A few weeks ago, before Thanksgiving, I stopped at Michael's with Katie and Matthew. They saw a stuffed penguin decoration and fell in love with it. They named him Peep. They hugged him and talked to him and spent the rest of the day talking to him. Let me get something straight. We didn't buy him! They pretended to talk to Peep on their imaginary cell phones! All day!
He was $25. I thought that was too much and that's not what I went into Michael's for anyway. Jump forward to Thursday, December 6th. Dan and I stopped by Michael's to find a replacement stocking for Matthew, (since we moved, we can't find his), and saw Peep on sale. Dan didn't even know about the whole thing with Peep and the kids. He just thought it was cute and would go well with the rest of our Christmas decorations. Now, Peep was on clearance and almost 50% off. Couldn't pass that up!
