Family Christian Dress Like A Veggie Event

veggie-tales-event2[1] copy

I cook with them quite often, but I must admit that I’ve never dressed like one. If the “you are what you eat” thing were true, I would most definitely be an edamame bean.

Or a cob of corn.

Or broccoli.

Honestly, I would probably be a new breed of veggie. Like a tomcobbrocame. This would be pronounced: Tom-cob-broc-ah-may. I’m so good at this that I could start a new language. Veggie language! YES!

Let’s move on shall we?

I know you guys are always looking for a good deal and also for a FREEBIE so I wanted to share this awesome contest happening through Family Christian stores! This may take some creativity so put your thinking caps on.

We are huge VeggieTales fans around here. I have been since I was young. I sound like an old fart referring to when I was young, don’t I? I’ve been a fan for a long time, but not too long if you know what I mean. ANYWHO! Family Christian is proud to announce their Dress Like A Veggie Event at ALL of their locations!

Here are the details:

When: Friday, October 31st 2014
Where: At ALL Family Christian Stores (find a location near you)
What to do: Dress like a veggie, take a photo in-store, post it to their Twitter and/or Instagram using the hastag #FCVeggies and tagging @FamilyChristian

The grand prize winner will receive a $250 gift card to Family Christian. FIVE runner ups will receive $50 appreciation certificates.

Your child does NOT have to dress like a VeggieTales veggie, just any veggie to qualify. You must have at least ONE child dressed up to enter the contest. 

And ALL children that stop by during the Dress Like A Veggie Event will receive small goodies!

You can find some great costume inspiration on this Pinterest board. I know you guys are creative so see what you can come up with! This is so exciting, I know my girls are going to be stoked.

They’ve always wanted to dress up like a cucumber you know…they just never knew it.

Free LEGO Minifig Holiday Card

This post brought to you by LEGO. All opinions are 100% mine.

Each year there are tons of cute little ways to personal holiday cards over the web. I'm sure you've seen the Elf Yourself thing that goes around each year. I still have our previous years saved and I watch them every now and then. I get a big giggle out of seeing a video of my 2 year old dressed in an elf suit and break dancing like a hip hop star.

Here's a new idea that was very timely this year. Addie has discovered that she loves LEGOs as of recently. We have even been going to LEGO club at our local library. I always expected LEGOs to be a boy thing, but Addie has proved that to be untrue. She absolutely loves creating little scenes with LEGOs. 

I came across this holiday card offer where you can make your very own family into a LEGO family and then send it around all of your social media pages to share with family and friends. I had a blast creating ours. You can choose everything from skin color to facial expressions and even the outfit. I played around with the facial expressions a bit until I found the ones just right for each of us. 

What do you think of my card? Pretty cute huh? The best part is that it's FREE!

You can head over and make your own LEGO Minifigure Family and share it with your friends and family this Christmas!

I woke up to a slew of them on Wednesday and seeing as how you are my frugal friends, I thought I’d share them with you!

  • You must provide your email address to receive the offers.
  • The offers have specific time periods and expiration dates. Some are ONLY available for use on your birthday and others are good for the entire week.
  • You will most likely need an id with you to prove who you are and your birth date.
