This Year’s North Pole Addition

Every year I try to find one new Department 56 building to add to our Christmas village collection. I work hard to find one that has some type of significance for that year. Last year we added the Cold Care Clinic (an overdue addition for Alek’s nursing career) and Santa’s Fun Run, since Alek had recently run his first three road races – a 5K, a 10K, and a half-marathon. Here are some on-line pictures of those two…clinic funrun

Here’s the one I found for our 2014 addition, in honor of Ben’s love of spies and detective work.  We’ll wrap it and let Ben open it when we take out our Christmas decorations in a few weeks. I think he’ll love it! (Oh, and the elf and Santa-Scope on top rotate when the building is plugged in and lit up. Adorable.)DSC_0003 DSC_0004 DSC_0007 DSC_0006 DSC_0008

Halloween Recorders

The younger kids (K-2nd) at school did a little Halloween costume parade on Friday. Then they sang a few songs after the third graders played a Halloween song on their recorders. It was very cute, and Ben did great!IMG_2572
