Lego Christmas Village Update

I've posted before about our Lego Christmas Village - it all started three Christmases ago, when we bought Santa's Workshop. Last year we added The Bakery. My son was so excited about the prospect of creating a winter scape that he designed "Main Street" - the base for all the shoppes and holiday revelers to gather. Lego had a custom design site where you built your virtual, custom Lego creation - then you could buy all the pieces and create the actual thing at home. So the boy measured out how big our village was going to be, designed a road (complete with a bend in it) and ordered the pieces required to build it. The buildings are Lego Sets you can buy - my son only designed the road that runs through Main Street. And he sets up where everything goes (which takes a lot of planning on his part!).

Here's our busy Main Street - the horse carriages are popular this year.

Coming right at the horses - the modern snow plow - this came with our new Winter Cottage.

We're able to spread all the little elements out - the carolers have their own little city square this year:

Is next to the Bakery:

The skiers are coming into town:

There's an ice rink in town:

Even a photographer to capture all the action:

I don't have a picture of the completed Winter Cottage because it just got set up yesterday and these pictures were taken the previous week - I hope to get it done this week along with addressing Christmas cards, making cookies and the list goes on and on!

It's just so beautiful. You have to wonder why Lego discontinued this. :-( So glad you ordered it when you could.

That is just the cutest thing I've ever seen with Legos! Well....I better be careful saying that! My 4 sons grew up playing with Legos and they built some pretty imaginative things! In fact, I'll send them a link to your post! They are all grown now but I happen to know they still play with Legos! heehee! Happy Holidays! A beautiful holiday creation indeed!

This is just wonderful, I haven´t seen this kind of Christmas LEGO sets anywhere in Sweden but I love the little houses and everything else! :-)

Oh, my goodness! This is marvelous. I love Legos and my grandson has just started his Lego journey. I think I'm going to send a link to your post to his mom! :D :D

This is fabulous. I've also sent a link to my son so he could see. He might have even gotten into the holiday decorating if we had that. :)

I love your Lego village. I've never seen it before. How fun to have something you share with your family each year. Merry Christmas.
