Funtastic Friday 155

Funtastic Friday Poster


Did you have a good Thanksgiving? We had lots of food and family here!  I am late posting the party as I just got home from Utah--Ali and her boyfriend attended a Billy Joel conference there so they had a good time.  I did a little Christmas shopping and it was delightful to see all the beautiful decorations and lights in downtown SLC.
We're looking for a few more bloggers to help us host Funtastic Friday. If you're interested, get in touch with me or one of the other hosts.


We would love it if you followed us on social media. FF Party Hosts

Let's take a look at our Features from last week's party (don't forget each host chooses their own Features so stop by each blog).
