I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! It started snowing here on Christmas Eve and by morning we had about 6" on the ground. No dreaming of a white Christmas for us! Believe it or not, we actually had to wake Indy up at 8am! What kid sleeps in on Christmas? He had a great time and got loads and loads of gifts. Lego's, Lego's and more Lego's! Since we had lots of people coming over (including young children) we didn't let him open any of the big sets, which was pure torture. He woke up at 7:15 this morning (I think something is wrong with him) and after taking the dogs out, we got to work. He and I put together Lego castle that was 423 pieces. It took about an hour. After that we really got down to business. He asked Santa for the Lego Medieval Village and the big guy delivered. This thing is 1601 pieces! Normal Lego sets come in numbered bags and you put together the bags in order. Not so, this set. There were about 12 bags of random pieces that needed to be sorted by color. It took me, Indy and my mom (Gigi) a little over an hour just to sort! I had used my 3 tiered server for Christmas and it came in handy for sorting Lego pieces (I'm really getting my money out of it). James Bond and my step-dad (Papa) came back from the store and Indy, James Bond and I set to building. Four and half HOURS later we were finished (and I never want to see a Lego again). I have to say this is a really, really cool set with great details. Have a look:
Blacksmith and stables
He got 4 more sets that have to be put together. They'll have to wait another for another day though. Sigh.
