We've moved!

For the next two years (Summer 2014-Summer 2016) I'll be blogging our family's adventures in China at www.chinesemileposts.wordpress.com

While touring our brand new, mall-sized Walmart the other day, we walked up the kitchen appliance section and I heard Princess Sparkley dreamily telling Buddy about how someday she wanted a toaster that you could see through the door. Basically, a toaster oven, but she didn't know the term. I had to laugh as I explained to her that growing up, my family had a toaster oven and I would watch tv shows and movies and commercials with pop up toasters and dream about how someday I would have a pop up toaster, not a boring toaster oven. So I told her, "when I grew up and Daddy and I got married, we got a pop up toaster oven." Her response, "When I grow up, I'm going to have a toaster with a clear door so I can see my toast cook."
