Note: The Reindeer Santa Sleigh is not ACTUALLY on the roof. I just placed it there for the picture! Both the Reindeer Santa Sleigh and the One Horse Opened Sleigh are included in the download and are DRIVEABLE!

General Information:
I created this lot in January of this of 2007. However, t'is the season...:D
This is a wonderful lot and one of my favorites to play in. It is kid-friendly and "Christmasy". The house consists of a Main House and a Gingerbread House. When I play the game, the Gingerbread House is a Party Room. When my son plays it is a playroom.

UPDATED (3-18-08)
I removed the Holiday Stuff Pack from this lot and replaced the Christmas decorations from the Christmas Stuff Pack with a few decorative items by Mizzesimmer and Mary Lou & Numenor.

Lot Information:
RESIDENTIAL / FURNISHED / §241,707 / 5 x 6 Lot / 2 Stories /2 Parking Driveways (1 with a One Horse Opened Sleigh the other with a Reindeer and Sleigh) / An Outdoor Christmas Tree Portico / Nativity Scene Mound / Pond Main House (Furnished except the Extra Room in the Master Bedroom) / Gingerbread House (Unfurnished)

Main House:
(Furnished) Entry Covered Porch, Living & Dining Room, Kitchen, Office/Study, 1/2 Bathroom (Downstairs), Master Bedroom & Full Bathroom, Extra Master Room, 2nd Bedroom, 2nd Full Bathroom (Upstairs), Spacious Sitting Area on Upstairs Landing

Gingerbread House:
(Unfurnished)2 Rooms and Upper Loft

NOTE: Don't forget to add the smoke detectors and burglar alarms! Originally, this lot was not furnished, so I forgot to add them after decorating!

Other Information:

It took me a minute to figure which lot had a post. I wasn't expecting this one to since it is NOT the season. I guess it is always the season for some of us! Enjoy the download!

You are most welcomed. Stop by after Christmas. I am working on another little village. Although I'm afraid I am using all the EPs to create it and 2 of the Stuff Packs. If I have time, I'll go back and update the lots to use minimal EPs. It's a special little Gingerbread village.
