Wordless Wednesday: Tough Love
A friend of mine passed this along and I wanted to share it with y'all. (There IS a picture!)

Most of America's populace thinks it very improper to spank children, so I have tried other methods to control our kids when they have one of "those moments".

One that I found very effective is for me to just take the child for a car ride and talk.
They usually calm down and stop misbehaving after our little car ride together.

I've included the photo below of one of my sessions, with our son, in case you would like to use the technique.

Its very effective!

Thanks for the laugh Jacque! Here's the original link.

They've only just begun
Alrighty, I've been tryin' to post since Saturday, but things just keep happening.

My mother-in-law is trying to come visit us again, 3 birthdays are about to hit next month with Thanksgiving thrown in between, so I'm preparing ahead a time, and I'm trying to keep up with school, but it's kinda distracting for the youngins (and me) when we keep hearing big machines knocking down trees.....which leads me to what I've been wanting to post about.

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that we're Breaking Ground, we'll here's where it's gonna be.

It may not look like it, but this is over a 150 ft. slope. Somehow they are gonna flip this mountain upside down, flatten it and build a cabin on it.

It's hard for me to visualize all this, but my hubby can see it. I can however show you the view we'll have. (I took these last Tuesday before the construction began.)

It's almost like touching heaven!!!

After many weeks months of waiting, this little guy showed up.

And ever since then they've been digging dirt and clearing trees.

Nothing too exciting has happened yet, but tomorrow the bulldozer is coming and that's when the REAL action is supposed to begin. In the mean time here's a few shots of what they've been doing.

I know it's not much to look at, but I did get some better shots today...I forgot to take pics yesterday:( you'd think I would have learned from my last experience to always have my camera. Hopefully I can update ya'll soon and stop by to say hello. I MISS EVERYONE!!!

Before I head off I wanted to share one last picture. It's not great, (I'm NO photographer) but I thought it was purdy:D

An early Christmas gift for you while I unwind
The last couple of weeks have been wonderful/wild all wrapped up in one, so while I take a little blogging break and unwind, I decided to have a contest.

Below is something I decided to tinker with last night (making graphics relaxes me.) I'm not a professional, but I do like to fiddle around....I guess you could call it a little hobby of mine. So if you'd like this cute little bear on your blog for Christmastime leave me a comment.

I may stop by your blogs and say hello, reading blogs relaxes me too:)
