And the presents are ready...

Just like Santa

We've decided to do something different for Christmas this year. We are having a gift exchange between the kids. They all pulled names and are very excited to be giving a present to another kid in the house.

Lauren has Ian
Ellie has Lauren
Shannon has Ellie
Ian has Shannon.

I took Ellie to the store to get her gift and she said "Mommy, we're being like Santa and getting presents."

Five Dollars

I can't find my work ID and it's cold so I have to walk around the entire building. It's my fault becuase I never hang it up and the run around every morning looking for it. I have to get goning somehow.

I just offered the girls $5 if they find it. They are now running aroudn looking everywhere for it. However, Ellie just stopped and said "Mommy, if I don't find it, can I still have $5?"

My entrepanaur.
