How I Rang in 2014

How I Rang in 2014

As I sit down to write this, I can hear a coughing chorus bellowing down the hallway from my boys’ bedrooms. All three of the children are battling some form of sickness, whether it be flu, colds, ear infection, fever, or all of the above as has been the case. No shrimp cocktail and ball-drop watching for us; instead, we rang the New Year in with rounds of amoxicillin and ibuprofen, early bedtimes, and round the clock temperature taking. It’s not what any parent wishes for the kids (especially for the baby) and it makes matters worse when Mom & Dad catch the gift that keeps on giving.

Review: Peter Cottontail III

Review: Peter Cottontail III

“This production really has the look and feel of the old Rankin and Bass television specials including the clearly defined villains. Peter Cottontail, of course, ends up saving the day,” said Director Jerry Jay Cranford. “Plus it has upbeat musical numbers, dancing and singing. It’s a perfect treat for Easter weekend and certainly family friendly. Even the youngest children will have a good time.”

Magical Meals
