Wordless Wednesday: PBS Kids Curious George Holiday Spectacular Event

Wordless Wednesday:
 PBS Kids Curious George 
Holiday Spectacular Event
Airs November 23rd on PBS
(After being a teacher for 20 years there was no way I could miss this PBS Kids event!)
Em loves to walk the red carpet and the blue carpet and the yellow carpet, too!
Not sure if that’s a good or bad thing.

Looks like the man in the yellow hat left a little something behind.

We were treated to a monkey delicious dessert featuring Curious George’s picture.

Wordless Wednesday: Kris Jenner Book Launch NYC

Wordless Wednesday
Kris Jenner Book Launch Event
The Darby, NYC
Today, at The Darby in NYC, I was treated to a wonderful book launch event hosted by Moms & The City.
Kris Jenner’s book Kris Jenner..and All Things Kardashian hit the bookshelves on November 1st. I had the pleasure of being part of a chat session with Kris and found out what a sensitive and caring person she is and how inspiring she is as a mother and business woman. She also graced the small group with fashion and skin care tips! Kris was on hand to autograph her book! I’ll be reading my copy tonight!

Anyone who knows my family, knows that we are huge Disney fans! It’s no different when it comes to Disney On Ice. We have been at the shows since our 20 year old was just about ready to turn one. Going to a Disney On Ice show is like getting to go to Disney World right in your own backyard. The joy I have seen on my children’s faces as Mickey and Minnie skate out to greet everyone is just unmeasurable. So, it is no different now with our youngest daughter who just turned five.
I already know when we go to see Dare To Dream, there will probably be one point in the show where I will have to just bite the insides of my cheeks so that a tear does not escape down my cheek. The look of pure love for the Disney characters and the joy she will feel watching the show always gets to me. 
So, without me going on and on I am quite excited about the new Disney on Ice Dare To Dream. We are thrilled to be captivated by many Disney Princesses  including Tiana, Rapunzel and Cinderella, just to name a few. Of course there is always something for the boys and I’m sure Pascal and Flynn Ryder will make the show very entertaining for everyone.

Review: Puss In Boots 3D In Theaters October 28th!

Puss In Boots
In Theaters October 28th
Recently, I had the chance to attend a screening of Puss In Boots 3D with my family. I was a little uncertain of the movie, since I generally find one that works featuring a secondary character from another movie. In this case I was dead wrong. Puss In Boots 3D was incredible. I enjoyed it from beginning to end, and was pulled into the story within minutes.

I found quite a few unexpected surprises in the movie, from the semi-evil character of Humpty Dumpty(Zach Galifianakis) to soft cunning moves of  Kitty Softpaws(Selma Hayek). Of course my favorite character was Puss In Boots(Antonio Banderas), who had the group of screener actually cheering for him when he proved himself worthy.
You’ll also find the storybook characters Jack and Jill, seen in a whole new light, as everyone sets out on  a quest to find the golden eggs that can be found at the top of Jack’s beanstalk. This is a fast moving, joke-filled, delightful movie that can be enjoyed by the entire family. If you enjoyed Shrek, you will love Dreamworks Puss In Boots. It’s along the same lines of fun and very lighthearted. It’s well worth seeing it at the theater. You won’t be disappointed!
Also, if you are a cat lover, you MUST see this movie! There are specialty jokes within the movie that a cat owner will roll over laughing about!
PS: The Puss In Boots 3D Kitty glasses are adorable!
You can also catch Puss In Boots and Kitty Softpaws around NYC this weekend! The two life size characters will make an appearance in several places in NYC, Saturday October 29th! They will be at Farmingdale Library, Brooklyn’s Children’s Museum, Central Park Pumpkin Festival and Books of Wonder. Please check out NYCBuzzbo for more details about times and addresses!

Whatever you do, don’t get an detention!
For children younger than 10 or those who just want something a little less menacing, there is the Pitch Black Touch Tunnel to crawl through. There are also some fun games and interactive activities for all! We enjoyed making faces on paper pumpkins, creating take home spiders, coloring books, and touch and guess boxes.
Don’t forget to come in costume! There are age level costume contests and even a costume parade!
Our family had a wonderful time tonight at the Halloween Spooktacular and yours will, too! There is a lot to learn at Liberty Science Center. It’s a fantastic way to celebrate Halloween and get in a little learning, too!
By the way, you can even enjoy watching the movie Spookley! 
If you are hungry, you can grab a bite to eat in the cafe. The only bad part is when it’s time to leave. I have to say, now that I have gone to this event, I will be back for more Halloween fun next year!
