this family, this year, is a highlight. this is Jenny Norton’s family. there is a whole mess of things to say here, but three words: God is good. and gracious. and He is working. that was more than three.

of course there were many other highlights that didn’t make it on camera…those are always the best highlights anyways.

so, is it January? cause it’s okay with me if we do it allllll over again.
