The Annual Gingerbread House Demolition!

We get almost as excited about demolishing our gingerbread houses after Christmas as we do making them. Do we have issues? Yes, yes we do.

Each year we try to destroy them in a different way. In the past we’ve shot them with bb guns and rifles, blown them up with fire crackers and shattered them with tomahawks.

This year we decided to run them over with RC Cars. Oh yes we did!

We set up the gingerbread houses in our driveway and the rest is history. We even took 3 angles of video (because the word overkill is not in our vocabulary) but we haven’t condensed it yet so pictures will have to do.

My BFF was in charge of most of the photography and she got some great shots.

I thought it would be beneficial to put it in slideshow form. Look for some commentary above some of the pictures. Make sure you watch it from the beginning.


It was 3 RC cars against 7 gingerbread houses and in the end I think the RC cars won. What do you think?

Life is never dull!

Happy New Year Everybody!
