Calling All Young Padawans . . .

I can't tell you how excited my three padawans were when we were invited to come to a special media screening of the new LEGO Star Wars Miniland Model. This exhibit is a large-scale, interactive model, clearly made of LEGOs.

I have to admit that it was pretty impressive. The Millenium Falcon actually rises from the depths of the Tattoine. There are special features tucked away in nooks and crannies just waiting for the kids to find them. My oldest son was the most thrilled with the interactive game that allowed him to join in on the fascinating scene before him. (The only negative is that there is ONE and only ONE of these games in the entire building so when it's busy that's going to be a battle waiting to happen.)

This feature is only going to be at the Legoland Discovery Center in Grapevine for a limited time, so if you have kids who are as Star Wars nuts as mine are, you'll want to get out there soon.

You can use this link to get after 5 p.m. tickets for as low as $9.75. If you have toddlers (4 & under) you can go on Toddler Tuesdays where you pay $14 for a special package with one adult and two toddler tickets. Then any additional kids tickets (ages 5-12) are just $5 each. These Toddler Tuesdays are every third Tuesday of the month, entry available from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.


  1. My hubby is SO EXCITED about this exhibit... We really need to go ASAP :)

    1. Isn't it funny when it's the ADULTS who get super excited about this kind of thing. LOL

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…

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…
