January Highlights

January is gone. It's been a nice month and a great start to this new year. :)

--We have had snow on the ground for almost two months! We got some rain this month which melted some of the snow, but then it snowed again. At one point we had about 18 inches of snow on the ground! We have never had this much snow before!

--I started a book club! It's for girls 8-12. It's been really fun so far! :D

--I watched some good movies. Two of them were I'm Not Ashamed and Coffee Shop. I'm Not Ashamed is a movie that just came out on DVD and I just watched it a couple days ago. You can see my review of that movie here. Then Coffee Shop is a movie that I've been wanting to see for at least a year now. It finally came to DVD this month and I was super excited. :)

--I also came across this fun saying!

I was able to get quite a bit of reading done. I read:
The English Son by Wanda Brunstetter and Jean Brunstetter
Tea Rose by Erin Keeley Marshall
Last Wish by Valerie Howard
A Lancaster County Christmas by Suzanne Woods Fisher
The Stubborn Father by Wanda Brunstetter and Jean Brunstetter
The Betrayed FiancĂ©e by Wanda Brunstetter and Jean Brunstetter
Sandy Toes by Robin Jones Gunn
The Missing Will by Wanda Brunstetter and Jean Brunstetter
The Angel of Forest Hill by Cindy Woodsmall
The Divided Family by Wanda Brunstetter and Jean Brunstetter
The Selfless Act by Wanda Brunstetter and Jean Brunstetter
Where Tree Tops Glisten by Tricia Goyer, Sarah Sundin, and Cara Putman
The Disappearing Stranger by Lois Walfrid Johnson
Love Finds You in Calico, California by Elizabeth Ludwig
The Red Geranium by Janette Oke

All of these books were so good! I can't believe how much I read! Although a couple of the books I started last month and just finished them this month and some of the books weren't that big, but still. :)

I have some really super fun blog posts coming up in February, so please check back!! :)

  2. So much snow!! But if it is going to snow, I hope it snows a lot so you can play in it and take awesome pictures like you did :)
    Those look like good movies! I'll have to check them out some time.

    1. Yes, we’ve been getting a bunch of snow. Oh yes, if it’s going to snow it’s nice if it’s enough to have some fun with. ;)
      Both movies were great! You should check them out sometime. :)

  3. Ah I love the snow! Now the cold... that's a different thing all together. But snow can be very fun sometimes. Wow you did read a lot of books this month. That's awesome! Can't wait to see what's coming this month :)

    1. I love snow too! Yeah, the cold part isn’t always too fun, but if there’s snow then the cold is usually worth it for me. ;)
      I’m happy with the reading I got done! They were all great books. =)
      I can’t wait to do those fun posts I mentioned! :D

  4. Wow that's a lot of snow! (at lest for someone who get 0 amount of snow) Sounds like a fun month!

    1. Yes, we've definitely gotten a lot of snow this winter. Oh, that's too bad that you don't get snow.
