The Christmas Village Returns

Last night Julia and I set up the Christmas Village. I think this is one of her favorite parts of Christmas. We have seven buildings now, and lots of "extras." Grandmother let us use her trunk in the dining room. It's deeper than our old window sill, so Julia can put the houses in more of a town-like "curve."
She plays with them, moves them around, and tweaks it until it's just perfect.
Julia asked for the camera, to take some close-ups. Here's the town gazebo:
The stage coach, bringing travelers to the town:
The inn, where a man with a suitcase is about to check in:
We all love the log home. It's set back in a corner, because it's way out in the woods, you know.
This is the church. Carolers are singing inside.
The local baker is inside his store, preparing goodies for the next day's shoppers.
Merry Christmas!

  1. I do love this! If you can believe it, I have never had a place to set up such a village, or I'd have had a large town by now. :-)

  2. Oh, I can see why Julia likes setting it all up! Love that lighted window with the baker inside.
