How To Eat A Gingerbread House

The kids made graham cracker gingerbread houses at school on Friday to celebrate the last day of school before the winter break. Being the way cool mom that I am, I let the kids have 10 minutes to go to town on the houses on Friday night and on Saturday night- which proved to be a great bribe to get kids to eat their dinner each night. Friday night, they ate 3/4 of the candy off of the houses. Saturday night, candy gone from one house completely and almost gone from the other, the kids discovered that they could eat the houses themselves. Hilarity- and an insane sugar high- ensued.

I'd like to skip the house building part and just eat the graham crackers and icing. Was there anything left after their 10 mins on Saturday night?
