When Jessica had earned $6, she asked if I would take her to Target to go Christmas shopping. She was really disappointed when she saw that a webkins was $15! She felt like she had worked so hard and she couldn't buy what she wanted. I thought it was a good lesson for her. She was finally starting to see the value of money and time. She decided not to buy anything and wanted to go home and earn more money.
I was so proud of all of the kids and how hard they worked for each other. I think it made them a little nicer to each other when they saw their brother or sister working to buy them a Christmas present. Austin bought Lauren a pink dragon webkins for Christmas. It had been at the top of every Christmas list she made! Austin was so excited to see her open it!
Jason bought me a new camera! I can't wait to learn all about it! We were all pretty excited when Ashlyn opened her own cell phone! It makes noise and feels like a real phone! I hope it keeps her from chewing on ours!Austin's reaction was great when he saw his basketball hoop. "Are you kidding me! Thanks!" as he threw his arms around me. Priceless...The babies loved his basketball! Colton would let out the cutest belly laugh when Austin would bounce it.
This is how our house looked after we had opened all the gifts...
I'm a little behind on adding my pictures to our Family Photo Albums, but check back in a few weeks if you want to see more pictures. I should have them all updated soon! I hope you all had a Merry Christmas!
