"We live in a world right now that is so troubled and a lot of people are hurting and there's bad news on the television everyday it seems to be so we wanted to do something that was wholesome, that was unabashedly about the love we have for each other and the love people have for their own family and try to put a little good back into the universe. That's what was important to us."

That's not to say everything is peaches and cream. With two kids running around the house, life gets real busy really quickly.
