This is what happens when we are stuck in July 4th traffic

Momentous occasion! It’s my first blog entry while driving a car. This voice dictation thing is amazing I hope it doesn’t get any of the warts wrong. (Kim takes the phone out of his hand here — even though we are in standstill traffic) Anyway, we were driving from Washington DC to North Carolina stuck […]

The Perfect Father’s Day?

Coming up on the celebration of my 8th one of these, I ask this question – what is the perfect Father’s Day?  We all have our different answers, and our answers have probably changed over time.  For me, five years ago, all I wanted was golf and sleep.  But as the kids get older, sleep […]

10 Things that Make your Wife the Perfect Mom

In my opinion the perfect mom… is NOT perfect. 1. She doesn’t get all dolled up to go outside the house (because honestly, who wears mascara at the gym?) 2. She leaves the house trashed every once in a while (because she isn’t the one who made the mess in the first place.) 3. She makes […]

Can a FROZEN song get my kid to eat veggies?

We try.  Really hard.  And we are failing. Hard. We’ve read books, watched documentaries, asked all of our friends, even befriended someone called the Food Babe, in our quest to eat healthy.

OSCAR NIGHT WITH THE HOLDERNESS FAMILY

I remember the last time Ellen hosted the Oscars. It was seven years ago, and we had just had our first child… which means that during Oscar season, Kim was in her third trimester and there was NO better place to take her than a dark, climate controlled room. So we saw every single best […]

EASY ON THE AUTOTUNE

Thanks to all of you who watched, and commented on, our snow day video. One thing we heard a lot… “EASY ON THE AUTOTUNE!!” I totally agree. For some reason when I put it together in Garage Band, it didn’t sound nearly so robotic… didn’t even notice it in edit (probably because I was focusing […]
