This was by far the funniest line K2S0 had in the movie.

Christmas Kitten

This was our first Christmas with our youngest cat, who was having the best time attacking the pile of wrapping paper Christmas morning, and playing in a box we threw some in.  He’s quite entertaining.

We made several of these this year in cedar and pine from something my wife found on Pinterest.

Driftwood Heart

This was a gift that honestly got finished on Christmas day for my wife.  We visited some friends for Thanksgiving on the gulf coast, and brought home a bunch of little driftwood pieces.  This will be a cute reminder around the house of that wonderful trip.

Wine Sconces

Our neighbor asked me to make some sconces that will fit in the small space next to his kitchen window and hold some wine bottles.  I thought I would take it a little further and build their initials into the top, so I made two “Cs” and two Ks”.  He still hasn’t decided if he wants to paint or stain them.

Moana’s Hei Hei

One of our good friends really loved Hei Hei from Disney’s Moana, so I doodled a little art card for him, and slipped it in with the rest of their loot.

Turned Trees

A couple of the gifts we wanted to make this year were some turned wooden trees.  This meant I had to save up and purchase a lathe, which I’m still learning how to work on.  But I have been able to turn out (get it) a few trees that we gave out as Christmas gifts.  The stars on top were carved out separate.

LEGO Christmas Train

When the LEGO Christmas train set was released I ran out to our local LEGO store certain that they would sell-out in minutes.  I may have been a bit too worried because I was the only one there when they opened.  The train wouldn’t fit on the buffet with the village so we decided to set it up to circle our tree instead.

Christmas LEGOs

It’s been a pretty busy last few months (to include a few weeks were I was under the weather) but I thought I’d get back to posting.  A ton of the things I’ve been working on lately were presents so I couldn’t post until now anyway.  This is the layout for our LEGO Christmas village this year, with the North Pole off in the distance.  We’re running out of room…

The Santa’s workshop set came with an extra beard, so we made a senior elf, and it also came with an extra red ball from the “North Pole” sign so we made our young reindeer into Rudolph.

This is what we did with this year’s Chirstmas Train set.
