Micah and Whitney Slade’s family first created a video Christmas card in 2011 and received more than 92,000 views on YouTube. This fun family tradition has continued for six years and videos have included food fights and an underwater music video. But the Slade family has taken it one step further and they have […]
I don’t want to imagine what filming a Christmas video in one take would look like but guaranteed, it wouldn’t be anything like this. The Holderness Family of “Xmas Jammies” acclaim is back again with a super fun recap of 2016: The good, the bad and the ugly!
A couple of weeks ago, I had one doozy of a meltdown. I usually thrive on change and being pushed beyond my comfort zone but the feelings of being overwhelmed have been building for months. Factor in a move, a new job while juggling the old one, missing friends, financial stress, finishing two rooms in our […]
While driving home from a party one night, my husband asked me if I was happy with our relationship (we’re newlyweds so we still ask about this from time to time). I said yes and asked him the same question. He replied, “Yes, I’m just not used to all the belching, farting and drama.” I […]
Hello Formerly-Well-Rested-Humans-Turned-Parental-Zombies, I’m one of you. In fact, at this very moment I’m writing to you from the depths of sleep-deprived parenting pandemonium… otherwise known as “sleep training.” For the purposes of this post, I am defining “sleep training” as the super-fun process of teaching my kiddos how to fall asleep on their own AND […]

When given the bad news, there are tantrums, there is violence, and there are a few forgiving sweetie pies that are completely endearing. […]
My family was recently chuckling about an overnight stay at The Curtis-a DoubleTree by Hilton in downtown Denver a few years ago where each of their 16 floors is dedicated to a different theme. Their 13th floor is “horror” and for Halloween they converted in into a veritable haunted house with a haunted elevator ride, hallways […]
The Holderness family couldn’t resist making a parody of their favorite SNL skit of all time, complete with Spartons cheerleader costumes. Apologies to Ferrell and O’Teri, the original masters, but this is a pretty great attempt. See the original Spartans cheerleader sketches here.
“Don’t pity the matriarch of this chaotic household, even though her kids are jumping off the roof, shooting arrows through the living room and tossing silverware down the disposal. Just listen to her when she gives you some advice on simplifying your life. Because if anyone should know a good time-saving app when she sees […]
I miss the days when I had the luxury of having a nervous breakdown. B.C. (Before Child), I could spend an entire weekend in bed sleeping, wallowing in misery and whining to my girlfriends on the phone. Usually these breakdowns happened after some schmuck I thought was the love of my life dumped me. […]
