This Dad Turns His Preemie Son Into a Superhero

November 11, 2014

We love this touching video of North Carolina dad (and professional movie prop maker) Eric Hart making an Iron Man suit for his son, Collier, who has spent his short life hooked up to tubes and wires in a hospital after being born premature. Dad wanted to help Collier feel brave, and also thought the costume was fitting for Halloween, so he spent hours assembling it himself.  The result is a perfect, tiny Iron Man outfit. We’re rooting for you, Collier! Check out the sweet video below.

Sigh. Watch Children Interact with Technology That Isn’t THAT Old.

November 04, 2014

We just love Ellen DeGeneres, and her newest video is worth a watch. She gets a bunch of kids together and introduces them to technology that isn’t that old (think answering machines, typewriters, etc.) and then has them interact with the items. Their reactions are, in short, priceless. From their confusion about where the FaceTime is on the bulky “old time” phone which was probably “used 100 years ago” (their words, not ours) to their frustration about answering machines, the video will leave you going, “Ahhhh, youth.” Or perhaps, “Get off my lawn.” Either way.

Check out the video below.

If You Thought You Decked Your House Out For Halloween…

Posted by Lauren the Web Girl on October 27, 2014

If you’ve got skeletons hanging from your porch and a few fake headstones, you’re doing well in terms of Halloween decorations. But take a look at this home in Naperville, Illinois and you’ll probably feel ready to kick your Halloween spirit up a level or two. This house features an insanely intricate light show that sings along to Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

As the house lights up, you can also see a pretty detailed faux graveyard in the front yard. How fun would it be to take the kids trick-or-treating here, right? But you have to feel sorry for their neighbors….and wonder about their power bill…..

This Creative Mom Wins at Halloween

Jessica Chavkin, mom to 4-month-old Noah, takes Halloween prettyyy seriously, and we respect her dedication to the holiday. Check out her Instagram and you’ll notice that she’s dressed baby Noah up in a different Halloween costume every day this month. I mean, when your kid’s that cute, why pick just one costume, right?

We’re in love with this adorable Where’s Waldo? (Where’s Noah?) costume.

Nobody Puts This Kiddo in the Corner

Dirty Dancing is arguably one of the greatest movies, featuring epic dance scenes that make you want to get up out of your chair, even if your moves are highly limited (speaking from personal experience here). There’s something particularly heartwarming about seeing little kids who are enthralled with this movie. Check out an eight-year-old named Charlie, who is doing Patrick Swayze proud as he dances along perfectly to the final scene in the movie. Seriously, the hip action is something worthy of Dancing with the Stars. 

You go, Charlie. Show ’em what you’ve got.
