Sesame Street Live: Elmo Makes Music!

I have to admit that this year's Sesame Street Live performance is the best one we've seen in a while. I've been attending Sesame Street Live performances for years now.  That's what you do when you have 5 grandchildren ranging in age from 2 - 15!  We attend the show every year when it makes its way to Honolulu, usually sometime in the summer, but we've also seen it performed in Colorado Springs.

The Ultimate Movie Popcorn Mix

I'm sure everyone is familiar with movie nights, but why should it be limited to nights?  There are days when snuggling up to watch a good movie or two is just what's needed! Specially when you can munch on my Ultimate Movie Popcorn Mix! Last week the grandsons and I went to the movies to see the latest Star Wars flick, Rogue One.  We enjoyed it and left trying to place this movie in it's place in the Star Wars story.  This led us to decide we'd need to watch ALL the Star Wars movies in ...

Jett, my 2 year-old toddler is one of Mickey's biggest fans, so this weekend we headed off to Denver to see the newest Disney Live!

This year's show features 25 Disney characters with Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy exploring scenes from Cinderella, Snow White, Toy Story, Rapunzel, Tinkerbell, and Aladdin. We were a little late so we missed the ...
