MOORE, Oklahoma (NBC NEWS) -- A little treasure in the debris of a home that once welcomed Rebecca Garland's four grandchildren gave her such a delight as her friends and family scoured the mountain of rubble for any mementos left behind by Monday's powerful tornado.

"This is where we measured the kids' height!" she exclaimed as her son Lee held up a piece of a wall showing the rising tick-marks as his three boys and little girl grew taller and taller -- her "sugars," she calls them. "Oh! Oh! ... That's priceless."

"Little stuff like this," said Lee, 41. "It can go in the new house."

The cost of the storm is expected to climb as high as two billion dollars.
