13 Days to Santa

Christmas Book of the Day: Tosca's Christmas by Matthew Sturgis. Christmas picture books are magical. This is one of my favorites.

Christmas gift of the day: The Writing Sets from Barnes and Noble. Just the perfect combination of practical and pretty. I love them all. 

The Writing Quote of the day: "Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."
Mark Twain

Thanks for the book recommendations. Oh, I loved the Yule Log post - way to go, kids! I always loved doing that when I taught French. I made it a family tradition at our house, too....every year I make 2 or 3 to serve all our family! Joyeux Noel! Linda

What a lovely and interesting blog you have. Thanks for the nice comments you left on my blog. I love childrens Christmas books and still have all of books I grew up with. I love reading them to my kids. Happy Holidays.

Love the Mark Twain Quote! I have a mere acquaintance who always speaks highly of me in front of others and it just does something to make me feel like I need to be as good as she thinks I really am! ha ha!

Carey, there is nothing more relaxing than reading a picture book to a child. :)

Dana/Daisy, what a good friend you have!
