Sweet treats for Santa, his reindeer, the elf on the shelf and mom

December 18, 2012 |

This week I asked my friend Amy from about the best treats to leave for Santa, the Reindeer and the elves. Amy is my go-to girl for all things food because I am lazy and don’t want to spend hours of my life searching my Pinterest boards. I pin things on Pinterest, but then never ever go back to them. That’s a different topic for a different day, though. Back to Santa… Read More

Do good Christian parents hand their kids iPads and iPods?

December 18, 2012 | | 3 Comments

Guest post by Jennifer Mullen

My parents don’t understand. When we visit them, I am on my phone or laptop, my husband is on his iPad, and the kids are on the iPod.

December 10, 2012 | | 3 Comments

Steve and I were headed to my parents’ lake house in Scott, AR, on Christmas day 2007. The lake may seem like an odd choice for holiday festivities, but it truly is gorgeous.

Holiday Gift Guide: For Kids
