Hip Hip Horray!

Ever since our kids were young we have had the tradition of rewarding them whenever they give a talk in church. When we get home, whoever gave the talk or scripture stands on our table and we chant, "hip hip horray, hip hip horray, hip hip horray!" while they bask in their glory. They then get rewarded two candy bars while the rest of us get one or they get a gigantic cookie while we get a regular size. Today McKay gave his first talk in sacrament meeting (which is in front of about 250 people!) and he chose peach cobbler for his dessert. As you can see, his is much bigger than the rest. Whenever the teachers ask for volunteers to give talks, they wonder why the Madsen kids are begging and pleading to be chosen!
There is no harm in bribery-I still get nervous giving a talk!

I will have to remember this the next time I need someone to give a talk in Primary.
