Crazy Cart

Santa gave Payton a Crazy Cart for Christmas, but Payton's little brother Parker has taken a real liking to the machine too. I think a second cart may be somewhere in the future.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Not quite ready

Payton sat on The Ghost Rider tonight. He's got a few years before he can take it for a spin.

Cupcake Eater...Not

Head Banging Parker

Parker has taken to dancing. Unwittingly he has adopted the always cool head bangers style. This video has had it's original soundtrack replaced by another by Google's Auto Awesome. The original was an actual head banging tune. But I liked the auto awesome results.

Google's Auto-Awesome is pretty awesome

Google. Google. Google. I'm becoming Googlized. They have some pretty cool software and for the most part they let you use it for free. They get you hooked. Once you're hooked they feed you advertisements and from that they make money; schmidt loads of it.

Google will store your photos online, in the cloud. You get a fairly generous amount of storage and of course you can always buy more. Google has this thing called Auto Awesome. I'm not a de facto expert on it, but it looks at your uploaded photos and tries to do some awesome things to them. It doesn't alter your original photo, it makes an edited copy of it. It only awesomizes certain photos. The results vary from blah to awesome.

Above is a successful auto awesome picture. It's a snowy scene. Auto Awesome added falling snow. Perfecto! In a previous post of our Christmas tree, auto awesome made the lights twinkle. Double awesome!

Polar Express 'round the tree

Kathleen did her annual great job of decorating our Christmas Tree. I did my small part laying track around the tree for the Polar Express.
