Real Steel Movie DVD + Blue-Ray Giveaway

7:33 PM Posted by CalgaryDaddy

  I love watching cool family movies and I was really intrigued when I saw the previews for the Dreamworks movie, Real Steel ( starring Hugh Jackman) as it is rare that Hollywood releases movies that are targeted more towards the "boys" in the family!  Real Steel is coming out in stores on a DVD, Blue-Ray Combo package on January 24, 2012 and I cannot wait to see this movie.

 In advance of its release, I have been fortunate enough to be able to host a giveaway for this movie on! I have three copies to give away to my readers in this cool contest!

Brief Synopsis:

The family action-adventure is set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech. Charlie Kenton, played by Hugh Jackman, is a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (played by Canadian actor Dokota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.

Here is the trailer to this cool movie!

A Day Without Food In Support of Brown Bagging For Calgary's Kids

11:43 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy

Many of you know that I am a proud kitchen volunteer and board member for Brown Bagging For Calgary's Kids ( BB4CK) and I am humbled every Monday morning that I get to help make lunches for needy Calgary school children. Even though I have been doing this for over two years, I still am moved when I try to imagine that there are kids in our city that go hungry everyday. When I talk to people about what BB4CK does, they are also shocked that there are thousands of kids that go without food in a rich city like Calgary and they always are looking for ways to help.

As part of BB4CK's tenth anniversary, the organization has laid out many different ways the public can get involved. This month, we have challenged Calgarians to "go a day without food" on January 24 and share their thoughts with everyone. While I understand that it may not be feasible to go a whole day with out food, many people have stated that they want to get involved by giving up one meal, their favorite snack or will attempt to go without something that is important to them for the day. What can you give up?

Here are my thoughts this morning....

If you would like to give it a shot, be sure to tweet (@brownbaggingit #bb4ck10for10 ) or share your thoughts on the Facebook page at ( The main website is )

Happy 2nd Birthday Kyron!

9:54 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy

 I cannot believe that my son Kyron is two years old.  It just seems like yesterday that our little Mon-Ky came into our world and shook it upside down!  Kyron truly is a blessing and we have cherished every day with him.  He has turned out to be quite the funny boy and really is a social butterfly! 

 Here is a quick video from his first days....

We really could not imagine our life without him and he brings so much joy to our lives.

Happy 2nd Birthday Kyron!

( Thanks to everyone for following along with our journey on the blog!)
