It’s Beginning to Look Twice as Much Like Christmas…

It’s Beginning to Look Twice as Much Like Christmas…

  One of the joys and challenges of being in a new home at the holidays is that you have a whole new space to decorate. It’s one of my favorite times of the year, so even as we were house hunting, I had an eye on how each home would look at Christmas. I… [more]

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical [Review]

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical [Review]

Last night, my dad and I slogged through rain and flooded streets to get my kids to see Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical in Boston.

This Is the Christmas that Never Ends…

I have a somewhat crazy family. I’ve got my mom’s side (Think Large, Irish, Catholic, and then Not-so-large, Russian). I’ve got my biological father’s side (ok, not really, but there are a couple of people I keep in touch with). I’ve got my stepfather-who-adopted-me-so-is-actually-my-father’s side.
