Keep Your Pets Safe During The Holidays

Anyone Up For Some Heavy Petting Under The Mistletoe?

cat in the christmas tree
When I was a kid, my friend's cat had obviously eaten Christmas tree tinsel (he had a long sparkly strand hanging out of his butt). When I went to pull it out my friend's older brother shouted, "Stop! You'll pull out his intestines!!" Later that winter when my mom made a money cake for my birthday, all I could think of when I was tugging on a ribbon in search of a coin, was yanking out a pile of cake covered cat intestines. Scarred...for life

The Santa Hat Drinking Game

Plus A Kid Friendly Version

Santa Hat Drinking Game

Since Ross Hammond (@RossGraphitas) tweeted the simple instructions to a silly Santa Hat Drinking Game, his post has been retweeted and favourited over 20,000 times and counting. The Huffington Post UK even ran a story on it. 

People like to drink over the holidays. Probably a result of stress, family in close quarters, the bitter cold, shopping. Whoever sang, "It's the most wonderful time of the year!" was obviously drunk.

How Your Kids Can Be Disney Super Heroes This Holiday

The first time my eleven-year-old son stepped into a comic book store, he was all BAM! He was hooked. He collects classic comics, writes his own comics strips, and has seen every super hero movie ever made. In short, KAPOW! He's crazy for all things super hero.

Lisa’s always loved a party. Having played bartender in a former life, this Party Mummy knows her way around a cocktail shaker and can shake her money maker. A sought after party guest, she’d jump at the chance to mix, mingle and be merry. Then she mixed, mingled and got married.

Now with two kids in tow, she knows firsthand how harried parents will often forgo being a social butterfly to stay at home and cocoon. But nothing would stop this Party Mummy...until her youngest was diagnosed with a serious medical condition. Then Lisa made the difficult decision to leave her teaching position after 10 years on the job and experienced a cocooning moment of her own. All of a sudden this Party Mummy was partied out. But she soon discovered that in the good times or bad, mummies still need to play and nothing could keep her from exercising her penchant for dreaming up playful, and practical, party themes.

So get back on the party train and join the conga line. Party Mummy reveals tried and true tips for entertaining and shares a few of her personal “what NOT to do” disasters.
