Finding the Happy

On from angry sad blogging...

First, the Addams Family was fantastic, we did NOT leave during Intermission, Bones enjoyed it, and I highly recommend it.

When I went to buy our tickets, I went directly to the Box Office, I informed them I was bringing my son and the most important thing was that he could see. I didn't want to pay the big bucks, but he needed to be able to see. We ended up in the lowest balcony and they really were fantastic seats, although I don't think there is a bad seat at the Kravis Center. More fun still, I found out that since I was bringing a student, he and I got tickets for $25. I only had to pay full price for one. Now that I know that... I'll be taking my kids to more things.

We should have anyway. I've been a cultural clod, I guess, as a parent. But we'll be looking into more venues and taking the boys. I just couldn't bring myelf to consistently shell out $500 every time we wanted to see something, but with student discounts, it's doable.

And the Kravis Center may not have Cheesecake... but they have Snowcaps! ARGH! My all time movie favorite candy...

Christmas is approaching, evident by the fact my boss is singing Christmas Carols when doing mundane work. That's one of his idiosyncracies. He sings when bored...

And evidently Christmas is approaching as his songs are more holiday-esque.

From a buddy of mine via email, I give you something to get you started on this holiday season. A most fun video of the Hallelujah Chorus from Alaska... watch it. You'll laugh and smile. I promise.

The kids in the cabinet crack me up...

Culture can actually be fun, lol! And thank you for sharing that video...I really needed it.

I take the Boy to everything you can think of. He has been to the theatre more times than most adults I know, and he is only 8 years old. :)

Love the video! And I think it's wonderful that you expose him to diverse creative outlets.

That was the sweetest video...I really loved it...

I wish I could download video out here in the middle of nowhere. But even so, this made me think that me and my own husband probably didn't culturally expand our kids horizons as often as we should have. (Same as you. Ticket costs)
