Watch Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells (#giveaway)

Here in Ottawa, December 22 is the first day of the Christmas break for the public schools, which means the beginning of the all-day “Is it Christmas yet? Is it Christmas yet?” line of questioning. Sounds like a great day to plan an outing to see “Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells” presented by Centrepointe Theatres in Ottawa.

As soon Read more […]

I know it’s all holidays all the time around my blog, and quite frankly in my life too, but it’s fun to take some time as a family and do something that isn’t necessarily related to Christmas. We have always had a great time at Disney Live! performances (we’ve seen Mickey’s Rockin’ Road Show in 2011 and 2014) so we’re all looking forward to a whole new experience with Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival! A little about the show: Mickey Mouse and friends rock the world with the stars Read more […]
