Coming soon – the 2013 Holderness XMas Video

as you see here, we started a tradition in 2012. Instead of xmas cards we write and shoot a video… this one was pretty popular so we did it again! I will post it later today.

    Just wanted your family to know that the video was great to watch. I lost a couple of family members in the last few years and the winter holidays don’t seem to be the same anymore. However, loved your video! Additionally, it’s nice seeing a white family that knows how to get down. Thanks.

    You have a lovely family guys. My girlfriend and I are getting engaged in a few months (God willing) and she has 8 brothers and sister the youngest three being 2, 4 and 6 (don’t worry she is 24). We have a lot of fun together and do crazy stuff like this and can’t wait to have silly time with our own kids just like Penn C and Lola. It’s also nice to see two thriving parents who are so busy with working (and acting, also something we share in common) and still committed to each other and your family. Bravo and Christmas blessings!

    Okay. I’m watching your videos when really I should be developing a website for some climate change projects in Mexico or at the very least online Christmas shopping while my kids are out of the house. Well done Holderness family! I love this 2012 video — so sweet and down to earth. (Love the jammie one too). I think your production company has great things in store. Best of luck for 2014

  • Debbie

    You have a beautiful family!!

  • Angela :)

    My Friend tagged me on FB with your 2013 Christmas video. She said I need to do this. If only hubby and I could sing we TOTALLY would be doing this. My 6 year old has been bugging me the past two day to make a jammie video. LOL I So Love how you are proud of the small thing your kids havent accomplished. It aggravates me when people look at flaws as flaws. I am blessed to be able to homeschool my kids which is great as 2 of my kids have dyslexia (like I). My youngest is only 5 months so we dont know if he’s in “the club” yet or not. 🙂 My 6 year old is very behind in speech and has trouble still with his ABC’s. But he is so intelligent is so many other areas. My 9 year old struggles at time with Math and Reading but she is a goo roo when it comes to history. Its amazing. Love your videos and jealous. 🙂 You have an amazing family and that is such a Awesome Blessing. Continue Enjoy your Family time and Merry Christmas!

  • Stephanie

    Love this video! I showed it to a classroom of 2nd graders in Bordeaux, France today 🙂 I was telling them about American Christmas traditions and thought your video was a good way to get everyone in the mood 🙂

  • Stephanie

    I meant the Christmas Jammies video, but this one is adorable as well.

  • Trish (from Edmonton Alberta, Canada)

    I want Christmas Jammies!…. I love the video (:
    You have a lovely family!

  • Christy

    This totally made my day. You all are great…I am blown away. Adorable kids AND talented parents! Merry Christmas!

  • http://yahoo.com stephanie

    I must say, your family reminds me of a true American family, like the ones we only see in screan play. The love is so easily shown through your family video cards, and your children are adorable . continue to go viral, its nice to see how a family should be like, and its nice to see more heartfelt videos with humour, rather than the stuff polluting the young minds on the internet now days. and it’s awsome that you’ve always wanted your own internet ,.mabey one.day you will..

About Us
The Holderness family has been dancing in pajamas and singing during snow days for years — but last year they hit the record button on the camera and published their goofy video on YouTube. Penn, Kim, Lola, and Penn Charles continue to make hilarious videos around tent-pole events and circumstances most families face.
