Hey Friends and Family, how’s your Friday going!?! 

The kids only have a few days left of winter break and yesterday I took them to an indoor bounce house to get energy out and stay active. 

Since the weather is cold here, we are limited of what activities we can do outside and the indoor bounce house was the perfect place!

Before I start this post I also wanted to mention, this will be my last post of 2016 and 

my 500th blog post!!!

Some may be like, wooohooo-party time…and others maybe be like woopty-doo, haha, never the less that is a big milestone for me!☺

Ok, so today I’m sharing with you the Highlights of 2016, according to the READERS! These are some of my favorites too, and also a highlight reel of this year; what everyone wanted to read.

(The title on the bottom of each picture will take you to that particular post)
