A while back my parents went out of town for the weekend for a mini vacation. My Mom is one of those people who always has to buy a little something to bring home to everyone. She also likes to be sneaky about it and drop little hints as to what the gift may be...
My hints were:
"It's an old friend..."
"It's someone that you haven't seen in a really long time..."
*Drum roll please*
Here's what she got for me...it's a giant piggy bank! Lol!
As you can see my new piggy friend a little bit cross-eyed ;)
Her paint job isn't the best and I almost wonder if I could just repaint her completely. I wonder what kind of paint I would use?
Late last year my Mom and I were going through some old pictures and we came across these of my first piggy bank. I told her that I was so sad when it got broke years ago. Little to my knowledge my Mom had been searching for a new pig for me since Christmas!
I used to love that pig! I saved all of my pennies (and the occasional quarter, nickel, or dime) for years. I remember when my parents had company over that I would hit people up for the change they had in their pockets. I even got the occasional dollar bill folded up and stuffed inside!
So anyway, my Mom is just the best Mom ever and I love my new piggy bank! :) And just to let you know all of those years ago I saved up my pennies and bought a brand new hot pink banana seat bicycle - complete with pink and white streamers!
Who knows what I'll save my pennies up for this time?
