When I think of the Wiggles,
 I can only think of one thing:
Family Fun!
The Wiggles have been a part of our family
 fun for many years!
Since my children go from age 20 down to age 4,
 I can definitely say that we are BIG Wiggles fans! I don’t think I can remember a day going by that did not have Wiggles as a part of it!
With that being said, I was very excited to hear that The Wiggles would be on tour and in our area this summer.
I got even more thrilled, okay, so this is how you know what a big fan I am, when I heard you could actually BE the 5th Wiggle!
The Wiggles are going to be choosing someone to sing alongside of Anthony, Murray, Jeff, Sam and all the other
Wiggly friends as they perform one of our family favorites, “Fruit Salad”!(Yummy!Yummy!)
All you need to do is submit yourself singing to the track of “Fruit Salad”. (no longer than 3minutes) You can check the link below for all the details and dates! Good Luck!

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast at NJPAC

Disney's Beaty and the Beast
NETworks presents:
Beauty and the Beast
Newark, NJ
June 22-26, 2011
Wednesday night I had the pleasure of attending opening night of 
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast at New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, NJ.
 By now, we had all probably heard of 
Beauty and the Beast, but to see it live on stage is just magical. 
NETworks Presentations, LLC does a wonderful job of
sprinkling a little bit of magic into our everyday lives. 
The scenery is absolutely breathtaking, the costuming is exquisite, 
and the choreography makes you wants to get out of your seat and dance along!
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is a sheer pleasure to attend, from beginning to end! Upon entereing NJPAC your little ones can enjoy a toy tea party set-up or two to pass the time in the lobby before the show begins. Upon entering the grand theater and being shown to your seat, you cannot help but notice the beautiful rose adorned upon the stage. This really sets the mood before the fun even begins. There is no better way to see “Beauty and the Beast” than live. I only had to look around me at all the children and adults to see just how empowering this show really was as the crowd cheered with delight and I did see a few teary eyes in our section when Beauty and Beast danced to their special song.
If you have the chance to see NETworks Disney’s Beauty and the Beast do not miss it. It’s a wonderful experience  for children of any age and great family fun! You won’t be disappointed!

NETworks Presents Disney’s Beauty and the Beast opens at NJPAC on Wednesday, June 22nd at 7:30 p.m. and continues Thursday, June 23rd at 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.; Friday, June 24th at 8 p.m.; Saturday, June 25th at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.; and Sunday, June 26th at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Ticket prices range from $24 to $100 and may be purchased by telephone at 1-888-GO-NJPAC (1-888-466-5722), by visiting the NJPAC Box Office at One Center Street in downtown Newark, or online at NETworks Presents Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is made possible in part by Cadillac, TDBank, New Jersey State Council on the Arts and Discover Jersey Arts.

The X-Factor Audition Taping at Prudential Center

                               The X-Factor
             Audition Taping at Prudential Center

Recently, I was lucky enough to attend one on my own
Newark Macaroni Kid events. I was so excited to find the event
and even happier to check it out with my two sons. We all went
to the audition taping of The X-Factor! The X-Factor is a reality television singing competition created by Simon Cowell. It will premiere in September 2011 on FOX network.

The competition is open to solo singers or groups and has n
o upper age limit. You do have to be 12 years old to compete. Tonight we did see some groups, like the great two person group called Ausem! There was also a 12 year old girl that was super talented! Of course there were a few people that slipped through the cracks and some that gave us a real laugh.

The panel of judges on The X-Factor consists of four people. Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, L.A. Reid and Nicole Scherzinger. What a great mix of personalities. I have to say that Simon Cowell was really much nicer in person and Paula was just as sweet as she appeared to be when she was on American Idol. She was even nice enough to tweet me later on!


The audience of The X-Factor audition taping was very energetic and got a little loud at times. For the most part everyone agreed on what talent was good and what was not. Thank goodness there were a lot more good than not. I personally cannot wait for The X-Factor to air. If it turns out to be half as entertaining as the taping, I don’t think I will miss an episode of it!

June 14th! Happy Flag Day!


  U.S. Flag Day
Happy Flag Day
June 14
Being a teacher for 20 years, I always looked forward to Flag Day and all of the Flag Day celebrations I would have with the classes.
The flag holds so much symbolism and importance to every person.
In the United States, Flag Day is celebrated every year on June 14th. Although Flag Day is not a federal holiday, the state of PA. uses it as a state holiday. This day celebrates the day the USA adopted its flag in 1777. President Woodrow Wilson made
Flag Day official in 1916.
 In 1949 National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress.

There are many ways to celebrate Flag Day. Some people celebrate Flag Day by flying the flag in front of their house or by hand. We will be making flags from paper and also flag cookies.
Have a great Flag Day!
