I knew something was up around the Leman household…but I didn't know what was up. Later I find out that Mrs. Uppington was being very sneaky and planning a surprise party! My first clue was when I woke up and my daughter Hannah and her husband Josh were on the patio in the morning drinking coffee — I was shocked! And I was hoping the other kids weren't far behind…

And they weren't! Kevin and Lauren flew in from California the next day along with other friends and family! The party was so great it made me want to be 70 all over again (and I thought that was impossible!) The best part was listening to all my kids and grandchildren talk about our relationship and what counted most in life to them.

To top it off my sweet wife bought me a 1950 Deluxe Ford – Little did she know that was my FIRST car. I paid 200 dollars for it. I think she paid a little more… She completely surprised me.

It was one of the those benchmarks in life that you don't forget! Everyday since I keep thinking about how wonderful that evening was. How much love was in the that room.

It is a privilege to be a Dad and a husband, those are two things I certainly cut out to be!

Here are a few photos from our evening that my daughter Hannah took! Keep scrolling to get to the GIVEAWAY!

What Birth Order Reveals About Our Presidential Candidates

Had a great time at Fox and Friends today in the Big Apple. Here are my thoughts on what birth order reveals about our presidents.

It’s Your Kid, Not A Gerbil

As you chauffeur your children from one activity to another, do you sometimes feel like a gerbil on a wheel, unable to get off? It's Your Kid, Not a Gerbil, offers insight and solutions for creating a less stressed home life. Parents of children ages 2 – 18 will be helped to give up the impossible quest to make their children “succeed” and instead, create a scenario where their kids are more likely to adopt the values taught at home. Special features include sidebars in each chapter with tips and a “Good Question!” section with thought provoking queries. You can purchase It's Your Kid, Not A Gerbil in the Shop page!

Have A New Kid By Friday DVD
