2017! Lots of cool stuff happened but glad to be wrapping it up. We're just at home chillin. Nap time now.

Jeans: the only pair I had that didn't have holes or paint on them are skinny jeans and they make me angry when I wear them so these are appreciated
TMNT disc shooter
Indoor snow balls
R/C Camaro: this one is black, I got that yellow one years ago but it might not have made the move, could start a collection
Some xbox bucks
Nom noms
A Bluetooth speaker/nightlight: pretty sure it's got some stolen components because it's a no name brand but it shows up on Bluetooth as "JBL...."
Coup that game we played at GaS last year
Portal The Uncooperative Cake Acquisition Game: looks fun, also includes a steam key for portal 2 which I already have, whoever tells me the sneakiest thing they did/would do for cake gets it

Barbies brother and sister and families (and dogs) are coming starting tomorrow it's gonna be wild here

Merry X-wanzakkah!

We use our echo to play music to put JV to sleep

So far the echo has provided amusement in the form of Ada attempting to make it play music.  She's obsessed with the song "shake it off" because of the movie "sing"

"Yexa! Pay sake it oss!"

Alexa is not cooperating.

btw, I think your yellow Camaro is sitting in my attic.  I guess it got left at PMC.

lol, Aryn's aunt got us an Echo dot for xmas too.  We were skeptical at first, but we like it.  I jokingly said we need to get wifi bulbs so we can ask alexa to turn the lights the next day we went to home depot and bought Hue, which comes with a hub and 2 bulbs, so now we have voice controlled "clapper", w00t!  It's nice because you can say "Alexa lights 30" and she'll dim them to 30%.  You can setup rooms and groups, or just set individual lights.  Pretty cool.  Next Internet of Things gadget is going to be Nest, or something similar.  Then maybe Ring.

I've been thinking of an echo paired with some wifi lights for the babies room. I got a Nest at home and love it. Nothing like turning up the heat when you are in bed.
