IF LIFE HANDS YOU LEMONS......



YOU CAN MAKE A PIE ...
(click on recipe to enlarge...it really does sound delicious)

or ...................


OPEN A
LEMMONADE STAND

(and YOU thought LEMMON was spelled LEMON !!)
(don't you love it ?)


The MEMAW had to get in the swing of things with this
TOTALLY TANGY T-SHIRT,
don't 'cha know....


JUST BEFORE ALL THE CUSTOMERS CAME


JUST AFTER ALL THE CUSTOMERS CAME...


The LEMMONADE really was delicious and it was icy cold...

and SWEET


The MEMAW got to hang out for awhile with BROOKS, one of the older grandsons and that was
the SWEET treat of the afternoon !!
He is 15, has a girlfriend, and the MEMAW doesn't get to be with him as much as the other sweet
grandkids....
(I must be crazy to post this photo of myself after being in the sun all day but I am too proud of
having my picture made with such a sweetheart, it overrode my vain self and won !! ;O)

(Isn't he the most handsome thing, ever !!...MY LITTLE MAN, ALWAYS)
Beautiful Daughter, Stacy, spent the whole day, getting things ready for this
cute stand. She is such a good mon! I AM PROUD !

"WHAT A FABULOUS AFTERNOON WE HAD.....
DOWN AT THE CORNER LEMMONADE STAND !"

love, bj aka THE MEMAW
RED ALERT.....RED ALERT...
IF YOU HAVEN'T BEEN OVER TO
NIKKI'S BLAH, BLAH, BLAH BLOG TODAY,
RUN, DON'T WALK.....
SHE HAS THE CUTEST POST TODAY AND SOOOO FUNNY...
I SPIT COFFEE ALL OVER MY COMPUTER WHEN I WAS READING IT !!!!!

Sounds like the perfect afternoon, hangin with the grands at the lemonade stand:>) He's a handsome boy, no doubt about that!

Twice as Nice said...

Such a great picture of you and your grandson. He's a doll. What's up with the kids haircuts today? My son looked just like your grandson up until a few days ago when he decide to get a hair cut(I was so shocked that he would part with his "mop" lol). While I let my son have the long hair I don't quite get the "style" or lack of one. I can see his forehead for the first time in years.LOL

Beautiful grandbabies...but did you notice your handsome grandson's smile is just like yours! The apple...errrr lemon didn't fall far from the tree....You BOTH look awesome!

PS Crumpet says he'll come clean the coffee off your keyboard...he feels responsible lol

Brown-Eyes said...

Hi BJ...what's wrong with those West Texan people? They should have slurped that "lemmonade" jar dry...LOL. Your grandson is growing into a mighty fine looking young man and at 15 you know you must be loved by him if he spent the day with Memaw. ;-) Bo

Rudy's Mom said...

You are such a dear friend and have such a wonderful relationship with your grandkids. Bring me a cup of that "lemmonade" when you come to AZ. I'll get the 50 cents ready!!

I love your "lemon" philosophy of life.... so true! And I love the new appearance of your blog, love the new banner and colors, much appealing! Beautiful!

By the way, your grandson looks a lot like his grandma... I bet he is a wonderful Youngman, sweet, kind, and capable of exercising and responding to love, just like his grandma! :)

We love you!

BJ,

Your grands are beautiful and the lemonade looks delicious. There is nothing like homemade lemonade on a hot summer day.

Love the photo of you and your grandson. Once they get girlfriends we don't get to spend as much time with them.

Blessings,

How fun! Whenever I see a lemonaid stand that kids have up I always stop and get a glass. Now I can't say I always drink them but they don't know that. LOL
