Today’s advent entries are a easy chair with a little table with lamp and a small plant (City), a carrot and pergola for yesterday’s bunny (Friends), and a gun emplacement (Star Wars). For Christmas Build-Up we build a little sled, and I built a wiener dog with the leftovers.
BayLUG‘s annual holiday show at the Museum of American Heritage opens next Friday, and will be operating every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday through January 14th, 2018 (closed on Christmas Eve). Come check it out! On Sunday December 3rd, we set up the exhibits and had a VIP reception for the museum’s top donors.

(The Advent calendars may be sold out at your LEGO store as well, but using the Amazon links above helps support this blog and is most appreciated.)
