REVIEW: Whistlefritz Spanish DVD's for Kids!


Whistlefritz is a fun way for kids to learn Spanish!  I haven't tried the whole program, but I got to show my kids La Fiesta de Fritzi and they loved it.  They think the mouse is funny and they really liked the teacher!   She talks slow and clearly...I learned some Spanish too.

My kids also enjoyed the songs.  They are catchy and easy to sing along to.  I have tried lots of Spanish DVDs for kids and this one is a new favorite.   I usually have the problem of one kid liking it and the other one won't.  Whistlefritz is a favorite for them both!!

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!
