Many years ago, we bought a few lighted houses
a line called "Snow Village" by Department 56.
Husband Jim had always wanted a lighted village.
And like Topsy, it grew and grew
Until it filled all these bins!
In December, last year and this,
we've given up our breakfast room
For it becomes Scott City
(as we call our lighted village)
And like any town, it has a residential area
And a downtown and Courthouse square
And a small area with a train station
And a school
Like our beloved Fort Scott, the houses in the neighborhoods for the most part
are not "cookie cutter" but rather individual houses.
And the downtown buildings of two or three stories which house various businesses.
We also have a Tourist Information Center
(for many many years I was Vice President of the Chamber in charge of Tourism
and Daughter Sarah worked there the summer after high school graduation)
And any place that has tourism, has to have a "Big Ball of Twine"!
And putting up the village involves not only giving up our breakfast room
But also many man hours of work to get it "just so"!
We do it for one reason and one reason only
The look on Grand girl Lucy's face as she takes in the wee magical village.
She was mesmerized!
