For many families watching movies together has become a tradition this time of year.
One movie that families will consider going to this Christmas season is The Adventures of Tintin:
I was able to watch an advanced screening of Tintin, so I wrote a review for CBN.com. If you have kids or were wanting to see this movie then you will want to read my review first. You may view that review here: CBN TINTIN REVIEW

So we are having a GIRL!!! I have already bought a gun (to scare away the boys), sold a kidney (to put a down payment on her wedding-which she will have when she's 93), and started praying (for my sake AND her sake)!
Here are the first pics:

A few Weeks ago I was asked to present a spoken word (a poem or writing of some sort spoken out loud to an audience). For a few days before I had tried to come up with something, but it didn't seem to be quite right. Finally, at the very last moment I got inspired. I wrote it and then spoke it and it seemed to hit a chord with the audience. Dr. Linda Mintle who is an author and friend asked permission to post it for her website. I said yes. You can read that piece on her blog here:

The Road Taken (The Road Most Traveled)
by Jayce O’Neal
3-18-04, 2004 (c)
Is this the best thing to do?
Is there where I should be?
A million choices to sort through
Mountains of decisions blind me
If I choose this, what will it mean?
Options mount, but what, when, and where?
So many variables that can’t be foreseen
Discombobulated, am I here or there?
Playing it safe may not be grand
But taking a risk leaves too much unclear
I’ve sentenced my life to an unliving bland
I foolishly say, maybe next year
Immobilized to move because I do fear
The unknown, the hidden, anything I can’t see
So instead I stay frozen-keeping fear so near
Subscribing my life to mediocrity

Dr Jayce has written an imaginative and super fun book for kids. This is a great book for families to read together! The artwork is great too. Highly recommend.
-Brandy B. Editor & Author
This was a great book to read and fun for my kids and myself. It reads like a cross between Dr. Seuss & Fancy Nancy...it is wonderfully written and excellently illustrated, it is sure to enthral children of all ages. It will be fun to read again and again.
-Steven M. Literary Critic
As soon as we got Crazy Circus World we instantly sat down and read it, then turned around and read it another time. This book is beyond cute! I beyond LOVED it! Love the sweet message in the book, the crazy animals and the little boys imagination. It started my girls imagination running and they played Crazy Circus World the rest of the night before their bedtimes.
Jayce O’Neal is an amazing writer and human being. He is entertaining, amusing, as well as reflective and spiritually profound. I wish everyone could get to know him as their personal friend, and maybe through his writing they can.
-Tracie Peterson, best-selling author of The Heirs of Montana and Brides of Gallatin County series.

Don't forget to be thankful for what we do have. Much of the year it is easy to think of the things we might not have. We spend so much time on what we desire and not nearly as much time as we should on what we already are blessed with. However, Thanksgiving is that time of year that makes us sit down and appreciate the little things. Here is my list of things I am thankful for:
- Amazing Wife
- Loving friends & family
- a healthy church
- a job
- a roof over my head
- a lovely neighborhood
- quality neighbors
- fulfilled dreams
- more dreams to chase
- fall leaves
- brisk breeze
- changing of seasons
- things to look forward to
- farside comics
- Where the Sidewalk Ends
- peanut butter pie
- ice cream
- a bed to rest
- a desk to work
- new ideas
- and so much more....what are some things you're thankful for?
