We love Christmas movies in this house. One of my favorites is Jingle All The Way. Well, guess what? It's back! This time we have the ever funny Larry the Cable Guy.

Git-R-Done This Holiday Season as Jingle All The Way 2 Arrives on
Blu-rayCombo, DVD and Digital HD™ December 2

LOS ANGELES, CA (October 30, 2014) Fill your stocking with a new holiday classic that will have the whole family laughing when Jingle All The Way 2 arrives on Blu-ray Combo, DVD and Digital HD December 2 from WWE Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Comedy superstar Larry the Cable Guy and WWE Superstar Santino Marella bring laughs and holiday spirit to this second installment of the successful film franchise.
Two desperate dads compete in a no-holds-barred battle to be the best father and make this the best Christmas ever! Fun-loving, laid-back dad Larry (Larry the Cable Guy; Cars, Tooth Fairy 2) is having a bear of a time finding the perfect Christmas gift for his eight-year-old daughter, Noel. The season’s hottest toy, The Harrison Bear, is all sold out, and Noel’s new stepfather wants to keep it that way — so he can be the one to make her holiday wish come true. When Larry learns all Noel wants for Christmas is the bear, he’ll stop at nothing to make his little girl happy and get her the toy of her dreams…Co-starring WWE Superstar Santino Marella, Jingle All The Way 2 is heartwarming and hilarious fun for the whole family!

Jingle All The Way 2 is directed by Alex Zamm (Dr. Dolittle: Million Dollar Mutts, The Tooth Fairy 2) and produced by Michael Luisi (Scooby-Doo! WrestleMania Mystery, Christmas Bounty, The Flintstones & WWE: Stone Age Smackdown) and Vicki Sotheran (The Sandlot 2, The Sandlot: Heading Home).

The holiday cheer continues in the Blu-ray Combo and DVD bonus features including deleted scenes, making-of featurettes, a mock Public Service Announcement from Larry and Santino advising how you can stay safe while shopping this holiday plus a special Harrison the Bear TV commercial and an exclusive interview with the hottest toy of the season.

Our How to Train Your Dragon 2 Party

We had a great time recently with our How to Train Your Dragon 2 party! Abby and a few friends got to watch the movie and eat some yummy snacks thanks to Fox Home Entertainment Insiders! 

Aren't these plates, cups, and napkins adorable! The kids loved them.

They loved the snacks even more! Famous Amos cookies, Welch's Fruit Snacks, Goldfish, Minute Maid juice, and Kirkland Microwave popcorn!

I could barely get these kids to sit still ALL night but that's a sign of a fun evening, right?


They had a fun time watching How to Train Your Dragon 2. The above photo is of them being dragons. The loudness was a bit out of control but man did they enjoy themselves!

Aren't these bags cute too? Oh yeah, we are spoiled just a tiny bit, thanks to Fox! :)

You Are Never Just a Mom

Being a stay at home mom isn't easy. Hey, I'm being honest. It is a complete blessing, for sure, but easy? Never. We always dreamed that I'd be able to stay home with our kiddos, assuming we would actually have some. You all know that story right? I'm beyond thankful that we have been able to do so and I know that's not always the case. 

Today I want to talk about something. Something I find really important. It was just recently that I found words for it. It's come up multiple times for me and I thought I should share. We've all been there. We are talking to someone and the conversation turns to work. 

"What do you do?" they ask. "Me? Oh, I'm just a mom." you reply. 

I've said it. I've heard others say it. Heck, it is said enough that it was the focus of one of the MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) MomCon classes. If that doesn't say we are all struggling with our value, I don't know what does. And that is the core I think. Our value. You can argue with me but I still say in 99.9% of cases I'm right. 

Do you know what "just a mom" does? Everything. She is a taxi, a cook, a housekeeper, a shopping assistant, a secretary, a therapist, a teacher, a Girl Friday if you will. She is a party planner, a nurse, and a photographer. You know what I think? Out there in the "real world" you could never get paid enough to do what you do. And, speaking of the "real world"...how much more real can it get as when your child throws up in your hands? Sorry, off topic there for a minute. 

I don't want to hear you (or me) making excuses for your JOB ever again. Don't forget what a blessing you are to your family. Don't forget you are a gift just as much as your kids are a gift to you. What you do matters. As Lisa-Jo Baker said at MomCon "We are mighty because we mother." and it is SO true!

You are not JUST a mom. You are so much more valuable than you realize.
