Happy Friday, Folks!!

Since we have just crossed the border into 2016 – and I am still writing 2015 at the end of every date…I thought we would do a Flashback Friday…into the past year, and all most some of what has happened with our little family.

I also did ALOT of painting and wallpaper removal…This spot was my favorite to work in…I almost broke my neck on multiple occasions.
