Always before there were maybe four or five entries, displayed under a plexiglass dome on the end of one of the bookcases.
This year there were entries all along a ten foot bookcase. There were some pretty impressive entries, especially the Lego Taj Mahal, which Hubby told me was a kit. I don't remember any others specifically, but some were interesting enough.
I suspected it was the same thing as always, but they've never said that to me before when they called for me to come get the Legos, so because they had said that, I suggested she go with me to pick up her creation. Instead of just bringing out her Legos, the lady at the desk said we should follow her into the staff room. There was a box of the several Lego creations that hadn't been picked up yet. Another staff member was back there too. With some ceremony, the two library ladies explained to Thing 1 that each year the staff members vote on which Lego creation showed the most creativity, and best use of the Legos. Their favorite gets a special "Best In Show" blue ribbon. Thing 1 got it this year.
Thing 1 was terribly excited, to say the least. She carefully huddled over her ribbon and her creation to keep the rain off of them on the way to the car. She carried them both as she didn't want me to bend the ribbon, or knock the legos.
