The Magical City of Scott
the miniature light village
that Husband Jim brings to life each December
We start with the bins that we store 11 months of the year
And the "bones" of Scott City
It's all done with mirrors,
well with mirrors and plywood and . . .
And the houses go from bins
to the dining room table
All the better to see what you have!
And then he works to put every building just so!
Until it is perfect . . .
Then he adds the little people, cars, snow and trees
Every town needs a Tourist Information Center
And our only restaurant
(Because eons ago, Husband Jim was the Operation Supervisor for the area McDonalds)
Of course, we have a residential area
with brick streets!
And like the city we live in, there are no cookie cutter houses!
This is one of my favorites
If it was a real house, I could live there!
Or here -- for I love old center hall houses
And this is for my friend Shirley Ann
who loves plantation houses
The Grands enjoy Scott City and do children of friends
And we welcome visitors these December days
Not only do they get to enjoy our village
But we always have cookies and cocoa
