Last March, for our wedding we opened one of our presents and it was a Toys R Us Telescope.
It's a cool gift, but what do we do with it? It wasn't strong enough to look at anything really cool, or even cool enough looking to keep out for decoration...so we decided to save it for my 9-year-old brother for Christmas. It would be an awesome gift for a 9-year-old and we would be the best sister and brother-in-law EVER.

I opened the box and lo and behold, was a cake pan and some cooling racks.
Can you imagine the scene if we wouldn't have checked?
"Gee... thanks Mickelle and Rick. I'll use it in 15 years when I'm old and married."
"No problem buddy... no problem..."
