Play Osmo: the coolest new interactive iPad game

I’ll admit that both of my kids are iPad obsessed. One of Ryan’s favorite things to do is search the app store for awesome new games to play. He’s almost 5 and we do money counting games, math, sight words, puzzles, and some critical thinking games that are even hard for me. Yes, we play some Angry Birds, too 😉 Rebecca is almost 3 and likes anything Disney or watching Daniel Tiger, meow meow.

Teaching our children to give: what’s your reason?

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Influence Central for The Salvation Army. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

Because every child should feel loved. Because we’re all in it together. Because we’re here to help others. Because I want to teach my kids about giving back. Because I can.

What’s your #RedKettleReason?

Every year around the holiday season, we expect to see those bell ringers and the red kettles from Salvation Army. But do you know why? Do you know what they’re for and where

5 (cool) FROZEN gifts

I don’t know about your kids (or YOU), but this family is FROZEN obsessed. I might be a little embarrassed about how many times I’ve seen it and how I know every word to every song…. “Let It Go?” Obviously a favorite in the shower.

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
