FREE, Kool-Aid for Sale!

You're looking at THE happiest kid on the block!!! For as long as I can remember, Nora has wanted to set up a Kool-Aid stand. But how do you explain it to a 5 year old we live in the back of the neighborhood and there will not be any customers!??!?!?

today it certainly wasn't planned but while the twins were napping she and I were outside. I was working on squaring up a quilt on the driveway and she was beggin me to help her play Kool-aid stand.

She created her own sign and drug out the package of paper towels... you know for, ..."Just in case we have any spills momma!" ;) Did I mention that she was SOOOO HAPPY?

So what's a momma to do? The Christmas wreath Rubbermaid was conveniently still sitting in the garage so I pulled it out to the end of the driveway.

It didn't take her long to spot some potential customers... and she started yelling, "FREEeee Kool-Aid for Sale! Come get your FREE Kool-Aid HERE"

she yelled it a few dozen times...b/c

about 2 doors down, standing out in the driveway was this young couple with two small children. They heard her yelling and decided to walk down. ;)

Lookie - here they come!

Can you tell she's excited about her customers on the way to her Kool-Aid stand?

It appears that "Black Cherry" is a hit with the customers!

So Nora is it "for sale" or is it "free" ????? She explains that "it's BOTH momma! I want all the kids to be able to have some, so it's free that way their momma can't say that she doesn't' have any money for buying her kids some."

Awllll. What a sweet heart!

I'm so proud of my girl!

and yes Nora.... I "pinky promise" that we will do this again one day.

But let's please wait until it's warmer outside and perhaps even plan it with some advertising - you know posters and such so people can come - you know it's all about location! location! location!!!

Sure wish Daddy would come home from work already! It's getting cold sitting out here waiting on him....
