Pete and Sam like playing with the Peg Stacker they got for Christmas. Note that inevitably the utility of any structure they create is tied to Webkinz.

Fix-It Shop

Pete and Sam's Computer and Auto Fix-It Shop will work as follows:
  • When you walk in, a girl will ask you if you need repairs to your computer or your car.
  • Pete will punch in all of your information.
  • Pete will repair the computers.
  • Sam will repair the cars. He promises that he will not get mad and damage your car. If he is having trouble fixing the car, he will ask for help.
Pete and Sam will go to lunch together. During lunch time, you can drop off an item for repair but it will not get worked on until after lunch.

Modern Art

After waking up, Sam likes to get dressed all by himself. This is the opposite of Pete, who will wear jammies all day if he is not given some incentive for getting dressed.

Sam is still at the age where any clothing he takes off inevitably becomes inside out. I took this picture after I noticed a few days in a row that his pajama pants end up in precisely the same glob on the floor. Somehow it struck me as a bit of modern art.

Dad: No
Sam: Why not?
Dad: They don't have a white dress.
