Girl Scout Cookies

Amelia was excited to sell Girl Scout cookies this year. She was a little nervous at first going door-to-door to our neighbors' houses, but she quickly got the hang of it, and even asked to go out selling cookies a few more time.  Unfortunately, the weather was cold and nasty almost the entire month of February, so we only got out three times, for about 20 minutes each time, before we got too cold and had to come inside.  Here's how we sell Girl Scout cookies in Wisconsin:

She LOVED selling cookies at the booth in the grocery store with her Daisy friends from school.  She cried when I told her it was time to go home so other girls could have a chance to sell cookies at the booth.  Her troop leader said she was the most helpful girl there; Amelia loved to crawl underneath the table to get the cases out to restock the cookies on the table.  I wish I had grabbed a photo of their booth - it was so cute with balloons and a pretend oven.  The girls even had aprons and chefs hats with their troop number.

She sold about 50 boxes, almost half Thin Mints, then Caramel Delights, then Peanut Butter patties, then only 1 or 2 boxes each of Shortbread, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, and Lemonades.


  1. Hilarious! Deliveries with a sled. I'm surprised that Thin Mints made up half of the orders. They are good, but so are Caramel Delights and Shortbread!
