Giveaway! Muppets: The Green Album

Muppet Mania is back! And we want to share the smiles, rainbows and the love of being green with our Family Sponge community. Kermit the Frog and his crew are coming out with a new movie starring Jason Segel (“How I Met Your Mother,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall”), Amy Adams (“The Fighter,” “Julie & Julia,” “Enchanted”) and Chris Cooper (“Adaptation,” “The Bourne Idenity”). The Muppets movie hits theaters November 23, so this is a perfect family-friendly movie to see during the Thanksgiving holiday.

If you are nostalgic and enjoy rediscovering your childhood youth, then what you are missing from your music library right now is MUPPETS: THE GREEN ALBUM. It covers all of the Muppet classics that you grew up singing and dancing to. Here are a few lyrics of the Rainbow Connection song reinterpreted by Weezer featuring Hayley Williams:

Who said that every wish would be heard
and answered when wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that and someone believed it.
Look what it’s done so far.
What’s so amazing that keeps us star gazing
and what do we think we might see?
Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection.
The lovers, the dreamers and me.

    My favorite memories of Thanksgiving are spending it with my family and especially my extended family. I give thanks for that. I remember when my grandparents and uncle would come from New York to California. I miss that. Okay and all of the delicious food!!

    I love that every Thanksgiving uses all 4 days to spend time with both sides of our families. We tend to slow things down a bit and play a lot more games, have a lot of time lounging on the couch and of course, chowing down 🙂

    My favorite memory of Thanksgiving was participating in cooking a huge meal with my mom who didn’t cook too often and then getting to eat it with the rest of our crazy family. And it was always followed with a big family walk (so we could eat some more!).

    I used to love helping my grandfather cook sweet potatoes and I loved that he would sneak me some pieces to eat 🙂

    I just love that it is the one holiday we all get together on. After the big meal and football game, the kids curl up and watch movies, play games, and eat to much pie, while the adults get involved in heated, all night, card games!

    my favorite tradition is seeing a movie with my family after we eat. it just gives us something else to do, and it’s fun.

  8. Melissa November 14, 2011 at 9:03 pm #

    Cooking all our families traditional recipes with several generations is my favorite part of Thanksgiving. Love seeing our family grow every year. It’s so wonderful.

    The day after Thanksgiving we all get together to cut down my parent’s Christmas tree after a good breakfast! It’s one of my favorite traditions!

    I love when my father-in-law tries to carve the turkey with an electric knife by cutting through the bones. He has passed the knife to me, but since I moved to Florida I’m sure he is going to carve the turkey himself and lose a finger.

    I love getting to break the turkey’s “wishbone” – if you get the bigger side, your wish comes true!

    My favorite Thanksgiving memory is the year my mom “volunteered” me to cook…and it turned out great!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    drinking coffee with my grandfather before Thanksgiving dinner – I used to love that

    You know, we’ve never had many Thanksgiving traditions besides enjoying the Parade and coloring the yearly turkey in the newspaper 🙂

    One of my favorite Thanksgiving memories was last year, when I was lucky enough to have my daughter here, as my personal sous chef, and passing down recipes and techniques with her. I’ll miss that this year.

  26. Kelaiah Goertzen November 18, 2011 at 4:22 pm #

    My favourite thanksgiving tradition is when we all are about to give one another gifts to show our thankfullness and we have this prayer telling God how thankful we are for one another and just build one another up. 🙂 I love that about my family.

  27. family sponge November 21, 2011 at 1:13 am #

    These are great Thanksgiving memories and traditions. Thank you all for sharing!

  28. Melissa November 21, 2011 at 4:19 pm #

    I love going around the table and talking about what we’re all thankful for. It reminds me not to take anything for granted!

    My childhood Thanksgiving memories include good food- my Dad makes the best homemade mashed potatoes and gravy and the day after he would make turkey soup. I would watch the Pippi Longstocking movies on tv.
    Now that I am married and have a family, our tradition is to share what we are thankful for before we enjoy our meal together. In fact, we just did that last night since my husband works on Thanksgiving we feasted last night.

  31. Tee November 24, 2011 at 12:58 pm #

    Ha! Opening up a can of jellied cranberry sauce is a tradition for us! Thanksgiving isn’t quite the same without that glob of cranberry goodness. The lines from the can bring back fun memories of my childhood Thanksgiving dinners!

    One of my favorite Thanksgiving family traditions is sharing what we are thankful for at the dinner table. It’s a great way of hearing what kind of a year we’ve all had and giving thanks to the Lord. I plan on continuing this tradition with my kids and family.

    Hands down, my favorite Thanksgiving memory has been helping my grandmother make her absolutely delicious macaroni & cheese. At a young age I would sit & watch her in the kitchen as she prepared her dish. With age she allowed me to help her here & there and finally at age 18 she gave me the secret family recipe! This year I did not spend Thanksgiving with my family, but they were with me in spirit as I prepared the mac & cheese for my holiday feast. It turned out great! Still needs perfecting but with God’s grace & blessing there will be plenty of years to practice and eventually pass down the recipe to my little angel Aubrey.
