Yup, closed for the 1/2 inch of snow we had on the ground. And if I'd only gotten through my email, I would have seen the announcement.
Zack was more than disappointed. So imagine our delight and WOO HOO-style shrieks of joy when we opened a big box from my friend Jen-that-I-met-in-college and discovered a Gingerbread Train kit!
We spent a looooong time putting that thing together and decorating it. Zack stretched out the time as long as he could, thinking very carefully about the placement of each little piece. He also ate more than his fair share of candies (smart person who put in a LOT).
Our train didn't look at all like the professionally done one on the box -- I think ours is MUCH better!
There's the added advantage that the kitchen smells wonderfully of sugar and gingerbread. Mmmmm. Yummy.
I'm just waiting for the cats to discover it.......
