Snow Village

My wonderful daddy, Mr. Hanson, has been collecting the Original Snow Village items for many years. After all these Christmases and birthdays, he has more Original Snow Village than he can display under the Christmas tree. So last year for Christmas, Mr. Bryant made him a multi-layered table top, completely wired for electricity and a train tunnel, just for Snow Village. Hooray!

This table top is a bit of an ordeal to put up and take down, but it isn’t too bad when everyone pitches in – so we did. And then there were days and days for daddy to set up Snow Village to be just perfect. And it is just perfect. My pictures are not perfect, as I was still learning about my camera, but I think they will give you an idea of this lovely little winter place - take a look, and be sure to make the pictures bigger for the detail. Daddy's Snow Village is a wonder!

You can look down the railroad tracks to Downtown Snow Village. It is the night of the winter gala, with songs and dancing.

Around the other side of the railroad tracks is the fisherman's lodge and cabins, where they are chopping wood and getting ready for a cold night. On the iced over pond children are skating, as the horse carriage rides by.

Up on the hill top, everyone is enjoying the snow - building snowmen, skiing, and some are even sledding down the hill by the train tunnel!

At the end of the long tracks is the train station - and the snow bound streets on the cozy winter night!

Here is the whole of the wonderfully lovely wintery Snow Village.

And here are Mr. Bryant and Mr. Hanson, enjoying the moment and the fun of miniature trains and Snow Village! Love you two, all the day long!

Hugs to all three of you!
