Lovin' It

For the past few months every day after lunch Desi has scurried out to our mailbox, usually barefoot, to get the mail. She is usually barefoot and can barely see into the box while on tiptoes, but she really loves being the one to bring it in. All my kids do...





... So it was an exciting day in the kitchen last Thurs. when into our house was brought a big white envelope addressed to our family from the Utah State Capitol. The Governers Summer Reading challenge worked! (Have any of you ever done this?) I wasn't sure if the free happy meal tickets were ever really going to come through for us, but they did- along with a few other cupons and some official looking certificates of completion. I know my friend Steph F. would say rewarding kids with anything McDonalds is counterproductive to their overall well-being (sure they can read but what about their future cholestrol count?!?). Nevertheless, there we were at McD's Thursday evening, and the kids were "lovin' it."


P.S. I am going to be trying to figure out how make the blog private here soon so you can email me if you would like an invitation! Thanks a lot.

We did the Summer reading program too, and have already used the McyD ones, Madagascar 2 is out! I liked it better last year when they gave out free passes to the State Fair and Free ride tickets. It was better in my opinion. I don't know if we will use the other free meals. I mean Sizzler?? Are you for real?

I Like it open then people who know you in the area can still read this and keep up I wish most people would keep it open. I know alot of people say do not but I keep the boys open and I wish every one would read it and keep bloging but most of all I wish people would write to Jesse as a family or even email him this is what keeps him going each week.
It has to be up to you but keeping it open is more fun.

I was too lazy to send in the papers, but it looks like it paid off.
I would love an invite to read your blog. I'll probably be doing that same thing at the first of the new year.

As Chy would say...."Thank you for contributing to the obesity of the world". I say, whatever works! I always save the info, but we never send it in. Good to know it works.

I want an invite when you go private, please.
