Veggie Tales Giveaway!

The awesome people over at Veggie Tales sent us the brand new DVD The League of Incredible Vegetables for us to review.

We love watching Veggie Tales and this new DVD did not disappoint.  My kids were so excited the day we got it in the mail. And could hardly wait to get it opened so we could watch it.

It was a bright and sunny day in Bumblyburg...until Dr. Flurry came to town.  This chillin' villain wants to freeze the whole fear!   It's a job to big for LarryBoy alone, so he turns to the "The League of Incredible Vegetables" to help save the town from Dr. Flurry's icy grip!  When it seems like they're all moments from the deep freeze, will the League remember to turn to One who is bigger than all our fears?  Includes a brand new theme song and music video from Grammy-nominated and Dove Award winning group, The Newsboys!

Lesson: Handling fear

Verse:  “When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You.” Psalm 56:3

Go watch the League Trailer online and get a taste of what is coming.  The DVD will be available in stores October 16. You can preorder it now from Veggie Tales.  

I highly recommend this new show.  My kids and I all enjoyed watching it.

Suger Plum age 6:  It was short but cool.  My favorite person was Vogue.  Her costume could change into anything.  You can be brave in tough things because God helps you.  I liked Thingamabob he's so cool because his belt can make arms and snowboards.

Tiger Boy age 4:  I liked it. They are incredible fighting the bad guy. You can be a superhero and trust God. My favorite hero was Thingamabob.

Veggie Tales is going to give one of you a copy of The League of Incredible Vegetables free.  All you have to do is leave me a comment saying what super power you wish you had.  

The giveaway will run through Sunday, October 14. I will then use to pick a winner.  Please make sure you leave a way for me to contact you. The giveaway is only open to US residents.
