Seventeen blessings that make growing older worth the effort!!...and 2 more blessings since this picture was taken!

Wouldn't it be wonderful if your family were the envy of all your neighborhood? Not because your family had the biggest house, the fanciest car or the very best interior decorator.

The reason isn't that you are the parents of the most beautiful children, you have a "to die for spouse" and you command a 6 figure income.

The fact of the matter is, you don't own a fancy house, your car is a CarMax reject, and your interior decorator is the local Goodwill Store.

Is all of that important? No! What is important is that your family is "The Happiest Family on the Block"!

I will be sharing our secrets that worked with our 6 children, 6 sons and daughters-in-laws and 19 grandchildren! I will share secrets and ideas that we did do and wished we hadn't, things we didn't do, but wished we had, AND things we did do and are glad we got something right!! Hindsight is 20/20 you know!

The "happy family" revolves around:


Raising children





Hobbies- cooking, sewing, crafts, decorating

Making money


Being friends with your grown up children

Being the best grandparents you can be

Etc, etc, etc

Grab a cup of coffee, sit down, relax and let's visit!

The Baby's Home!!?!?!

Chapter Four -  New Baby

Your dream has come true.. you think??!! You had a fantastic pregnancy..maybe.. you had a wonderful experience in labor and delivery and now you are cuddling this precious little addition to your perfect family.
Mom, dad and baby are home........ baby has not stopping crying since you all pulled into the garage! "HELP! I can't do this!!!"
Well, I am here to tell you that you can do it.  I will help to guide you through the messy diapers, the sleepless nights, the spitup on the floor, the piled up dishes and the screaming baby that you love with all your tired, worn out, blue, crying heart!!
Where do we begin? Let's start with that sweet little screaming baby!! We've got to get him/her quiet so we can think!
