They have Arrived

The cookies are here. Now we have more than 600 boxes of cookies to deliver to nearly 200 people. Liza worked hard to get most of the sales, Jeremie worked hard to get the rest. Its all good though. The wall is hidden behind stacks, and the back of the car is filled up for deliveries that will be made tomorrow at Jer's office. Next will be the doctors office and the Orem boxes. The hardest part is going to be delivering the cookies around the neighborhood. Liza will have gotten more than $100 in activity credits that she has almost completely planned out how to use. She cant wait to go on an overnighter with Mom and a prom-like He and Me dance with Daddy in June. She is also going to plant a tree during Earth week with Daddy and a few other things. She sold enough boxes that she has also earned a beenie cap and a wristlette purse. She is so excited. It makes me laugh to see how happy and anxious she is to get them out. Its like watching her come to the end of a long journey.

My kids have been very funny these last two days. Last night I told Liza to get in the car so we could run to Walmart. She asks, "The car?" I look at her flatly and say, "No, the zamboni." She walks into the garage, and I assume she is getting into the car. About 30 seconds later, she opens the door, sticks her head in and innocently asks, "What's a zamboni and where is it?" I laughed for at least 20 minutes. I'm still chuckling when I think about it. Not to be outdone, PJ says to me today, "When I am 88 and a half, you and daddy will be grounded." He doesn't have a clue about how right he is. I certainly do not plan to live to 115. I don't think Jer does either.

  1. I want to know what you and daddy did to deserve to get "grounded?" What if you get "ashed" instead? hahaha
