Let's Mingle on Monday with "Life of Meg"

Hello Mingle Monday!

For a couple of weeks now I have been blog hopping with "Life of Meg".  I have met some really nice and funny people. I just wanted to give a shout out to Meg! "Hi Meg - thanks for having this Blog Hop!"

Come join us and meet new people and possibly have new followers.

Today's question: What would you do if you got a snow day?

If I had a snow day, I would take my family to the mountains to ski and have hot cocoa. Well, I would have a nice hot cappuccino :o)

Have a great week everyone! Stay warm out there :o)

The Year of the Rabbit

Happy New Year everyone! It's a wrap! While watching The Rose Parade this morning, I was packing away my Christmas decorations. Boy~ does it feel good to have everything in its place again. 

Now it's time to purge, purge, purge for the New Year! I am hoping that I'm not the only person cleaning on New Years day.  Chinese New Year is now approaching us on February 3, 2011.  I have this terrible superstition that my house needs to be clean and uncluttered before  February 3rd or I will not have good luck upon us for the New Year. When does everyone else start their purging? Is it the beginning of the new year or is it in the Spring?

My older daughter is especially excited for this year because she was born under the Year of the Rabbit. This is her 2nd Year of the Rabbit and you've guessed it, she will be twelve this year. The best thing about celebrating Chinese New Year is teaching my girls the importance of culture.
