Thanks, Chickie. Love you, too.

We went to The Engineer's office last night. They were having a get-together with companies they're currently working with. Of course I jumped at the chance to show off the kids and eat some free food. Once Chickie warmed up, she was in true toddler form, running around and being generally nutty.

She somehow found some dollar bills and was carrying them around proudly. She was also planning how to spend her newfound wealth, and when she'd figured it out, she ran up to me. Fists clutching the bills, she proudly told me her plan.

"I'm going to buy a new mommy!"

LOL, maybe it's so she can give the new one to Eli, so she can have you for herself!

LOL!!! I have coworkers asking what's so funny. I wonder how much Saks charges for a new Mommy?

Did you ever find out where she got the money;-) Lil' Sticky Fingers!

Hilary--Actually Jason saw where she got it from and we were able to put it back. We don't know whose it was or why it was there, though--it was just laying in a wicker basket. Odd. Hmm...maybe she should have kept it. It would be a good start for her college fund. ;) Although if she's this good at stealing, maybe she doesn't need to go to college! :-D
