Bye, Bye, Gingerbread




It was way past time for our gingerbread houses to go.  So, Dan and the boys headed outside with a rubber mallet and eye protection.

Yes, they smashed their gingerbread houses.  What else would a boy do?  Click here to see more pictures.

Oliver enthusiastically whacked his to pieces with the mallet.  Meanwhile. Benton was a little more reluctant.  He was still in love with his house, but after a bit of hemming and hawing, and Oliver’s not so subtle encouragement, Benton stomped on his.

I am learning the ways of boys.   Last year, Dan came up with this idea and it sounded fun to me, but really I would have never thought of it.  So, it is now a part of our gingerbread tradition.
