I love the story, The Night Before Christmas, and read it to our family every Christmas Eve before we go to bed.  After all, that’s what my parents did when I was younger.  So when I heard that Verizon FiOS created an Instagram Storybook called “Twas the Night Before Stanley,” I had to check it out!

We all love the holidays but, let’s be honest – after cooking the first big meal, making another feast doesn’t sound all that fun.  I don’t know about you, but just during the month of December, we have a few major events in which we are hosting family and friends for holiday celebrations!  To start […]...
