Happy Homemaker Monday - January 13, 2014

How was your weekend?  We took the girls to see Frozen again.  They loved it.  We cannot wait for it to come out on DVD.  We had also planned on taking the girls sledding, but the weather turned and we had snow and a cold wind blowing through, so we listened to music and danced instead.      

As I look outside my window...
Snow, snow and more snow!  

Right now I am...

Typing this while cuddling Miss C who has the sniffles and a cough.   


That I'm ready for winter to go and for it to be summer!

On my bedside table...
The Last Templar by Raymond Khoury

On my tv tonight...

As Time Goes By.  I have the DVD set and am looking forward to snuggling on my couch tonight, listening to the wind outside and watching this old favourite.

  1. We have no fur babies to cuddle with, but I love night time snuggles with my little boy. Hope you have a good week.

    1. Snuggles are always great. Enjoy your week. :)

  2. Lol, you can send some snow our way? It's like we never got out of Autumn over here (UK), rain, rain, rain. Although I certainly wouldn't like it quite so cold though. :) (I should be careful what I wish for!).

    I enjoyed my visit today. :)

    1. Hi Sarah. Thanks for visiting! I remember how dreary the rain can be in England. Roll on summer!

  3. I took my son's to see Frozen not realizing it was a princess movie. haha.
    BUT they loved Olaf the Snowman and some of the other characters so they were still happy and it wasn't a loss. :)
    Hope your daughter feels better soon. I am battling a cold myself as the rest of my family just got over being sick.
    Hope you have a great week ahead.

    1. I think the movie has something for everyone! Hope you feel better soon and have a wonderful week. :)
