The Hudsons’ 2011 Christmas Letter

Lego was an enduring presence (presents?) in our house this year. Both kids loved building Lego sets and playing with minifigs (the little Lego people). Their rooms are decorated with Lego spaceships, armies, creatures, houses and horses.

In September, Redford got obsessed with making stop-motion movies using Lego minifigs. He has several posted on his YouTube channel. Then he started living every spare hour as AcidCrusherBeatbox in Lego Universe, an online game.

So it was pretty easy to think of a cultural touchstone that represented 2011 for us. For the card, we thought: what would we look like if we were a Lego set? Everything you see is a genuine Lego part (yes, including the turkey.)
