A couple of weeks ago I was asked if the boys would like to take part in a competition. All they had to do was make the house of their dreams from Lego. The boys love Lego and can always be found making something or other from the boxes of bricks that clutter up their bedrooms so I agreed as this is a competition that is most definitely up their street and with a mummy who loves to enter competitions I couldn't pass up the chance to let my competitive spark out.
The boys were sent a box of Lego to enable them to build their Dream House. They all had lots of ideas of what they wanted to include in the house. Once they received their box of bricks they got to work.
From the outside their house looks pretty normal... 4 walls a door and a few windows... It has a flat roof which Nathan informed me was for his helicopter and heli-pad. Oh and to be able to sunbathe when the weather is nice. As you can see he has also added a beautiful flowerbed (because the bees need somewhere to come and do their magic - oh I love the thoughts of my 7 year old's mind) and a duck pond so that he can feed the ducks whenever he wants - James asked for this to be a fish pond so that he could practice catching lots of fish with his dad - I love how my boys always think of others.
