Collections

So most people collect stuff. I myself collect things with La Virgen de Guadalupe on it. My collection includes, candles, calendars, nail clippers, and blankets. Just to name a few.

The Phi is also collector. She is a souviner penny collector. You know what I am talking about. Those machines that press the penny for you with a picture and name of where you are visiting. We started her collection while we were in Hawaii on our honeymoon and since then she has added pennies from Santa Barbara, Solvang, Sea World, Seattle (thanks Nina), Old Town San Diego, even Disneyland. She recently filled up one of those souvenir book and is ready to fill another one.

When we are places we are always on the look out for these penny machines and The Phi is super stoked when we find a machine somewhere.

So what do you or your kids collect?
