Refurbished Lemons

As most of you know, Jim just got back from a week in Alabama, helping with clean up in Hackleburg.


The boys were so obsessed with the families whose lives were turned upside down by the tornadoes.   They wanted to help, but what can kids in Northern Illinois do to help people 13 hours away----hold a few lemonade stands!


Can I just say that I am so blessed to have Jim as my husband!   Seriously, he can turn out a table made from 4x4 scraps and an old bank countertop in no time flat!

Hang our huge chalkboard/goodwill sofa painting for a menu board.
Prime, prime, prime!!!
Spray paint YELLOW and tada!
If you're local, Friday we will be at my sister's garage sale and Saturday we will be out in front of our house during the parade.


If you're not local and still want to help, I'd gladly ship cookies but I'd have to see how much shipping would be....otherwise, the super fantastic easy way would be to donate directly to

Is that not the cutest lemonade stand ever!! Fantastic! The chalkboard is a brilliant idea!

I hope the boys do really well. And great timing with the parade coming up.

I can't pass up a lemonade stand, expecially this time of year! Good luck, and I'm awfully thankful that your kids care!
