It's time for VeggieTales... And a giveaway!


Have you ever seen the VeggieTales videos?  They've been around for awhile, because my kids watched them when they were younger.  They were always a family favorite - made more so because the main characters were Bob the tomato and Larry the cucumber, and my husband and his brother are also Bob and Larry.  The kids always thought that was funny.  The kids in our church always enjoyed them too.  When I played piano for the Wednesday night group Connie's grandson always asked to sing one of the VeggieTales songs.
Anyway - the videos are always cute and they always leave the kids with a good Biblical lesson.  They may be for kids, but Bob and I like to watch them too.
There is a new VeggieTales video being released on March 5.  It's called VeggieTales: The Little House that Stood.
Here's a little preview:



About The Little House That Stood
When the Three Little Pigs roll into Cabbageville looking to build some new houses, they meet one builder with a plan and two without a clue! Larry builds with hay, Mr. Lunt with bricks, but only Bob builds his houses on a firm foundation - following the wise plans from the Master Builder's Handbook! Will the Little Piggies make the right choices when it comes to building their houses - and their lives - on solid ground? Find out in this parable that shows kids when they follow God's blueprints, they can stand strong when the storms come! 

As I said above, we are long time VeggieTales fans. We didn't think this one was quite as good as some of the older ones.  It has the usual story with a moral, silly songs and funny jokes.  We just didn't think the story was as easy to follow or the humor quite as good.  However - I'm sure you (or your kids or grandkids) would still enjoy it!
You can order it online here, or find it at your local Christian book store.
You could also win it!  The makers of this video have offered one DVD to be given to one of my readers.  To enter, just leave a comment letting me know if you've ever seen VeggieTales before.  I'll draw a winner on Thursday night.

I am proud to say I have seen every VeggieTale movie up to this point, and always look forward to the next one that comes out. VeggieTales was/is such a great idea for little kids and are great family movies!

My niece's first word was "Bob" - she loves VeggieTales!! I enjoy it too :)

Good luck to the winner on Thursday....Since it's just the two of us, I would think it quite unfair for me to even enter...someone with a family should enjoy this more than Bud and I. [not that I wouldn't enjoy it ---but families should have it.]

Mari? That photo below, with the child's hand and great grand mother's hand just melts my heart!!! It's absolutely heart melting.

Oh girl we love VeggieTales at our house. Audrey has the Junior's Bedtime Songs CD and we have been known to laugh so hard listening while driving, we almost went off the road. So count me in.
