Veggie Tales Review and Giveaway

I am ecstatic to be reviewing the newest Veggie Tales DVD.  My kids said I really must have "arrived" as a reviewer to get to do Veggie Tales!!

Pigs moving in next-door to the Veggies?  Why, yes, the Three Little Pigs, to be exact.  The Little House That Stood combines parables, nursery rhymes, and all of our favorite characters - what's not to love?!

When the Three Little Pigs roll into Cabbageville looking to build some new houses, they meet one builder with a plan and two without a clue! Larry builds with hay, Mr. Lunt with bricks, but only Bob builds his houses on a firm foundation - following the wise plans from the Master Builder's Handbook! Will the Little Piggies make the right choices when it comes to building their houses - and their lives - on solid ground? Find out in this parable that shows kids when they follow God's blueprints, they can stand strong when the storms come! 
We watched this movie as a family for our "pizza and a movie night" tonight, and we all loved the story of the wise and foolish builders, Veggie-style.  Hay, bricks, or wood?  "Fuhgeddaboudit!"  The foundation is what counts, in buildings and in lives.  If you love Veggies, you must check out the newest story, The Little House That Stood, to be released this coming Tuesday, March 5.

The second story on the DVD combines a number of nursery rhymes in a delightfully silly way that only Veggie Tales can.  I do have to say that I miss the music from the older movies.  In Veggie Tales' first decade, Bob's and Larry's music was on my regular playlist; I listened to it all the time.  The sad part about this is that for the first six years of Veggie Tales' first decade, I had no children!  Never fear, though, there is still a Silly Song from Larry, lots of songs, and lots of fun with all our Veggie friends!

I know, I know, you just can't stand any more good news, but I've got some for you anyway.  We're having a Veggie DVD Giveaway!  Just comment here or on my Facebook page before March 8 to be entered into the drawing for your own copy of The Little House That Stood!
