Ali went potty!!!

Alexandria went potty! On the toilet! Like I've been begging her to do for several months now. Would you like to know what finally gave? I told her she could have a piece of candy if she went potty on the toilet!!!! I should have known- my kids LOVE candy, as do most, so I should have guessed that would be the key to motivating her. Sure enough, I can't keep her off the potty now! She asks to go every ten minutes trying to earn some "Canny." Isaiah and Sydney are howling mad that they didn't get a piece but I really want to reserve it for successful potty trips only. That way it will motivate them too. One of them is next as soon as Ali gets the hang of it. Please pray that this will stick and we're on our way to one less kid in diapers!

M&M's are good...small so they don't get that much candy, but they still love 'em.
Know that I'm here praying!
Psalm 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

Am here praying!
Psalms 27:1, 4-5 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?...One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple. For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.

So? Is she still going potty in the potty?
Lifting up prayers!
Psalms 27:7-9 Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me. When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek. Hide not thy face far from me...thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
