Christmas Trains

It's been nearly two weeks since Christmas, but I have been too busy/lazy to blog.  Therefore, you get to hear all about our Christmas now!  Before we left for our Christmas vacation we got together with our friends Chris and Corey to make candy trains.  This is a family tradition in Corey's family.  Eric and I had a lot of fun making our train.  Eric really got into it and had a lot of great ideas.  He is one creative guy.  We went with the traditional train model with an engine, a coal car, a log car, animal car and passenger car.  There was also a lake with bears fishing.  It was a great little train.  We liked it so much that we transported it all the way to Colorado to show it off, and to eat it of course.  Check it out:

Here are Corey and Chris's train.  They did a train robbery theme.

Thanks for inviting us over Corey.  We had a lot of fun.  I think we have a new tradition now!
