Frozen, the bank, and sisters--very random!

After being a homebody for three weeks not by choice, I found out I really like it.  Except for the fact that I have to hear, "Momma, where we going?" no less than 2, 356 times a day.  Yesterday we finally went somewhere!  We went to see Frozen!  It did not disappoint!  I will be in line to buy it when it comes out on DVD.  (Sam really liked it too--he just didn't want to pause for a picture near the fountain!)

 Leigh has been saving her pennies, nickels, and dimes for quite a while now!  She finally had the $25 (she actually had $26) that is needed to open her very own savings account.  The plan is for this to be money she can have access to when she's grown!  We want to show them how saving a little along the way will really add up.  Maybe it will be part of a down payment on a house one day--who knows??!!  Right now, our girls just get $2 a week--$1.50 they can save to spend on something they want to buy, 25 cents to church, and 25 cents to this savings account.  Of course, $2 a week won't always be enough--but for now its great!  In the 2 years or so we have been doing this she has saved her money to buy a guitar and an American girl doll.  She bought the doll back in August and hasn't come across anything in particular she is saving her money for!  You can tell she was one proud girly today!

I love the fact that these two are best friends.  They say they are "best sisters forever"!  I absolutely love that and pray that will be true!  I haven't even seen much of them since Christmas even though we have all been in one house because they have been playing American girls as well as other things!  I sure do love them!  On a side note, I have been buying them non-matching clothes so that they can be individuals and all they want to do is match--ahhh!
