Have You Been?

If you’re a mom in the DFW area, chances are good that you know there have been two major entertainment options that opened in Grapevine during the last year – Sealife and Legoland. Both locations will be participating in “Trick-or-Treat Trails” hosted by Grapevine Mills Mall from 6 – 8 p.m. on Halloween night. This event provides a fun, safe environment for children and their families to come and collect goodies at various stores throughout the mall.

Sealife is an incredible aquarium with hands on learning experiences that I know my boys would love.

They have some awesome opportunities coming up to make the next few months extra special for your kids.

Currently the Sealife Facebook page is hosting a “Halloween Costume Contest”. You can win great prizes! 1st place- 4 SeaLife Annual Passes, 2nd place- 4 SeaLife day tickets, 3rd place- 2 SeaLife day tickets! Check out their Facebook page to find out ALL the details.

In celebration of the time of year you can see pumpkins being carved underwater on October 19, 22, 26 & 29 at 2pm.

There are also supposed to be some fun Christmas events coming up too. I’ll make sure to keep you in the loop.

Dallas Fort Worth

Legoland Discovery Center is a world made of Legos! See entire cities, landmarks and even rides in Lego-tastic style.

  • Participate in great Brick-or-Treat activities on October 22 and 29.

In November, you can bring 3 canned food products to admissions and receive $3 off one standard admission ticket to either Legoland or SeaLife. Bring enough cans to cover the whole family and you will receive $3 off every ticket! In an effort to help local area food banks all canned food will be donated to help the needy during this holiday season. (This deal is only valid when walk up tickets are available.)

Then in December, there will be multiple events at both locations that will help make your Christmas season the best ever! Check back on the SeaLife and Legoland Discovery Center sites to get all of the details.

MD Anderson Arrival - Waiting to See Doctor

Joey and I drove to Houston yesterday . . . after making sure our kids and animals were all taken care of, which is always a bigger deal than I anticipate it being. It's been a long time since Joey and I have had the chance to "get away" just the two of us, so even with the reason for the trip, it was nice to drive and chat and stop at Collin Street Bakery and Cooper Farms store and eat at Cracker Barrel as if we were on a vacation.

If you've ever taken an anti-anxiety medication, you know the strange feeling of knowing academically that the facts should be upsetting to you, but feeling inexplicably calm in the face of those still upsetting facts. It isn't truly inexplicable, though, as you took a medication that is formulated to do that very thing. However, recently I have found myself experiencing this very same feeling without any medication, and I am confident that it is the definition of "peace that passes understanding."

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

I Cried the First Time I Watched My Son Wrestle

My middle son, Colt, told me not too long ago that he wanted to wrestle. We are a sports family, but wrestling has never been one of those sports. AND this child is on the spectrum . . . now, all that really means for him is that he's not going to pick up on any social hints you drop, he's incredibly literal, and he's finicky about sensations. Yes, the child who is finicky about sensations told me he wanted to wrestle - where people are constantly touching you and holding you down and forcing your body into positions you don't want it to be in. But I have always determined that I would not hold my children back by forcing artificial boundaries on them that they don't have for themselves - so if the boy wanted to wrestle, we were going to let him try it out.

A couple of weekends ago, we went to his first wrestling tournament. I was so naive. We were supposed to be there at 9 am, and, in all seriousness, I made plans for 11 am. I thought we would walk in, he would h…
