Homemade Lego Advent Calendar 2014: Day 22

The story behind the Homemade Lego Advent Calendar: We opted not to buy the Dude a Lego Advent Calendar for the past couple of years. The Dude was quite amenable, countering with: "Ok, then you have to build me something every day until Christmas." Challenge accepted! This is the series of daily posts, cataloguing my builds.

Today's build is part 1 of a build that will become more detailed over the last few days of the Advent Calendar. (Wow, still can't believe this is almost over.) First up is a recent pop culture tradition:

Mr. Elf is sitting on the mantle of a fireplace in a living room that will be filled over the next couple of days. This build was originally just supposed to be the living room and fireplace, but hubby was helping me find pieces and handed me the minifig. I already have plans that don't require a Santa minifig, so we both realized that if we removed the beard, it would be an Elf on the Shelf. Which is weird since we don't actually partake in that particular holiday tradition. Hopefully the Dude will be able to figure it out!

See you tomorrow!
