Gingerbread Epic Fail

Once again, we try and we fail.  Must be a running theme here.  Decided this year not even to do a gingerbread house.  Instead, we found a gingerbread train kit.  How hard can that be?  It's a kit for pete's sake!  I have heard tips from friend to hot glue the pieces together but not going that route as I'm sure my kids would eat it.  We tried something different this year.

Opening up all the stuff to see how this is going to work.

Alex inspecting the candy while Logan looks at directions.  Not sure why.  He never reads directions anyhow.

Okay, her face here is priceless.  LOL.  She then said "it's good."

Logan loves his new glasses.  First time ever he's had glasses.  When he came home, he didn't need them but did this year.  He keeps saying he can see now.

Getting ready to spread some serious icing.

Alex is rather meticulous on where the little candies go.  Nik just glops it on.

Irina coming over to help out a bit.

Nik having plenty a good time with all that icing.

Nik and Logan rather proud of their designs and creations.  Do you think they have enough sugar there for twelve people combined?

Reni wanted to wait till the boys were done making a mess.  LOL.  Probably a good idea.

Though not a train, think they enjoyed each having a piece to decorate anyway they wanted to.  Next year I promised we'd search for a good recipe for a gingerbread house.  Next year will indeed be our year.  Just getting one to stand up will be an accomplishment.
