Yo Gabba Gabba LIVE! giveaway

Caden is totally obsessed with Yo Gabba Gabba, a television show for preschoolers. It is the ONLY show that he stops dead in his tracks to watch. (which is hard to do, when your a hyperactive one-year-old boy!) And yes, I'm that terrible mom that tivos it to use when I need to get things done around the house! :-D He's absolutely adorable when he watches it though... he bops around to the music and when he's not dancing he's clapping and laughing! So you can imagine how THRILLED I was when I found out that Yo Gabba Gabba Live is coming to Fort Wayne, IN!
