JINGLE ALL THE WAY 2: On-Set Part II, and a Very Jingle Party! #JingleInsiders

Out of all the adventures that I've had this year (and there have been many), one of my favorites was the trip I took to the Vancouver set of JINGLE ALL THE WAY 2 back in March. When word came down that Twentieth Century Fox and WWE Studios were doing a follow-up to The Greatest Holiday Film of All-Time (the 1996 classic JINGLE ALL THE WAY), I was in. Little did I know that I'd have a chance to actually spend some time on-set with Larry the Cable Guy, WWE Superstar Santino Marella and Director Alex Zamm. With the film now available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD ahead of it's World Television Premiere on the USA Network this Sunday as part of WWE Week, I'm sharing a few more stories from the set (read Part I of my set coverage here) along with some photos of some Jingle-themed activities we did at a family Christmas party last weekend. Ready to Jingle?

Rock Father Local: Cool Family Events & More in the Chicago Loop #LoopHolidays

When it's Christmas here in Illinois, some time spent in the Chicago Loop is an absolute must. I've written in the past about our family tradition of visiting Santa at Macy's on State Street (in fact, this year's visit is tomorrow), and then there's the always-festive Christkindlmarket in Daley Plaza, which we've already visited once this season. No matter what you're into, there's something for the whole family, and the Chicago Loop Alliance has put together a definitive guide to all the Holiday Deals & Events this season. Better yet, they've even curated some daily itineraries of events, along with the full rundown on all that's family-friendly, and in some cases - free.

Holiday Helper: The Electrolux Ergorapido Limited Edition Realtree Xtra Camo, Cordless 2-in-1 Stick and Handheld Vacuum #EurekaPower

 This #EurekaPower Holiday Adventure has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. THE ROCK FATHER is well-versed in mess-making and evidence removal.

Electrolux Realtree Xtra Camo Vac

'Tis the Season to be Messy...

When the tree goes up here at Rock Father HQ each November, I take it as a glowing signal that the season of finding tree needles has begun. That season lasts the next eleven months, of course, and said needles seemingly appear out of nowhere, sometimes immediately after clean-up has taken place, and in odd locations at random intervals. The mix of the artificial (we have two trees up and some garland on the rails) and the natural (wreath on the front door, evergreen around the porch) can be a tricky task to handle, and it's all thrown into a time when additional messes from the culinary and crafting adventures are also on the rise. Thankfully, this year I've been able to add a new tool to my mess-eliminating arsenal with my new Electrolux Ergorapido Limited Edition Realtree Xtra Camo, Cordless 2-in-1 Stick and Handheld Vacuum. Yes, it's a Camo-covered vacuum, so it falls into that "Camo fetish" that I've mentioned in at least nine different articles on this very site, but I digress.
