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!

Two darling granddaughters!!

I learned something new last week.. or should I say, I relearned something new last week. Something I had forgotten when my children grew up.  Do not leave two 3 years old girls unsupervised for more than 30 seconds!!! I had 2 of my darling little granddaughters at my house for 2 days and 2 nights. It was so much fun and I enjoyed it thoroughly, but I had forgotten how fast children that age can find "fun" things to do. Three year olds can empty a toy box, unroll toilet paper, change their clothes and find candy faster than I can turn around!
God designed us to have children when we were young for a reason!!
