Goodbye 2015


I can't believe that this year is coming to an end.  I think I missed a few months for some really good reasons.  But since I am going to focus on all good things right now.  Here are some highlights.
This little guy has brought us so much joy.  Hank the Tank has kept us on our toes.  He gets into things he shouldn't but we can't get enough of him.  And his big brother Piper loves him and has someone new to mother.
 
 
 
We really enjoyed our family vacation to Hilton Head.  It is so much fun having all the cousins together.  Seeing our older kids have good times with each other is also heartwarming as parents.
 
 
 
All those showings and inspections finally landed us here.  Our new little home by the lake.  The lake is very small but a bonus along with home.  We do love it here. 
 
 
My minis and doll auctions led me to having a little space at a consignment mall. It has already changed from this picture.  Mabel went with me to fluff my space.  Low and behold, when she saw the space next to me made clothes for American girl dolls. 
 
We had the best Christmas.but did miss our family in Colorado .  Family time is always the best.  We love our grandchildren and spending time with them.  Our children as adults make us so proud.   The youngest struggled so much this year.  I will soon share more about his turn around. 
We lost friends to relocating. Some are now in Heaven.  We continue to pray for our friends and family that have cancer.  We are looking forward to the New Year.  My biggest hope for the New Year is that Hubby will retire.  Here is to 2016....................

Debby, I am glad that 2015 is coming to end praying that 2016 will be a better year. I will be happy when I get a set of wheels back. It has been a month since my accident and I don't know what is taking the insurance company so long. Oh well, I am glad that you have a space in a mall that you can put your dolls. I love your little house. Hoping 2016 will bring us a better year. Take care. Happy New Year. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend.

Such cute grandchildren. Sounds like a great vacation. Enjoy your home and some time to relax. They say moving is one of the most stressful things in life. Did you do a long distance move? We've done that twice, not easy!

Happy New Year!
