc. I just have this huge lego mess and I am trying to figure out how to contain it. Curious to know what you do…

    In our house, we call things like this “random acts of girls” from our twin girls, lily & gwen. I love notes and toys tucked around the house, and they’re 9. Wonder how much time we’ll have left for these little gifts so enjoy them when they appear Ali!
