For 3 small payments of $19.95.....



....Madeline will make you a super-duper Egg cracking machine!!
Papa's help with the "welding" will need to be negotiated.
Maddie had to come up with an invention, all on her own I might add, that would make an every day task "easier". She came up with this awesome Egg Cracking Machine. Thought of it, drew it, and promptly went to Papa for help....as the only thing I was useful for was providing a piece of ribbon for a tape measure. I do nursing, not engineering.
I'll do my best to describe the pictures, but it would be in your best interest to go ahead and order one. She wears a size 4, and prefers something in a wedge.....that will take care of the need for a shoe box. :)


This is the back of the machine. As you crank the wheel, the golf balls rolls up to the top.



The ball hits the trap door.............



You place your egg under the piece of cardboard....so that you don't get egg on your golf ball..duhhhhh. Release the clothespin and allow the ball to drop.



Your egg will be PERFECTLY cracked, in a perfect ring around the center, waiting for you in the glass bowl. I kid you not.....it's perfect. Maddie and Papa did an awesome job....and I told her, if she didn't get a 100% on this, I'd personally go to the school and ensure that she did!!


Oh, and here's the latest pic of our Mads, this just happened to be Tuesday, which is ballet day.

That is amazing! She really came up with that idea by herself? I'm worried that my kids will have to ride the "short" bus to school and your kids are invinting egg crackers?? Good grief!

Wow, Amy told me you had a blog, like a long time ago. As you can tell I have had an extended vay-cay from mine. Let's just say we are in the middle of a very long move...around the corner!!! We are in the process of buying my grandma's house on Woodland and it has been chaos to say the least! Glad I found you, good luck with nursing school!
