Bumbles and Fairy-Tales April Updates and Book Haul (#62)


Happy MAY!!!
I cannot believe we're in May already!

SO much going on... my baby boy is getting big - his bottom two teeth came in at such an early age! oi! My older boys are even bigger - I can't keep up! And now, I have a little nephew to smooch upon!!! All boys in this family, lol! So happy for my sister and brother-in-law!!!

I've decided that since I don't get many books, etc. that I am going to only update and share my book hauls once or twice a month. Which hopefully will leave me with more time to post more reviews!!!

Hope you're all having a wonderful spring (or fall, depending where you are in the world!)!!!

I am also participating in Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Review.
