benefits

u may wonder how u get ur kids outside on a saturday morn early...when it's like 40 degrees...and get them smiling.

benefits...bribery of sorts.

lesson #1
if you don't give ur kiddos donuts regularly, when they see them...they will do just about anything to get them!



Lesson #2...
refer to lesson 1, insert hubby in place of kiddos

lesson #3...
face painting!  yes!  use the donut trick first, then throw out this bone.
(brooke loves her 'unihorn'...which really is a much better name)

...and the real reason...their friend has Mitochondrial Disease.
abigail rocks my face off!
please pray for her and her family!

Those are great pictures. We use bribery here too. It can be very effective in certain situations. :)

Will do on the prayers for Abigail and her family.

I wish I had to bribe my kids to get up early on the weekend! They're awful to get up for school, but then wake up at the crack of dawn on the weekends.
