The Bouquet of Talent Linky Party and Most Viewed #172

Welcome to the party, friends!  I am so happy to see you again this week.  Wow, I can't believe we are less than a week away from Christmas!  I still have so much to do.  We have Christmas with my side of the family at my house.  Now that school is out for the holidays, I have to get busy with all my food preparation.    I also have family coming in, so it will be a busy week.  

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful posts with us last week.   I believe I went over my usual feature limit this week, but I just couldn't help it.   You all are awesome!  

I wish you and your families a very Blessed and Merry Christmas!!
