  1. Thanks for all the great links! Here are a a few of our favorites from this week.

  2. nice post.i will visit the link in your post. thank you verymuch for great link.

  3. You’ve done it again! Thanks for a great roundup!

  4. I really like “Of Santa and Jesus” — so true. We not true Santa-philes, no gifts from Santa around here, but our daughter has been watching Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph, and I love the glow of the Christmas lights on our tree!

    But she also loves her manger scene, and wants to take “Baby Jessis” with her everywhere. I like the balance we have going on!

  5. Thanks a jillion for including me among these roses, Tsh!

  6. Hi Tsh,
