25 Days of Christmas: Day 11 - Welcome to the North Pole!

Last year we got an amazing gift from my parents, houses from their Department56 North Pole village. Michael then became addicted to scouring eBay for additional houses to add to our village. Before we knew it, we had a metropolis! We set it up on our dining room table and it was kind of a pain so we decided to move it to our bookcase this year. It was like the village was meant to be displayed in there; I love how it came out!

 Welcome to the North Pole!
