Isn't it wonderful being a parent, Alix???? You must be on top of the world with them both doing so fantastically! (Although if you managed to post some pics of your girls, we could oooh and ahhh even louder. hint, hint)

My kids are making me proud right now, too. My second son Nick just got a mortgage for his first house! He had saved enough money to make a really big down payment so he was able to get a mortgage even though he has very little credit established. I'm so happy for him. And my 18 year old son Sebastian just got his drivers license today! He passed the test with flying colors. And my little Fish lost his other front tooth. (That makes 5!) Oh, and yesterday was my 36th anniversary. So I'm smiling all over - life is good!

This is a little "off" for a smile...
We took our soda cans in to recycle after 3 years...... 17 bucks at 75 cents a lb.
It's the LACK of $$ we got that made me smile, because it means DH is actually drinking a ton less soda!!!!
Last time we took them it was also about 3 years worth, the price was 50 cents a lb and we got $40.
:)

Yay suzi! Thats good news! Glad to see your DH is making healthier choices.

Our recycling fees are different, its 5 cents per can. I wonder which way works out to more $?
