"...I said to Hollywood, 'Where'd he go?' Hollywood said, 'Where'd who go?'..." Name that movie. Come on...just try.
Well I can't believe it's been NINE months since I've blogged. Seriously, where did the time go?

Nana turned 86 and visited with her long-time friend, Mabel, at her birthday party:

The Harvey family grew and welcomed little Lennox Jude on October 2nd:
Big sister & brother, Presleigh Nicole (5) and Hendrix Matthew (2), are SO sweet to baby Lennox!
Copper & Libby played and played and played:
I went to the Franklin Fall Festival with Ariel (Presleigh's favorite):
And then December rolled around and this guy asked me to marry him:
