.baby, it's cold outside. | THE KLACKNERS


.baby, it's cold outside.

I'd been looking forward to this past weekend for a very long time.  Why?  Because Narnia came out this weekend!  On Sunday I traveled with my family over the river and through the woods to see this wonderful movie.  I know some of you who are reading my blog have never read the books, or you may have read one of them.  I grew up having them read to me, reading them myself, listening to them on tape, and watching the BBC versions.  Growing up, Narnia is what I dreamed about.  It's where I longed to be.  The story draws me in, captures all my attention, and tugs at the yearning in my heart for something more.  I was as excited as a three year old on Christmas morning for this movie.  I saw it. I laughed. I cried.  I didn't want to leave.  I wanted to follow Reepicheep into Aslan's country, but I know I have things to do here first.

Narnia was not the only exciting part of my weekend.  We got snow!!  
I know it wasn't a ton, but we take what snow we can get around these parts.  Snow is probably my favorite thing the whole world.  I love watching it fall.  I love how it blankets the ground.  I love watching it swirl around on the road.  I love how beautiful it is.  Snow is completely enchanting.  

My least favorite part of this weekend?  I came down with this deathly sickness known as the winter cold.  I has the sniffles.  I can't breathe and my nose is like an annoying dripping water faucet.

Too much information?  

I'm sorry.

It must be the nyquil.

Since I'm getting to the point where I can no longer string sentences together, this would be a good time for a December countdown.

In 3 days: I will be traveling to Nashville for the Andrew Peterson Christmas concert at the Ryman.  This has become my favorite Christmas tradition.  AND I get to see Miss Jodie Leeka!! 

In 4 days: I'm going back to the city of orange to visit Miss Natalie Wright!

In 7 days: Drew is coming home for Christmas!  He'll only be home for a week, but we'll make the most of it.

In 12 daysCHRISTMAS!!  Oh snap.

In 18 days: New Year's Eve.  Better get the new year's resolutions ready.

That's all for now folks.  That nyquil is really starting to get to me.  I better stop now before I say something that will ruin your life.


Oh dear.  I don't think I was supposed to tell you that.
