Lego Movies!


What are the chances that two days before Christmas, all three of my kids would get sick?   And then they would get me sick, too?!  Yea, that's what's happening in our house RIGHT NOW! 


So, Paprika's Christmas recital for our neighbors had to be postponed.  I put Ginger in my bed this morning and set up a movie for her to watch. She was so sick, it was pathetic. Then, about half an hour later I heard her crying and I rushed into the room to see if she was okay. She had an enormous accident on my bed (!) - on the pillows, everything. She was so upset and kept saying that she had not gone potty on the bed and please don't tell Santa.


I told her of course I would never say a word to Santa. A warm bath and a few loads of laundry, and everything was better.


Then we took the girls for a drive - first to Chipotle to pick up chips and guacamole - and then we went and parked at the beach and let the girls eat in their jammies. Silver linings. 

Despite being sick, the girls have been entertaining's hard to keep them down!  ;-)

Here are a few puppets that Ginger and Paprika made out of paper and pens. They put on a little puppet show with their creations:

Paprika and Mr. M made a little stop-motion animated movie last night, and then Paprika made a little movie on her own today.

Here are a few behind the scenes shots:

The Legos (these were Mr. M's when he was a child):


In progress:


They just used the point and shoot camera (Lumix) to take still photographs, and then uploaded into editing software on the computer (Avid).  Then they uploaded it to YouTube.  Paprika kept saying:  I can't wait to see this on YouTUB!  Haha.

Mr. M showed Paprika how to put it all together. I think it turned out pretty cute! :-)

Here's the first movie:

Here's the second little movie she made today:

They're just simple little movies...but Paprika's really proud of them and the important thing is that she had so much fun making them! She's already started storyboarding her next project.  :-)


The End.

Oh yeah and poor Ginger! And bummer that you haven't been feeling well. I woke up with a sore throat today, Brennan was not himself today and then had a fever tonight:( I hope it doesn't last either of our houses!
