Lego vs. Ninja!

So, the boys got invited to a Halloween party tomorrow.  I had this bright idea to make the boy's Halloween costumes this year. Since they are Lego maniacs, I thought making them Lego bricks was a good idea! Something like this little guy. 

I borrowed two perfect-sized moving boxes from my neighbor. My plan was to cut some holes in the front. Then, I would push dixie cups through the holes. Tape them on the back side. Then, spray paint the whole thing. The hubs and I started our project around 3 o'clock. We figured it would take about two to three hours, then we would have dinner. So, we began. 

First, cut cups. 

Michael has one of those exact eyes. He didn't measure any of these. He just started cutting. I was impressed how even they were! Good job honey! 

We decided to test one out in the flap that we would eventually would cut off. 

Glad we did because cutting into thick cardboard was kind of hard. 

But, then Michael said, "Let's do a test and make sure the spray paint will stick to the wax covered cups."

Um, weeeeeellll...... Now what?  

Take note that there are no pictures of the boys here in the background. Michael and I learned when they were three years old, never to call them in at the planning stages. Sure, call them in anytime there is the glueing, glittering, shaking or exploding. But, NEVER during the planning. It's a pain in the butt! Too many cooks, literally, in the kitchen. They were watching TV. Just like we like it! 

I suggested craft paint. Nope... Hmmm. 

He said we should try to see how the spray paint would look on the box. If it covered the letters, then we agreed we would go shopping to find better cups. 

Yeah,,,, no. No what? Ya know what, screw it! Plan B. What kind of outfits can we go buy? 

Ninjas! Let's be ninjas! Off we went! They wanted this specific one because they had a red one for Zeke and a green one for Rocco. Perfect! Let's go. 

Store #1 didn't have them. 

Store #2 didn't have them.

Store #3 didn't have them. But they did have eggs, lunch meat, milk and yes, sugar-free Ice breaker candy. How could I say no? Look at them! 

Store #4 didn't have them either but they settled on another red one and a white one. THANK GOD!!

Two happy boys! Time for some fun! 

Yawn! Where has this day gone? 


Yes, it is too big. But, I am not going back! 

A battle before bedtime! 

Sweet dreams happy ninja!

So, that was my Saturday! How was yours?
