candy jars

For family home evening this past monday we made candy jars. Each person decorated their jar and filled it with their favorite candies. The catch is that if you are mean to anyone through out the day you have to give them a piece of your candy. If you are nice the whole day.. you get to pick a piece from your own jar. The kids loved this project. As always we concluded our FHE with a prayer.. this time given by Jordon and it went something like this.
" heavenly father thank you for this day, please help daddy find a job, please keep daddy safe, help me be nice and if I am not nice I have to give somebody candy. Help Brianna and Jereme not to be nice so they can give me candy, name of Jesus Christ amen"
How could we not laugh... kids are so honest in their thinking... you know secretly all of us are thinking the same thing.

That is funny! I love that FHE idea though, I think we might try that here too!

Great idea!--My kids are so candy obsessed already, I'm not sure that I want to add to their addiction!--

That prayer just cracked me up!

Your kids are so cute! (I know I keep telling you that but I'm serious!)

WOW. Doug and I just had a good laugh about that prayer. Hilarious.

Kinda reminds me of that Shel Silverstein poem:
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
And if I die before I wake
I pray the Lord my toys to break
So none of the other kids can play with them

Such a neat idea. That's one I'll have to try and remember for future years.
I just love the things that kids say. So honest, so uncut, so precious.
