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!

Too Cute!

I was with my daughter and her two little girls the other day. Her little two year old, Margaret, loves anything hot and spicy, and was eating "hot fries". She had been munching for a while when she declared,"I all done now." After a short pause, she looked up at her mom and asked, "Mommy, why is the sun in my mouth?"

It reminds me when I was a teenager, my 3yr old niece at a sleepover with me and she had a bad cold. That night I rubbed some Vicks on her chest and told her it would help her cold. After a few minutes, she said, "OK, you can take it off now, I'm warm."
