Butter Knife vs. Cordless Drill

This is a sad, but true, story that began 15 years ago today. It was Christmas Eve 1993 and Zachery was all snug in his bed dreaming of the wonderful toys that Santa would bring him. Spencer and I were attempting to put his Fisher Price Mountain Trike together at approximately 10 PM only to realize that we did not have one screw driver in the house!! We searched high and low but in those early years Spencer had no tools of his own, at our new house, and at that late hour we could not call anyone to borrow one so we did the next best thing.........used a butter knife. It took about 1 1/2 hours to put the trike together! We still laugh about it today!

Fast forward to Christmas Eve 2008 where you find Spencer putting together Sadie's new kitchen, well ahead of schedule and using a cordless drill instead of a butter knife! His tool collection has come along way in 15 years! In fact, he has a garage full of tools that would make any man drool with envy!

Isn't it funny the things that we remember! These will be fun memories that we will be able to share with the kids when they are older and have kids of their own! I can't wait to see what new adventures the new year holds!

OMG Sadie's kitchen looks nicer than mine is! These kitchen sets have really come a long way, haven't they? Oh, and your tool set too! Funny!!

Hi Jo.
I just wanted to wish you a warm and wonderful holiday.

We have a 20 month old, and he does not yet have toys complicated enough to have to assemble. Thanks goodness!

Merry Christmas to you and yours.
