I was going to so some goggling to get all the answers so I could win the book, but then thought it would be more fun to see what I could do on my own...

1 - the city
2 - frosty
3 - up on the rooftop
4 - lowing (spelling?)
5 - on Christmas day in the morning
6 - no idea - how about 8 ft tall (that's my son's guess)
7 - turkey and some mistletoe.
8 - somebody and Ben. Bobby and Ben? johnny and Ben??
9 - Alvin (the chipmunk)
10 - don't think it's right, but I'll take a wild guess and say the little drummer boy
11 - ???? brown donkey??? don't think I've ever heard this one!
12 - in thee tonight. (o little town of Bethlehem)
13 - if you'll really hold me tight
14 - a dolly
15 - so "I can wish you merry Christmas" - (not to mention sister Susie sitting on a thistle)
16 - the girl - I think her name was Claire or Clairece or something that started with a "c"??
17 - no idea - didn't know it had a name
18 - I feel like I should know this one.... but I'm drawing a total blank!
19 - blue (go Elvis)
20 - Parson Brown

EC - all over the town
next time won't you sing with me?

THANKS - that was fun.

PS - if you're thinking that the horse's name is "Bob" - it's not. it just means he has a bobbed tail. They would cut the tails of carriage horses short to keep them from getting caught in the reins. (i learned this in my son's preschool class)

I promise I didn't look it up - for "some reason" I've had songs in my minds all morning - and voila' the OX and LAMB kept time.... (#10) I had the right song at least...

Oh my gosh! I absolutely refuse to think hard enough to answer your questions.

But that's okay. I don't need to win. I just ordered my own copy. :)

Hi.At hospital checking Jim in. I can't get to my email but needed to get you a message.

I dropped by this morning. Tried to get there yesterday. I knew you'd be gone already but Brandi was still there. I left something for you. Told her to put it on your pillow where you'd be sure to see it when you get home.

Also, do you know if Grove Crest is doing a book fair between now and Christmas break?
