    I love the Lego brickheadz. We’ve got a few here and they’re so fun to build! Plus they look much nicer than the bigger Lego sets, so it’s way easier to find a place for them.

    I love the penguin you made! That’s so cute! And the gingerbread house looks awesome!

    Hope you had a lovely Christmas! Happy New Year!

    Looks like you’ve had a great year! I really enjoyed going through your months with you 😀

    The Christmas Light Show looks incredible – I wish we had something like that in the UK.

    Happy New Year!

    I think it looks like you did a lot of things other than play video games or watch You Tube! I love your gingerbread house, and the Sims house! I used to play Sims for a very short time but never became good at it.

    That penguin is so cute!

    You’ve done lots over the year! Have a happy new year!

  6. Michelle says:

    Yay! You did a lot of things! I’m so happy that you were able to achieve a lot in just a year and how amazing year can be for someone. Ouch on the car.
