The day after Thanksgiving is always a fun day in the Markel house, starting with pie for breakfast, and continuing on through the day with TV-watching, leftovers-eating, and turkey soup for dinner. But the highlight of the day is always the building of the new Lego Winter Village set for the year. Everyone gets to join in the fun!
This year, we had a few small sets: a town square and a train ride, plus a nutcracker.
And the big set…the Winter Village Station, to go with the train we assembled last year! I knew as soon as I saw it that I wanted to build the bus, because it reminds me of the Columbia Inn’s taxi in White Christmas! I especially love the presets in the rooftop carrier.
The station itself is also pretty cool…there’s a lot of nice little details, including a coffee shop inside!
The station joined the train under the tree in our living room, and I love the way it adds to our wintry scene of happy travelers!
