Hello bookish friends!!! 
It's been a looong time! And I have missed you all so very much!
I've been reading... sporadically, lol! 
But I am hoping to build on that and start blogging and reviewing later this week :) 
Woo hoo!!!

Going to take a moment to share what has happened in the last few months... 
SO much has happened in our lives - take a peek ;)  

In August, we MOVED!!!


School started in September for us! 
Look at my 2 BIG boys :) 

And we were all waiting around on this little guy to be fully cooked ;) 

Happy (belated) Halloween!!!

And then this happened on November 7th!!! 
Please meet Samuel Joseph :) 

Happy (belated) Thanksgiving :) 

Oh my, that was a lot of stuff that happened since I last posted, lol! 
Hope you are all doing well! And I look forward to catching up with all of you... 
and books! Many, many books too!!! ;)
