Lego Advent Calendar: Day 24

Merry Christmas to all!

While today is the last official Lego Advent Calendar post it is not the end of the Lego Winter Village. It will continue to grow and thrive, so stay tuned.

The cats were uncooperative last night, so they will not be appearing in this post.

20141224_221558

As expected, Santa. He’s always the last day in the Lego Advent Calendars.

Santa’s younger brother has arrived in town! I say younger because Santa 01 has grey eyebrows and Santa 02 has brown.

Penpal swap item- a cute notebook!

I made a Yule Log last night. Will be trying some of that soon. Noms.

Lego Advent Calendar: Day 23

20141223_212548

Day 23, and the photo is a 2 for 1…calendar + cat photo.

20141223_212655

A candy cane vehicle of some kind..

20141223_213014

A tricycle!

20141223_213652

A tricycle sounds like a Christmas gift under a tree…so that is where I put it.

20141223_213657

Cleaning up the devastation and rebuilding.

20141223_213703

Even the kitty is helping.

Johnny Sausage ordered a cupcake to be delivered to Officer Carol’s sing-along-sled, which is really a job that only Caramel Frosting, the bakery dog could do.

Well, that is a sentence I never expected to type.

20141223_213722

Officer Handcuffs is trying to arrest Santa for illegal parking.

20141223_212647

Penpal themed decorative tape. Fun!

Lego Advent Calendar: Day 22

20141222_215850

Day 22 has arrived.

20141222_220002

I’m sensing a Christmas tree…

20141222_220400

Yep.

20141222_220415

20141222_220610

Two Christmas trees in the village square are better than one.

20141222_220520

Candy cane chapstick from the iggle swap!

So, I decided that the village needed more snow…so I grabbed the sprinkle snow and let some of it fall on the Lego Village.

This attracted the attention of Fred.

And then this happened….

20141222_220732

Fred jumped on the able. I yelped in surprise, so he hopped off immediately and scampered away.

20141222_220752

Oh the carnage and devastation.

We shall rebuild!

Lego Advent Calendar: Day 21

20141221_222136

December 21! Happy Solstice!

20141221_222211

Pretty.

20141221_222358

Christmas presents! A bit boring, BUT I got to construct something AND they are Christmas-related…so better than the bucket…tied with the turkey/wine.

20141221_222633

Today, I am also adding this other piece I just completed- not from the advent calendar. Santa’s workshop!

20141221_222615

That is a very fancy chair. It swivels. Also there is an awesome picture of Mr. & Mrs. Claus vacationing in Fiji on the wall.

20141221_223107

Santa’s digs are looking better!

20141221_223114

I would like to clear up a besmirched name. Office Handcuffs did not arrest Prisoner 86753(09) because he wasn’t stealing! Here are the facts:

– We have 1 jewelry stand

– The jewelry stand did not come with an owner/merchant/caretaker

– The only other place we’ve seen jewels is on Prisoner 86753(09).

Conclusion: Prisoner 86753(09) isn’t STEALING. He, in fact, has already done his time. He has turned his ways around and now sells jewels for a living.

This left Officer Handcuffs to arrest the turkey for not being a REAL Lego.

20141221_223119

The town tree is looking marvelous.

20141221_223128

The other side of town.

Lego Advent Calendar: Day 20

20141220_205431

Day 20!

20141220_205507

….okay…

20141220_205622

Are those stools? Upside down buckets? This was lame. There was nothing to build.

20141220_205740

Yay. The village bucket. So exciting. Anyone in town need a shovel or hatchet? Come to the village bucket. Free tools.

20141220_205835

Candy Cane Cocoa. Well that’s fun.

20141220_205657

Mama Meredith before she scurried away.

Lego Advent Calendar: Day 19

20141220_150313

YAY! So, I found these little minifig packs. Not quite a substitute for an Advent Calendar since they are kind of pricey for what they are, but still really cool. The best part is- they are random. There is one of 16 possibilities within this pouch. I have no idea who will be added to our town. We’ll find our December 26th! And in the future when I am advent-calendar-less this will be a fun thing to do periodically.

20141219_230151

On to Day 19.

20141219_230234

At first I was super excited, because THAT ladies and gentlemen is a Lego TURKEY. Beautiful. Or so I thought.

20141219_230646

At first sight, amazing. However, it doesn’t attach to the table! It doesn’t click in because it is not a true Lego! When Fred jumps on the winter village the turkey will go flying. Hard to move it around, it just slides right off…lame.

20141219_230700

But, there is also a bottle of Lego wine. Which is attachable.

20141219_230731

Two kitties for the price of one.

20141219_230829

Penpal candy.

20141219_230849

The turkey is a little bit random…hmm….it’s like the village turkey.

Lego Advent Calendar: Day 18

I’m so glad I chose to start this hobby this year. The last few weeks have been very busy and my time to enjoy the holidays as been limited. My house is hardly decorated (unusual for me) and I’ve yet to make a single Christmas cookie. While I haven’t managed to make decent progress on the kits I purchased for the town, the Advent calendar has given me something to look forward to each night and has helped keep me in the holiday spirit. I wish I was able to spend more time with it, but I have a feeling I’ve started a new tradition that will be around for a long time.

Thank you to those of you who are following along. Blogging the advent calendar forces me to take those 5 minutes of my night to enjoy the Legos. Without you guys, I may have skipped some nights.

20141218_214609

What will day 18 bring us?

20141218_214655

Just what this town needs! Another police officer! Well…maybe it does. We all know Officer Carol isn’t fighting crime. Or is he? Lego only has one bandit, and he just steals gems. Maybe other towns should try Officer Carol’s method of community singing to solve their crime problems. He may be on to something….but regardless of our need for a new officer….

20141218_215002

Meet Officer Handcuffs. He is a bit too enthusiastic about arresting people. In fact, when he needs to choose between drinking whatever he keeps in the red mug or holding handcuffs, he picks handcuffs. You can never be too prepared to capture criminals!

20141218_215233

Yet another mug for the party table collection.

20141218_215149

Already working, I see.

20141218_215241

20141218_215341

Well, that’s cool.

20141218_215449

The Christmas bed was empty, but Miss Melody was on the other side of me.
