It’s a scene, man.

No really.  It was a crazy Girl Scout cookie scene around our house this weekend. Still kind of is, at least until we can get all these cookies delivered and out the door.


Look one way in our dining room, and there are piles of cookies…


Look the other way, and more cookies…


And in the other corner? We have…yep, more cookies…


I know I have been bragging a bit, ok, a LOT about my Emma lately. And if you can stand it, I just need to do a wee bit more. I am so very proud of her. It really is very fulfilling to watch her literally blossom in front of our eyes. She worked so very hard  to get the cookie orders put together. She read the orders and filled out the thank you and payment slips, while J. and Addie pulled the cookie boxes together and then I bundled them up all pretty-like. It was a nice little assembly line we had going on.

But then, while J. and I were out yesterday afternoon, Em went and made special thank you notes for all of her customers who bought a lot of boxes. And that is why I have to make this my Best Shot for this fine Monday.


Beyond the chaos, Em’s bedhead and jammies, and the hundreds of boxes of cookies we have to get delivered, I only see my sweet little girl working so hard to become a responsible big girl. And it just makes me smile.

  1. Way to go, Em! I was pleasantly surprised with the cranberry cookies. I usually stick to the tried and true (well, bought those too!) but the cranberry ones were really good.

  2. I don’t know if I could handle all those cookie around (LOL)!
    I love how intently she is working in that last picture.

  3. You have every reason to be a proud mama. How sweet is that? Making extra Thank You cards for the big orders is definitely above and beyond.

  5. I was just asking Michelle about them last night. Let me know via email how you want to work out the arrangements. I can taste the cookies already!! :-)

  6. wow, now that’s a lot of GS cookies!!! and wow, what a very mature young lady. Writing out special thank you notes is way above and beyond. WTG, Em! You have every right to be proud. I’m definitely going to get N invovled in Girl Scouts once she is old enough!
