If Children Are Cheaper By The Dozen...can I get a discount on six? ~~Book review

Have you ever thought that you could write a book about your life that other people would enjoy reading? I know I could write a book but I do not know that anyone else would enjoy it at all. But I found a book that as I read it I was so glad that this lady decided to share her life with us in a book. The book is titled If Children Are Cheaper By The Dozen...can i get a discount on six?

From the Book:

A mass exodus to the ER for a child to regurgitate possibly swallowed pills, blow-drying a half-naked toddler's pants in a museum restroom, hauling several youngsters up and down hills after a stroller collapses - these are the everyday experiences of a mother of six. In her quirky, lighthearted memoir, If Children Are Cheaper By The Dozen, Can I Get a Discount on Six? Elizabeth Kathleen shares the mayhem of mothering a busy household.
Embracing the pressures of a crowded household, Elizabeth maintains positivity to meet each challenge. From clothing mishaps to outlandish pets, this family has seen it all. Things as simple as washing a dog turn into a comedy event when there are half a dozen extra minds in the mix. Follow the fun-filled account of raising six children born within seven years, Shiloh, Abigail, Josiah, Elijah, and twins Isaiah and Loru, and experience a glimpse of family life that would leave you asking, If Children Are Cheaper By The Dozen...Can I Get a Discount on Six?

About the Author:

Elizabeth Kathleen has spent the last twenty-two years of her life in research for this book. She has studied the eating, sleeping, playing, and educational habits of the average American child, hers. She and her family reside in rural Ohio.

My Thoughts:

I don't know that I have ever laughed so hard when reading a book in my life! The different situations that this family finds themselves in on a regular basis is just too funny. I am sure they were not funny to them at the time, but I am glad that she was willing to share these moments for the rest of us to laugh at (and with) them now. She starts out with the funniest story ever at the doctor's office when she first found out she was pregnant. The nurse sent her in the restroom with a 32 oz container for her to get a urine sample in. Elizabeth "thought" she had to fill up this container, so she was in the bathroom for over an hour. Finally the nurse offers her some water, in which she gladly accepts, and proudly walks out of the bathroom with her cup almost running over! Thank goodness I was not pregnant, or did not have to use the bathroom, as I was reading this because I would have surely wet myself.

This is just one of the MANY funny stories that Elizabeth shares in her book If Children Are Cheaper By The Dozen...Can I Get a Discount on Six? If you have had some funny (and maybe embarassing) situations with your family, or if you have not began your family yet, you will love reading this book. Get your book today from Tate Publishing http://www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore/book.php?w=978-1-61663-762-0 or Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Children-Cheaper-Dozen-Discount-ebook/dp/B004EPYM1U

I promise you that you will laugh often while reading this book.

Charter Moms

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Charter. All opinions are 100% mine.

Are you a mom that would love to voice your opinion? If so, I would like to share Charter Moms with you. Charter Communications, Inc. is a Fortune 500 company and the fourth-largest cable operator in the US.  They have developed a facebook page for moms to share their opinions. Here is what they have to say...

CharterMomsLogo

Moms... It is YOUR turn. We want to hear from you. Join the brand new Charter Mom's Panel Facebook Page ( http://www.facebook.com/#!/CharterMoms) to tell us what you love and what we could do to make you happy. We're always looking for new and better ways to connect with you and naturally, to entertain you and your families. You'll be the first to know about new services and programming and we hope you'll help to guide us as we look to make Charter stronger than ever.

Charter wants us moms to tell them what we think about programming, entertainment, what our kids watch or don't watch, and what they want to watch.  If you have read my blog at all, you will see that I love family friendly movies and family night movies. We own over 300 DVD's and we watch a LOT of movies together, so I really enjoy the ones that I don't have to screech at when they use language that is inappropriate for all ages. In fact, a lot of movies are ruined by the language, so I like it when they come out on TV and have to be censored!

I am excited about being able to share ideas with this company and I hope you will join in with them and do the same.  It is amazing to me at how many companies are FINALLY realizing that a mom's opinion is worth so much!

Family movie night coming back January 8th on Fox

Walmart and P&G present Family Movie Night. Don't miss Change of Plans starring Brooke White, Joe Flanigan and Phylicia Rashad, Saturday, January 8th on FOX at 8/7c

About the movie:
Sally Danville is a free-spirited musician on her way to the top. Her husband Jason is fighter pilot who doesn’t want to be tied down. Together, they live life on the go, free of domestic responsibilities. But when they get a phone call from Child & Family Services, they quickly learn that things don’t always go according to plan. Named legal guardians of four kids – three of them from third-world countries, they now must learn to parent this instant family. The story is both humorous and heartwarming, revealing how fulfilling life can be when you look beyond your own plans and invest in the lives of others.

My thoughts:
I was given the opportunity to see this movie before it comes out on television and I absolutely loved it!! How would you feel if all of a sudden your life was completely turned upside down because of an accident? What if you were asked to raise 4 kids that are basically strangers to you? What if you had to put your dreams and plans on hold because there was suddenly someone else that depended on you?
That is the situation that Sally and Jason find themselves in. They have careers nad they are both very much free spirited, so when Sally finds out that her best friend has been killed in an accident, their world is completely turned upside down! They go from a free spirit to a family.
This is a movie about love, sacrifice and courage. I recommend that every family make plans to watch this on Fox on January 8, 2011. You will be touched and even inspired by this family and the choices they make. Watch the preview and then make family movie night plans with your family!

Keep Christ in CHRISTmas with H&S candies~review & giveaway

Well Christmas is upon us once again and I have to say that I am excited! I love this time of year; it seems that people are in a better mood and they seem to be nicer to each other. But I like to reflect on this time of year and remember the true meaning of the season...it is not about a man that wears a red suit and passes out toys on Christmas Eve, but it is about a baby that was born over 2000 years ago. The birth of Jesus reflected a lot about how His life would turn out...He was rejected in the beginning when there was no room for Him in the inn. So He was born in a stable and His crib was a feeding trough. But what is sad is how He is treated even today. This king left His throne in Heaven and came down to earth to live as a human so that He could understand all that we go through, then He was beaten and killed...but the greatest part is He is alive today!! Jesus' birthday should be a special time for you to reflect on how great He has been in your life and I pray that this year you will do just that with your family.


I found a poem that I wanted to share with you:

Don't Forget Jesus
Christmas is a special time
To reflect on Jesus Christ
The wonder of His lowly birth
Brings meaning to our lives

There really is no other reason
We celebrate this day
The birth of God’s precious son
And the life He willingly gave

But so much seems to distract us
In the busy-ness of our lives
We lose our focus in all the happenings
Not knowing, we leave out Christ

We lose sight of the true meaning
As we endlessly rush about
Trying to find that perfect gift
Seems to cloud our Saviour out

We need to stop and reflect awhile
Remembering our precious Lord
His birth, His life and sacrifice
And all that He stands for

For though the world may celebrate
It seems though for other reasons
Let’s keep in mind that Jesus Christ
Is the true meaning of the season.

The people at H&S (Heart & Soul) candies also want you to keep Christ in CHRISTmas this year as well. From The Heart to The Soul...

Christmas from Branson, Missouri

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Hilton Branson. All opinions are 100% mine.

So, if I could get my family in on a new tradition at Christmas, we would start making a family trip to Bransonm, Missouri.  There are so many exciting things going on this time of year and it is beauiful. If you are in the area, or you want a place to go and start a new tradition, check out the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel and also the  Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing.  The Hilton BCC Hotel and the Hilton Prmenade are both  just minutes from 49 live theatres, Branson golf courses, Table Rock Lake, Silver Dollar City, outlet malls, Titanic Museums and many more Branson Attractions.

He will also be available in the lobby of the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel for family portraits each day beginning December 12th though December 24th from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm.

NMEDA ~ National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Do you, or someone you know, have a need for safe driving equipment for disabled people? If so, you need to check out this company NMEDA.

NMEDA is a non-profit trade association; they educate consumers on buying products from a NMEDA qualified dealer.

NMEDA DOES NOT SELL ANYTHING: NMEDA is the only association that promotes safe driving and equipment for disabled people. They are non-profit and their members are required to adhere to the safety standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. NMEDA dealers (members) are the ones who sell handicap vans and vehicle modifications for disabled people.

 No two people with a disability are exactly the same. Beware of adapted wheelchair vehicles sold over the Internet or through catalogs. After a personalized “in-person” evaluation, you can be sure you are getting the right driving solution customized to your specific lifestyle and needs. If you need additional training or product refinements, your NMEDA dealer is there to help you.

* The Quality Assurance Program (QAP) is the only nationally recognized accreditation program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry. It is based on the principle that in order to satisfy customers consistently, companies must have a systematic and documented approach to quality.

I work in an assisted living facility where we take care of the elderly and disabled.  I see first hand the need for personalized equipment. We have several of our residents that have to travel in a non-emergency ambulance because they cannot get into our facility van. Those residents can only go to doctor's appointments or to the hospital. For anyone living at home, they do not have to be home bound any longer.

**Please be sure to go to NMEDA and on the homepage, hit the dealers locator and type in your ZIP code and see if there is a qualified dealer near you.

I have 1 dealer near my  I have one dealer near my home and work, and three others within a 100 mile radius. So I encourage you to check out your local dealer as well.  See how much they can do for you to get you moving!

Parent's Choice Infant Formula

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of PBM Products. All opinions are 100% mine.

Are you having trouble finding Similac® Advance® Infant Formula at your local retailer?

Consider trying a store brand infant formula alternative sold at retailers including Walmart, Sam’s Club, Target, Kroger, Walgreens, CVS, and Babies “R” Us.

For example, you can compare the nutrition of Parent’s Choice Advantage™ Infant Formula to Similac Advance and feel comfortable knowing that these formulas are nutritionally equivalent and offer the same benefits:

- Prebiotics to help support baby’s immune system

- Milk-based nutrition containing all nutrients, vitamins and minerals for growth and development
DHA & ARA, which may support brain and eye development

- Available in 23.2 oz and 12.4 oz sizes 

Thanks to the Infant Formula Act of 1980, all baby formula sold in this country must meet minimum nutrient requirements and FDA regulations.  That means that you can save money by getting the store brand and feel safe that your baby is getting all the nutrition that he/she needs. You don't have to spend a lot to get a lot when it comes to baby formula. 

Look for yourself about the  store brand formula. Also, I encourage to read more about the Similac recall and see for yourself why you should switch to generic formula.

The Similac recall should also serve as a reminder for parents that they need to be vigilant about baby product safety in general. The best way to do that is to sign up for emails from the government’s http://recalls.gov  website.

Pier 1 - Christmas must haves

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pier 1 Imports. All opinions are 100% mine.

Have you seen the cute little commercials from Pier 1 this year? I smile every time I see a new one. They are so cute! They are advertising that  Pier 1 has Entertaining, Gifts, and Decor that "speaks to you".  If you have not seen them, then you need to look out for them the next time you are watching t.v.  So I decided I would look at Pier 1 and find some holiday gifts that I would love to have for myself and family. I would love this vanity mirror.  http://www.pier1.com/Catalog/Gifts/tabid/501/List/0/CategoryID/119/level/a/ProductID/130/ProductName/Hayworth-Mirror-Vanity-uu/Default.aspx

Pier 1 has all your entertaining needs as well. Like the Santa Paper Napkins and this really cute Mrs Claus Apron. If I was entertaining this Christmas season, one thing on my must have list would be the 3 condiment dish set with stand.

So what about you? Has anything "talked to you" this Christmas season? If not, then you need to head on over to Pier 1 and let their selection of gifts speak to you!.

Also, make sure you "like" Pier 1 on facebook http://www.facebook.com/pier1. For every new fan they get, they will donate $1.00 to Toys for Tots. For the month of December, you also can support Toys for Tots by dropping off an unwrapped toy and/or making a cash donation at the register.

Tom's of Maine

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Toms of Maine. All opinions are 100% mine.

Are you concerned about the ingredients that go into the products you buy? So are the people at Tom's of Maine and that's why on their web site they share every ingredient, its purpose, and its source. Check it out here: http://www.tomsofmaine.com/research/ingredients From Tom and Kate's family to yours In 1968, Tom and Kate Chappell left Philadelphia, where Tom worked for an insurance company, and moved to rural Kennebunk, Maine. As part of their goal to simplify their lives, they sought out natural, unprocessed foods and, unadulterated products. Unable to find natural personal care options for themselves and their children, in 1970 Tom and Kate decided to create and sell their own. They began with a $5,000 loan from a friend and the philosophy that their products would not harm the environment. From this small start, Tom's of Maine grew and developed into a different kind of company, one based on the belief that people and nature deserve respect. Over the years our product line moved from non-phosphate laundry detergent to natural personal care products such as the first natural toothpaste (1975) and deodorant (1976). We've grown in size and in 2006, we became part of the Colgate-Palmolive Company. But our simple, direct approach hasn't changed one bit: we listen to what our customers want (and don't want) in their products, we learn how it can be done, and we respond with effective natural(and sustainable) solutions. They have been around for over 40 years. They offer products such as: toothpaste, deodorant, mouth wash, dental floss, and soap. And all of them are from naturally sourced, wholesome ingredients. And they taste great! I received a free sample of the toothpaste in the mail and it was great...fresh breath and leaves your teeth and mouth feeling good. Where can you get Tom's of Maine for yourself?? You don't have to be in Maine! You can get the products at your local Rite Aid, Walgreen's and Target stores. Just to be sure that the product you are looking for is at your favorite drug store just go to the store locator part of their page http://www.tomsofmaine.com/where-to-buy. Check out Tom's of Maine online Tom's Of Maine. If you have a facebook account, make sure to "like" their facebook page http://www.facebook.com/TomsofMaine?v=app_4949752878 and follow them on twitter https://twitter.com/TomsofMaine

I am sure you will love their products as much as I do!!

Don't let the holidays get you depressed

For some people, the holidays can be very depressing. That has been the case for some in my family for a few years because I had a nephew that passed away on December 14, 2007. He was only 7 months old. It has been a sad reminder every year since then. But, for us, we have realized that we are blessed and he is with Jesus. That is not the case for many other families. Some people get so depressed and upset over the holidays and they turn to suicide. Maybe they are in a situation like ours, or they may have lost a job and can't afford gifts. Whatever the reason, I want to reach out to anyone that may have suicide thoughts this holiday season.

There is help for anyone that has suicidal thoughts, and I pray that if anyone reading this knows of someone that may be suffering, that you will please direct them to this post and the sources I have to share. Here is a link to a site "God Test". http://godtest.com/surveya/index.html Go here and take the test to see what your results are. They also offer a new believer's Bible study http://www.godtest.com/surveya/biblestudy.htm and other resources such as books about suicide and coping with death http://www.godtest.com/surveya/books.htm.

Here is a download that I also wanted to share with you. At the bottom you will see a phone number for the suicide hotline:

Dear Friend,
I'm so sorry you’re going through a hard time. Good news, though—there
really is hope. Time will change your current situation. You’ll soon find that
these dark feelings are temporary. Peace and joy are available to you.
I'm not promising that you’ll never have losses, but the pain will pass as you
keep praying and seeking God. Keep your head high in this storm until the
sun shines again. Soon this dark period of your life will be behind you.
There is hope. Jeremiah 29:11-13 says,
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD,
“plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give
you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come
and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me
and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Recommendations:
1. Go to other believers for encouragement.
Find a church home. Join a small Bible study in a home or church
setting. Surround yourself with others your age who seek God and
study His Word.
2. Listen to inspirational music.
You can find Christian music in your favorite style. Try your local
Christian radio station or one online.
3. Take time to read the Bible.
If you don't have a Bible, there are versions available on the Web
that you can download. Or ask your church for assistance.
4. Read the book, Purpose Driven Life.
This is a great Bible study and will give you a sense of direction
and purpose for your life so you feel plugged in.
5. Get help.
Call 9-1-1 or go to an emergency room if you fear you are no
longer able to prevent taking your life. Allow someone outside
your situation to intervene. Also, consider going for counseling.
Seek out a pastor or other professional who will listen, care, and
help you with your struggles.
You are in our prayers during this difficult season in your life.

Suicide Helpline: 1-800-SUICIDE
Sometimes good things happen suddenly. It was New Year's Eve 2003 when I
considered all the people contemplating ending their life that very night. As a
person who has also experienced a dark night of the soul, I understood how a
crisis, circumstance or depression could create a state of hopelessness. It’s only
by the grace of God that I survived my dark night to live a life of joy.
Sometimes all it takes to survive a dark time is a little hope and encouragement
as well as a fresh perspective of God's love. That's when I decided to hook up
my interactive website, GodTest.com, with the suicidal lanes of the Internet.
That night 20 people came to Christ. By
Monday morning 100 people had escaped
suicide and found faith. Two weeks later, we
were at 12,000 hits and 2000 souls coming to
faith.
I soon added other features to the site. With
each improvement, we experienced greater
statistics. More than that, we received
personal reports to show the site served a
purpose. A depressed pastor wrote, "Thank
you. This was the worst ministry day of my life.
Your site helped me feel better."
A dad of a disabled child wrote, "You saved
two lives tonight. You see, I was going to kill
both myself and my child, but your story has
encouraged me. The two of us will live."
Since then, we have seen thousands of suicides prevented and over half a
million people have come to faith. Millions have found the encouragement they
need. We’ve recently redesigned the site and hope this will attract even more
people to the site and encourage them to draw close to God.
As the president of a tiny nonprofit, Right to the Heart, we are delighted to help
and encourage so many. Please visit the site, link to it from your online
presence, and spread the word.
