Uncle of the Year

I know Addie would never play favorites with her uncles...but if she were going to give an award for Uncle of the Year....I think my brother Ryan might have it in the bag. He has had to travel a lot the past few months for his job (he is an engineer and travels all over the U.S. and Canada). He has been to Nebraska, Colorado, California and Alaska all within the last few months and even though he is running around like a chicken with his head cut off, he still always finds time to buy Addie a gift from each of his stops. While he was in Alaska, he bought her a stuffed moose and pop-up book. While he was in Colorado, he bought her a pink piggy bank. Unfortunately, the piggy bank did not survive the trip home. But after a tube of glue and some major creativity, Ryan was able to get the piggy bank back together. It's not the cutest thing in the world...but it does hold money which is all that matters. Ryan was still a litle bummed about the busted piggy so while he was in California last week, he got Addie a brand new one to add to her collection. This one made it home just fine. As you can see....Addie loves it! I think her favorite part is watching Uncle Ryan dump all his loose change into it. Addie is going to have one hell of a shopping spree at Toys-R-Us when she figures out how to bust those things open :-)
