No, I Don't!!

In the world of blogs, I feel like sometimes I just don't fit in.
No, I don't run marathons.
No, I don't drink caffeinated drinks.

and, No I haven't read any of the Twilight Books.
Is there something wrong with me?? (I don't think so)

A Very Helpful Book!!

Because one style of parenting doesn't work for all children. (or we would just get a how-to book when they are born). This book was recommended to us by a therapist, remember I have nine children 24-4, we found it very helpful and I wished we had had it sooner.

1-2-3 Magic for Christian Parents:

Effective Discipline for Children 2-12

The book is divided into three steps. First you learn how to control obnoxious behavior. Second you learn seven methods for encouraging appropriate and positive behavior. Finally you lean how to maintain healthy relationships.

This program is simple, effective, and can be implemented immediately. Addressing everything from homework and chores to more serious tantrums and fighting, this guide teaches parents to take charge-yet refrain from any physical discipline or yelling-leading to happier parents, better behaved children, and a more peaceful home environment.

Despite the title, there is really no magic, but instead precise tools in helping parents to resolve their children's discipline issues.

Alissa Turns "21"

Time is flying by, my kids are growing up so fast. When you have babies you see yourself as a young family with lots of children, but you soon realize that they don't stay small for very long.

Breakfast at Kneaders

Yummy Food

Adam Welsh & Alissa Williams
(the AW Birthdays)

Donny and I enjoyed a great breakfast with Alissa at Kneaders, Then Alissa and her friend Adam had planned a party together. Great food of pork, rice and salads. So many of Alissa's friends.
We left early so we didn't cramp her style :-)
