Move Over Kids, the Adults Are Going to Bounce

The Insane Inflatable 5K looks like one of those things that you can't really fully prepare for, and just have to wing it once you're in it.  Kinda like parenthood!

Do Your Kids Get Messed Up By the Time Change?

We've got to spring forward one hour this weekend, and that has a tendency to mess up family life.

Bring The Kids This Saturday

I have a 6 year-old son and love to take him on "Connell Boy Adventures" as often as we can.  In the last few months, this has meant the water park, potato harvesting, even up to Bogus to do some tubing.

How to Make Opening A Gift Less Awkward

It's almost time to rip open the presents, and sometimes that can be a little awkward. The spotlight is on you, and everyone is waiting to see how you'll react.  What if you don't know what in the heck it is?

Impress Your Family With These Oreo Balls

If you're still looking for candy recipes, this is the easiest thing you'll ever make, and it's awesome!  And addictive I warn you.

I make Oreo Balls every year and my dad and 11-year old niece always fight over the first one, and could polish off the whole tray themselves.

Here's the recipe.

Anyone Else Invited To The Ex’s House For Thanksgiving?

This is my second Thanksgiving as a single lady.  My ex and I ended things in the summer of 2013, and with three kids it's been important to us to get along and maintain a good relationship, and let it evolve into something new.  We're both much happier apart, an although we weren't right for each other as spouses, we genuinely care about each other and have been able to find places for each other in our lives as we move on.  And I'm going over there for Thanksgiving!  Is this a good thing?

Wanna Make Your Guy Cry? Tell Him You’re Pregnant Like This Girl Does.

Thanks to Youtube, we get to see life-changing moments, like when guys first find out their wives are pregnant.

This couple got married in 2012, and had been trying to conceive for awhile.  Notice the due date is June 2015, meaning she kept this secret for at least two months.  Impressive!

Have You Ever Canceled Thanksgiving Dinner to Shop?

I sat my three girls on the couch on Sunday and had them point to things they wanted in a Christmas catalog, and they found something they were dying to have on every single page.  Not my brightest parenting move!  Now I have a list of 40 things on their wish list and still no clear idea of what to get.

I'll pick up a few things here and there ahead of Thanksgiving, but I'm planning to keep Thanksgiving Day all about food and family.  No shopping.  Anyone with me?  I heard people talking yesterday about one family that's not having Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday the 27th so they can hit sales at the stores instead.  OMG.
