Lemonade Stands & Bravery

Today we held a garage sale at Grandma Suzanne's. It was great--we sold a lot, made some cash and got rid of things we didn't need any more. It was rainy at first so everyone was needed to cover things with tarps. Then finally it cleared and the sun was out to stay.

Joshua and Megan had talked about selling cookies & lemonade at the sale earlier in the week. Cookies didn't happen because we were so busy cleaning out closets & boxes. But we did make lemonade to sell.

When I suggested this they were all for it; however, when it came to doing it their enthusiasm left. In fact at first, Joshua was the only one willing to sit behind the table and "pour." Cousin Emily "helped" him until Megan came out. After me doing some convincing, they moved to the end of the driveway and scraped together their courage to ask people if they wanted to buy a cup for 10 cents. After that Megan came over and said "That wasn't as scary as I thought." You must be brave to run a lemonade stand!

Family His & Mine

When you put two people together from different families, sometime you find that there are different ways of doing the same thing. Even spaghetti . . .

We have had the discussion about spaghetti before and I due to being out numbered(the children always do it HIS way) I keep the noodles separate from the sauce when I serve it. At my mom's we just mix it together. It was even said if there were leftovers the next day--it was better after being with the noodles for longer. Steve would just shakes his head. There are hardly ever leftovers of spaghetti here--too many hungry children I guess.

Tonight when we had my family over for dinner and a party I served, you guessed it, spaghetti--actually spaghetti casserole. Ironically, Steve's mother's recipe--sauce mixed with noodles! So maybe he just likes the sauce separate and has me conned about the whole family thing.

Then we had angel food cake, strawberries and cool whip. Another family "preference." Do you stir your cool whip before serving or just scoop it out? Does it really put more fluff in it if you stir it? Just something to think about. :)
