Happy to announce that I ended Christmas with less lego than I began. My daughter (almost 4) asked Santa the other day for "A lego pirate ship OF MY OWN, that I can build with daddy and then keep in my room to be mine!" So Barracuda Bay has been out of stock for weeks, so I reboxed mine and very selflessly wrapped it up for her. She shrieked "AH MY VERY OWN PIRATE SHIP!" Great success!

The ultimate sacrifice.

Honestly, this is a really cool move from you. I don't know if I would have the strength of character to do this.

That's so cute (and barbaric at the same time :pir-tongue: ). At least your daughter is into pirates. A single thought crossed my mind when I was buying Barracuda Bay back then, to get it x3 that is (daddy, son A and son B) but I didn't won the lottery so I passed and carried on with my life :pir_tong2:

Me neither. Yet again mine are (fortunately?) only 3+ and 2+ . I guess in a couple of years we can build "grown up" stuff together (I mean other than cars and various stuff with loads of wheels in strange places) :pir-grin:

Oh man. What a coincidence! I had to trade my kid for a used Barracuda bay! ;) seriously though, that's awesome. More kids need a parent like that.

Popped in to see if a light was on in the print shop.  Nope. Regardless...

Happy New Year!

Actually, couriers have been spotted taking messages to the KPA offices this week ...

Happy New Years all!

Had a LEGO-y xmas after giving my kids a ton of Classic Castle loose parts. There is a large castle under construction at the moment.

Some crazy fires here in Colorado meant we had to evacuate for a while but hopefully back to building soon

These are great photos of the castle building with your kids! I hope your home survived the fire unscathed.

It's great seeing people build! My dad and I built the Fender stratocaster over the holidays (his first set ever) and now he went and ordered the new modular for himself.
