GIVEAWAY: Thomas & Friends: Day of the Diesels - The Movie! (US) -CLOSED-

 
Winner

I thought it was funny that my daughter didn't immediately want to watch Thomas & Friends: Day of the Diesels.  My son did though so she sat down, watched it and now she asks for this movie repeatedly!  I like this movie too.  It has a fun, exciting story that has more of a "movie" feel than most children's movies.  The characters are interesting and relatable.  My children also have more of an interest in trains now. :)  This was my first time seeing a Thomas & Friends movie and I will now be looking into others.

DVD Synopsis from Website:
The Steamies and the Diesels are in for an action-packed movie adventure in this Thomas & Friends Day of the Diesels DVD. There's a huge fire on Sodor and two new firefighting engines – Flynn and Belle – show up to lend a helping hand. When Thomas starts spending all of his time with Sodor's newest heroes, Percy is drawn to the Dieselworks, where he is made to feel special by the master of mischief himself. Diesel 10 has a master plan to take over the Steamworks and the Steam Team is forced to come up with unique ways of dealing with all the mischief.

Thomas & Friends: Day of the Diesels -The Movie is 58 minutes long, has great bonus features and sells for $19.99.

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)



Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
