Mr. Potato Head

Do you know Mabel Sawhill? She is a fantastic woman who defies her age (97 I believe) and keeps right on cooking. Literally. She catered our wedding. And the weddings of most of my parent's friends. And a few of their parent's friends. She's so amazing that Madeline Marshall followed her to create her senior thesis/film. It's a beautiful testament to a beautiful, Godly woman.

This Is Life from Madeline Marshall on Vimeo.

Anyway, what does she have to do with Mr. Potato Head? She told my mom and Rock that back in the day, they used to just have the Mr. Potato Head accessories and you put them in to a real potato.So they tried it out for themselves. Pretty cute, huh?

Awesome video. Mabel is AMAZING! We saw one of the first potato head kits for real potatoes at the Boston Children's Museum. It was very cool to see!
