"They should have a room ready for your grandfather soon, Miss Bontrager."
"I'm right here," Grosdaadi grumped. "Don't talk about me like I'm not."

  1. Ah yes, it's not nice to talk about someone as if they aren't there.

  2. Nobody wants to be ignored! It drive me crazy when I see someone talking as if an older person isn't there or isn't capable of hearing or understanding what's being said.
    I think I'd enjoy these Amish novellas.

  7. I like grandfather. I hate when people talk about me like I'm not there and he's at least forcing them to acknowledge him.

  8. I like books about gardens. I like to read about the Amish too. I'm glad the old guy took up for himself.

Dr. Suess' The Grinch (With #Giveaway)

AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 5TH!
RATED PG
86 minutes
AMAZON US

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

Giveaway: A Touch Of Scandal

Book description:
The last thing Garrett, Duke of Calton, expects to find while tracking his sworn enemy is the delectable, mysterious Kate. This beautiful servant girl rouses a longing the battle-scarred ex-soldier had never

he seeks, he's convinced he's been betrayed.
Kate knows her duty to her family, yet how can she ignore Garrett's powerful pull on
