Scentsy Customer Incentive Program

I am starting a new customer incentive program. I am trying to grow my business, so I am asking friends and family if they know anyone who likes candles and might be interested in getting some Scentsy. I will give you 1 free bar (scent of your choice) for every 5 names you give me. I will call them and ask them if they have heard of Scentsy. I will also ask if they are interested in having a home party or a basket party. I appreciate your help. Please if you want to take advantage of this offer, please leave a comment or email me the names.

Who peed in the shoe box?

Last Sunday Clayton came up the stairs with no pants on and he was saying, "I just got a little pee on my pants." So I asked him why was there pee on his pants. And he says, "Well, I had to pee in a little box." What little box? I asked him. I go down stairs with him and he pulls out a wet shoe box out of a cabinet. At least he put his pee away. I told him not to pee in boxes anymore and to please walk up the stairs to the bathroom. I love my boys, but boys are gross!

Sisters Or Sister In Laws?

I worked at Allen & Peterson a couple of weeks ago on a Wednesday night for their pre-grand opening. My brother in law is now managing that store and he asked me and others in the family to help out that night. Of course his wife, my sister in law, Jenn was there helping too. A bunch of other people who worked there normally (I don't know any ones names) could not believe we were not sisters. She told them, "nope, just sister in laws." I don't think they believed her. Actually, everywhere we go people think we are sisters. I think people in the ward we live in still think we are sisters. So, what do you think? Do we really look that much alike that we really could pass as sisters? We don't think so, although I would clam her as my real life sister any day.
