We also got many compliments on how well the boys behaved. "Oh, they have to learn how to behave and sit still," I'd say with a smile. "An Amish church service is three hours long!"

  1. I'm not sure if I'd enjoy Plain Faith or not, although it does sound unusual. I'll have to read more about it before deciding.

  5. It's hard enough for a child to sit through a normal church length church service. I know, my Mommom was a minister. Love her tons, but she could talk forever. :-) But 3 hours? You're going to get a lot of squirmy butts!

  9. I just found myself a book on Amish community last week! When I told my kids that Amish services were 3 and almost half a day long they just about died....not sure if I should be concerned or tickled by their reaction ha ha ha XD

  15. Three hours long??? I could never sit in church that long. My feet would hurt. I would want to giggle. No way for children to do it. Have fun reading this week.

AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 5TH!
RATED PG
86 minutes
AMAZON US

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

Book description:
The last thing Garrett, Duke of Calton, expects to find while tracking his sworn enemy is the delectable, mysterious Kate. This beautiful servant girl rouses a longing the battle-scarred ex-soldier had never

he seeks, he's convinced he's been betrayed.
Kate knows her duty to her family, yet how can she ignore Garrett's powerful pull on
