Great church today! The contemporary band is playing. I love the song selections! Very uplifting even in the time of lent. Even Ben is smiling!

We need to sell out so we can get out of the cold!

Yesterday at our booth sale, Ainsley had an entire grocery cart fall over and land on her head.  Now granted she was hanging on the side when it happen (which she shouldn’t have been doing).  But it was still an accident.  That girl wailed for 30 minutes.  I had to go inside Walmart and buy her an instant cold pack.  But that girl stood by the booth holding an ice pack on her head and SOLD COOKIES. That’s right. She got the sympathy sales.  But she stood there with red rimmed eyes, dried tears on her face, and an ice pack on her head and still was asking people to buy cookies.  She was a great example to some of my older girls in the troop who won’t ask anyone.

But then again, it is a part of her DNA, and you can’t hold a good man down.  My girl is good.

 

p.s. Daddy came and got her.  He took her home.  After that kind of injury she deserved a night off from selling!

Cookie booths are fun!

We just spent 4 hours at Walmart selling cookies. We sold a ton of cookies! So much that we nearly sold out of everything that we had. So the cookie mom and I went and got 86 cases of cookies just to get through the weekend (there are 5 more booths this weekend).
Madie and I have two booths. I have high hopes for both! Madie wants to sell 300 total for herself. I hope she makes it!

Ben met a new friend at church. They were like two peas in a pod. Comparing notes they figured out that they both had mrs. Sellars for kindergarten and were both in gymnastics. Ben was so excited he forgot to ask her what her name was. The conversation was so exciting that both myself and the other mom had to keep shushing them. It was a good night. And it was awesome that we found new friends from the other church (both Lutheran churches are celebrating lent together). Ben is looking forward to next week already and that is saying something.

Madie had a friend spend the night last night.  Sweet girl. The two of them decided to spend the night in a tent in the backyard last night.  Of course, that meant I slept on the couch and I made Chris padlock the gate.  But surprisingly the girls made it the whole night.  They had so much fun.  They decided to go back in the tent this morning and play.  Even Ainsley went and joined in the fun.  Well, Ben didn’t want to miss out on the fun too.  So he dressed in his ninja costumes (including guns and swords) and attacked the girls in the tent.  When the initial attack didn’t have the results he was looking for (the exodus of all girls from the tent), he took a water hose to the tent.  Yes. A water hose. Now everything is wet.  The tent. The girls. The books. The blankets. The sleeping bags.  They are sopping wet.  Yuck.  Ben still is laughing.  Of course, when the girls came and told me, I walked outside and giggled too.  I did not help the situation.  But boy, I am mad at the work that I have to do now!  Double yuck!

At least everyone had a good time!  Now on to cleaning up the mess!
