Fresh Lemonade, Cookies and Makeovers!

For weeks Eleanor has been wanting to have a lemonade stand to earn some money. (We are trying to teach her about money and having her buy things with her own money). This girl wanted to sell every single item in our home. She even wanted me to print off some photos from our photo booth on our computer. You know, the ones that make you look like an alien or really really large. It took a lot of work but we finally convinced her to stick with lemonade, chocolate chip cookies and of course her makeovers. Her makeovers were a screaming deal. She made and sold coupons for $.50 but if you didn't buy the coupon and wanted a makeover another time it would cost you $5,500. As you can see, I have amazing friends who willing got makeovers!! The lemonade was a huge hit. (Of course it was because it was the real deal, using lemons from Mimi and Grandpa's tree). Even after everything was cleaned up and put in side we got a knock on the door from a boy asking for more. He even brought a new friend with him.

The little stinker made $19.00. Not too bad for an hour. I'm pretty sure we'll be having a few more lemonade stands this summer.
