Photo Glimpse - Gingergread Demolition

After last year's bad gingerbread houses I told the kids if they wanted to make them this year they'd have to beg Grandma.  It must have worked because while my mom was watching the kids when Trevor and I were in Portland, she made gingerbread houses with them.

Oh, my oldest decided to save his and shoot it to it's doom (he was VERY supervised, don't worry)....

I don't know if I mentioned this before, but great trick- put a hole in the bottom of the board to stick a nightlight through, then the candy sucker glass windows will light up.
Here's their creations:

But anyways, this supposed to be a "photo glimpse" post - - so here it is, the fun of destroying the houses!

Flashback - - from last year's demolition:
and several years before that (that toddler is now 9...)

now that is a great tradition!!! Love it and pinning!

That looks like fun! We eat our houses, but this looks fun. Maybe we will have to try this when the house gets too stale to eat. I bet my girls would have fun!

I love it. We do gingerbread houses each year and it always seems like a sad day when I finally dump the gingerbread house. This would make it more joyous!

This is the cutest thing I have ever seen! What a great idea, I laughed out loud reading this. I'm certainly going to ask my best friend if we can do this with my godson! So funny.
