Weren't able to make it up for Thanksgiving, but we did get up for the weekend after and we have our first xmas tree at the castle. It's a bit of a Charlie Brown tree, but Andy felt it was the one who needed to be our first tree.
So my normal routine when I get to to the castle is to unload and then explore. I take pictures to help narrate all the things that Brian and Marc have finished since our last visit. In the Fungeon, we have more hardware up, mostly for decoration purpose, a railing from upper level to lower level, and the screen for the projector.
Juliana, Rex , and Tosh moved some furniture down to Fungeon to do homework and also to watch some holiday movies.
As we make our way up great hall stairs, we find a new conquistador Andy and Rex found on their travels
Once in the kitchen we find Andy has put leather straps on the drawers.
This is who was waiting for me in my bed, in my spot, all comfy and oblivious to me.
We went a little crazy buying Rams heads at Marshalls about 10 years ago. They have made it from our basement to great Hall stairs, I sense they are awaiting their final destination soon. Andy likes to "sit" with things and then the perfect placement usually presents itself.
Shelves and various treasures found along the way also accompany the Rams heads on the great Hall stairs awaiting placement.
Clocks and swords too await
This piece is great. Rex and Andy found the painting of the Knight at an antique store and Andy built the frame out of stuff he had lying around. He hing it today in this location after I left with the kids.
The beds never get old looking at, had to take and share another picture.
Rex and Juliana got santa hats with names on them. Ruby and Abby touched the north pole.
SO, kids and I didn't do much at castle this weekend, but we had fun. Andy worked hard, as usual, good time had by all.
