#JammieTime: Merry Christmas from the Holderness Family!

For the last 11 months, every song we heard on the radio — we tried to morph into some weird family holiday parody. Nothing worked. Then, while on a Thanksgiving morning run, Penn looked at me and said, “I think I’ve got it.” Our year was fast, crazy, and overwhelmingly happy. This song and video […]

The Skinny on The Chew (and a recipe)

Earlier this week we were part of a “Thanksgiving Family Face-Off” on ABC’s The Chew. I told our kids, “this is a pretend competition.” It’s not like a race you run and have a definitive winner, or a spelling bee when there is a clear RIGHT or WRONG.  A cooking competition is entirely subjective based […]

More couch time = less holiday stress

This blog post and video are made possible because of a partnership with HSN. They rock! Call me crazy, but at this point in November I’m actually craving the craziness of the holidays. We are hosting Thanksgiving dinner for nineteen people at our house and I. CANNOT. WAIT. And let’s face it — I haven’t […]

This dad FINALLY gets to celebrate Halloween (and he’s doing it in a MOOSE costume)

Post from Penn: I can’t tell you how psyched I am about Halloween this year.  Not because of the near perfect weather, the chance to check in with neighbors, the fun block parties, or the increasingly skimpy adult female  costumes (whoever is responsible for this trend deserves a medal, in my opinion – Kim begs […]

Dear Chasing Fireflies: Our catalog obsession

(This blog post and video are made possible by a partnership with Chasing Fireflies. If you haven’t seen their catalog, then.. well.. read on..) As an adult — you probably have a favorite store or designer. Penn can lose himself in an Apple store for days. Me? Drop me off in front of a Williams-Sonoma […]
