Happy Christmas!

Yesterday, Colleen said she was going out for some last minute shopping. Penny heard this and asked if Colleen was going to bring her a present.

 Colleen said "No! No presents for you!"

Penny cried...

This Is So Cool!

Rob told me that this is the only steam engine running in Massachusetts in 2010! She is on loan from Boothbay Railway. 
That's Fireman Heath ringing the bell. His real job is to shovel coal. 
I'll have more on this later. I have a ton of pictures and stuff!

Light bulb snowman craft

Guest post written by Madeline Cross

When something is no longer usable for its purpose around the house, I like to use it for a craft or see if it can come to some other use. I just hate to be so wasteful and it's even better to try and reuse something rather than just recycle it.

I went online with our clear wireless internet about a week ago to try and come up with some Christmas crafts to make with my kids out of some repurposed stuff. Well, I found all kinds of stuff but some of it just didn't look that nice.

However, I did find this light bulb snowman project that I thought would be pretty neat. I had held onto some of our old light bulbs after we had switched over to some of those strangely shaped energy efficient ones. I had held onto them because I thought that they would be good to make some Christmas ornaments from and I was right! That's exactly what I ended up using them as, with the help of a little paint and art supplies.
