GIVEAWAY: Family Talk2 and Lumps, the Elf Coal Game! (US) -CLOSED-


Now that the cold is settling in it is time to bring out the games! I have 2 great ideas for you from Continuum Games. They have family friendly games as well as seasonal games.

The first game is Family Talk2, a big hit around here. It is a fun and portable way to get your family talking. I have a 4 year old who LOVES to share what is on his mind and we love to hear what he is thinking, this is just a perfect way to get beyond the every day questions of how was school and what did you do at your friends home.

Family Talk2 includes 100 conversation cards that range from "where did your parents go on their honeymoon?" to "who is the best joke teller in your family?" to "what is the scariest thing that has ever happened to you?" Some of the questions were a little over my 4 year old's head but they were easy to skip over or adjust the question for his age. I am sure this will be a game we will use for a long time in our family.

The second game is Lumps, the Elf Coal Game, which is perfect for this time of year! The Lumps Legend begins when children around the world have been so good the past few years that the coal in the North Pole is piling up. Puzzled by what to do, the Elves created a new game that uses the lumps of coal, which come in all different shapes and sizes.

The game is played by rolling the dice, and adding the points. You try and score the most points in three rolls by rolling pairs of the same number. If you roll a pair of 2's, you score 2 points or if you roll a pair of 10's, you score 10 points. However, if you roll 3 5's you score 10, (the first pair count as 1, and if a third or more dice is rolled you add each additional dice.) A really fun and easily played game for our family. Again, my 4 year old loved it, mainly just because he could roll his dice over and over again, we did the counting for him. My husband who isn't too into games even played it 2 nights in a row with us. It comes in a cute little stocking, which travels easy and makes it even more festive!

Lumps, the Elf Coal game is available at Hallmark Gold Crown Stores, Books-A-Million, Go! Games, and 100's of specialty toy stores in the US.  Or along with Family Talk2 you can purchase the games at and also get a 15% discount by using the code: funforallages.

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!

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…
