Power of TEN - Christmas Puzzle for 2014

Our annual Christmas puzzle "Power of TEN" is available now. Every answer is a word containing the letters TEN. For example, if the clue were "These keep your hands warm when playing in the snow", the answer would be mittens.

As in prior years, the reward for solving is a video Christmas card, but you'll need to figure out the password by using the first letter of each word. As a hint, the password could be used to describe an occasion such as the new year.

Note: If you need some help, the full answer is posted here, but try solving it without help first... it's more fun that way.

Feel free to add a comment below to let us know that you successfully figured it out (without giving away the answer to others). We are always looking for new ideas for next year's Christmas puzzle, so submit those too.

Cosplay fun at Fanime Convention in San Jose

Over Memorial Day weekend, the family headed to San Jose and attended "FanimeCon", an annual convention of fans of cosplaying, video games, animation, etc. On Saturday, Felicia and I dressed up as Mario and Princess Peach from Mario Tennis. Jason and Amara dressed up as opposing scouts from Team Fortress 2 (TF2). On Sunday, we all dressed up as characters from the Mushroom Kingdom, Mario, Princess Peach, Toad and Toadette. Click on the picture above to see other pictures from the convention.
