A Lego Ship Kidnapped My Son!

We celebrated Christmas with my parents over Thanksgiving. My son received a "HUGE", "MEGA" set of a Star Wars Lego ship. Since that time, I only see him at meals, leaving for basketball practice, a drink of milk here and there! He has been in his room working on this "mammoth" lego ship for weeks. This set is not sold in stores! It's just huge and comes with every Star Wars lego "figure" made.

Well, it's FINALLY DONE! Pictures do not do this "ship" justice. It has hidden doors...traps...secret rooms! He is very excited to finally have this done. Now I just need to make sure my 4 yr. old doesn't go in there and try to play with it!



p.s. A big thank you goes out to this blog for passing this award out to me! Thank you!!!So sweet!

Considering that I am a huge Star Wars fan.... I love that ship! It's awesome. He did a great job putting it together.

Daphine said...

WOW! Pretty impressive ship your son built there! The picture probably doesn't do it justice, but it's still a GREAT picture you took there!

Thanks for sharing it with us.

Betsy said...

What dedication your son demonstrates. I am impressed. I am sure that he will have a ball with that. I love the lego store at Downtown Disney they have amazing lego sculptures.

My AS LOVED legos. We still have all of the sets. . . and he loves Star Wars still today! He would love that lego set :-) Children who love legos are usually excellent math students - that was true here. . .

Leslie said...

Wow, I better not let my fiance see that!! Looks so cool! Happy New Year!

"Hello... It's Me Again..." said...

Your son did a great job putting that ship together. I'm sure that took a lot of time and dedication.

I remember going to the original Star Wars movies back when I was a kid and was always a fan.

Happy New Year!

Jan said...

Lego's are the best for boys. They really work the brain. Good job.

Musings of a Homeschooling Mom said...

What a great ship! Did he do it all alone? It is huge!

Jen - Balancing beauty and bedlam said...

I remember when every Christmas it was a lego Christmas. We have been past that stage for just a few years, but it sure was fun.

The Blonde Duck said...

Congrats on your award! Cool ship!

Mari said...

My son used to love Legos and Satr Wars - if he was younger he would be in his room with it too! What fun.
Congrats on the award - you are pretty sweet!

Chris said...

Wow, that's pretty impressive. I don't think I could have done that. Good job.

Hugs,
Chris

Darlene said...

WOW that ship is HUGE! He did a great job getting it together. I bet he will have many fun hours playing with that!

Stacey @ The Blessed Nest said...

What a great Lego set! Just got my girls their 1st (way smaller) lego set for Christmas. It's very girly with lots of pink legos!! :) And they also played with it for HOURS and HOURS!!! Gotta love kids using their imaginations!!
Wishing you a Blessed New Year! :) Can't wait to see what 2009 has in store for you!

Blessings,
Stacey

That is AWESOME!!!

At Home In Georgia said...

That ship had to be $100 and a 100 hours to build. He did SOOOOO good. Those take so much patience and some ability to do that. We love Star Wars here at our house...we have some star wars legos too but nothing that big.

Happpy New Year!

Lisa & Gerald said...

Cool Ship!
Bet he will love it for years to come!

Jboo said...

Wow!! That is so cool! What an achievement -- your son did a great job on that project!

Hope you all have a very happy 2009!

Jessica said...

Isn't is neat to watch them so intently work on something and then the moment they are done the look of pride that takes over! I love it!

Kelly said...

I am impressed! It's amazing what imagination and determination kids can have!

mysteryhistorymom said...

That is SO cool! My husband would love something like that!;) Lori

Mrs. S. said...

Wow! Very cool!

Kristen Duke said...

wow, my boys would love that! It looks great!

Debbie said...

Lego's have been around forever and seem to just keep getting better. I love that kids spend time building things and not just sitting in front of the TV playing games - not saying that games are bad- I just like to see them doing other things.

Mimi Sue said...

How old is he? He did a fabulous job. I wish I'd kept some of my kids lego projects. Enjoy the time with your them. Blink and they're gone. Mimi

heather said...

Wow that took some kind of work!! Good job kid!

The Berry's Patch said...

I LOVE legos. They keep the kids out of trouble (from fighting). Except that I won't see my kitchen table for a few days. I make the kids create them on the table..for fear of the dogs eating the pieces.

Anna K. said...

My son is that big a fanatic over his train layouts. They're all so complex and intresting, especially considering he's 6.

My Hubby still loves his legos and would be impressed by your son's work!

Caren said...

That's pretty cool! I'm certainly impressed with you son's dedication. Good work!

I'm really enjoying your beach sounds when I visit your blog. Thanks!

AndreaLeigh said...

WOW! that is very impressive!

PamperingBeki said...

That is so cool!!!

I'm thrilled with anything that will keep my kids occupied for a long time so I can blog hop. :)

And I just love your avatar. It makes me wish I were on the beach somewhere...

Valarie Lea said...

Oh my Gosh I am so not showing this to my son. He has been sucked into his Legos, since Christmas.

Smelling Coffee said...

Great ship - your son did a fabulous job on it! My son would love that!!! And, congrats on the award!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Wow! That's some ship! I'm impressed!

XO,

Sheila :-)

April said...

Now, if that isn't the coolest ship ever, I don't know what is! I am truly impressed! I definitely think he has an promising future ahead of him! :)

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Montee said...

That is so cool! Love those Legos.

Congrats on your award!

My son Jeff had just showed me this in the catalog when I clicked over to your site - what a coincidence! He just stood there going "Whoa!" over my shoulder as I showed him the pics!

Jill

Michelle said...

Wow! That is one happy boy!

Ruby Red Slippers said...

I am serious! We need to get our oldest sons together this summer!!! Mine is also a lego fan-I showed him the pictures of your son's creation, and he is soooo envious!!!!
Great job!!!!

Busy Bee Suz said...

That is so wonderful...he must be in heaven!!!!!
If the 4 yr old tears it up...he can always rebuild.
Suz

The Muse said...

I love legos!...What a great build!

Pam D said...

Well, well... my boy saw the pics and is in total awe of your son! That is a lot of lego-ing... and VERY cool! Give him a hi-five from my boy....

Sandy said...

Hi Debbie - I remember the Lego years - I miss them actually.
Happy new year!

Katie said...

Awesome, those legos cost so much. I didn't realize it till Jaden got into them. So cool though and worth it.

Tricia Anne said...

How awesome is that! My son would flip if he received that as a gift. He loves Star Wars and Legos!!! What a super job that your son has done in constructing it! :o)
Congratulations on your sweet award. You deserve it! :o)
Sincerely ~ Tricia Anne

Brittany said...

I can only imagine the price tag on that set. When we went to WDW, they have a lego store and all of those Star War Lego things were so expensive! My husband was drooling and actually called his Dad to ask if he would buy our son a $500 set. I am going to have to show him your son's piece.

Thanks for sharing!

Dawn said...

my son loves legos... loves them! i'll have to show him this masterpiece! he got a few small sets for christmas & his birthday, and they were assembled in no time flat! i'm sure your son was in his glory all the while :)

~The Robin's Nest~ said...

Oh that takes me back...When my son was younger he loved Lego's! It was the same story...He would get some for a gift and we wouldn't see him for days! I remember it like it was yesterday and he is 22 years old now!

Thank you for being so special and all your comments you leave on my blog. You really bless me.
I do hope you and your family have a blessed new year!
Robin~♥

Sarah said...

My nephew loves Legos too! Isn't it amazing what all they have now! He looks so proud in his picture--as he should be!

Jenni @ nest to keep said...

That is so impressive! Your son sounds so much like mine~ he LOVES Legos! Those larger "kits" can take a lot of time to put together, too! Has your son ever seen the Lego space shuttle? That was a big hit a few Christmases ago...

I hope you have a great weekend! :)

Pearls and Grace said...

So happy you all had a Merry Christmas!
Happy New Year to you as well!
Pray that you are blessed beyond measure this year!

Joanna said...

Happy New Years! Wow, that is some ship! I wouldn't be finished with it for the next 6 months! Kuddos to your son!

Jen r. said...

Wow, I am impressed! I would never have been able to do that!

Amanda said...

happy new year! good to see you back - i feel the same way about the decs, gone by dec 31...white flowers and no clutter!!!

The Arthur Clan said...

My sons all got lego sets for Christmas as well...but not any this big or amazing! Kudos to your son for sticking with it and finishing that big project. Way to go!

Kasey Hunt said...

That is great that he did that. What an accomplishment. Now you can enjoy your son again!!

Kim said...

That thing is huge. He did a great job!

Girly Stuff said...

My 7 year old would scream like a girl if he got this (JK)! He is putting together an Indiana Jones a this moment. And the 3 year old has strict instructions not to breathe on it!

I'm glad you will get to see him again!

Scrapper Mom said...

I don't have a little boy anymore, but I remember the days of legos!! And as far as the Christmas clutter..all mine is still out. I've had good intentions for the past week, but it just hasn't happened yet. I'm getting a little ancy too! Have a wonderful New Year.

blueladybug said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. My 10 year old son would be so jealous if he was your son's Star Wars ship. He loves Legos and got about 5 small sets for x-mas and is almost finished putting them all together. Thanks for sharing!

Wendy said...

Oh. my. goodness. My 8-year-old is one of the biggest Star Wars/ Legos fans alive. He would love that ship! Your little guy did a great job building it! WOW!

Kim@ForeverWherever said...

I can relate with you on the Star Wars Legos! My son is working on a giant AT-AT right now! It's going to walk! I hope we don't lose any pieces!
Have a great new year...I love your blog name!

Monogramchick said...

Despite the fact that I am now super girl-y, Legos were my favorite "toy" as a kid! Looks like he did a rockin' job!!
