It's taking MEGA will power on my part to keep me from giving this to my boys' early this season. My guys are still allll about Minecraft so I know they will go nuts over this latest game release: Minecraft Story Mode. How is this different from regular Minecraft? It's a single-player story mode. You are off on specific adventures in 5 parts. … [Read more...]

My status on Facebook the other day announced that I was setting up a new Minecraft server for my kids.  I'm no longer amazed at how many kids are playing Minecraft but I was taken back by all the responses of folks either being impressed because they thought I was some kind of tech whiz. It's so amazingly easy that I'm almost embarrassed to … [Read more...]

My baby turned 10 today.  Hard to believe!  It truly feels like just yesterday that I held him on his first day of life at the hospital. It's been a great day for him because we got some snow here in Philly so the kids ended up with a Snow Day from school.  Cancelled school and hours of fun snow time on a kid's birthday?  It's like a dream come … [Read more...]

Where have I been?  This must have happened recently because I can't believe I would have missed it.  We got the original last year - that's the Lego Minecraft $34.99 on Amazon and it's a cube that looks like Minecraft that comes with Minecraft shaped legos, a Steve and a Creeper figure. But the other day I was on and a couple of new Minecraft … [Read more...]

Happened to notice that these Minecraft t-shirts at Kohls.com are now on sale - we paid full price a few weeks ago!  My kids get comments ALL. THE. TIME when they are wearing these.  Just yesterday in Hershey, Nate had one of his tees on and apparently some kid in line said to him, "dude, do you even hear me talking to you?  I'm talking to you … [Read more...]

Two years in and the Minecraft obsession in our house hasn't waned.  We have a server, Minecraft toys and regularly have someone playing at our house.  My 9 year old is the big player but my 6 year old has gotten into the action recently too.

If you have a boy who is 7+, chances are you have heard of Minecraft or he's already playing! My 9-year-old son has been playing Minecraft for a little over a year now. It's the *it* game for boys right now, or it sure seems like it! While I play, I would imagine most Moms don't (I'm a geek) and don't really have any clue what about the game. … [Read more...]
