GIVEAWAY: Halloween Word World & Cat in the Hat DVDs! (US) -CLOSED-


Winner

NCircle Entertainment has 2 great DVDs out for Halloween!  Both I'm happy to add to my Halloween collection which used to only consist of It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown! :)
First is Word World: Kooky Spooky Halloween
A Kooky Spooky Halloween:
The WordFriends get their share of scares the night  before Halloween, when Pig sleep walks and everyone thinks he's a ghost!
Sheep's Halloween Costume:
Sheep is making herself a super special fairy costume to wear for the big Halloween party.  But what will she do when her WordFriends need pieces of her costume for their own use?

Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!: Tricks and Treats
A new spooky adventure this DVD brings,
with The Cat, Nick and Sally, Fish and the Things.
Meet the eeriest critters you have ever seen,
arrived just in time for this Halloween!
There'll be lots of tricks and, of course lots of treats,
to share with the animal friends you will meet!
There's a coconut crab, spider monkeys and bats,
and plenty more fun with The Cat in the Hat!


My kids love Word World and Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! so these were an easy sell.  I'm always impressed with the objects they make look like words and I always end up learning something from the Cat. :)  It's also nice to have some non-scary, pure fun shows to watch for Halloween.

The DVDs are approx. 30 minutes long and they are around $6 at many retailers near you or at NCircle Entertainment.

That they really educate! We watch most of these on PBS, and my 4 year old came up to me today and told me that when fruit goes bad and gets all rotten, that's called "decay". She got that from Sid the Science Kid!

Thanks for the giveaway, my daughter loves both of these shows!

Great site for kids and that one will keep them busy for a long time. Games, funny pictures, and even educate them while making it fun. Love the matching game. Stimulates the mind.

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!
