Illumination Tree Lights at The Morton Arboretum FLASH GIVEAWAY - Family 4 Pack {sponsored}

*the opinions are mine alone.  I received 4 passes to attend Illumination with my family in exchange for this giveaway and any posts I do regarding Illumination* 

Mr. Mailman just showed up with these

And, I'm so excited!  Illumination opens TONIGHT at The Morton Arboretum.  Oh, can you imagine what that'll look like with the almost 6 inches of snow that we are suppose to be getting overnight.


So, here's your chance to win a Family 4 Pack of tickets.

Information from The Morton Arborteum website - 

"Declared a "must-see destination" by the Chicago Tribune, this annual display returns this year with even more lights, sights and sounds that will transform a Chicago-area wintertime walk in the woods into a colorful, inspiring experience like no other.
From November 20, 2015 through January 2, 2016, The Morton Arboretum glows with dazzling LED lights and trees that respond to your touch and voice, as Illumination: Tree Lights at The Morton Arboretum returns for a third  year.
See trees in a different light.
  • Stroll over a mile of innovative lights and projections.
  • Hug or sing to trees, and they respond.

ChiTAG Family Weekend Pass WINNER

Congratulations to Meggan Sommerville on winning the ChiTAG Family Weekend Pass!

Since the kids were just old enough to understand, checkers (or the original name draughts) has been a family favorite. It has taught my kids to never give up and look at the big picture
