A Gingerbread House and Train

Tonight I took a break from figuring out financial aid for school and making Christmas cards to make a gingerbread house and train with the kiddos.  This is the first time (at least I think it is) that I've ever decorated a gingerbread house and let me tell you, we had a BLAST!

Emmy is looking forward to a career in baking and decorating.  She took this very seriously and when Jake wasn't on top of things, took the bag of icing and started decorating herself.  Very cute!

Mari was very intently decorating.  And then she realized she could eat what she was decorating with.  There were a lot of things that should have been used to decorate but ended up all over Mari's face or in her belly.

Peder was very good at telling me where things needed to go and what I needed to do so he could decorate the house.  I think he did a fantastic job!

All three kids with their final products.  Happy kids = a very good night!
