her 14 year old son wanted cash for christmas. that is all. just cash.
cash isn't fun to wrap.
after thinking about it, i got a fresh $100 bill from the bank (after holly had given me 5, $20 bills. i don't actually PAY for her christmas!) and stuck it in a metal bucket about half way full of water. i rolled the money up and clipped the top (that was not in the water) with a paper clip. after it was frozen solid, i removed the paper clip and filled it up the rest of the way.
then, we made hints all over the house on where he could find his gift. (which was on the back porch so it wouldnt thaw!).
i think holly and i had more fun with this one than he did!
