The kids and I made "snow day pancakes", an idea that I shamelessly stole from a friend (Thanks, Megan! They really do taste better on a snow day.), and then I dressed them all up in their Christmas outfits to take pictures for our Christmas card. Yes, I curled Lamb's hair, dressed them all up, put on clean shoes & socks, the whole deal... and never left the house with them. But I think the results were worth it...
The kit came with this handy tray to build it on. It actually helped a lot, although it doesn't look the best sitting on the plastic tray...
"No, Mommy! I can do it myself!"
We've got the structure up--now it's time to decorate!
All under the watchful eye of our supervisor!
Two proud builders with their finished product!
Santa didn't come with the kit, but we thought he made a nice addition.
The M&Ms didn't come with it, either, but what's a train without cargo???
