I went to Idaho Falls with Tammy yesterday to finish up a few gifts. We needed to get a few things at Walmart, and while we were there I saw these cute gingerbread kits for $8 each. I debated whether or not I wanted to pay that much for them, but I’ve been wanting to do them with my kids for a few years now so I finally caved in and bought them.
I’m looking through these pictures and wishing that I would have put on makeup today and done something with my hair….but, this is how my kids will remember me, haha! At least I ditched the bathrobe for a little bit 🙂
The gingerbread pieces were really sturdy and the only problem we had was when Easton tried to break off a piece that needed to come apart and it didn’t make a clean break. I had talked to them before we started that it didn’t matter if anything broke, we just wanted to have fun, so it ended up not being a big deal at all.
We spent probably an hour and a half working on them, and the kids LOVED it! Christmas music was playing in the background and everyone was in a good mood as they decided how to decorate their train/house. They would explain what they wanted, and I would work the icing and let them add the candy.
