(Lest anyone think I actually had time to mess around with trying to bake these things myself, I bought the kits a few days ago at Michael’s. I bought two simply because I did not want to deal with two kids trying to decorate the same house!)
We left almost immediately, headed for Discovery World and it’s two day train exhibit. The kids lasted there for 3 hours! That was an hour longer than we thought we’d be there. At one table, the kids both got to run a train.
We moved on after the trains and checked out the rest of the museum. We got home about 1:30 and made lunch before getting ready to decorate the gingerbread houses.
Here’s a few shots of them before, during, and after decorating. Alex did some of his piping, but I did all of Beth’s and the rest of Alex’s. I think they had fun doing it. I would *maybe* like to make my own next year, but I have to plan really far ahead because I’ve heard the gingerbread part can be difficult. (Can you tell Alex just loves having his pictures taken these days? 🙂 )
