I was totally expecting Ava to destroy it but low and behold it was Hayley- hahahaha... that was fun to watch. you're so creative!!!

There are so many things that I love about this. First, I love that you guys would even attempt this. I think it takes a certain kind of person to take on this great challenge and I will never be one of them. Second, I love how serious Eric was at it! Thirdly, I loved how you would snack along the way (as I would have) and even at times would say "Oh Crap" (also like I would have). Lastly, I love that you tried to save it at several stages of the collapse and then were still able to walk away from it like it was no big deal. I would have cried ... which is why I don't make gingerbread houses! So glad you video taped that!

Oh Hayley... all that work! It looked so great and then it had to self-destruct. Well at least you have the memories. Better luck next time.

That was so sad! I was sitting here thinking how creative you all were and how I would never attempt anything like this because it would crumble before my eyes and then lo and behold it crumbled! I felt so bad for you all putting so much time into it and it looked really good...until it collapsed! You all are still my heroes for even trying! :)

I don't even know what to say...it was so pretty!!! Did you at least eat the rubble?

Tiffany said...

I wanted to cry at the end. I too enjoyed Hayley's snacking throughout. And what happened to Eric and Ava, they were going strong in the beginning, and then it was just Hayley.

I laughed so hard and didn't feel guilty about it until I read these comments. I still think it's really funny.

What Mandy, Kelly, Jackson and Grace Richards said...

i'm so sorry for your loss.

KC said...

know you how i felt after Eric dropped my perfectly cooked filet mignons on the hotel floor.

Lori said...

That was the saddest thing I've ever watched. Great effort.

Colman said...

Oh this kills me! I guess this is why they taught us as kids to use little milk cartons inside our gingerbread houses.

It looked like a great house though!

Taylor Tree said...

hey hey we're the carlsons said...

Josh & Tiffany Roundy said...

That was so sad yet hilarious! I totally wasn't expecting it to collapse. It looked so good. You really are creative and also with making the video. YOu have a talent. I wish I new how to do that. At least you got it on tape so you can enjoy your beautiful creation every time you watch it. Good times! Merry Christmas!

Garrison Propaganda said...

ah. thats why im not too crafty. and thats why when we did do a gingerbread house for a display we cheated, and used a hot glue gun covered in frosting. it worked wonders! jonas could watch the video over and over!

Dad said...

When I saw the size of the structure, I thought, well, this might work. Then when I saw it bow at the bottom I knew it was curtains. Wonderful movie. I love the ending. A classic!

hey hey we're the carlsons said...

thanks for the x-mas card- way cute! merry christmas!

Collin Mapp said...

Those darn Autonomists!

Lori said...

I'm just stopping by again to say that we've watched your video a million times. Cohen loves it. He starts clapping like crazy, dances through the entire thing and even says, "oh no" when it get slow. haha! Your card is cute. You have a beautiful family.

I'm sure that wasn't very funny at the time, but a good memory to always look back on and laugh.
