Isn't this amazing??? Eli recieved his Legos catalog yesterday and he saw this amazing Death Star. A $400 Death Star. He immediately begged for it for Christmas. Chad and I laughed and said, 'No way, buddy, it is way too much money." Eli teared up and said, 'Then Santa will bring it to me." And Chad said, "Uh, Santa is on a budget this year and he won't be bringing it to you either." Eli cried for a bit as I was trying to explain to him that $400 is ALOT of money for a toy and God wouldn't want us to spend our money so foolishly. Then Chad gave Eli a choice, either get the Death Star for Christmas or go to Disney and the beach next summer. Eli hemmed and hawed for a bit and then chose the Death Star. WHAT?? He said, " Mom, that is so AWEEESOOME! I weally weally want it. " Well, we obviously vetoed his choice and told him if he wanted it so badly then he needed to save his money. So Eli is saving $400 plus shipping and handling.
On another note, I cancelled our cable service today. My name is Manda and I am a TVaholic. It has become an idol in my life and it has to go. Sayonara! Ciao! Auf Wiedersehen! Arrivederci! Au revoir! Shalom! Adios! BYE BYE!!
