Gingerbread murders

  Ok, I know it's a little early for this, but I was trying to think of some way to celebrate the holidays with my fiance that would be uniquely ours, and I think I hit on a zinger. Be forewarned, I may be off my rocker, but I think it sounds cool.
   I like gingerbread men, more accurately, I like to eat them. While eating some today, I managed to find a few that were missing arms and legs. I thought maybe there was a gingerbread shark in the bag. After eating a few more, I found one completely whole, but in a gingerbread puddle of blood. Which leads me to believe that one of the gingerbread men in the bag is a murderer. :P
   That's when the idea hit me. At our house, every yuletide, we'll make a gingerbread house with gingerbread men inside. Every time we eat one, we have to put an icing chalk outline somewhere in the house. Of course, we'll have to make a few green/grey gingerbread men to blame it on the zombies, and then later make some cupcake comets when we start in on the house itself. Either that or I have to get some toy wrecking equipment!
