Up until now, our Lego Winter Village has been made entirely out of parts we already had on hand — yes, we have a wide variety of part, and largely built without the aid of directions or building guides.
On the afternoon before Thanksgiving, Grandma and Oliver built the Christmas Tree Lot Truck. On Thanksgiving afternoon, Grandma and Oliver built the Giant Snowman. It was a lot of building, and Oliver was really excited to be able to do so much of it all on his own!
On Thanksgiving eve, Dulce, Gavin and I added Santa’s Workshop to our Christmas Village.The boys were thrilled to have a real Santa (not just Mommy’s found-parts “Santa”), and a real sleigh with the most adorable reindeer.
