the apple doesn't fall far from the tree

The girls have set up shop in our playroom and me and Brian are their best customers. They are selling anything they can - including Halloween candy and would even like tips! They asked me to leave my contact information as I was checking out, too. Notice the cat mannequins they made, "just like mommy".


  1. Gina, I love this...when I was little I had a "store" called the My Stars Bookmark Shop. Back when rubber stamping was the rage, I made bookmarks like there was no tomorrow. I set up shop in our foyer, designed flyers for my dad to photocopy and distribute at work, and made a recorded greeting on my tape recorder that would play whenever a "customer" would enter the store. I don't think tips even crossed my mind, though...must be the Starbucks generation!!! Great work Lila and Edie!

  2. This made me smaile this AM - Thanks so much for commenting and sharing!!! It was in your blood! :) I cannot belive you had a recorder -too funny! Lila has business cards that she passes out - a possible furture in design, hmmm???? I, too, was a business woman when I was younger and sold easy bake oven creations door to door.
