In our home, one of my favorite Christmas traditions is making a gingerbread house. Not the kit kind, the kind you actually bake yourself. Nothing smells better than fresh gingerbread.
Well this year I wanted to try something different. A train. It would be like assembling a bunch of little houses. Easy.
My friend google found me some ideas that I blogged about here. I even found a new recipe that I love. It calls for butter instead of shortening like usual (I couldn't find any and didn't feel like going to the store) so the new recipe worked great. I found a template too...yeah, I cheated a little.
My little man was very please with the results. He loves trains.
The "R" is for Riley, that's squishy's real name. :o)
We will definitely be making another one next year!
