Your Development & Design Resource

The most important thing you will do today... Vote for my kids!

When my wife told me that Toyota was sponsoring contest on YouTube -- hosted by Ryan Seacrest -- I was understandably skeptical. When she mentioned that it was a "kids say the darndest things"-style contest, and that she had submitted videos of Lex and Caroline (our youngest of 4)... well, I know my kids rock, but I honestly wasn't expecting much to come of it.

That was until Shirley received release forms the other night which all-but-confirmed that we had made the Top 10!
