This morning started off at 4am with about two hours of strong contractions...that then almost completely ended, but has made Mama and Daddy a bit tired today. So plans of a playdate had to be changed, and your Mama's need for family time suddenly got even more urgent. Thus it was an entire family event to build the gingerbread train this year, not just Mama and Lily. I'm so glad because although it is one of the saddest, falling sideways gingerbread trains you ever saw, everyone was very creative in their decorating and everyone had fun. For instance, "cow catcher" mustaches for Charlie
and for LIly
and one horribly iced (by me with really faulty icing...yes, it was the icing's fault) but creatively decorated Gingerbread Train.
I would love to see the people who make these market these like this-not with some professional cake decorator with expensive tools. Or maybe I really am THAT BAD at this. At least it is another great memory for the scrapbook :)
