Jackee said their 2-year-old son Leo is very familiar with the shredder because he helps her shred junk mail and other important documents. It just may take a while for the them to get it back, as the office's website says there are lengthy wait times.
Leo apparently sent the envelope through the shredder sometime when they weren't looking.
Ben Belnap is a huge Utah Utes fan, and when his parents gifted him with season tickets to the sports team, he was over the moon.
The couple told WHNT News that the envelope, containing $1,060 in cash, disappeared last weekend. "I've never heard of a kid shredding a grand", Leo's father said of the money they had been saving for a year.
While they're upset, the Jackee and Ben have had a good sense of humor about it all.
Their two-year-old son helps shred junk mail, and was trying to be helpful.
May treats Conservative Party conference to a dance
The PM's dancing was most recently mocked as she joined in with dancing pupils and scouts on a recent trade trip to Africa . Well, she's been at it again, having been seen jiving awkwardly onto the stage at the Tory Party Conference today.
When they opened the shredder, they found that he had chose to shred something on his own: The envelope filled with the hard-earned cash.
First, Belnap cried, she said - just for a minute. "We didn't know what to do and then I broke the silence and I'm like, 'Well, this will make a great wedding story one day, '" Jackee told KSLTV.
Thankfully there is some light at the end of the tunnel for the couple with the US Department of Treasury confirming they may be eligible to get all their money back.
"Honestly in my heart, I said some day this is going to be really amusing", Ben agreed, adding that most parents only have to deal with their kids drawing on their walls. It just may take a couple of years.
The family is expected to get the money from the federal government in the next one to two years.
The couple said Leo is now banned from going near the shredder.
