Big things are just around the corner! First, this Saturday July 30th, it’s National Friendship Day. Then, on August 2nd, the smash hit RIO releases to Blue-ray and DVD.

VeggieTales Live! Sing Yourself Silly DVD {Giveaway}

VeggieTales Live! Sing Yourself SillyThis giveaway will end Friday, May 20th at 11:59pm EST.

My kids and I are big fans of VeggieTales, and we were so sad that their Live! Show wasn’t closer to us. We really wanted to see it.

Well, now, we don’t have to be sad anymore. In fact, we can sing ourselves silly with the VeggieTales Live! Sing Yourself Silly DVD!

Here’s a brief synopsis:

Set to be released June 7, 2011, VeggieTales Live! Sing Yourself Silly features Bob, Larry, and the whole veggie crew taking to the stage with the silliest Silly Song Countdown ever! This high energy song and dance spectacular takes silliness to a whole new level! But, sometimes silliness just isn’t enough. Archibald Asparagus prefers songs with meaning, Mr. Lunt wants to sing about food, and Jimmy and Jerry are stuck in the 80s! But there’s only so much time… will the Veggies learn the importance of sharing so that the show can go on and everyone will be able to sing themselves silly??
