The Sunday Post #53 (12.28.14)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. I'm also going to link this up with Sheila's It's Monday post over at Book Journey

What a wonderful holiday we had - it's always a crazy rush to get everything ready and then it goes by so quickly! And now, I am looking forward to a week of doing nothing but reading and catching up on my blog!!!


Here's two photo's from yesterday's family gathering at my house - we had four of my siblings over with their families, plus my dad - 19 in all! The kids had a great time playing with their cousins, but boy did I feel bad for my one lone nephew! The top photo is my dad with 8 of his grandkids and the bottom is 7 of the kids playing with props that my sister-in-law brought over. So fun!!!






Have a great week everyone!!!
