This year a new Reilley family tradition was born.

Gingerbread houses!

I asked Tommy if he wanted to make a house or a train. He picked train. 

Unfortunately he did not pick "wait for the frosting to dry" so our train turned into a tee-pee train. A poorly constructed tee-pee train at that. And our boy did not turn into a builder. But he was one happy camper since he got to call all the shots. "right there!" and "ish one." (this one) were his favorite phrases.

He's never seen so much candy in one place before.

Ignore his chocolate-y covered face, and my well-rounded one and focus on the smiles.

"seventeen, fer-teen, niiiine" he counted while he put up the "baby tree" (in a high squeaky voice)

If only real trains ran on candy-coated tracks........
I can't wait to do this again next year.
