Christmas Village at Thanksgiving…

My Grandson has been collecting pieces of a Christmas Village since he was very young…

Carson with sister…

He is just 11…

This is just a part of his Village…

He use to have it in his room… but, as it grew it moved to the front of the fireplace…

and then his Momma saw an idea… that works perfect for his display…

A wood ladder (which a friend of mine and I found at a yard sale)…

plywood board shelves made by Carson and his Dad…

and some snow material… lights… it was finished…

I know the church and other pieces were painted/made by his Great Grandfather…

So makes them even more special…

There is a variety of pieces… from lighted houses… stores… figures…

one of my favorites is the photographer taking a snowman’s picture…

The village is set up in the kitchen area… near the window looking out over the back woods…

Melanie (daughter-in-law)… has had her Christmas decor up way before Thanksgiving…

but, as I looked around… I see why Carson loves his Collecting…

Taylor and her Daddy (my youngest son)…

We had two more Puppies… Melanie’s Mom’s…

but, no photo… (how did I miss them???)…

Tessa and Lucy…

We had a most peaceful… loving Thanksgiving!…

One more piece to add to Village…

Melanie/Carson wanted a Nativity…

So… I thought it would be a great opportunity to pass Bobby’s and mine that we have had for 47 years…

bought on our first Christmas… down to Carson…

Lots to be grateful for…

Thanks Melanie and Brian!
