Note from the mams: Congratulations to Becky Upshaw, winner of the WAC tickets!
Happy Monday, mamas. This week’s giveaway is PERFECT for those of you with little ones — kids who may not have yet seen a show on stage at the Walton Arts Center. One of the sweetest children’s books we know — Guess How Much I Love You — will come to life on stage December 14, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. Speaking from experience, we can tell you that watching your son or daughter see a show on stage for the first time is a really special milestone. Their eyes light up and they never forget it. Pure magic.
We’ve got four tickets to see the show, and we’re pairing these tickets with a gift card for lunch or dinner at our favorite pizza place on Dickson Street — U.S. Pizza. It’s just steps away from the Walton Arts Center and the food and atmosphere are perfect for a family outing.
ABOUT THE SHOW: Based on the classic book by the same name, this show is about a bunny named Little Nutbrown Hare. He loves Big Nutbrown Hare as far as he can reach and as high as he can hop, but Big Nutbrown Hare loves him as far as his long arms can reach and as high as his strong legs can hop. This show is perfect for kids who are aged 3 to 6, but please note that this is also an infant-friendly performance, so there’s no need to get a sitter since you can bring baby brother or sister along, too.
If you don’t already own the picture book, we’d recommend checking it out at the library or picking up a copy so you can read it to your kids before they see the show. They’ll love watching the book unfold on stage.
ABOUT THE FOOD: Even the pickiest eaters in the family love U.S. Pizza. Their food has become legendary in Northwest Arkansas, and we especially like the variety they offer. If you’re not in the mood for pizza, there are award-winning salads and sandwiches on the menu, too. Click HERE to see the menu online.

I love Jesus, my family, cookies, my husband, my kids, Dr. Pepper, naptime, a good book and NWAMotherlode!
Great book, my little one bought it for her grandma before we moved away. she brings it with her for visits and they read it together.
Giggles brought on by tickles; hearing how much my 3 year old says she loves her puppies; Christmas music; date nights on my back porch; family!
I love seeing the wonder of Christmas in the eyes of my granddaughters!
I love my family!
I love that time in the morning when my kids first wake up and we get to snuggle.
neck hugs from my kids, scented candles burning in a clean, quiet kitchen, and Christmas carols!
I love the smell of a bathed baby, the sound of a dog’s tail wagging and reading each night to my kids before bed.
I would love to see my daughter’s eyes light up while watching this.
That clean baby smell and soft baby skin.
My kiddos! And quiet time 😉
My 2 year olds smile, laugh and off the wall comments! I have to also include: rainbows, pink roses, sweet tea and family moments!
The thing I love the most is the time I get to spend with my family! I love Sundays where we don’t have any plans and don’t have to leave the house. I love Christmas time and everything that goes with it. I love the excitment in my 2 1/2 year old son about everything. I love my girls night out! I love my girlfriends, I would be a mess without them! I love my husband! I could go on and on!!!
I love going to see the lights with my family!
I love hearing my children laughing and playing sweetly with each other! This time of year I’m also especially thankful for the time we get to spend with extended family, cousins, and friends that we don’t get to see often throughout the rest of the year! And love this book – we have two copies – would love to take my 3 kiddos on a date to see the play!
I just love rainy days, newborn babies, puppy breath, watching my toddler run, making someone happy when they least expect it, and the warm glow of Christmas lights.
Belly laughs, snuggles, Friday evenings, cheese dip, date night, a hot cup of coffee and some great conversation
I love the sweet smile and the way my baby girl hugs my neck and I love the way that my little boy tells me how much he loves me and that I’m the bestest mom ever. Very blessed with 2 amazing kids and their Daddy
Would love to give these tickets to my grand daughters and their mom and dad. What fun!
I love my husband and our four children. I feel so blessed that God brought Drew in my life & chose me to be the mother to Cayden, Addye, Kynzie, and Isaiah.
I love my sweet family, sweet tea, chips and salsa, driving with the windows down through the country, chapstick, and weekends … just to name a few! Would love to take my son to see this!
I love hugs from my daughter, hearing her say “mommy I made you happy”, and cuddling while watching movies. My daughter loves watching “Guess How Much I Love You” shorts on TV, she would love to see this!
I would love for my friend, Becky, to win this. She’s just gone through a really tough divorce and has two little boys to whom she is a GREAT mom!
I love my family, nothing is more precious than the smiles and giggles of my grandchildren!
Sounds like a great family time. Girls would love it. And pizza is always a hit. I love my church and family so much and all my online family.
I love butterfly kisses from my kids, hot tea after a long day, bedtime prayers, and watching my husband coach our son’s soccer team! My mom will be in town to go with us. She is a retired preschool teacher/director and children’s books are her favorite!!
Someone I love very much and unconditionally is my Mom who has Alzheimer’s.I have quit work to take care of her, and even though she does not know that I am her daughter anymore, my moms sweet heart shines through her eyes, and way inside, I know she still loves me, and I her. Alzheimer’s, what a terrible disease.
my childrens laughter, dark chocolate, shoes, sushi, red wine, going to the movies….
MY son would LOOOVVVEE this show! Great mother-son time and dinner as well – win win.
I love to belly laugh with my kids
I love simple days at home with happy kids, warm weather and the promise of chocolate later!
I love my kids and husband, coffee, the smell of autumn leaves, and flowers, just to name a few! 🙂
I love spending time with my family and my friends and their families!
I love running, my children’s faces and chocolate chip cookies 🙂
I love spending time with my beautiful girls. I love going to church, singing, Christmas and most importantly God!!
Love this book. Love my family
There is so much in life to love (and sometimes I get so busy that I forget to appreciate them all)!! I love spending time outdoors in the fall and spring when the weather is just perfect and everything around me is so beautiful! We try to go camping and hiking as often as possible to enjoy it. In this busy world, it can be difficult to appreciate that we live in one of the most wonderful places in the world!
I would love to win! It’s my little girls 5th birthday that night!
I love my kids, my amazing husband, my parents, my friends, living in NW Arkansas, and Jesus!
I would love to take my girls. My 1st grader loves to read and would love this so much.
I love this story! One of my students bought this for my oldest son before he was born, so it was the first book I ever read to him. I always say “How much does mommy love you?” He always answers “to the moon and back!” I get to love on my four-year-old and four-month-old everyday and I get to send my love to Heaven to my triplet sons. All five of my sons have been the most miraculous gifts in my life! There is nothing I love more!!
Coffee, cinnamon, laughing with good friends, snuggling with my husbands & kids, and sleeping in!
Would love to take my 2 boys and hubby
I love my children. My son and daughter are my light. I love them to the moon and back.
I absolutely love watching our kiddos and being amazed as they grow and change. I love their hearts, their laughter, their jokes (they’ve entered the stage of REALLY funny), their conversation, their opinions, their athletic skills, their hugs, and their smiles. I love watching my husband with them as well. All such a blessing! I’m also a fan of diet coke and naps! lol 🙂
I love my children’s belly laughs!! They brighten up any day!!
When my 13 year old was just a baby …I read that book to her every night…I even have a picture of her at 3 months old holding it with me while reading it to her…I LOVE that picture soo much…now my 5 year old always says to me she loves me to the moon and back…LOVE LOVE LOVE
I would love to take my 3 girls!
I read this book to all 3 of my children and still have it. Would love to go on a date with them and enjoy making another memory with them.
I love seeing the joy of Christmas throug the eyes of my 3 kids.
I love creating new holiday traditions with my own family especially ones designed to instill a sense of peace and calm during Advent – the season leading up to Christmas. It seems as if everyone is rushing so I love to take a step back. We hang a few ornaments each night, curl up on the couch, read a bit of the Christmas story, talk about our day and try to escape the madness of shopping season!
Great giveaway!! I love…everything about my kids, Dr. Pepper, cuddling with my husband, movies with fiends, Christmas…I could go on.
I love my Caylie more than anything in the world! She would love to see this show!
I love my Caylie more than anything in the world!
i love selfless acts of kindness
I love watching my beautiful miracle blessings play with each other…nothing can make me weep faster than seeing the love between my amazing daughters. They were both worth all the trials we went through for them to arrive, and it’s obvious God made them for each other.
I love my grandkids to the moon and back! They are my bright and shining stars that light up my life!What a joy to be able to take them to a WAC show!
My almost 3-yr old boy would love this.
I love my son’s smile and the little lisp he has. I love the little blond curls that fall on his forehead. I love this time of year. I love Jesus. 🙂
I love my 2 boys, the joy to my heart they give, my Husband & BFF, the moments we are all snuggled on the couch on Family night watching a great movie, I love when they call me “Momma” and when they smile!!
