Gingerbread Fun 2008

This year the kids decided to do a gingerbread train instead of houses. So we started a couple of days ago making the dough. While it chilled, we created our own pattern and tested it taping the paper templates together. Then we rolled out the dough, cut out the pieces and baked them. As you can see Taylor was very excited to help with this part.

I’m not sure what he had more fun doing, rolling, cutting or building flour mountain ranges. *grin*

Tonight it was on to decorating:

And the final result was one we were all happy with!
