Day 12: For Those Who Still Believe

Dec 12, 2017 | Uncategorized | 8 comments

I’ve known of the project for a while–he spent months and months and months working on it, and once completed, invited us over for our first viewing.

It is an incredible work of art. Tim and I marveled at his imagination, his ingenuity, his skill. My brother had built this North Pole Village, you see, built it in his dining room, complete with ice skaters and a ski slope and all the things with no kit or instructions or anything, really, but a great curiosity to figure it out.

So happy he did!

but a small slice of the entire thing

uh oh. skater down!

William, making a little adjustment

(Yes, that’s The Polar Express train circling through the village!)
