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 […]
From Penn: This has been such an amazing year for me. After nearly two decades of working in TV news, and not getting home until the kids’ bedtime, I discovered something I honestly haven’t ever been a part of…. The nightly family dinner. I mean, we had dinners together on weekends and vacation, but there […]
Is it just me? When I wake up in the morning, I immediately start this wonky plate-spinning circus act. Remember, before the gymnasts that balance their entire body weight on one finger became vogue in the circus world — it was just fun to watch that guy spin a dozen plates on thin sticks racing […]

Post by Kim, craft by Penn I grew up in an incredibly crafty, do-it-yourself family.

Have a laugh on us!
Lifestyle, exercise and diet tips to keep you healthy (or health-ish).
In most of our content, you see us having fun with, and making fun of, our family and our marriage. There’s plenty to laugh at, there is also plenty to work on. This portion of our website is all about our ongoing quest to be better at being married to each other. The content is a little longer form than the usual videos, but it will still make you laugh - and hopefully it’ll make you think a little!
Parodies and original music to make you smile.
We create videos that are meant to make you laugh. This is our podcast that is meant to make you think (and hopefully still laugh a little!).
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.
