VeggieTales Noah’s Ark Review & Giveaway

February 5, 2015 By · 17 Comments


As an official Family Christian Blogger, I received a copy of the Noah’s Ark VeggieTales Movie to review.  All opinions/pictures are my own. 

I have been watching VeggieTales since SoccerBoy was 5 years old, he’s turning 18 at the end of March if that tells you anything. This has been one of the staples in my house even when I wasn’t attending church. I love the little stories they tell and how they relate to the bible. I was lucky enough to be asked to review the screener of VeggieTales Noah’s Ark and with all the recent Noah’s Ark movies that have come out in theater I had to see the VeggieTale version. (yes I knew it would have some dramatization, I mean there aren’t too many veggies that can talk) We have watched it as a family twice and today Nicoli (20 months old) is watching it as I type this. I love the fact that all my kids still love it (it teaches a message every time) and will sing the silly songs together.

About Noah’s Ark:

Noah and his family together with a zoo full of animals take an adventure aboard an orange slice ark. After 40 days and nights of rain, everyone’s faith has been tested, and they’re ready to jump ship. Will they chart a new course, or will they remember to trust God’s promises?

This was all about “God’s Plan” and how you must listen to it even when you think it might be crazy. I dno’t know how many of you out there question what he asks of you but I have. It starts right off with Noah’s son, Shem and his wife talking about starting their home and family on a bike ride, until they see the property and that Noah is up to something. They begin seeing 2 of every animal and as they get closer to the orange grove there is a giant boat (the Ark) in the middle of it. First, let me tell you the characters have changed slightly, by that I only mean the coloring and Bob the Tomato is thinner, these were a few things my kids noticed.

Little A (age 7) loved God’s promise with the rainbow because it was so beautiful and meant he’d never do it again.

Electric Dog Fence Benefits & a Giveaway

January 17, 2015 By · 5 Comments

I am only posting this in an effort to help some of ya’ll win some Amazon cash. How many of you could use $50 Amazon Gift cards? I don’t know about you but I would love to win an amazon gift card. So for this giveaway we are talking about the four benefits of installing an electric dog fence. How many of you have one?


I don’t own a dog, actually I currently do not have any pets. But I grew up with dogs and some days I wish we had something like this. Why? I had a number of dogs growing up but I remember a time we had just moved into a new city and our three dogs got out. If we had an electric fence it probably never would have happened. They pushed open the gate and ran, only one came back that first night but the other two would take much longer. After a week one of the other two came back but we would not see the third dog, my favorite one, for almost 6 months and by the time we did he ended up with mange.

1.  It keeps the dogs in.

2. It can be cheaper than a traditional fence. Traditional fences can go from hundreds to thousands while an electric fence can be as low as $300.

3.  It can be added on without having to buy a whole lot of materials.

4.  Makes it easier for you to keep a nice yard. Just think you’ll no longer have to worry about weed eatting all that grass that grows into the fence.

LG TV Giveaway

November 5, 2014 By · 23 Comments

Disclosure: This giveaway is only being hosted here, I am in no way responsible for delivering the prize.


Do you need a new TV? How would you feel towards an LG TV? With Thanksgiving and Christmas upon us there are many shows coming out that would look great on an LG TV. Every year I love sitting in the living room and gathering up with the kids watching Christmas movies. It doesn’t matter what month it is either, but the closer we get to Christmas the better. Last year we watched at least 35 Christmas movies, by this I don’t just mean your regular Christmas movies either. We’d go on Netflix and type it in and watch whatever (minus a few), rented Christmas Cartoons and reviewed Christmas romantic type of shows.

KitchenAid Mixer Group Giveaway

November 4, 2014 By · 13 Comments

Disclosure: This is a group giveaway, there is no compensation for this on my part. The Life of a Home Mom is only hosting it, I am not responsible for getting the prize to the winner. 


My husband and kids recently asked me what I wanted for my birthday (which is November 30th) and Christmas. One of the things on my list was this Mixer. I told them, “You know the mixer your aunt has?” Nods were given, “That’s the one I want, the one she makes her awesome mashed potatoes with.” Sure I have the small mixer you hold in your hands but I want the heavy duty kind. The kitchenaid mixer, I mean I have 5 kids and a very large family and with the holidays this would definitely be a time saver. I’m tired of mixing and mixing or mashing. Now is your chance to win this beautiful mixer. Want it? Enter by filling out the widget below.

With the holidays so close and getting closer every day some of us are scrambling to figure out a way to make some more money for Christmas. Wouldn’t an Amazon Gift Card be great? I’m working with a group of bloggers for this giveaway, I’m just hosting it so hope you have fun and if you win come back and let me know. To spread the thanks, some of our favorite bloggers are participating in this giveaway which means you have even more ways to enter! Make sure you check out all of the entries and give them some love! For a full list of participating bloggers, please look below the widget.

November to me means a time when family gathers around, being thankful, shops and celebrates milestones. One of my sisters’ birthdays is later this month, as well as mine so lots of celebrating to do. Thanksgiving means lots of recipes popping up online and food to be served, but it also means I have to be edgy on everything served at the table as my oldest is allergic to Turkey. November is a time to begin or end your Christmas shopping, for me it’ll be the beginning. I want to take a moment to thank all of my readers at The Life of a Home Mom for your continuous support.
