In the olden days before DVDs, Blurays, and DVRs, every holiday season I’d race through the TV Guide to find when the specials were going to be on and scream at my mom to mark the calendar so I wouldn’t forget. I have fond memories of getting in the holiday spirit by sitting around and
Joe and I would like to thank all of you for following our madness again this year. Have a great holiday season and we hope you decide to join in the middle-age mayhem again next year.
When we moved into our house, our first Christmas was an adventure of epic proportions. And I mean that literally. Our living room is an open concept to the dining room with tall vaulted ceilings, a perfect place for a nice big Christmas tree. My wife declares, “Let’s get the biggest tree that will fit

One of our first blogs was a list of things to do when your wife is away. I came across this the other day. Enjoy.
