Many people live double lives…but a four month old baby? When Annabel thought I wasn’t looking, I snapped these photos of her:
She’s not yet willing to share her secret identity with me (although I know anyway – she can’t keep a secret from her mommy).
if you can’t see the video above, click here.
Until she decides to tell, I’ll be secretly proud of my little crime fighter.
Today is the 11th, which means that 11% of all sales from Kinga’s Kreations will be donated to Friends of Maddie, and $10 from the sale of each Maddie Bracelet will be donated no matter what day it is!
This video will have me smiling. all. day. long. Thank you so much! I’ll fo sho be checking the skies for Amazing Annabel the next time I’m in need of a superhero.
Best video I have ever seen in my life. I mean it.
I was weeping with laughter, and joy at you guys being so bloody creative and funny. After everything you have been through, and are still going through. You are all amazing.
I nearly weed my pants at seeing Rigby in the pot.
I clicked over and saw the Maddie bracelets, they’re beautiful!
Cute how she stands there so confidently and Rigby just sits there so nonchalantly. He could care less about all of the fuss.
You guys are just the coolest parents ever! I know I have said it before, but it is true. Wish we were as cool as you!
Those links at the bottom aren’t going to anything. Boo! Love the video. She is so cute!
You guys are absolutely amazing!!!! So talented and creative!!!! I think we’d all love to come live at your place!!!
SO sweet! How sweet was Rigby in that pot!
I wanna be a cool mom like you when I grow up.
(((Hugs))) from here!
Heidy Martinez says:
This was a very cool video. I felt like I was watching a movie…..MORE……MORE……MORE!!!!!!
Okay…you guys just might have a little bit too much time on your hands! Awesome job, though.
J in eire says:
Fantastic !!! Such a talented family… You are making wonderful memories for Annie, she will be so proud of you both when she is a parent herself and can understand the loss of Maddie – to see how you not only kept going through the dark days but you had the strenght to make them filled with light, love and superhero adventures !! Well done you guys, you are an inspiration to us all.
Beth and Melinda says:
that has to be the best EVER
That video is hilarious! It’s the best AA video yet. Annabel has a big future in film.
It is a good thing that you each found each other. You’re defiinitely two peas in a pod!
Best video ever.
That was seriously awesome!!! Annie is going to LOVE watching these videos as she grows up.
Alexandra :) says:
This is hilarious
Your daughter is absolutely adorable. You guys have way too much time on your hands.
That was classic. I love you guys’ Friday videos!! I’ll be anxiously awaiting the next installment of The Amazing Annabel!
Jen L. says:
I want to be in one of your movies so badly. You two should teach a workshop on how to make awesome videos.
Lindsay from Florida says:
Inspired. Just inspired. First, I thought my favorite moment was Rigby in a pot (my dog would NEVER sit still for that). Next, I thought it was “Oh, she’ll be back, Mom, but luck won’t have anything to do with it” followed by baby clothes flying out of the crib. But when you cut to Mike in the wig cackling at the dog … well, let’s just say my orange juice didn’t all remain in my mouth.
Thanks for the Friday fix. You guys are AWESOME.
that was hilarious! i loved it…and annabel is so cooperative with all your filming efforts. that was great!
Mary Ann says:
That was too funny! I love Rigby sitting in the pot on the stove and the Amazing Annabel what a doll. Thanks for sharing.
Karen Junge says:
Love it .. The cutes video . And what a cute amazing annabel. Oh yeah the parents are pretty amazing also..
I’m sooo jealous, Oliver has just started trying to stand.. Then he freaks if one of us isn’t holding his hands or have hands on him. He’s 5 months older than Annabel.. Course I’m sure tooth department he’s got her beat since he’s beating his 15 month old cousin in that department to.. But hey another month or two we’ll be done in the teething department because he’ll have all his teeth.
This is fabulous! Annabel is so lucky that she will have these videos to look at throughout her life. Fun fun fun!
Oh my goodness, that was just hilarious!! Annabel will just love these when she’s older…what fun parents you are.
RIGBY IN THE POT.
OH….MY….GOD!!!!! I regularly cruise this site, but now I have to comment. Pure awesomeness times a million – no other words necessary. I too loved the ‘dog in the pot’, and ‘the flying clothes’ scenes….:):):)
our infant would’ve let the dog become stew.
Lori R says:
Oh that was so funny. I will have a smile plastered to my face all day! That was the BEST!
She is so darn cute!! Can I have her?? lol…love your vids…you guys have such good imaginations!!
That was amazing!
Rigby was sooo cute in the pot, and, well, there just are no words to describe Annabel.
(You and Mike were hilarious as well!)
Lori v. says:
hysterical – love it!
That video is so funny! I almost spit my drink on the keyboard when I saw Rigby in the pot.
Adventures In Babywearing says:
Oh my gosh she’s ridiculous.
(in the best way, of course.)
I’m speechless. The video was amazing.
Hahahahahaha. You guys are hilarious.
MIKE! You are a good actor, dude.
lilly r. says:
You guys are freaking hilarious!!!! That baby will have a fun and interesting life, Yay for Rigby
You 2 are good…..REAL GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
….and the OSCAR goes to…………………………………….THE SPOHRS ARE MULTIPLYING!!! THE FANS GOES WILD!!!! SPEECH….SPEECH……SPEECH!!!!!!
I get so excited when I see you’ve posted another video! Rigby in the pot was sheer genius. Annie is going to love these when she’s older. Don’t show them to her when she’s, like, 14 because she’ll be mortified and accuse you of being the cheesiest parents ever. But definitely by the time she’s about 25, she’ll appreciate how fantastic they (and you) are. Looking forward to the next installment in the saga of your crime-fighting, cape-wearing, stink-bomb-throwing baby.
Jenn R. says:
This is sooooo funny! You guys are so creative!!
holy moly! last week i said i wanna hang out with you…this week, i’m hopping on a plane! soooo freakin’ funny!
This was fantastic! I love your videos!!!
Mary @ Holy Mackerel says:
You guys are crazy!! Too funny!!!
Wow! I admire your efforts in making this video. Adorable and funny- really good stuff.
Looking forward to more adventures of Amazing Annabel!
That was great! You guys are so funny. Enjoy your weekend
This may be your next career move…totally priceless.
LOL. TIme to get Annie an agent.
Great video!!! I was laughing so hard. You guys are great parents. Annie will love these videos when she gets older. Have a good weekend and hope the Amazing Annabel has a low key weekend.
That is a riot!
good morning. i was trying to click on maddies bracelet on kingas site, but it said it wasn’t found….any help??? thanks.
It’s fixed now – they were sold out, but the store just added more!
The stroller part was genius.
You are a good actress Heather. Totally believable!
Annie is a doll baby but you already know that!
Rigby is sooo freaking cute.
Mike was hilarious. He’s the next Dr. Evil fo sho! All he needs is the “Fricken sharks with fricken lasers attached to their fricken heads” and then he will be on fire!
Props to the script writer!! A collaborative effort??
I just think its great that you all are preserving all these memories for Annie and that you are not afraid to “throw yourself out there”
My kids are going to laugh their heads off when they get home from school and see this.
Hahaha. That is GREAT! Annabel is such a good sport!!! Definitely fun like mommy and daddy.
i adore you all and i’ve never met any of you. this is so perfect. annie in the cape made my MONTH. absolutely too cute for words.
Jenni Williams says:
Omg this was TOO funny. LOVE it!! You guys are the awesomest parents ever. Of course there will need to be a montage of these to show her first boy friend!
Hi Heather…I was going to order another Maddie bracelet for a friend, but when I click the link in your post it says “product not found”. I searched the site & found a pic of the bracelet, but when I click that to purchase, it also says “not found”. Any idea what might be happening?
LOVED the Annie video, btw…she is WAY too cute!!!
they were sold out! The store fixed it, so you can order one now!
Momma Lioness Michele says:
You guys are too much – love your creativity! Annabel is a doll, and Rigby is so sweet – you 2 should branch into movie-making, for realz.
Ha ha. You guys must have been pretty bored Annie was gorgeous as usual.
You guys crack me up!!! I love it. Maya watched it with me and kept asking for more when it was over. I had to watch 3 times before she had had enough. You’ll have to continue to series
You guys are hilarious. I love Rigby in the pot on the stove.
That was awesome! You guys ROCK!
That was great!
Wow! You guys are too funny!
Michelle Pixie says:
I LOVE IT! These are the best and are hours of entertainment for my kiddos, thanks Amazing Annabel!
That was awesome guys! Totally made my day!
OMG! I can’t wait for the next installment! Please, there has to be one!
My favorite parts:
The clothes flying around the crib.
Mike’s amazing wig
Funnelcloud Rachel says:
That was freaking hilarious! I love it!
That was so funny! How do you get the stroller to do that???
You guys are amazing.
YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!!!! That was hilarious!
Oh my goodness, this was AWESOME!! You guys are the coolest parents ever!
BAH-HAHAHAHA!! Go AA go!
I literally started LOL when I saw Mike in the wig with the eye patch! You guys are so funny!
Erin Woods says:
Oh my! That was the funniest thing!! My daughter stood here with me a watched, she got quite the kick out of it. You are such fun parents. I’m sure Annie is going to love watching this when she is older. (and Mike’s voice, the wig, the patch. I seriously could not stop laughing!) You guys are awesome!
cindy w says:
OMG I love you guys. That’s awesome. I think Rigby in a pot on the stove was one of my favorite moments, although Mike with the wig & eye patch was pretty freaking hilarious.
LOVE IT! Great job Mom & Dad! Your girls are soooo lucky to have such fun parents.
That is the cutest video you have done yet! I can’t wait to see more adventures from the Amazing Annabel!
HELP! The link to get a Maddie bracelet does not work and I have emailed a couple of times. I would LOVE one! Will email you on FB also.
LOVE Amazing Annie! She is too cute! Hugs and God BLESS.
It’s working now! Sorry Michele!
OMG! That cracked me up to the point of tears! Hilarious!!! I love Annabel’s cape! So cute. Did you ever receive the little guitar bib I sent you? Hope she likes it. Take care. Jenn
Heather, Mike, Annie, and Rigby,
Good morning. LOVE IT! Have a great weekend ladies and gent.
“smell ya later!”…..love it!
You totally made my day. You guys are so funny!
OMG There is nothing you guys can’t do! I am so super jealous that I am not this creative or cool. My poor kids HA! Thanks so much for sharing that with us!
The Amazing Annabel or the WIN!
That is suppose to be for the WIN!
Although… it almost sounds like Annie’s voice is straight from Southpark. I kept waiting for her to get all Cartman and yell “Screw you guys, I’m goin’ home!”
mom of two says:
I love the creativity…but I also love that it’s very much like one of those Disney afterschool specials. They are so lame, while your tongue-in-cheek spoof is so awesome!!
That is awesome! Really awesome! Annabel will love seeing that when she’s older. You could go into business making fun videos of people’s kids. It wouldn’t be as much fun though if the videos weren’t of Annie! You are all very talented!! I’m so impressed..
Just showed this video to my daughter and she had the biggest grin the whole time. Then, I showed her pics of Maddie and she started jabbering at the screen. It was so cute. I wish I knew what she was saying!
Saw The Killer Inside last night. This was much better.
steve shilstone says:
You guys know how to put the fun in funny. Wonderful.
Trisha Vargas says:
You two are creative geniuses. I am sitting at my desk laughing out loud.
I love it, keep these awesome Annie productions coming
(((HUGS))) from Florida
I can’t believe she is standing like that!! What a little show off!
Peggy Brister says:
Love the videos!
Yah’ll are crazy! Thank you for the loud laughs today!
This video was great!!!! I get so tickled thinking of you two putting together these videos. How neat is it going to be for her when she is older.
thanks for sharing.
These videos rock! What a gift for Annabel when she gets older (or blackmail)! Also, what a laugh for all of your readers! We love them!
Marti from Michigan says:
OMG! You guys are THE BEST!!! I am laughing so much, tears are in my eyes.
Thank you for sharing!
Undomestic Diva says:
I love, love, LOVE your Annabel videos. xo
This was awesome, my kids have watched three times and I’m sure we’ll be back for more!
HILARIOUS! I loved it! I laughed through the whole thing. I have to say my favourite parts were Rigby in the pot, and Annabelle’s quick change in the crib with the clothes flying. So funny!
Can’t wait to see more!!
OMG! That was awesome!! I didn’t think I’d laugh any harder than when the little pants and shirt flew up from the crib when Annie was changing into Amazing Anabel, but then Mike..er, ah, I mean the evil Rigby snatcher showed up. You guys are hilarious! I’m sure I speak for all when I say, it better not be ‘the end’!
Geez Annie, I spelled your name wrong! Sorry!
Oh.My.God. You guys are HILARIOUS! I seriously can’t stop laughing at Mike’s evil character!
I love you guys.
Becky @TheRealBecks says:
Y’all are amazing. Seriously. I LOVED this.
This video made my day! Y’all have a great weekend!! Smell ya later!
Simply awesome!!! I’m speechless! Loved it!
That is the most amazing video evah! I love it!!
i can’t tell you how much i LOVE LOVE LOVE you spohrs!! reading your blog is simply the highlight of my weekdays. AA is too too cute! hmm, i can see where she gets it from. :O) literally giggled out loud when AA snatched rigby from the evil kidnapper. GO AA!
My two children have watched this over and over at least 3 times already. They thought it was GREAT, especially the part where Rigby is in the pot on the stove. My Amazing Alyssa is standing here next to me still giggling. You two are just too funny and creative. Love it! Hope all these comments make YOU smile as much as your little videos make US smile.
Alyssa says to tell you that she thinks it is “hilarious”! Have a wonderful weekend with your Amazing Anabel!
BWAHAHAHAHA! I loved that so much! You two are SO creative… These little videos of Annabel lately are so cute… and Illy (my three year old daughter) CRACKED UP at the last one where she was doing *stand up*!! Keep em coming, awesome awesome!!
Lynn from For Love or Funny says:
I know her secret identity… she’s the cutest baby ever!
You guys are seriously cute beyond belief!
Karen Chatters says:
LOVE IT!! That amazing Annabel, she sure is something else.
This is awesome, even by my husband’s standards. He usually rolls his eyes when I ask him to look at something on one of my favorite blogs but he thinks the Annabel videos are great. Have a terrific weekend.
Megan J says:
Very creative and it had me laughing out loud. My husband just came to check on me to see what I was laughing about! Well done you guys!!!!
Megan (Best of Fates) says:
I can’t even list all the amazing things about that video. My favorite though? The image of Rigby in the pot on the stove.
I have been a lurker of your blog for a few months and I have to say I LOVE YOUR VIDEOS! (Especially the South Park voice of Annabel). They just crack me up. Well done you two!
Puppy stew. :::snort::::
I spit Diet Pepsi all over my monitor at the sight of Rigby in the pan.
That video made my day!
Lessons in Life and Light says:
Bwaaaaaahahahaha!!! Oh my gosh, the Annabel videos just might be my most favorite thing in life. She is sooooo stinkin’ cute and you guys are freakin’ HILARIOUS!
Doesn’t make sense, the physics of it I mean. All those rolls and folds and the chub moving faster than a speeding bullet seem not to follow any of the Einstein’s principles. There is something else behind the little crime fighter’s abilities. I am betting it’s all quantum mechanics. Einstein never liked quantum science.
Great video! Can’t wait for the next episode!
this is SO GOOD!!
LMAO that was the best!!!! loved Rigby in the pot You guys are soo creative…I think I may be a tad bit envious
THAT is the funniest thing I have seen in a long while! How creative and amusing! I wish I were as good with the video and editing as you
Amazing Annabel?! SO CUTE. So funny!!
You have an awesome head of hair! Also, what a good little Rigby sitting in that stew pot! Nice training?
Also, thanks for the Annie Post! I love it when I get to see your videos! They bring sunshine to my Fridays!
What kind of stroller is that?
I read somewhere that it is bad to let a baby stand up like that too much, and that it can cause them to be bowlegged.
Thanks, Debbie Downer.
That is an old myth. It will NOT make your child bowlegged.
OMG!! this is the funniest thing ever!! Rigby in the pot on the stove, hahaha!!!
that was the funniest video!
you guys crack me up!
Love the video!:) You guys had me smiling clear threw to the end. Thanks!!. And Annie and Rigby are so adorable!!
You guys are the best! Thank you for sharing this with us, I really needed a laugh today.
You guys are the best!!! Love that video. My favorite was her lightning fast wardrobe change – too cute!!
Seriously amazing, This video is perfect! You guys are such amazing parents!
Kate @ UpsideBackwards says:
You guys are so hilarious! Love this
I didn’t think it was possible to love your family any more than I already did; I was wrong.
You guys are nuts. but in a good way! Loved the video. You have a breathtakingly beautiful starlet there.
I have a feeling that was the first time you ever used those kitchen pots. I’m right, arent I?
you guys crack me up!!! Great job saving Rigby, Annie.
Dude, the creativity in that was absolutely amazing! That was a great Friday afternoon laugh. That Annabel really is amazing!!
XOXO from GA,
You two? Are amazing! That was hilarious! I like seeing that afro wig getting used for good. lol
It’s a rainy Friday and I have a sore throat, but this is pretty much the most awesome thing I’ve seen all week. I love it! Annie’s superhero clothes change and her super stroller is really quite impressive. This girl is going to be a star!
The video was super cute!
LMFAO, that was awesome.
I’m in awe of Annie’s self-propelled stroller. That is indeed awesome.
I still contend that “somebody” is her father’s twin.
Have a great weekend!
sensibly sassy says:
Wow, that made my day! Thanks for that! Keep the videos coming!
That was the funnest thing!!!
The video was awesome!!!!! Keep them coming!!!!
You two are simply the best parents in the world. To make all these fun videos that you can share with her (eventually to her embarassment,lol) as she grows. I love your blog and you guys!!!
Grin … grin … grin … These videos will work really well when she’s in high school. “Clean up you room or I’ll show these videos to your friends!”
AA is cute.
Jen R says:
OMG, you guys are adorable.
I don’t know what I want more. To be your best friend or your kid. Both would be awesome roles. I freakn’ LOVE YOU!!
I can’t figure out how you and Mike can keep straight faces while filming!
You guys all rock
Too cute! I love how y’all dress her up all the time! This will be great blackmail material one day!
I might pee my pants that was so cute.
That was hysterical!!! You guys are amazing. I especially love Rigby in the pot. Those are the touches that just takes it over the top into hilarious territory!
Mike in a wig and eye patch…. MORE PLEASE.
That is hysterical.
I love you guys! I look forward to video Fridays every week. Can’t wait to see the continued adventures of the
Seriously… how much fun did you guys have making this??
And Heather… I need to know what kind of jeans your wearing! They are HOT!
They are Joe’s Jeans. I LOVE them. I bought them…hmm…like four years ago? But I know they still make them, mine are the petite size because I’m a shorty, but all of their jeans fit a girl with a butt like mine really well!
NICE! and from what I gather by the way you describe yourself, we are built similar. I’m on it – Joe’s Jeans. Thanks!
I love these videos! You guys are hysterical. I laughed so hard when she said, “Smell ya later!” and threw the diaper.
Can’t wait for more!
OMG! That was so awesome! You guys are hilarious one of my most favorite blogs to read. You are so inspirational and have such beautiful babies! ((HUG))) love you guys. (I hope that isn’t too creepy from someone you don’t really know. lol)
Every week ya’ll totally out do yourselves with the video. This one was AMAZING!!! Love it!!! Thanks for finding Rigby Annie!
Leah @Bookieboo says:
You guys CRACK me up!!!!
Mike …THAT wig!!… enough said!
YEA Annie on a job well done!
I love it! I just showed my three year old and she loved it too, she just went and told her dad now about amazing annabell! Soo cute!
Can’t. . .stop. . .laughing! Crying. . .actual. . .tears!!
OMG you guys, just hysterical. HYSTERICAL. I definitely couldn’t breathe when her little clothes went flying in the air, and when Mike appeared with the wig. Pure love, completely.
I demand more, or Rigby gets it!
Michelle W says:
Oh, very very cute picture of your baby.
That is great!!! My 3 boys (ages 8,6 & 2) sat here and watched it with me. They absolutely loved it, and when it was over my 2 year old whined “I wanna see Annabel agaaaaaiiinnnn….”. Now that is a good review!
That was fantastic! Keep ’em coming (though I don’t know how you will top puppy stew)!
Watched w/my 12 year old and we were both smiling and laughing! You guys make me want to be a more fun parent! Thank you for continuing to inspire! God bless!
Toni Jones says:
hahahaah that video was halarious!
too funny! Annie’s such a cutie!
Overflowing Brain (Katie) says:
a) Rigby in the sauce pan was hilarious.
b) You guys have way too much free time on your hands
c) I cannot wait for Annie to grow up, see this and realize that she lives with two tremendous dorks.
OK, that was simply adorable! What cooperative little ones you have!!! : ) (Rigby in a pot = pure hilarity)!
rachel cortest says:
I am so glad I saved yesterday;s post for today. I LOVE the video. Amazing Annabel has Amazing parents. I cracked up. She is gorgeous as are her parents and sister.
Oh…I just love Annabel. What a cute video!
Totally awesome, amazing, astounding! You can tell you guys hail from LA x
AWESOME! Love the video Rigby in a pot was incredibly hilarious! And I love that Annie is growing up with such fun and creative parents. She has such an amazing life to look forward to with you two!
OH-MY-GOD!!!!!!!! That was AWESOME! Seriously you guys are just the awesomest (not a word, but whatever) and so is Annabel the leading baby girl. I was so looking forward to your Friday video and I knew you would have something really good cooked up. BUT?! I didn’t know it would be, “puppy-stew” good!! =P
Also: SUPER ADORABLE PHOTOS! I love Annie’s purple cape with her, “Baby Super Hero” initials on the back! =D
o.m.g. loved the video!
Snickrsnack Kate says:
That was the BEST. VIDEO. EVER! I love it! You guys are so adorable! I loved when Mike was dressed as the villain and was cackling about eating Rigby. LOL. Reminded me of my husband who always pretends to be a villain who is going to barbecue our dog. I am so glad we aren’t the only silly ones who create entire story lines!
Miss MVK says:
Um…you guys are all kinds of AWESOME!!!
And my favorite part (other than the utterly edible Amazing Annabel) was Mike’s sport coat! Classy touch.
Sheer brilliance! Thank you so much for making me laugh out loud. You two are just the most fun parents ever!
OMG! That was the cutest thing EVER!!!! She is just ADORABLE! And, the cape….Too too precious!
Thanks for sharing your Amazing Annabel!
Bwahahaha!! That was hilarious!! I so needed that laugh! Thank you!
That was really great! And I love the look on Rigby’s face, she’s like “WHAT IS GOING ON?!” Lol great job guys!
You guys are so much fun! Annabel is definitely the coolest baby eva–and one can only get that way when the parents are too.
DUUUUUDE!! I so loved this! I can’t believe I was on vacation in STUPID FLORIDA for two days lounging on the beach and at the pool while this video went unwatched. Never again. I shall never vacation again!
P.S. Mike in the wig was AWESOME.
So like if you notice a million and one hits from my IP address, it’s because my daugther is obsessed with “that superhero baby”
Until Friday, she was obsessed with the Evian Roller Skaring Babies. No more. Her new favorite is The Amazing Annabel.
GO AMAZING ANABEL!
Wow, that was HILARIOUS!!!
Quite possibly the best video I have ever seen!
I sent the video link to my team at work telling them to watch it if they needed a good Friday chuckle. Of course, I got the obvious response “Annabel is sure cute!”. Yes, she is! And they thought that Mike and you did a great job with the video. Very creative!
You crack me UP!
Katie Ann says:
The stroller was brilliant!
My stomach hurts from laughing so hard! Of course my co-workers wanted to know the source of the hilarity so now the whole office is laughing.
You guys are so funny! Thanks for the video!
you guys are nutballs. i love it!!
Haha you guys are absolutely hilarious!! Rigby in the pot, Mike with the crazy wig, Annie “throwing” her clothes around in the crib when she changes… superb!!!! I think we need a weekly video.
To Kiss the Cook says:
The Amazing Annabel just swooped in and saved me from too much seriousness at the end of a long day. That was absolutely fantastic…particularly impressed by Rigby’s total commitment to the craft:)
Hysterical! I couldn’t stop laughing!
Annie is adorable and so advanced! She can even fly which really does make her amazing!
Us again. Tonght my daughter refused to eat her diner. Then she said “FINE. (yeah, you just wait until 4 years old…) if I eat all my dinner, can we watch that baby with the super-hero cape??” Obviously…. we are here… which means she ate al her dinner. That never happens. I feel like I owe Annie royalties or something.
That was the best!! I’ve been kinda sick for a week & spent yesterday curled up on the couch groaning…
So I just now watched your video. Loved it! The Amazing Annabel to the rescue!
…I feel better already!
Heather, what a cute video and clever idea. I see why your nephews are amazed!
