Evening Project - Gingerbread Train

With all the economic hardship going on, I am anticipating this to be the last "frivolous" Christmas for us. "Frivolous" being a relative term. I don't go over board all that much. But I do consider sending $10 on a gingerbread train kit to be "conspicuous consumption".

So, here it is. My evening project that I invested $10 into this year. And if I do one next year, it will probably be made from stale graham crackers or something of that sort.

2009 we go into serious cost savings mode!

Enjoy the last one for a while...

Early assembling...

Finished Product - I stole some of Skip's birthday M&Ms too!

It definitely does not look like the one in the photo - they never do, but I am a little partial to mine anyway!
