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.

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 …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
