Gingerbread Train...Well Sorta...

For FHE we decided to make a gingerbread train, or a graham cracker train...
In the past Dustin and I have failed miserably at the whole gingerbread thing, we even got a kit one year and it still didn't stay up. So this year was a HUGE step...
So we've decided we aren't 3D artists, because we can't carve pumpkins or build a good gingerbread house or train, at least we have fun though, right?
Thomas loved it! He loved eating the frosting, hence the white beard around his mouth, and he did actually a lot of the decorating, more than I thought a 2 year-old would do. 
Also grandma Lisa joined us with the festivities and made some chocolate covered pretzels. 
Than afterwards we met up with Dustin's grandparents and drove around the neighborhood to look at all the pretty lights. 
It was nice to do something fun, since it's been a while since we've all been sick the last two weeks.

Looks like a train to me :). I love the pictures of Thomas next to the tree, very cute!
