Every December we make lots of gingerbread houses. We usually give away a few with all the fun decorating stuff, and we keep four individual ones for the kids and a big one for Dave and I to decorate (not his favorite thing, but he is a good sport!) A tradition we started a few years ago is letting the kids bash theirs in on New Years Eve. Welcome to my zoo!
The finished masterpieces :)

Andy really gets into this demolition stuff.
Ryan looks like an angry elf, doesn't he?!
Alaina was a little more tentative at first.

Karate chop!

Becca in action!

Wells wanted me to tell you he thinks it is so cool when the gingerbread houses are breaking.

Great idea I never know what to do with the houses and end up lamely tossing them. Smashing them looks way more fun!
