Santa on the Firetruck (Parkhouse) – NEXT WEEKEND

masapequa park sign

If you live on the East End, you might have seen Santa this weekend.  For those of us in the Park, Santa will be around next weekend.

Funny story.  When my in-laws bought this house twenty years ago, the first time my mother-in-law heard Santa on the firetruck, she thought the town was being attacked or the all of Massapequa was on fire.  She had never before heard so many firetrucks and their sirens kept going off all day long.  She frantically had to figure out what was happening, and fortunately, it was not an emergency, but Santa Claus visiting the families!

For more info on the Fire Truck Run with *SANTA* (PARKHOUSE) and other local events still on the calendar in and around our town, check out the article on Farmingdale-Massapequa Macaroni Kid.

Thanks, Tina (Macaroni Kid)!

Tips to help choose your health insurance


Recently our family has had to make some decisions regarding health care.  As my husband has been on disability for the last few months, we were paying for Cobra for a little bit, but since we are not getting his salary, Cobra was just too expensive for a family of six.  Paul has been researching on what was the best option for our family.

We’ve all heard of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), but what exactly is it? Well, the ACA helps more people get
 quality and affordable health insurance. It gives people the consistency and flexibility to make informed choices about their health care in ways they’ve never had before.

Most of us would not know that about 87% of health insurance applicants were eligible to receive a discount last year! Yes, there are ways we can save by knowing just ...

SOA – Goodbye Sons of Anarchy!


My husband and I have been watching Sons of Anarchy since the first season.  He has seen every episode and is one of the show’s biggest fan.  I’ve always loved the show, and always had hoped Jax and Tara would ride off into the sunset with their boys to enjoy the rest of their lives.  As we know from the end of last season, that did not happen.

For those of you who may not have seen the series finale yet (don’t you love DVRs?), I won’t ruin it for you, but needless to say, we will miss SOA.

We watched the final after show on Tuesday night.  I was kind of jealous for those fans that got to enjoy the fan event.  Here are some photos of the Sons of Anarchy Fan Event with cast and crew hosted by Kurt Sutter, FX, and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

Also, the Sons of Anarchy Col...

Massapequa Christmas Houses & Surrounding Towns

I cannot believe it has been a year since I posted about the local Christmas houses and how I developed a love for driving around looking at all the beautiful displays.  As a born and bred Bronx girl, the Christmas House of Pelham Parkway was something I passed regularly every year my whole life.  In high school, I’d pass the house every day on the way to school and would see the Garabedian family start to put up the decor in September.  Actually, when I was a kid, we had TWO houses that we would go see every year, the second one on Hollywood Avenue.  I’ve always enjoyed Christmas houses this time of year and am always on a hunt for the best ones in Massapequa and on Long Island!

WowWee MiP™ Robot #holidaygiftguide2014

WowWee® MiP™ Robot

I first heard about the MiP at Blogger Bash over the summer.  I got a chance to play with it for a little bit, and thought that my kids would absolutely LOVE it.  Fast forward a few months, and the boys’ BFF Donald brought over his MiP for a sleepover we had this past weekend.  And I was 100% right… My boys love the MiP!


MiP has an inquisitive and responsive personality communicated through motion, sounds, and RGB LED eyes. With his unique dual wheel balancing, MiP is able to navigate his surroundings, follow hand gestures, and even follow objects around. Multiple robotic modes including Roam, Stacking, Dance, and Programming.


Use the free App to drive your robot, play games with it and more while it precariously balances on its two wheels...
