Stuff I was working on as the year ticked over (because we apparently don't do parties anymore).
We didn't get to do our Solstice Wreath this year due to a little more craziness than usual. But other stuff got done.

Because they're apparently useful to have and I haven't done one forever (seeing as I've spent so much time redoing things). Let's try a 5 year plan.

Edited 2017 Jan 7: made the scripts slightly more reliable (not relying on window ids) but they will now get extremely confused if there's more than one instance of Blender open
We haven't really made good use of our zoo passes this year. Hopefully this will be remedied next year. 10yo stole my phone to take a number of photos of things she considered cute and as we ventured into the Asian rainforest to see the Komodo dragon and the red panda it reminded me that there are a few sections we don't get to very often and we should probably make the effort to go into them.

They were kind of background characters before so not that well developed, even though Andromeda was going steady with one of my main characters.
