Hey Families! Things to do this weekend around Louisville with kids - December 13,14,15

 photo IMG_1093_zps36516e5d.jpgI think my main focus for the weekend will be shopping.  I have a few items to round out my shopping for the holiday season and I want to be able to say I am finished come Sunday night!  Also, I don't know how recently I have posted a picture of myself, but I am really long hair now and I am chopping it off to donate - this FRIDAY night with the co-founder of this website and my good friend, Jeanette.  I'll be sure to post a photo.

Speaking of shopping: Do you get Earth Fare coupons via email?  I do and they are really great coupons - sometime free stuff! They told me they will send out 5 coupons via email beginning this Saturday, Dec. 14th. Each coupon will only be good for a few days and they are “while supplies last.” Sign up for their email coupons by clicking here. (You can unsubscribe at any time.)

Start your weekend off with a listen to our Louisville.am podcast, most downloaded podcast of the bunch.  I chat with Dr. Korie Acord of Derby City Pediatric Dentistry - a LouFamFun Sponsor and my children's dentist.  Entertaining podcast about teeth?  I think so.

Don't forget, the LouFamFun Holiday list is still full of great ideas!

Here are my picks:

It's the Revolution Church Holiday Art + Craft Fair from 6:30-9pm.  More details here.

Also, Locust Grove has their Christmastide event. It is both Friday and Saturday nights.  There's music, storytelling and refreshments in the beautiful, historic setting of this wonderful Louisville treasure. The fee is adults $6, children $3 ($18 family max)

Old Tyme Christmas on the Avenue - Frankfort Ave.  It's exactly what it sounds like, they try to take you back in time.  Events essentially take place all day from a breakfast, to a dog costume contest to visits to Santa and horse drawn carriage rides for 50 cents!

From 10am-noon, The Carnegie Center in New Albany has a family fun workshop - Snowy Owls (bring a pine cone)! It is free but pre-registration is required - call (812) 944-7336 to register It is a drop-in workshop but arrive no later than 11:30am. Registration is limited, suggested ages are 2-12.

How much fun does this sound? From the Tom Sawyer Park website "In 2013, there were a lot of very good boys and girls and the elves had trouble stuffing all of those gifts into Santa’s sleigh! Some of the gifts have fallen out and landed right here in our park! Use your GPS device to locate each “gift”. Once you have found all of the “gifts”, return to the registration table to claim a gift of your own! Register from 12pm-3pm at Activities Building Cost: $5.00 per participant

Have a fabuLOUs weekend!
