Papa's Magic Donut Tree

We can't take credit for this idea but its the BEST. One of my best friends, Jenise shared this idea with me that she grew up doing and our boys LOVE it every single time! Makes for really fun memories with Papa! If you have little ones you should do it just to see their sweet faces...its like Christmas morning all over again.

Watch out...bed head alert...AND THE DONUT TREE

Lookie there...that tree "dun" grew donuts over night

Hurry, hurry don't let Buddy eat 'em off the tree
