2014 Holiday Gift Guide

Playing it Forward for the Holidays as a Step2 Santa...

Step2 Brand AmbassadorFor the past two years, I've had the privilege of working with The Step2 Company, first as a "Test Driver" in 2013, and later a full-fledged Brand Ambassador in 2014. I've had some great adventures as part of the Step2 team, and it's gone well beyond just playing with toys and talking about cool products. The folks at The Step2 Company are a very kind and giving bunch, many of which are parents themselves, and after visiting their HQ in Streetsboro, Ohio this past summer, I saw first-hand the pride that they take in their toys - most of which are Made in the USA. Going above and beyond, Step2 has been there for me on other projects, like when I needed a great raffle prize for the annual Fall Fest at Addie's school this past October, they stepped-up with a fantastic Studio Art Desk. For our final project together for 2014, all of the Step2 Brand Ambassadors have been "Playing it Forward," each spreading a little cheer to the recipient of their choice, and again, I've chosen Addie's school. After consulting with her Principal (who took feedback from the faculty), it was determined that the Pre-K/Kindergarten play area was in need of a new playhouse. Rock Father Santa was back in-action, delivering a Neat & Tidy Cottage II last week - my little Elf Finley along for the ride as we made our delivery on the way to Addie's Kindergarten Christmas party...

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?

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

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.
