gifts that make you go hmmmmm?

We don't go in for big gifts for birthdays, anniversary, or Mother's/Father's day. But the kids do like to give gifts.  They get all secretive and hide things in closets and giggle because they think we have no idea what they're up to.  I've got my share of homemade bookmarks, beaded necklaces, and magnets.  Some I keep, others (shhhhh! do not tell them this!) get "misplaced."  Teresa made sure I'd have a hard time losing this years homemade Mother's day gift.  Am I horrible that the first thing that popped into my head upon receiving it was, "how long before I can recycle this thing?"

It's a model of our family at home  Kate and I are in the kitchen making dinner, Joe is just coming in the door from work, Sam is on the laptop in the other room, and Teresa is holding up the wall looking pretty.  Teresa made sure to use dolls she doesn't play with so I display it FOREVER.  Lucky me.
