Prepping for Daylight Savings

I helped out with Little Elvis' class party yesterday. While surrounded by buddies, cookies and crafts, he said something about smoke detectors. I told him that one of ours was beeping and that he and Daddy could change the battery that afternoon.

He became so excited! Forget the party, he wanted to change batteries.

He finally gets to really hold a smoke detector!
Daddy shows him how to get the battery out.
We ended up re-batterying the wrong smoke detector, so he got to do it again this morning!


We got my grandparents the requested smoke detectors for Christmas. He's already told them, and was very upset with us for not giving them to them last weekend.


We also got my dad a fire extinguisher for his birthday. He's been prepped, so he knows as well.


I'm thinking if this fascination sticks around, then his birthday cake will be super simple -- a round white frosted cake with chocolate lines drawn on it and maybe a redhot for the light. Baby Plum celebrated Halloween by donning his first pair of big boy undies. He's still not quite sure what all the fuss is about.

I LOVE the cake idea!

And I'm guiltily still working on that fire thing. ;-)
