The Last Descent DVD Review and Giveaway...


The details of the passing of John Jones in Nutty Putty Cave have been well documented, but his story did not end there. Witness the power of love and family in this critically acclaimed film that shows that family bonds extend beyond this life.

Check out the trailer below of this movie...



Our Review:

We were excited to get this movie on DVD! The film was interesting to watch because my hubby and 2 of our boys have been in the Nutty Putty cave. My hubby told me about how narrow some of the paths are. We felt they did a good job with this movie about John Jones and his experiences during his last hours. He had a lot of support and people trying to save him. It was nice to see Aaron stayed with him the whole time and kept asking him questions about his life and keeping his mind busy so he wouldn't start panicking.

I liked how they showed stories of his life and how he proposed to his wife and how happy they were when they were dating. That part made me smile. They were a cute couple and you could tell they really loved each other. It was really powerful how they showed John as a spirit talking to his son before he was born and then it showed the son being born. That was a great scene! 

This movie is worth watching. Even if you don't know anything about what happened that day. After you see this movie you have a greater love for life. It really makes you want to show those around you how much you love them.

Now here's the exciting part! Enter to win this fabulous DVD below...

Luminaria Experience The Light Review...


Thanksgiving Point Luminaria: Experience the Light
-Ashton Gardens hosts more than a million lights in new holiday event-


2016 features a brand new, never-before-seen holiday light experience! Luminaria will be set within the 55-acre Ashton Gardens which is our second home during the summer. We are super excited this winter it features a million different lights on display. The general public can join in from November 25-December 31 (closed Sundays, Christmas Eve & Christmas Day).

My hubby and I had such a fun date night going to check out the Luminaria! We are really excited to tell you about some of our favorite things...


First we had fun visiting the Poinsettia Pathway. Next, I started skipping down Candy Cane Lane with happiness. All of the lights are really awesome and the music helped make it feel so magical!



Look how pretty all of the lights are on the trees! We remember seeing people starting to hang lights up months ago getting ready for this spectacular event.



We visited two of Santa's reindeer at the Reindeer Woods. After that we both got a delicious cup of hot chocolate to enjoy for the rest of our fabulous journey.



We absolutely loved the nativity scene before entering the new Light of the World Garden. Glowing lanterns and peaceful music accompany this space featuring 35 monument- sized bronze sculptures depicting scenes of Jesus Christ.


Another one of our favorite stops was at S'mores Village. It is filled with intimate fireplaces where families can make their own s'mores.

There are some fabulous games for the family to play in this area as well. We had fun looking inside the cute little gift shop. The Waffle Wonderland featured some yummy must try treats.



Snowflake Lane lead us to a giant snowman that had cool blue lights going up and down the trees! We felt like little kids again singing Frosty the snowman as we looked up with wondrous eyes at the brilliant snowman!


My hubby and I give this fantastic experience a huge thumbs up! We loved it and plan on making it a new yearly tradition. It was a wonderful, romantic evening!

Ticket prices and other details for the event can be found at: thanksgivingpoint.org/events/luminaria. (*Note: Luminaria is a timed ticketed event each evening.) #Luminaria2016
