Chicken Soup for the Soul: All in the Family (review & 2 giveaways)

I think most everyone would admit to having a family that is dysfunctional, right? Most everyone has stories about their in-laws, kid-crazy stories, relatives (in general), family vacations, sibling rivalry, and more. Chicken Soup just came out with a book fit for families to share the funny, heart warming and inspirational stories about all kinds of families and their dysfunctions. "Chicken Soup for the Soul: All in the Family," (released October 2009) has the famous Norman Rockwell painting on the back, and a picture displaying today's family ~may resemble your own. Chicken Soup commissioned a painter to create a loving spoof of the famous Rockwell painting on the front cover.
All in the Family shares 101 stories covering topics such as: family horror stories (Michael Kilpatrick, sharing the story of his little brother, Stevie, falling through the "two holer") and loss stories (Carol Huff sharing a story of cleaning her childhood home after her parents passed away). All in the Family is a great book for laughter and tears, and one to be shared and passed around your family. I recommend this book!

Chicken Soup for the Soul: All in the Family (Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Amy Newmark and Susan Heim) $14.95 available in book stores and/or online now.

I must say that weddings are often funny at my house with my lil brother running around at my personal wedding being comedian to my daughter nearly passing out standing as bridesmaid when the vows were being exchanged

That is funny because mine is a wedding story too. My nephew who was our ringbearer, but was probably too young, started to play the piano right in the middle of our wedding. I guess we should not have put him on the end. :)

The day my twins were born and I started my own family. My parents drove 16 hours to make it on time for the birth. I have such a wonderful family.

daily family memory - I think one of my favorite with my kids is going to be homemade pizza and a movie night. I just started letting them watch TV and we all really enjoy Friday evenings. It is something to look forward to.
