It's true! It's that time of year again!
The door to door sales actually occur in the freezing days of late January, the cookies that were pre-ordered have been or are being delivered, so now it's time for cookie booths!
Now march in Indy is a crap shoot - and I I wouldn't say we got the crap, but it wasn't glorious either! Walmart made us set-up our booth outside and although it was hovering around 50, it was overcast and a little windy, so it felt much colder than it should have. After about 30 minutes, I called hubby to bring me a warmer coat and a lap blanket (now don't feel sorry for the kids, they were dressed well and they were busy moving around trying to persuade people to shell out $3.50 box a box of love!). Anyway, next year I will suggest different outfits, like these below!!
I think the girls would look darling and probably sell a ton for cookies just because people would feel sorry for them, don't you?
On the other hand, I'm more like this poor girl.....
don't get me wrong, I LOVE eating them, I just hate all the door to door stuff - both the orders and the delivering! The booths aren't so bad - when they're done, they're done! I'll be glad when the girls get the rest of their orders delivered - why can't people know to be home when we are trying to deliver their cookies?
