I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and have fully recovered from any traveling you had to do.
We visited my family for Christmas this year. My sister got engaged (yay!) and we switched things up a bit this year and opened gifts on Christmas Eve. Which worked out well since both of our kids started puking Christmas morning. All in all, the stomach bug was swift and during the day so everyone was able to just sleep that night. (Always looking on the bright side…ahem).
Just to finish out 2016 with a bang, we’re dealing with all kinds of car repairs. First my car and now Jordan’s (his being so bad it had to be towed). We’re thinking his might be the transmission, but we shall see. We shall see.
Moral of that story is spend your Christmas money as soon as you get it so it doesn’t end up going to lame things like car repairs.
But on to other things…like the most popular posts of 2016. I’ll go in order of most views.
