  1. You have to check out Baking Impossible on Netflix. Even the boys will love it. It combines a baker and an engineer in each group and the competitions are so fun. The host is Justin Willman from Magic for Humans, and one of the judges is Andrew Smyth from Season 2016 of the Great British baking Show. He is an engineer and a baker. He calls this “bakineering”!

  2. hey y’all- great list! yummy food and cute clothes! I wish it was snowing here in Oklahoma- still to early though-

  3. Josh, I’m not sure how the boys feel about costumes other than characters they see on TV but we had fun doing theme costumes . . . . one year was New York (big apple, Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, etc); another was characters from Alice in Wonderland (tweedle dee & tweedle dumb), Candy bars; plays on words like “the parting of the Red C”, to name a few.
    Let me know what you come up with. Are you all dressing up this year?
