7 Family Activities for Valentine’s Day

Photo by Joshua Hoehne

When it comes to unofficial holidays, Valentine’s Day is regarded as one of the most anticipated days for lovers, married couples, and even families. It is a day of love, particularly of the romantic kind.

While the holiday is massively commercialized, you can’t help but think that it’s only for people with partners, right? Well, it depends on anyone, but all forms of love, like the one between parent and children, can also be celebrated.

In fact, more and more families are going toward the tradition

Baby Dickey 3 and 4?!

Well, it has been awhile! What have we been doing over at the Dickey home?! We’ve kept busy, that’s for sure. My husband and I spent 9 days traveling around Alaska, which was INCREDIBLE. We went for our 30th birthdays and our 7th wedding anniversary (all occur within about a month). That’ll have to be for another post, but it was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime type of trip.

We had a great summer with the kids. They each took a week-long dance camp (Ryan’s was more hip hop style and Rebecca’s was more like

Christmas Traditions: what do you do with your family?

I didn’t realize how many Christmas traditions we truly have until I started going through my old photos! We’ve continued on traditions from my own family, my husband’s family, our Norwegian heritage, and even traditions with our friends (Ugly Sweater Party!). Now that we have two little ones (almost 5 and 2.5 years), we’re starting our own, too. I partnered with Walmart’s #ChosenByKids event to share these with you…

Decorating the Christmas Tree

We start the holiday season by putting up the tree! We always decorate as a family, putting on our ornaments

Sensational Memories of Summer

Five hours in the car with my brother… were we fighting or playing games? I can’t even remember that part of it. We probably sat mostly in silence, headphones on our ears, mine blasting some Aerosmith.

We finally get out and stretch. The air is clean and crisp with the deep scent of pine. My dad opens up the cabin and my brother and I run from room to room, throwing our stuff–just like home! A trip to the local grocery store to stock the kitchen and to the bait shop

Family memories captured with YesVideo

Life is all about memories, right? We take photos and videos, we write journals and make scrapbooks, and we sit and reminisce and tell stories. I’ve talked a lot about YesVideo here on my blog because I love their memory-making services. They take photographs and video (tapes, files, etc.) and convert them to digital files and DVD, allowing you to watch and share anywhere!

My family has used their services many times with old VHS tapes. We don’t even own a VHS player anymore

Our Holiday MOMents

If you follow me on Facebook, you know I’ve been living in a house of SICK for over a week. We basically missed Christmas and postponed Ryan’s 4th birthday party because of it…. as if this time of year isn’t stressful enough! I feel out of the loop and we’re just starting to climb out of this mess. There seems to be so much pressure during the holidays, but it’s also a time that CAN be filled with amazing memories… so let’s stop and enjoy

I had a DNA test for genetic health and ancestry

You may have seen me posting on Facebook about this over the past week or 2, but I recently participated in a DNA test for genetic testing on a review campaign with 23andMe. I was intrigued by the idea of simply spitting in a cup, sending it off to a lab, and having tons of answers about my health and ancestry… but at the same time I was terrified. I went back and forth on if I should do it… curiosity got
