IRA early withdrawal for first time home buyer

My wife and i recently took some one fund out of her IRA for a down payment on a house. We took the money out in December 2016 as we were supposed to close on the house 12/30/16. However, closing got pushed back till 1/17/17. Can we still use the qualified first-time home buyers, up to $10,000 rule for 2016 even though we closed in 2017 considering we did take the $$ out in 2016?

Certainly.  The only requirement is that the closing occur no more than 120 days after the date of the distribution.  You are well within that with closing occurring less than 50 days after you received the distribution.
