Christmas Fun... What?

So my sister didn't want more junk to shove into her 300 square foot apartment so she was given activities this year. A while back she and I took Miles to the symphony and then we made rings from silver coins. Hers was made from a quarter, I made mine from a half dollar.

Here we are pounding the coins to flatten the edges, this was a rather tedious step and later I found out our neighbor thought her washing machine was broken because of the noise.

Here I am using the drum sander on my dremel to open up the middle of the ring.

It is pretty cool that the writing is still legible, here's the quarter.

I finished mine later, you can see that it still says half dollar.

Some photos of my weekend in SoCal

This is what I saw Saturday morning.
Bob the Builder with me and my boys.
E taking the Lego Volvo for a spin around the track.
M driving exactly along the line of track because that's the kind of boy he is.
Meeting a Lego family outside Legoland.
Cajun jambalaya pasta for dinner.
Learning how to hold the reigns to drive a team of horses.
Trying to open the locked jail cell.
Three days of fun, what more could I ask for? maybe a week or more.
