People from next door, far, far, away, gathered around to watch the annual excitement.
Why are they gathered around our humble place, you ask. Why to watch the annual destruction of a candy home, of course.
Since we built the house out of two kits, Sir William wants to do the manly thing and saw it in half. We will have twice the enjoyment of watching candy confections fly all over God’s creation.
Here is the…device. Carefully planned and constructed by Sir William. It has all of his favorite things to work with: bungee cords, wood, nails, and metal.
Below Sir William is saying, “Are you ready for this?” There are two things to notice, one is the bright blue X on the fence, drawn by our second daughter. She was wanting a target and our son wouldn’t comply, so she drew an X for her daddy. The other thing to notice is how Sir William is holding the gingerbread house. See how it is not falling apart? That is because it is glued together by wood glue. Makes for stronger ammunition.
READY, SET, AIM…. “Are you REALLY sure you want to do this?”
“LOOK MAMA! This is all that is left. Can we keep it?”
I hope you have enjoyed today’s entertainment. Operation Demolition Gingerbread House, will resume on January 1, 2009.
