BROADWAY’S #1 HOLIDAY HIT, THE GRINCH COMES TO THE FOX THEATRE, NOVEMBER 17-19

The Musical at the Fox Theatre from Friday, November 17 through Sunday, November 19; part of the Fifth Third Bank Fox Theatre Series. Hailed by The New York Times as “100 times better than any bedside story,” this classic holiday musical will enchant adults and children alike.

The Grinch broke box office records for two consecutive years on Broadway during its holiday engagements at the St. James and Hilton theaters in New York.

A total delight for both kids and adults.” 

Audiences will discover the magic of Dr. Seuss’ classic holiday tale as it comes to life live on stage. Featuring the hit songs “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch” and “Welcome Christmas,” THE GRINCH discovers there’s more to Christmas than he bargained for in this heart-warming holiday classic.

This post is sponsored. All opinions are 100% my own. RoosterFin Games Ninja Squirrels

RoosterFin Games Ninja Squirrels is a fast paced, fun, hand-slapping color matching game. My husband was so impressed with the name and the design of the game that he had to share it on his Facebook page. My husband is a black belt and probably considers himself a Ninja Squirrel on some level.

Ninja Squirrels, the game of color matching nut snatching fun comes with 60 cards, 4 character pieces, a battle ring and a bunch of acorns. This game is a family game for ages 7 to adult and for two to four players. The game is relatively straightforward, so if you have a Kindergartner that knows his or her colors, they can play this game.

The object of the game is to collect the most acorns. You collect acorns by flipping over cards. If your ninja color and acorn match you slam your hand on an acorn of the same color on the board. If you hand is first on the acorn, you get to keep it. You play until all acorns are gone.

Kids will get a kick out of slapping your hand and trying to be quick. This game will improve focus, concentration, and coordination skills! The faster you throw down cards, the more fun the game is.

Would I recommend this game? Yes, this is a cute game. I love the name and found it incredibly creative. Pick up a copy for your next game night!

Lumpy Cubes

This post is sponsored by RoosterFin Games. All opinions are 100% my own. Lumpy Cubes.
Family game night is so important in our household because it gives us time to reconnect as a family. Our school week is usually spent running from one thing to another. Usually, Friday night I set aside for the family game night. So, this Friday we headed over to my mom's house for dinner and a little game playing. This week my daughter and I played Lumpy Cubes.


Lumpy Cubes

Lumpy Cubes is a much cooler and more modern version of the Memory Game. It will have you thinking and recalling on your memory. Which apparently mine needs a little work because by the time I said 3-2-1 and we threw our cubes up in the air half the time I had forgotten the order of the Lumpy Cubes.

Lumpy Cubes, memory games, family, games, for kids, for adults, party, family night, roosterfin, review

Each player selects which color they would like to be. The game is for 1-4 players and the ages of six and up. The cards are shuffled, and one card is selected. Everyone can memorize the card for about 10 seconds. Then, a player yells 3-2-1, and everyone drops the cubes. You are then to stack your lumpy cubes to recreate the card. The first player that does so correctly yells Lumpy, and the card is checked. We had the incorrect stacking quite a few times so make sure you check the card. If the stacking is correct, then the player wins the card. The first player to have three cards is the winner!


Would I recommend Lumpy Cubes? Yes, if you have a child that's in elementary school this is a great memory game. Actually, it's the perfect game for the whole family. We all can use exercise for our brains! Just like we exercise our bodies our brain needs a workout as well!
