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.

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 […]
