LEGO Friends Advent Calendar 2012: Day 1

Day 1: Olivia’s Christmas jumper. I like the design, not so keen on the colour.

The stars of last year’s City Advent Calendar wish Olivia good luck for this year. I have a sneaking suspicion this won’t be the last we see of those guys…

Uh-oh! Truffle says “Hi.”

Don’t worry, I rescued Olivia and she is fine. Truffle was a bit disappointed that Olivia had to leave.

I’ve been really busy and haven’t had time to build most of the sets I’ve bought this year, let alone blog about LEGO. I will try my best to blog the Friends Advent Calendar this year.

LEGO City Advent Calendar – Day 24

Day 24: Santa Claus and a fireplace

Santa Claus has arrived in LEGOLAND.

Sammy is excited to meet Santa Claus!

“G’day Santa!”

“I would make an excellent Santa,” Sammy says!

My name is Claus. Santa Claus.

“My name is Claus. Santa Claus.”

Sammy kindly offers to give Santa a ride so he can deliver the Christmas gifts on time.

Gift delivery by snow mobile means less reindeer poo all over LEGOLAND.

There's less reindeer poo this way!

Earlier on, Santa tried riding a skateboard around LEGOLAND, but that was much too tiring.

There are a couple of things you don’t know about Mr Claus.

He loves to play with toilet paper (or snowballs).

“Your turn, Santa!”

And 11 months out of 12, he likes to go fishing.

Merry Christmas!

I hope Santa brings you some LEGO! :)

LEGO City Advent Calendar – Day 15

Day 15: The car chassis

LEGO Group, why are you torturing us with these multi-day builds?!

Sgt Tubbs: “This is why we NEVER purchase assets by instalment!”
Officer Kevin: “But we’re getting a free set of steak knives, Sir!”

This is why we NEVER purchase assets by instalment!

“This is why we NEVER purchase assets by instalment!”

At the rate things are going, that frown is NEVER coming off the Sarge’s face.

No lights, no radio, no damn cup holder

Later on, Kevin makes a shocking discovery! How will he explain this to the Sarge?

Uh-oh... The Sarge is gonna be SO mad!

“Uh-oh… The Sarge is gonna be SO mad!”

The skateboard burglar has struck again!

Tee hee hee!

“Tee hee hee!”

It’s all in a day’s work for Bruce. Time for a cuppa!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…”

LEGO City Advent Calendar 2011 – Day 11

Day 11: Another piece of the police station

I was expecting more pieces of the police station would make an appearance soon. On its own, this piece (the doorway, I think) is pretty boring.

Combined with the rest of the building (Days 4 and 5), it’s starting to look pretty good.

Patience is a virtue

Officer Kevin’s mom always told him, “Patience is a virtue”

LEGO City Advent Calendar 2011 – Day 10

Day 10: Fishing rod, fish and camp fire

Perhaps this year in LEGOLAND it will be fish for Christmas lunch, freshly caught and roasted over an open fire, instead of the usual turkey and ham.

Good work, mate! You cook lunch, I'll make us a cuppa.

“Good work, mate! You cook lunch, I’ll make us a brew.”

LEGO City Advent Calendar 2011 – Day 8

Day 8: The prison bed

At first I thought it was an odd desk, but now I think it’s a prison bed. Looks like it came from IKEA LEGOLand. :)

Bruce used to lie in bed thinking about life on the outside…

“This prison coffee sucks! When I get out, I’m getting me a cappucino.”
