Hmmm... the leaf shape looks familiar...
Looks like a variegated Abutilon (house maple)
Or perhaps a variegated Poinsettia?

Randy, my first thought is Sapium salicifolium. I also think variegated Euphorbia pulcherrima is a possibility. Crack a piece of one of the less showy leaves and see if it has milky sap.

I got a positive ID from the House Plant Forum... it's a Alternanthera ficoidea "Party Time".
