After the wife made her glorious debut playing Minecraft, I knew I had to figure out more ways to get her in videos. There as only one sure fire way to peak her interest. Mario Kart. It is by far her favorite game and since she is so competitive she couldn’t resist facing me and Alex in a Grand Prix. She is great but I’m no slouch myself, and Alex is a total wild card. You can cut the tension with a knife. Enjoy!
We continue building the playset and finish the first bag (part one here). Enjoy!
It’s a new series! Since Alex eats, sleeps and breathes Minecraft I figured let’s just make it it’s own series. Not only that, but we get the debut of Alex’s Mom on the channel! Watch as Alex shows us the house he built for all of us. Even his little brother Lukas. Enjoy!
We’re back with another Lego playset to build! This time we’re combing Alex’s love of Lego with his love of Minecraft with the Skeleton Attack set! It is easily the biggest one we’ve build so get ready for several parts. Enjoy!
After setting more traps for his brother Lukas in Minecraft, Alex moves on to dropping him into the ender portal. I can’t help but think he has aspirations of becoming a sorcerer and using his skills in the dark arts to make the world bend at his whim. Enjoy!
It is not even up for debate that Minecraft is Alex’s favorite video game to play. The better question is how do I get him to try anything else. Fortunately he is branching out from just trying to blow everything up and has moved on to setting traps for other players. It was no coincidence that Alex decided to trying making increasingly elaborate traps them moment that his little brother Lukas wanted to play. They didn’t hit eachother at all so I call it a win-win. Enjoy!
The stunning conclusion! Alex unleashes his full fury on the house and I am not ready for the end result. Enjoy!
Alex only had one request for his birthday party this year. That the theme be Bendy and the Ink Machine. We don’t play PC games so he’s never even played the game. He’s just seen videos on YouTube. Still, he loves Bendy and knows all the other characters. We went all out on the decorations and of course it carried over to the presents. There is still only so much Bendy merchandise but the coup de gras was a faux Bendy and the Ink Machine Lego set. It was pretty impressive. As always the boys wanted nothing to do with following the instructions but I got them to agree to putting it all together one time before having their way with it. Enjoy!
So a funny thing happened over the weekend. A video that I had posted to Facebook of my kids playing with a projection of spiders went viral! In 4 days it jumped to 1 million views. Over the years Chris and I have worked extremely hard making dozens of videos hoping to get noticed. Once in a while something would hit and get us in the tens of thousands and we’d do jumping jacks. Meanwhile all I had to do was record my kids playing with some spiders for a minute and it goes viral almost instantly. The internet is a fickle beast. Enjoy and Happy Halloween!
I just couldn’t help myself. With the boys sleeping for the night I decided to go ahead and finish the Hoth Medical Chamber myself. Even the simplest Lego design takes some time to finish so I was pretty exhausted by the time it was done. Still, I thought it came out pretty good and Alex even got to try it out. Enjoy!
