Clan Kids

Where kids imaginations run wild…

Stylish Blogger Award

on July 12, 2011

Huge thanks to Tonia Houston ( for passing along the Stylish Blogger Award to the Clan Kids blog. We are super excited and very appreciative of the award. Though I am curious how the kids bribed her to give us this fine award…anyway, upon receiving this award there are a few rules that need to be followed.

Rules of the Award:

#1) Thank the person who bestowed the award.

So here it goes…Dear Tonia, Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! May your blog be blessed with much success. To my readers, I urge you to take sometime and go to and read Tonia’s blog. You will not regret it.

#2) Write 7 things about me.

This one is a little bit harder for me. The reason I write about the Clan Kids is because other than them my life is fairly basic. Because of this wonderful award though, I will try my best to tantalize you with a few personal details…

* I have become a workout fanatic these past few months, due largely in part to Clyde No Bottom. The kids go to the daycare, while Clyde and I lift weights and do the eliptical. I can do about 7 miles in an hour on the eliptical, Clyde can do 10.                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

* I love all things fantasy and supernatural. If it involves vampires, witches, warlocks, werewolves, monsters, and so on, you can bet I am reading, watching, and listening to it all.


* I am a lover of almost all animals, with the exception of snakes and all insects. I have been the proud owner of cats, dogs, hamsters, gerbils, and a parrot in my life so far. As of now our family does not have an animal to call our own. No pets are allowed at our current location. There is sure to be a future post about the day the Clan Kids are finally able to own a pet.

* I love TV competitions, like American Idol, The Voice, Dancing with the Stars, and So You Th’ink You Can Dance. I wish I had the voice (and the courage) to be in a singing competition, and the coordination (and the talent) to be in a dancing competition.   

*I like people with bubbly, happy-go-lucky, encouraging, try until you succeed personalities. I do not give up without a fight. I expect my family and friends to do the same. I get disappointed when I see someone I love and care for not living up to their potential.  

*I am very particular (some would say down right anal) about the way somethings are done. Dishes have to be put in the dishwasher a certain way, the bed must be made a certain way, and other insignificant little details. If you do not do it my way, then do not do it at all. Harsh I know, maybe that is why I don’t get help around the house….hmmmm….

* Last fact about me…I love to write (obviously). I have already written one book. When I am not writing for the  Clan Kids blog or doing the thousands of other things that life dictates that Imust attend to, I work on my writing craft. The book I finished is the first in a series and I am currently working on the second book for the series. 

Oaky, now for the third and final rule if this award. The Stylish Blogger Award must be passed along to 10-15 other ultra awesome blogsites. So without further ado…. (new blog), , , , , , , , ,

Thank you to all who stop by and read the Clan Kids adventures. I thoroughly enjoy reading your comments. If you know anyone who might be interested in reading about the Clan Kids, please invite them to subscribe. I will do my best to keep the posts clean, so you can read them to your children as well.

Do you have a blog you want other to check out? Leave it in the comments!
