The Great Gingerbread Disaster of 2010

In true Nelson tradition we decided to build a gingerbread house.
Our house was supposed to look like this...

Easy enough.
And so the construction commenced.
There was a slight hitch with the roof...(and by "hitch" I mean it started falling apart completely.  We lost a couple really good gumballs that day...)

But after continued perseverance.....tah dah!
Almost identical to the picture right?!...besides the drooping candy mint, the non-existent windows, and the random drooping purple gumball

And then.....disaster
I'm highly suspicious this was revenge for grandma getting run over by a reindeer...

But yeah....like I was saying....a lot like the picture.

Bub had fun though and we were still able to laugh even through the great Gingerbread Apocalypse.  

Here's hoping your gingerbread men aren't running as fast as they can like ours are...
