Family Time Calendar: Family Video Night: The Snowman

If you've never experienced this wonderful animated movie, you're in for a real treat! Imaginative, charming and relaxing (there are no words -- only music), it's the perfect choice for winding down on a winter's night. Based on Raymond Briggs's book, this visual tale of a young boy's adventures with the snowman he built is sure to delight parents and kids.

As you watch, have a totally "cool" dinner as well. As the movie's characters discover, the stove and oven are no place for a cold-loving snowman to be near. We think maybe that should go for relaxation-seeking moms tonight too. So serve everyone plates of cold roast chicken (pick up a precooked one from the market on the way home this afternoon) and fresh veggies with dip; follow up with sorbet and some frozen hot chocolate -- you can order the world-famous Serendipity 3 version right online!
