Abby has always been a petite girlie girl. She recently started wearing rings on her wedding ring finger to practice for the day her prince gives her an engagement ring. Finding the right rings for her tiny fingers was not easy! We found 7 cheap rings in a box at Claire's for 3 bucks! They weren't quite meant to be sized so small but with some help from Dad and some needle nose pliers Abby is set to be a princess in training! She wears the solitaire "sapphire" ring on Fridays because it's her favorite and it looks a little bit like the one Prince William gave to his fiancée.
Tom learned how to play Monopoly and he loves it. Now he's not very good at it because he buys and buys and buys until he has to mortgage, mortgage and mortgage, but he loves playing the banker and buying properties and building houses and hotels. He seems to think the money in his real wallet is like Monopoly money. He will spend and spend until it's gone not realizing that at on $1 a week allowance, it takes months to be able to afford the toys he wants to purchase. Since he got $20 from his birthday and $15 here and there for Christmas he's built up quite the nest egg and he doesn't mind spending it! His most recent purchase was a pair of sunglasses. They have zebra frames that flip up when you're indoors so you don't have to take off your sunglasses. You can just flip the shades down when you go back outside. He likes them because they are grown up size and he will wear them "forever."
