Mailbox Monday - November 16

Mailbox Monday is a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued. Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. It now has a permanent home at the Mailbox Monday blog.

Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles, and humongous wish lists.

Hope you had a nice week. It was another busy one around here. My family and I got together with my extended family over the weekend for a pre-Thanksgiving event we called FauxGiving. There were so many of us we needed to rent a hall!

Paul and I.

My oldest sister and her baby boy.

My middle sister and her two kids.

Take that, doctor who said at my age things won't heal as quickly!

I'll share more pictures later. Here comes the books. Well, the book, because nothing arrived in my mailbox last week, but I did pick up this freebie from Amazon.

Brooklyn Prescott (if that's even her real name) is the new girl at The Rosewood Academy for Academic Excellence, now that she's moved back to the States after two years living in London. Rosewood, a boarding school for children of the rich and famous and known for its celebutantes, is missing just one element important to any junior's education: boys. But luckily for Brooklyn, and the rest of the Rosewood girls, there's a boys' boarding school, The Westwood Academy, just a few miles away.

On her very first day, Brooklyn meets Will, a gorgeous and flirty boy on campus to help with move in. But is he who she thinks he is? And what about Brady, the cute stable boy? Or Jared, the former child actor with his grown-up good looks who can always make her laugh? As Brooklyn settles in at Rosewood, she's faced with new friends, new challenges and new opportunities to make herself into the girl she always wanted to be. Whoever that might be.

What was in your mailbox last week?

I love the idea of your Faux holiday event...we do something similar a couple of days after Thanksgiving.

Thanks for sharing...and I love your blog background.

Look like you had a great get together, and wow on the splits!!

Love the name Fauxgiving. My son and I are leaving for NYC Saturday morning with my oldest son and his family. My daughter can't go and I planned an early Thanksgiving meal to share with her tomorrow. Thanks to you, I have a name to call it!

Thanks for paying me a visit this week. Sorry it has taken me so long to return the favor. Lots going on here.

We definitely had a fun time. It's not often we can all get together. I used to be more flexible, but haven't stretched in a long, long time. My sister was picking on me because my back leg was bent.

Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving.
