Recap of 2015

So...2015 -a LOT happened in 2015. We sold our house in ONE day and bought a bigger house with a bigger yard because Opie needed more space and we wanted to get away from the swimming pool. The market was crazy - we had 2 offers on our house within one hour of the listing! We were one of seven offers of the house we bought and had to go over the asking price by $11,000 to get it. CRAZY!
I traded my red 2013 Lincoln MKX for a Luxe 2016 Lincoln MKC. A little smaller but I like it. Not a whole lot of difference, but a few more bells and whistles.

I finished my Dog Training course so I am now certified although I have not officially gone in to business. I originally took the courses to be prepared for something to do once I retire in a few years but I may do some side training this summer. In the meantime, I help friends (free) and work with Opie. 

My daughter and son in law welcomed a new addition to their family. Ella Grace was born in October 2014 and adopted into our family. She is adorable and we just love her to pieces.
 We had another birth - Pearlie Mae - was born December 11th. This makes our 8th GrandAngel! Now they range from one month to 16 years. My son and daughter in law now have 4 daughters! Their oldest is 16 and up until Pearlie Mae, their youngest was 9. What an angel!
 I got to see Brooklyn (middle grandangel) play basketball a couple of times and she is really good. She was also Homecoming Princess so she crowned the new princess this year. Last year Alayna, my oldest grandangel was Homecoming Princess and she crowned Brooklyn! What a sight to see.

We took some cute Christmas photos with Opie and were able to have a tree this year! He has grown up enough that we were confident that it would remain upright and it did. Next year we plan to have 2 trees.

 Our Christmas was spent in Arkansas with my family. I actually stayed the week before since Pearlie Mae arrived just before Christmas.

So - those were the highlights of 2015. A good year for my family. A fun year. Hoping 2016 will be just as wonderful.

I know it has been a good while since I have blogged because I spend most of my blogging time working on Opie's  blog but I have decided to get back to this one. Actually Opie and I will share this one together. 
Opie will continue with his blog (with my help) - but he isn't going to hog this one!

  1. Well done on selling the home and also on getting a new car after the trade in. A lot of stuff is going on in your blog! Where do you even find the time? Congratulations on the dog training certificate, too. I am sure it must be a relief to know you are now certified.
