The children had some Christmas money from an Aunt, Uncle, and some cousins. So, on Friday, we remembered to take it with us so they could spend it! L chose some silver, sparkly shoes. K chose to get her ears pierced. T chose two new Star Wars toys. Mom and Dad were saddened that their girls made such big girl choices. Why can't the children slow down a little bit with this whole growing up business??!! L has worn her shoes everyday and everywhere. The first night, she had to be reminded to take them off before she crawled into bed!
