Ernest needed a project for spring break, so I dug around in my stash and found a giant lego kit. 5922 pieces, to be exact.
I don't have nearly enough muffin tins! Pie plates were pressed into action.
Tangent here: These are my "family heirloom" (and those are not unnecessary quotation marks) pie plates, which say HEIDI, from the Heidi's Pies that was near my college town 30 years ago. Although this place looks JUST LIKE IT! ... And if you didn't know already, you can surely guess what my name is now.
As he used up the pieces, the chaos diminished.
I was a great help in sorting the pieces, and eventually sorted myself out of a job.
There are always a few extra pieces. (This was a huge set...I count at least 20 extras.)
(Now where's he going to put it?)
