The building housing the Portland Aquarium is going to be demolished next year.  The aquarium will be closing business on President's Day, February 15, 2016.  All of the animals will be rehomed to aquariums across the country while the aquarium looks for a new location.

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays! - Visit Storybook Lane in Forest Grove!

I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season.  There are still lots of fun things to do until Christmas, and some things are open until New Year's as well if you are having trouble finding the time.  Check out the Holiday Events Guide for more info.

I just found out about this fun event on Grant's Getaways, and wanted to share it with you.  Storybook Lane is located at 4288 SW Bantam Ave Forest Grove, OR. They've been doing this for 80 years! It's Free!

They're only open until the 25th, but what a fun thing to do after the presents are open and you're done with dinner.

North Pole Postmark on your letters FROM Santa

NORTH POLE, AK – Once again this year, the U.S. Postal Service is offering North Pole postmarks on holiday mail.
To receive the North Pole postmark on your holiday cards, you should:
  • Purchase stamps at any post office.
  • Affix the stamps to envelopes of your choice.
  • Address the sealed envelopes, with the cards enclosed, to those on your mailing list.
  • Mail them in a larger envelope, box, Priority Mail or Express Mail package to:
ANCHORAGE AK 99530-9998
Requests must be received in Anchorage by Dec. 10 in order to ensure delivery by Christmas. The Postal Service receives hundreds of thousands of requests each year for North Pole postmarks from around the world. The service is provided at no cost. Each card or letter must have the correct amount of postage and be addressed.
Many communities around the country have local programs set up to respond to letters to Santa Claus. In North Pole Alaska, requests may be sent to – 1 Santa Claus Lane, North Pole AK 99705-9901. Check with your local post office or call 1-800-ASK-USPS.


Don't write the letter from Santa in your own handwriting.  Kids know their parents writing.  That's how I found out.

Halloween Movies - Crimson Peak and Hotel Transylvania 2

Crimson Peak

"In the aftermath of a family tragedy, an aspiring author is torn between love for her childhood friend and the temptation of a mysterious outsider. Trying to escape the ghosts of her past, she is swept away to a house that breathes, bleeds...and remembers."

This movie felt extremely long and confusing.  The story line is choppy.  Most of the devices used to develop story go absolutely nowhere and some make absolutely no sense. I am all about suspending disbelief to enjoy a story, but there is just TOO MUCH.  Other story points are crammed down your throat in several unnecessary ways. The characters aren't developed well, which is sad because they are good actors who were obviously doing their best to act the crap out of bad dialog.  And it's not scary. 

You know how people sometimes write posts on all the things wrong with the movie?  That post would be longer than the movie itself.

Verdict: Waste of Time and Money

Hotel Transylvania 2

This one was actually pretty good.  I enjoyed it more than I did the first one.  There are lots of jokes and gags that the kids will love and plenty of subtle  jokes for adults, that will go over kids heads.  There's a good little story and lots of fun action.

Verdict:  The Kids will love it and you will enjoy it too.
