The gingerbread structures took quite some time to complete, as you can probably imagine. We had scheduled three mornings but the church definitely needed more time. Even though all the moms lobbied for a winter scene the girls making the church were determined to surround the church with a spring garden. We were very impressed with their finished product, especially as it had all been their own design, from sketch and cardboard model through to completion. By the way the stained glass windows will be shown off with little lights inside.
Ducks on the pond:
and graveyard out the back:
They painstakingly put together the pretzel fence and sprinkled the parsley grass around. There are also several garden beds and a bridge over the pond.
