Weekend links

“I do come home at Christmas. We all do, or we all should. We all come home, or ought to come home, for a short holiday—the longer, the better—from the great boarding school where we are forever working at our arithmetical slates, to take, and give a rest.” -Charles Dickens

  4. Thanks for the tips on the five dollar toys. It’s so hard to find cheap yet great toys. We are extreme couponers and we have trouble finding coupons and deals on toys. Also Happy New Years:)
