Pixie, Figgy and Glitter sat on the table throwing foam snowballs for Barrel.
“Too bad Nim and Lil had to stay behind,” said Pixie.
“Santa needed them for a training exercise,” said Glitter. “They’ve been neglecting their responsibilities so Santa insisted they stay behind.”
“I know,” said Figgy. “But it’s still too bad. We had planned to have an igloo building contest.”
“Why don’t you and Pixie compete?” asked Glitter.
“It won’t be the same,” sighed Pixie. “It was going to be Team Pixie and Figgy against Team Nim and Lil.”
“Yeah, the Newbies vs the Oldies.”
“Excuse me? Nim and Lil aren’t that old. Why, Nim is only 134 and Lil is a few years older.”
“Uh, Lil is younger, Glitter.”
“Yes, by 3 whole months,” said Pixie.
“I suppose we could decorate those mini trees,” said Figgy pointing to the tops of the cabinets.
“Nah, we don’t have any of the ornaments yet and we are still waiting for the star.”
“Then what should we do?”
Glitter cleared her throat. “We can still have the competition, you know.”
Figgy and Pixie looked doubtfully at Glitter.
“There is another creature here to challenge.”
The duo cocked their eyebrows simultaneously.
Glitter snorted. “Me! You could challenge me and…Barrel.”
“See, he is up to the challenge.”
Figgy and Pixie smiled slyly at each other. This was going to be a piece of cake.

Figgy and Pixie were putting the final touches on their snow fort when Glitter galloped up the stairs with Barrel on her heels.
“Where on earth have you been, Glitter? Joe and Jake don’t have that many white Lego blocks.”
“Oh I didn’t build them out of blocks.”
“Wait…did you just say them. As in, more than one?”
Glitter just smiled.
Figgy and Pixie glanced nervously at each other. More than one?
Glitter turned and cantered back down the stairs. Figgy and Pixie floated down after her, curious about what they would find. When they reached the bottom, their mouths dropped.
“Glitter? How–when–?” Figgy shook his head in amazement.
“Those are so cool!” said Pixie. “How did you make them?”
Glitter just smiled. “Oh, I have my ways.”
