GIVEAWAY: The Snowman and The Snowdog DVD! -CLOSED-


Winner

I loved The Snowman so I was excited to watch The Snowman & The Snowdog
with my family. First of all the music is soooo beautiful!  There is no dialogue and yet the story is so touching.  My kids were mesmerized the entire time.  We got a little snow the other day and my son went out in his pajamas and gloves to make a Snowman and a Snowdog…lol  This show is definitely on our holiday tradition list now.  I don't know how they did it, but they made a sequel that is just as good as the original!

About the DVD:
When a young boy and his mother move to a new home, the boy discovers a secret box hidden under the floorboards of his bedroom. In the box, he finds a hat, scarf, some lumps of coal and a shriveled tangerine – it’s a snowman-making kit! Later that day it starts to snow. The boy builds a snowman, and with a little spare snow left over, a Snowdog. That night they come to life and take him on a wonderful adventure. As dawn breaks they fly home, but before the boy returns to bed a magical surprise awaits him… 

Raymond Briggs’ iconic children’s book The Snowman follows the wonderful adventures of a young boy and the remarkable Snowman he creates. Adapted for the screen in 1982, the Oscar-nominated film has enchanted generations of children. On the 30th anniversary of the original film, Briggs has given his blessing to this brand-new sequel. The magic is about to begin all over again, this time with a new set of friends.

You can find The Snowman & The Snowdog on Amazon for $9.99 or you can get it at Barnes and Noble.

One reader will win The Snowman and The Snowdog DVD! US only a Rafflecopter giveaway

This movie is a Christmas tradition at my mom's house. She plays the soundtrack while the tree is being decorated and the movie is usually on during the entire Christmas season. I am actually shocked that I do not already have a copy of this movie.

The puppy looks so cute. My nieces love the movie "A Stranger In The Woods," which is also about a snowman. I bet they would love this one too.

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!
