I know I haven’t posted in a while in general. More content will be coming I promise. Usually I share the videos from the Mommy Spring’s Rebel House Youtube channel on here. I noticed the last one I shared was our Valentine’s Day video. I posted several other videos since that one, but rather than bombarding you with video posts, I figured I’d just share the link to my channel. I hope you check it out and enjoy what you see. Like I said more content on both the channel and the blog coming soon. Thanks for being patient 🙂

On Valentine’s Day, I shared a video on Youtube in which Colin and I tell our love story.
Happy belated Valentine’s Day! I meant to post this on Valentine’s day, but it’s been a crazy week. I hope you all had a great V-day. So, this is a video we created specially for the holiday. Colin and I tell our love story as briefly as possible. People have told me to write a memoir about it. I’m still considering that 😉
Hope you enjoy!
What’s in a name…
I made this video a couple of days after my birth story video. I was inspired after watching Mama Natural’s video on youtube about why and how they chose the name Paloma for their new baby girl. So in this video I discuss the reasons behind why we chose Drake’s first and middle names. Hope you enjoy the video.
Comment below and let me know how or why you chose your names for your children. Also let me know what you think of these video posts. Should I add a transcript of the video? Is it good as is? Should I write an article related to the topic? Advice and suggestions are much appreciated 🙂
Thanks for stopping by the Rebel House!
Happy New Year!
It’s 2014! I don’t usually do resolutions, but I’ve decided to give them a shot this year. I’ve already started working toward these goals at the end of 2013, but I’m going to call them resolutions anyway. I want to accomplish these goals by 2015.
So, hope you enjoy this little video. Do you have any resolutions? Do you believe in resolutions? Let me know.
I know, I know… Christmas was technically last week. This post is late. I had every intention to slap this up here either on Christmas eve or on boxing day but that just didn’t pan out. So I’m doing this now.
Our Christmas eves aren’t usually eventful. Mot of the time it’s prep for Christmas day. This year was no exception. Colin and i woke up early baked Pumpkin Cheesecake and hung out with the kids.The kids were supposed to bake cookies for Santa with my sister but she ended up doing that on her own. They were playing all day and ended up passing out. Drake didn’t stay asleep as usual, so he had to hide in the room with me while Santa (aka Colin, my sister and her husband) set up all the toys in our living room. The end. That was our Christmas eve.
Christmas day is when we celebrate. What an exhausting day. We woke up early, despite the fact that Drake went to bed at like 5:00AM. We had to enlist our niece Gabbie to help us wake Drake up. Then it was time to open presents. Our favorite part of the day. I love seeing the joy on the kids faces when they see eveything Santa left them and start unwrapping presents.
Santa brought Drake a wooden Chuggington train set, Cars, The Octonauts Octopod, and a few other things. We bought him some transformers toys and games. Basically Drake got lots of toys, a couple of movies and a few books. He had two overflowing stockings with candy and little toys and things. Even with all of that, wouldn’t you know it, Drake spent most of the time playing with his cousin’s kitchen play set.
Pretty much the whole morning was spent watching the kids play. After that we started setting up for dinner. We expected more guests than what actually came, which happens often. My mother and sister prepared a delicious mostly polish dinner of perogies, kielbasa, and so on. We also had ham and some salads. There was lots of treats like babka, cakes and cookies. And now we have plenty of leftovers. Well not now… after Christmas we did.
That’s about it. I’m making this a quick overview because I’m so late. I did manage to get a litt bit of footage on Christmas morning so I’ve made a little video for the channel. So be sure to check it out.
Mostly I’m writing this because I wanted to wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
Oh, and a happy New Year!
Thanks all, enjoy the rest of the holidays.
We went to Santaland on Tuesday!
0This past Tuesday we went with my family to Santaland at Macy’s on 34th St. The kids (Drake and my niece), had a blast. We took them to see the window displays and then we went up to Santaland. Drake loved it until we got to Santa’s cabin. Yup, he’s still skiddish around Santa Clause. It okay though, Santa wasn’t upset. He even told Drake he was still coming to our house on Christmas with presents for him. He did shake Santa’s hand so that’s progress. Anyway, this vlog contains all the footage I got from our journey. Hope you enjoy.
Again, let me know in the comments if I should add transcripts with these videos or what all you experienced bloggers would do to make it better. I’m a newbie and I’d love some advice. Thanks!
Our first official Vlog is live on Youtube.
Yesterday I uploaded our first real vlog to the Rebel House’s channel on Youtube. It’s an introduction to the Spring Family. You’ll get to here my reasons for starting this channel and you’ll learn a little bit about me. You’ll meet Colin, Drake and Ariel the mouse.
This is my first blog post in relation to a video on youtube obviously so I’m not to sure if I’m supposed to transcribe the video here. Comment and let me know. I appreciate all your suggestions and advice.
