Last November, Cindy's mom gave us a giant smiley face bank and suggested we put $2 a day in it to save spending money for our trip to Alaska. We have never done very well at saving money so this seemed like a great idea. We didn't manage to feed it $2 every day, but we fed the face often and sometimes put in more than the requiste $2.
Today we pried the smiley face open to reveal a wonderful little nest of money for our trip which starts on Sunday. Thanks for the bank Bonnie and for the idea. We are going to put the face back together and start feeding it again. It's fun to save money!
