Welcome to Christmas Village. This tiny town shows up only once a year in December. There is always snow. If you peek in a window and look closely, you will find a mother baking a kugelhopf.
Sister Charity arrives just in time to hear the carol singers entertaining Mrs. Potts. What is it about a carol that makes your own heart sing?
The schoolmaster has decided to allow the children to have the afternoon off to enjoy the bright winter air. The children have great fun sledding and playing in the freshly fallen snow.
Mr. Brownlow has just put his Christmas tree in a wheelbarrow to carry it home. He cannot wait to show Mrs. Brownlow how beautiful it is and commence the decorating.
Sarah is out taking in the fresh air with her sweet little lamb Snowflake. They pause to listen to a cardinal sing a winter song to them.
Thomas and Luke have lost all track of time as they have fun throwing snowballs.
Mr. and Mrs. Winston stop to look at the announcement for the ballet that is coming to the village. How exciting ... The Nutcracker! In the meantime, Mr. Rocester is busy seeing to the yule logs for the upcoming Christmas celebration.
The advent of Christmas is a buzzing time in this tiny village. All the villagers are out and about as this magical village will disappear again in a few short weeks.
A note to those of you new to my blogs...This little village was made especially for me by my mother and sister. It was made as close as possible to the village my mother made when we were children. I loved our village and later she made me one of my own. Each year, I think I love it even more. Thank you mother!!!
If you put on your speakers, you can hear the little song my sister used to sing. She learned it at school and my mother and I have memories of her singing it each year.
