What do we have here?

Let's see.  We added the piano, 1/2 a refreshment table, Padma Patil, the other 1/2 of the refreshment table, a music stand and mic...

Hermione!  the house gifts and finally...
The Tri-Wizard Cup.

Don't touch it!  It's a portkey! (giggles)

Let's dance!

Advent 2020 8 - 16

Preparing Continues

Hey, Kirsten why are you wearing your St Lucia wreath?

Well, mainly because we didn't get to do a Happy Birthday, Gramma Enne post this year and her birthday is the same day so when she checks in she'll see it and know I was thinking of her. 
Oh, that's fun! She definitely will.

Plus it's kind of like the Advent wreath many people used to countdown to Christmas.

You know, this is a fun calendar this year.  I'm loving all the builds.
Yeah they're challenging.  We've added quite a few!
The time flies by. We still have packages to ship and we were done shopping early this year.
And we haven't started cards yet!
We have a few days.  Anyway, what's new?
The couch with the golden egg, a table with a drink, Ron, the fireplace, a window with a jar on it, a large Christmas tree, a window with a chocolate frog, Pavarti, and two small Christmas trees.

Oh, look! The windows hook to the fireplace.  I've made a "common room" scene.

I put these three in dance class. (giggles)

Hope you are having a great Advent!  Happy Belated Birthday, Gramma Enne!

Do you have any preparation traditions?  Which are your favorite?

Have a nice day! Stay safe and well!

Advent 2020 1-7

Preparing for Christmas

Hey, what's that?

Don't you just love this Victrola?

Yeah, you know the record play Professor McGonogall uses during dance lessons in Goblet of Fire.
I love that movie, but how do you know that is where it is from?
Haven't you seen our Advent calendar yet?

So the Harry Potter Lego Advent Calendar this year has a Goblet of Fire theme.  I'll show you.
See we have Harry, a miniature Hogwarts, the Durmstrang ship, the Beauxbaton carriage, I think this is Madame Maxine, here's the goblet, and now the Victrola.
Neat!  I wonder what is next?  

How about you join in the build?
I'd love it!

Come back next week for 8 - 14.

Have a great week!  Stay safe and well.
