1. Ben and I both work in the youth program in our church, so one Saturday we got to go sledding with both the Young Men and Young Women. It was seriously so much fun! We got to the hill early enough that we had the whole place to ourselves for about an hour and a half. I had bought my first pair of snow pants for the occasion, and let me tell you..they are awesome!! They were overall snow pants, and I felt just like a lumberjack. I fell plenty of times and didn't get wet at all! Of course Ben had a great time, because he really is just a kid at heart and he loves spending time with the youth. Here we are:
|Before crashing and burning multiple times!|
|Going down together..|
|And racing, because we turn everything into a competition. I won, btw.|
2. As part of our Young Women's program, we had our New Beginnings in January (i.e. the kickstart to the new year, we introduce the new young women's theme...for those of you non-mormons, or mormon's who just forgot what that was.) Our New Beginnings this year was about accentuating our beauty through modesty. I had seen something on Pinterest (of course) where a woman made homemade fortune cookies and put fortunes in there with quotes about beauty. So I thought, I can bake...I can do this...yay me! Well, this was how they turned out:
Pretty impressive, right? Haha, that was a serious #pinterestfail. At least the activity still turned out great!
Nothing else major went on in January, other than freezing our butts off because it was one of the coldest and snowiest winters we've had in a long time.
Coming Soon: February!
But for now, I need to go watch Tangled for the thousandth time.
