Until our daughter showed up from school with this: TADAH!!!
Meet our new pet fish. Apparently, she won them in the school raffle. She left home with a list of people she needed to get gift for at the Christmas Bazaar and $10, and she came back with FISH.
From what I can deduce, she bought me earring for $1, and them sunk the rest of the money into the raffle. There is a silver lining somewhere in there, right?
