Advent Calendar

We have not had an advent calendar for a few years.  I had high hopes of making one a couple years ago but other things got in the way.  (Story of my life.)  About a week and a half ago Mickey got a picture texted to him.  It was a picture of a little Lego Star Wars ship.  Do you see where this is going?  His friend had bought the Star Wars Lego Advent Calendar.  Being the good friend that he is he had to share the daily treasures with Mickey.  This made Mickey "need" one.  (Thanks, C.D.)  So he went out and bought a Star Wars Lego Advent Calendar that night.  We had a few days worth of building to do to catch up.  The kids are loving it.  I don't think they really care that it counts down to Christmas, just that they get to see what the next figure, ship, or whatever there is to build.

The reds are often setting up the pieces and acting out scenes.  Mostly scenes of their own making since they haven't seen the movies.  I know.  Can you believe that?  Maybe that could be a family activity while they're off of school.
