Gv and I had to recently weed out our story Bible collection. We had so many, we were up to reading 3 a day (of the same story) just to get through them all in a year!

But when I saw the adorable cover of this book, I knew we'd just have to figure out a way to make room for one more!

My Snapshots

What have we been up to this past month? Take a look and see:

Gosh, jeepers, where did this month go? I mean, I know it's short, but come on -- how can it be over already?

G and I had told Gv she could paint her nails for the first time as a special reward for a goal she'd been working really hard toward. She said she wanted to wait until Grammy could do it, and it was all very exciting:


She was waffling between fire-engine red (her favorite color) and sparkly silver in the store. Grammy and I steered her towards the more modest silver color...


The state fair is a pretty big deal around here and we always have loads of fun going together as a family, but with me stuck on the ice all weekend, G and I decided to sit this year out.

Gv, however, was still jazzed and anxious to proudly wear her 4-H shirt there, so we sent her off with the cousins for probably what was her best day ever at the fair:


She was so excited to eat this cookie that was as big as her head!

They ate probably everything that was up for sale, saw all the animals, made all the crafts, watched the pig races and even came home with a trophy from the demolition derby! 

She just might not want to go with us ever again!


And since the state fair is such a big deal in these parts, kids usually get a day off school for "Fair Day." Normally, teachers have to work, but this year, G got the day off, too.

But instead of spending it at the fair, we finally made it to our closest National Park Unit for a family day, where Gv earned another Jr. Ranger badge:




Finally, our rink hosted a figure skating competition last weekend. This was Gv's first time competing and...


...she not only skated her heart out, but came home with a gold medal, as well!

"Though America is home to only 4% of the world's population, we house more than 20% of its prisoners. Recidivism–the tendency of a criminal to re-offend—is out of control. The Restoration Series tells the story of men and women who have experienced The Academy, a revolutionary in-prison program that is combating incarceration and recidivism head on."

The moment I read those words about this 5-part documentary series, I knew I wanted to support this important work being done.

I've mentioned the Prison Fellowship ministry before and how their Angel Tree program is a great way to give to others during the holidays, but the group is now presenting The Restoration Series: Jonathan's Walk, which follows one man as he re-enters his community after 15 years in prison.

My Snapshots

What have we been up to this past month? Take a look and see:

We had a pretty exciting holiday and took a little trip to introduce Gv to a few famous sites, Christmas markets, and amazing art:

Gv had wanted to see this landmark just as much as Mt. Rushmore. She was not disappointed!

We still made it to church on Christmas Day!
'

Gv was so excited to see snow for the first time in the Swiss Alps.

We spent a week here in Rome, getting to see all of G's favorite spots from when he lived here.

...and we managed to make it to church on New Year's Day, too!


There was plenty of January left by the time we returned, but to be honest, the rest of the month was spent trying desperately to force ourselves back into our routine, when what we really wanted to be doing was still traipsing across Europe eating delicious food!
