Tis the Season between Seasons.

The time between Thanksgiving always seems like it’s going a million miles per hour. On the home front, if you decorate anything like we do, your tasked with going throughout the


A Very Merry Canine Christmas.


Earlier this year, I was able to escape the clutches of a handful of kids and toddlers and make my way west to the great city of St. Louis, Missouri. It was my first time visiting the area and the family at Purina Beneful welcomed me and a few other bloggers with open arms to


40 Years of Christmas Memories and Traditions.


EDITOR’S NOTE: This is a sponsored post on behalf of Tylenol and the #HowWeFamily campaign. The thoughts, opinions and traditions are all mine. As you know, we’re teaming up with TYLENOL to celebrate all the different ways people family during the holidays, and to share #HowWeFamily. Christmas has always been my favorite holiday and I’m


Santa Loves These Sugar Cookies.

As part of my partnership with Tylenol, we’re teaming up this holiday season to inspire conversation about how different people ‘family’.  My grandma’s sugar cookie recipe is a little piece of personal


Keeping it all Together During the Holidays.


November and December have long been that 1-2 punch to the stones, which at this point, I admittedly should be prepared for. The Thanksgiving dinner menu (and massive grocery adventure by association) was a hit and even my dad (closet turkey critic) can’t stop talking about my brine and we’re halfway through December. ‘Halfway through


A Holiday Letter from Dad or Alive: The Year in Review.


Dear Friends and Family, This past year has been incredibly wonderful and we’re sorry that we haven’t been able to visit, call or write more often (actually ‘sorry not sorry’ at all, parenting three kids under six tends to suck the life and apologies right out of you), but we’re hoping to catch you up

As some of you may have read back in June, I wrote an article entitled MILK: My Family and Giving Back. The campaign that I got behind then and the campaign that


10 Great Gifts for Dad.


I don’t normally put together lists like this, as everyone has their own individual tastes. Every year, my wife and I struggle to figure out what to get our dads for Christmas – how many pocketknives and long-sleeve thermal undershirts can a dude own before he becomes featured on the TV show Hoarders? With that


Why Are The Holidays Important?


Being on the road over the last two weeks, driving up and down the eastern seaboard, traveling to visit both of our families, has given me plenty of time (30 hours over 1,700 miles) to reflect on some of the most sentimental memories of Christmases past. A majority of the things in my life tend


Do Your Kids Drink Booze Over the Holidays?


The holiday season is upon us. For us, I just spent two hours last weekend tearing down all of the crazy Halloween decorations that my wife had put up. She loves the holidays and so do I, but seriously…she REALLY loves the holidays. She’s like some sort of holiday-maniac. Anyway…down to the basement goes the
