Lego Advent Calendar: Days 1-3

It's December! Christmas was always my favorite holiday, but this year, it's been hard to get into the spirit. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that it's still 80 degrees outside. Thank you, Texas.

I know you're supposed to start these things on the first day of December, but I was a bit late getting mine. It was a gift and I wasn't able to meet the gift giver until today.

Now, I've never done an advent calendar before, but the gist of it is that you open one little door a day until Christmas. but since I'm starting late, I got to open three at once.

Let me start by saying that the pieces are smaller than I expectedso my fat fingers struggled with it at first. The instructions are also really vague so at some point I just started making things up. I foresee this happening a lot.

Day One: Clyde the Firefighting Time Lord
I kind of expected a Lego person would be behind the first door because throughout the month, I'll be building a little Lego town. So I put Clyde together.
He has two of those little...black things. I assume those are what he uses to put out fires. Either that or some sort of alien weapon. Maybe Clyde is a Time Lord. In fact, yes. Clyde is a Time Lord. He also came with an extra hat.

Day Two: Assumed Chainsaw and Log
This confused the hell out of me at first, but eventually I figured out that it's supposed to be a chainsaw. Now, that didn't really help in putting it together. This was the first item I decided to just say fuck it and made something up.
Clyde is now armed with a poorly constructed chainsaw and an alien weapon. That poor log never stood a chance.

Day Three: Obligatory Christmas Tree
I was kind of hoping this door would have another little Lego person to be Clyde's companion. After all, every Time Lord needs one. Now that I'm all caught up, we'll have to wait until tomorrow and hope that the calender will give us a companion for Clyde. Until then, He's going to sit by his Christmas tree alone.
I put the extra hat on the tree. Hopefully Clyde can pretend it's another person for the time being.

    1. It's definitely fun! I'll be blogging about each day so you can live vicariously and decide if you wanna get one next year :)
