Friend Thanksgiving

We had a Friends Thanksgiving this weekend because we couldn't fit it into our regular Thanksgiving weekend. Here are some pictures of the highlights - Gracie and her new pumpkin hat from Uncle Ben, birthday presents from Auntie Deb, and of course, playing the Wii (Adam's newest toy!!)

A New Year a New Look

I think the title speaks for itself.

What will happen to the Easy Bake Oven?

The girls just got an Easy Bake Oven. It was a little nostalgic for both Adam and I as we helped them make their $7 miniature cakes because both of us had an Easy Bake oven when we were young (granted ours did not look like a microwave, more like an oven). Anyway, because they got the oven second-hand I suggested to Adam that he should go and get a replacement 100 watt light bulb (because that is what powers it) just in case this one wasn't working (we only have the spirally kind in the house). He couldn't find one. He only went to one or two stores, but still. And so I ask, "What will become of the Easy Bake oven?" I don't know if solar panels can get hot enough to bake a cake in 12 minutes, but I saw a clock on Breakfast Television today that runs off of salt and water so anything is possible.
