    Well, I must say, I went in to check for eggs (they gave me 3) and that was great. But I did threaten them with the stew pot as HenPen requested I do. I'm hoping to see 6 eggs in there tomorrow. HAHAAAA. Here are the pictures....

    I thought i would start out by threatening them with cooking their stud muffin...

    then the girls thought they would VOICE to me how they felt....
    "ummm excuse me? your gonna do what?? i promise to lay an egg everyday.. ppllleeeaasseeeee look at me batting my eyes"

    then she got a little mad and thought she would yell at me.......
    "ill go on strike!" she said...
