Lego Jello!!!

I have been on pinterest a few times last week and saw that the theme for one of the party planners I follow was a lego themed birthday party!!

I was so excited to see the creative ideas that she had!!  One, which I thought could be for an everyday, was the lego jello!!

The person bought lego ice cube trays and made jello!! So of course, I had to go online and purchase the lego mini figure and the lego block ice cube tray!

I modified her directions and used:

1 package jello
2 cups boiling water
1 package of knox

I waited a few minutes before pouring the jello into the ice cube trays so that the silicon wouldn't melt

I put it in the fridge, and about 2 hours later I had jello mini figures and jello bricks!
I packed 2 mini figures into Lil M's lunch! I cannot wait to hear how he liked it!

I am totally excited for this! and cannot wait to make more :)
I have also seen people use the lego bricks to cut out jello.. I might have to try that next :)

Thanks for your idea ;)

Lego Land

So sorry, I have no idea where my time has gone and why I haven't been able to post as regularly as I have been wanting to

I wanted to do a recap on our LegoLand trip! Since it was so much fun and all of Lil m's family was there!!

He started off with an amazing flight!! we were so lucky that he had his own seat :) He sat in between Po-Po and I!! We had fun looking out the window, watching movies on the iPad and drinking soda :) tee hee
We also ate gummy bears to help the ears from getting plugged and gold fish crackers :)

First thing when we landed, was to find E-ya and Uncle Rod!! 
We got our rental car and drove to Old town and had a delicious meal! MM chips, salsa and burritos!! Can't go wrong there!!

Next thing next, we made the drive to LegoLand and saw all the cool lego people welcoming us :)
Was so cool!! Lil M LOOOOOOVED it!!

My sister surprised us with cake, a fabulous candle, fancy plates with matching cups and lots of beer for Big M!!  We all had such a great time!! IT was a great way to celebrate a 2nd birthday!! Having everyone that Lil M loves there :) all giving him 110% of their attention! Running around, eating great food, and just enjoying one another :) There was no drama, no negativity and nothing to ruin the fun :)

We were so sad to leave :( Lil M loves E-ya and Uncle Rod! I wish they could have come back with us! too bad they don't live close to us  :( But we will see them again soon!!

Until next time!!!!
