The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted here @ Caffeinated Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.  See rules here: Sunday Post Meme

This is the final reading day for the #HoHoHoRAT and the Twitter party is today at 3:30 pm (EST) I had a blast reading, sharing holiday books and attempting all of the challenges. Yesterday my grandson the Royal Prince himself, stinky cast boy, turned two. It is hard to believe it has been two years since I witnessed his birth. Named after my late father, I adore this little guy and my heart swells every-time we are together.

You may have noticed I tweaked the comment box, placing it at the top so that you don’t have to scroll endlessly. I apologize for being an absentee Sunday Poster. I’ve got some things going on that have me swimming upstream without a paddle. Hugs to All! Stay Caffeinated.

    ‘Next week has been exhausting’ has me cracking up! I kind of feel like that at the moment. November has been such a busy month for me that I can’t even deal with it anymore xD Also, yay for his second birthday. Happy birthday to him ^.^ I love the new positioning of the comment box. Makes commenting that much easier 🙂

    Oh, I do like the comment place changing. And your random was funny too. Still so sorry for the prince. Can’t believe he’s two already! Sorry this is late. I stay so far behind commenting anyway but was in the road ten hours Sunday. Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving.

    Thank you for repositioning this box. I like its new place. Two years old? Oh boy. that age full of personality. My nephew is three and it’s like the new two’s which I’ve heard before when my youngest was a toddler. I bet you spoiled your grandson plenty for his birthday.
    I may try to get a post up today, a belated book one; we’ll see.

    Hope the #HoHoHoRAT and the Twitter party were a fun success! Happy Birthday to the Royal! I hope he had fun too! Hugs and Happy Thanksgiving if we don’t get to connect before Thursday!

  5. Laura @ Library of Clean Reads

    I can’t believe my daughter is going for her driving test tomorrow! It seems like yesterday she was a toddler running around the house. I’m off to read your review of ICE. Enjoy your new books!

    Congratulations on the Royal Prince’s second birthday – where has the time gone? I hope that he is on the mend and that cast isn’t causing too many problems. Have a good week, Kimberly.

    I like the comment box change. Hope things settle for you a bit before the holiday blitz. Happy reading.

    Next week has been exhausting. Actually this next week will be good for us as we are not going anywhere or doing anything but cooking good food, relaxing, and reading. I might actually have time to get to sewing or knitting which is great for audiobooks.

    I don’t know how you manage all you do, plus you have the Twitter Party. Everything in moderation.

    Happy birthday Prince! Anne – Books of My Heart

    I’m sorry you’re “swimming upstream without a paddle,” as you put it. I hope things get easier soon — either someone hands you a paddle or gives you a tow. Or pulls you to shore! Apropros of which, your Totally Random made me laugh. I feel like that some weeks, too. (Probably this one, come to think of it.)

    Happy birthday to the little prince!

    It really has gone by quickly. I remember your hospital baby picture.

    Yes, HoHoHoRAT has been a blast this year. I loved my books and the games, the visits, and the posts I’ve seen. Everyone did a great job bringing it together. I’m trying to finish up one more book under the wire.

    Great idea to move the comment box. Very handy!

    Hopefully your off the grid activities will slow down for you. Have a great week and good Thanksgiving, Kimberly!

  11. Mary @StackingMyBookShelves!

    Oh god, are we already thinking of next week? I am exhausted already. I really am. I lost almost 3 days because of the snow. Got stuck at my brothers. Ughh what a mess. Plus I am almost to finals week. Which is great but bad at the same time. I am going to check out a few of your reviews. I miss them. Have a wonderful Sunday!

    I am happy to hear you had a fun time with the readathon, I didn’t participate, but I did read one Christmas novella already. Happy birthday to the prince. I hop he’s doing well with the cast. When can the cast finally go off?

    I scrolled to the bottom and thought the comment box had disappeared, until I located it at the top, lol. Have a great week!

  13. Jolene Wilson

    Our Thanksgiving forecast looks to be in the 50’s so hopefully we can get some Christmas light up over the long weekend. Happy Birthday to stinky cast boy! Have a great week with your books and family.

    Happy Birthday to Prince Clayton!

    I know how you feel. I’ve been paddling against the current with only my hands all year. It sucks. A lot. I’m ready for 2018 to just be over already. I hope you have a great week, Kim.

  15. Tonyalee

    Wow two! I can’t believe it’s been two years. They grow so fast huh?!

    I hope I can make the twitter party!

  16. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    It’s amazing how much time flies when you watch the little ones grow! My niece will be turning 10 next month and I’m like what happened to the sweet baby girl I used to know? She’s already breaching on her preteen years with a teenage attitude! I don’t envy my sister right now! Lol.

    Nice new reads too! Totally new to me ones but I hope you enjoy them all!

    Here’s my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

    Happy Birthday to The Royal Prince! Time really does go fast. I hope you have fun at the Twitter party. I do love reading holiday books, but I haven;t had as much time for them as I hoped but I still have time 🙂 Strawberry Hill looks really good. I’ll have to add that to my list. Hope you have a great week!

  18. Jan @ Notes from a Readerholic

    I like having the comment box at the top of the comments, Kimberly! I missed doing HoHoHo this year, but hope that next year works out.

    Happy Birthday to the Royal Prince! I hope you have a wonderful week!

  19. Sam@wlabb

    Happy birthday to your little prince! I hope he is hopping along ok with the cast (poor dear!). They grow up so fast, and it’s amazing watching how much they change in so little time. I hope you and yours have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    “Next week has been exhausting” is something I can totally relate to right now! My twins will turn two this month! They’ve recently discovered biting, so we’re dealing with that, haha. I hope you have a wonderful week! I’ve had fun participating in the #HoHoHoRAT even though my sick kids made it nearly impossible to read.

    I bought a copy of Ice after reading your wonderful review, and I also got a copy of Strawberry Hill. It sounds really good! I hope we both enjoy it.

    Hope the little Royal had a fun birthday! Hope real-life calms down for you soon. 🙂

    Happy birthday to the Royal One! 🙂 It does go by quick!! And hope you have a fab Thanksgiving this week!

    Glad the HoHoHo RAT went well!
