How To Be An LGBTQ+ Ally Past Pride Month

Hi there! Penn here. This is a late addition to Pride Month.  I apologize that it took cleaning out my Dad’s old condo to make this happen. We were moving him into a skilled nursing facility and clearing out a massive filing cabinet with all of the sermons he ever wrote over a 40-year career. […]

What I’m Reading | Summer 2020

When I was a little girl, I would lock myself in my room and write “books”. These books were loose pieces of paper stapled together with some cover art. They were based in boredom and make-believe. There was one about a man who smoked cigars on the moon (that’s why we have clouds, duh) and […]

Our Top 5 Mom Shorts

It’s that season again. Time for Mom Shorts! I love that when Penn and I put out a parody song about this a few years ago and he tried to tell me mom shorts “weren’t a thing.” Anyone that has had a child knows that all your pre-baby shorts have done 100% out the window. […]

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.
