Praying for Babies/Going to Plays

I.e. The Winner of the Snowflake Give-Away {and} a Call to Prayer

First off, the wiener of the Snowflake Give-away is...

Erin! (Commenter Number 18)

"I haven't been to the MIA in a very long time, this is a great reminder to check it out. I would love to take my niece to this show, she is a huge fan of live theater. Plus, as a new mom, I'd love the chance to get out myself. :) Erin

Congratulations, Erin! Please email me directly @ mom4life[at]comcast[dot]net and we'll get you set up with your tickets.

Also? I was only teasing about the "wiener" part. I got that from Pioneer Woman long ago and have wanted to steal it ever since.

Plus, I wanted to be light-hearted before getting just a wee bit heavy because...

Today is the somber anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, which legalized abortion in this country. I hope you are able to do something special for the unborn babies today, whether it be extra prayer; extra penance; and/or REALLY LOVING UP THE LITTLE ONES IN YOUR LIFE.

Children are precious. Life is precious. Pray pray PRAY for an end to abortion.

About that Give-Away...

The comments are trickling in on my give-away below, which makes me wonder if, indeed, all my readers are in Pittsburgh! In the off chance that I do have some locals reading, here are a couple of clarifications:

1. You get to pick the day(s) you can attend. The show runs until February 22nd, and the box office at Children's Theatre will work with you.

2. It's fine if you haven't visited MIA before! Just leave a comment. Any comment!

It sounds like I'm begging and I guess I am. It's too good a show for you to miss.

"Snowflake": Lovely, Lyrical, Simply Great

(a review and a give-away)

(just for you)

If you're local and want to plan a fun outing...

I highly recommend going to see Snowflake.

We did. See?

 I know it's a blurry selfie and all, but that was us. I promise!

I'm never sure about trips to the theater because, well, some of my kids can be a little squirmy. I can assure you that Snowflake will capture and hold their attention.

It's magical, really, the way he does it.

Just one actor...

And a bunch of props...

And for 65 minutes, he commands the stage.

Honestly, I can be a bit of a snob when it comes to a children's production. I don't like shows that are over-the-top silly, and I wondered (when I saw the photos) if this show might be too much. It wasn't. It was sweet and endearing and it made us sigh.

(It was just my daughter and me.)

(Perfection. A perfect outing.)

 * * *

Now here's the happy news for YOU: I have a 4-pack of tickets to share! Granted, you probably can't fly in from...Pittsburgh or something, but if you're local, here's your chance.  Leave a comment saying if you've been to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts before (it's attached, you see, to Children's Theatre), and if you have, what's your favorite thing to see?

I'll tell you what one of ours is:

Or rather, I'll let the picture tell you.

Comments will close at midnight on Wednesday, then I'll announce the winner on Thursday morning.  Please enter the give-away! If you don't, you can't win, and I want you to!

Good luck and God bless you,
