Family Movie Night

Family Movie Night

My kids and I recently previewed the movie Game Time: Tackling the Past which premiers on Saturday, September 3 on NBC at 8pm ET/7pm CT.

My husband found this tiny little girl when he was watering our garden.  She was so sweet the first thing out of my mouth was “Can we keep her?”  Thank goodness I decided “No.”  before my kids saw her because that was the first thing they said too!  On this one there’s no denying…They get…More of this…

Warning: A 7 Year Old Made Up This Joke

My kids have been going through popsicles like they are a dime a dozen.  They are closer to a dime a piece – but that’s not really relevant. In case it’s been awhile since your last Popsicle, the sticks have jokes on them – jokes like: What did A and B like at the beach?…More of this…
