Christmas Unexpected gifts

Since our Christmas trip to MN was a surprise, grandma decided to throw some gifts together for my boys.  Surprising enough they became the most played with gift.  She had a bunch of Ban Bao for when any of the grandkids came over for a quick toy play.  Well we have played with many different building blocks that are similar to LEGO, but almost all of them just do not work well.
That being said, my guys wanted to start building immediately, that's just the kind of guys they are.  I made them wait until we got home because mom was mean and said NO to them being strewn around grandma and grandpas house with 20 other people there and needing to make a quick get away I did not want to be looking for building blocks into the wee hours of the night.  If it is buildable they will do it as fast as they can.
They had 3 boxes each from grandma and then dad brought them both a box home to have blocks just for their block building mug.  They started into the boxes and unfortunately mom was helping build instead of taking pictures of the building process except for the big box for their mugs.
By this time thy had already made the 4 little cars that came in grandmas boxes. 
The helicopter went over seriously well with the little boy who thinks all things that fly may be just as awesome as cars, machines, trucks and trains.

Our little modge podge of their new creations.  Played with for hours on end.  Building toys are a must in this house.
Well maybe the helicopter needs to become a car too.  hee hee hee
Then they added string to bungee vehicles and create a crane.  I love their creativity.  The rest as they say is history.  These are now a constant in our house and usually spend the night in their room so they can play as soon as they wake up.
Hope all is going well for you.
God Bless
