pinching their pennies.

i think it's time i invest in a piggy bank for my boys. lately, they've been scavenging the house looking for all sorts of loose change & "millions of dollars" as gavin calls the paper money. they know &/or have found all my hiding spots for change & have completely cleaned me out. today i stumbled across this pile of money on one of their dressers. before i could gather it up, gavin quickly informed me that he was saving up for the hungry hungry hippos game. at the rate he is going, this little thief will have enough money in no time... too bad half of it is foreign currency leftover from our travels. he doesn't quite understand why his favorite store, target, won't take the british pounds, turkish lira, indian rupee, or euros he's got in his stash. maybe i'll have to wrap up his precious hungry hungry hippos game & give it to the boys as a gift from the "baby".

cute! My lil' girl used to call dollars "a million dollars", too. In fact, every time my grandma saw her she would give her a dollar just to hear the cute way she said it! :) Piggy banks are the best!

so fun! my oldest son used to get his stepstool from the bathroom and "find" the change my husband left on the dresser. both my sons have piggy banks and they love putting change into them. great idea to have the baby give hungry hippos as a gift!
