But watch out! You never know what that sneaky fox Swiper might be up to along the way! Visit, for more information.

Win Tickets To See Max & Ruby Live In Ottawa!

As my kids are getting older (of course they are), they are starting to enjoy the finer things in life a little more. Things such as live shows featuring their favourite characters are at the top of their lists and I couldn’t be happier about it.

When I found out that Max & Ruby would be bringing their Nutcracker Suite show to our town, I was immediately excited! My daughter loves Max & Ruby, and although my son pretends he is too big for it, once he saw the commercial, he was hooked. Here’s a little info on the show:
