Christmas โ€™22ย ๐ŸŽ„โœจ [Advent Day 25]

It’s the first Advent day! I get to open both of my Advent calendars today. I’m so excited!

Today, I found Buddy and Sarah examining the contents of the stockings:

Here’s the first surprise from the Jurassic World Advent Calendar!

The LEGO advent calendar had a little police helicopter:

Putting it together was a lot of fun. I can’t wait for the rest!

LEGO Spooder ๐Ÿ•ท

Tonight it was date night! I am building the Sesame Street set. I left it for last because it is a very special build. After this, I have something coming thanks to my dear friend Mwako, who sent me multiple surprises to cheer me up. It’s Emma’s Art School, but itโ€™s on backorder right now, so I have to wait a little while. I’m excited though!

Random LEGO Fun

I haven’t been as good about taking photos while we play with LEGO recently. I get too wrapped up having fun and forget. But here’s a couple of photos of what I’m working on right now:

And here is the new incredible Bowser set that I got to see in person at the LEGO store. Truly a thing of beauty!

He is even poseable. Definitely my favorite Mario-related thing they’ve released!

LEGO Store Is Finished! โœจ

I finished building my own little LEGO store!! If you see this set, grab it! It’s a great value for the money. Super detailed! Oh but maybe not if you hate stickers, haha. ๐Ÿ˜… Hereโ€™s the amazing storefront!

And some inside details. It has two floors!

Christopher also finished the Galaxy Explorer, one of our best buys and most enjoyable builds to date:

More detailed photos:

I’m looking forward to whatever we will build next!

Date Night Means LEGO! ๐ŸŒน

Christopher is building the Galaxy Explorer. It is a really awesome and complex build, especially for the price. We recommend it!

Here are some photos of the build in progress:

Meanwhile Iโ€™m building the little LEGO store. Sooo many stickers ๐Ÿ˜ญ but itโ€™s very cute and detailed!

It’s an even more fun build than I anticipated. I couldn’t finish it in a single sitting.

Wally World Finds! ๐Ÿฌ๐ŸŒˆ

Here’s some spoooky Berenstain Bears booksโ€ฆ with stickers!

I had so much fun with my Halloween sticker face book that I got another, non-seasonal one!

Recently at Walmart I found this!

I missed it when it was at Target and was sure it was not something Iโ€™d be able to find at retail price. But I did, so Iโ€™m really happy!

Li’l Toy Hunt ๐Ÿดโ€โ˜ ๏ธ๐ŸŒˆ

Today I went to look at toys! I bought a couple of tiny small things, and groceries, and one big thing, but mostly I looked at things and took pictures which is always fun. I also enjoyed a really nice bike ride on the way there! Thankfully the rain that began in the morning stopped by the afternoon.

Here’s a Mei plushie from Turning Red!! It was so cute!

Look at this cute Stitch eating a watermelon slice. ๐Ÿ‰ I wanted to buy him for Christopher!

Even though this is โ€œfakeโ€ Little People I really love this set and may get it eventually to use with my official LPโ€™s. Itโ€™s awesome!

This Walmart exclusive LEGO promo really caught my eye!! ๐Ÿ‘€

This baby kitten doll was very cute too. And big!

This was really cute:

Iโ€™m getting mixed messages from this bagโ€ฆ

After Walmart I went to sam’s Club to pick up the Little People camping set I wanted. I bought it without consideration for the package’s size, shape, nor my transportation method of choice for the day, and once I went back to my bike, a thought fleetingly crossed my mind: perhaps I did not think this thoroughly. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž

So began the most awkward bike ride home ever. A woman gave me an extremely amused smile as I awkwardly rode by her on the sidewalk. I was so glad people around didn’t know I bought this for myself.

Then again I was wearing my dinosaur shirt by Wen, my bike has pink decor in the tires and a huge sunflower in a pink basket plus a large perler bead heart, a squirrel bell AND a squirrel horn. And furry stickers. ๐Ÿ™ƒ And with the kicker of having this backpack on me at the time, I probably wasn’t fooling anyone.

Me: ducks to avoid low branches
My giant toy box: smash smash smash smash

Anyway I made it home with my treasures and my groceries. It was a fun outing.

A Walk And More LEGO Fun With MILS Plates ๐ŸฆŽ๐ŸŒˆ

Here’s a little friend I met on a recent walk!

Today we had more fun with our LEGO. I finally got to use the four MILS plates that Christopher made for me. It’s a lot of fun to create a landscape for my tree house! We are going to set up a table for our (very small) LEGO city soon, and I’ll be including this in it.

Here is the minifig that represents Christopher. I got him a pet rat, a gameboy, and a bag of brand new LEGO, along with pants and a shirt of a more accurate color!

My minifig has a nicer haircut and more accurate hair color, a new shirt and new pants, as well as a few new accessories.

Our partner’s minifig has jeans now:

But he needs a new shirt, because I just realized this is another female torso. Sigh.

Today, with Christopher’s and our partner’s help, I made a brand new meal for dinner –Creamy Broccoli and Fennel Casserole! ๐Ÿฅ˜

It had a very unique flavour. I liked it a lot! Technically, since this is a Blue Apron meal that I saved the recipe from, I’d already had it, but I didn’t remember at all. This time I used better ingredients I’m sure, and just overall did my usual bit of doctoring that generally yields pretty great results. ๐Ÿ˜Š
