The Barbie Jeep

A couple of months ago, Ron and I went by a garage sale where I found a lovely pink "Camp Barbie" jeep for the ridiculous price of $5. Of course, it came with a charger that didn't work, and even if it did, there was no battery; and included a factory recall full of faulty wiring. I then preceded to call the customer service # located on the back of the jeep and they gave me a number of a guy in Northport that fixed the wiring issue and could sell me a battery. One trip to the Appliance Connection later, and we had a safe, fully operational barbie jeep.

Barbie Jeep...... $5.00
Battery............. $40.00
Re-wiring......... $no charge (factory recall warranty-awesome)

Savannah and Natalie took turns real well. Don't let the picture mislead you; there was no need for pushing. It runs good.

Here is the Barbie Jeep expert giving instructions.

Missing a headlight. But hey, it was $5. And look at that smile.

$45.00 well spent.
I'm thinking about starting a used Barbie Jeep dealership.

Easter Morning, 2009

Of course, the Easter bunny came and brought too much stuff.

The new glasses and backpack were at hit.

First, the fitting of the ears.
And then the chocolate breakfast began.

"An egg sor you"

Hunting Eggs at the Mason's

This was the Easter egg hunt at Maanmaam's (Savannah's word from Gran'maam) and Paw Paw's.

Savannah and Natalie discussing egg hunting strategy.

This was an attempt to get all of the kids on the slide for a pic. Quite entertaining.

Action slide pics.

Easter egg baskets can also be used for stylish fashionable hats.
