Best Shot Monday & Holiday Salutations

Welcome to the very first Best Shot Monday hosted at Mother May I. I appreciate your willingness to come on over! I've even created a bright and shiny new button commemorating the event. Yay!

red BSM button

I know it's Christmas eve and everyone is busy with the festivities of the season but I am giddy to post something holidayish. After all, it's not everyday you see Santa taking flight! Thanks for indulging me and joining in the fun.



Would you like to share a little holiday cheer?

*****************
If you've got a Best Shot Monday badge on your blog, I'd love it if you'd replace it with the new one. And don't forget to link it back to this blog; BSM's new and proper home. Thanks!

Wonderful photos - as always.

I will replace my button with the new one - thanks for continuing BSM - would be lost without you! :)

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Here is mine.

Yay! My first post at your new place!

I've got two for everyone--this first one isn't all that holiday-ish, although two of the photos definitely answer the question of whether there will be snow for Christmas here...http://www.andtherestishistory.com/blog/2007/12/23/bsm-snowtime-remote-control-bonding/

The other post is definitely holiday-ish. It's our holiday card sent to family and friends, and I'd like to share it with you :) Here goes: http://bohtieque.com/blog/2007/12/23/happy-holidays-pt-2/

Julie said...

Grr...I forget that I actually have to code the links with Blogger :)

Here's the winter snow post, and here's the holiday card. There!

Can anyone, or Julie, share how to "code the links" so that we can just click them? Lots of work to copy and paste every link. ;-)

Julie said...

It's html--I don't know if I can do it here, but I'll try to show you:

<a href="http://www.site.com/post.htm" >This is the link. </a>


The "a href" part sets up the link. The /a part shuts off the link. The part between the quotation marks is whatever the link should be.

Let's hope this works!

Melody A. said...

Thanks, Julie! (And Susie.)

I absolutely love your BSM!!! Mine isn't quite as much a great photo as it is an emotional attachment. I love them nonetheless. Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! Great photos and I love the new button, I'll have to figure out how to change it out when I return from Texas and also "code the links", too.

Here's mine:

Merry Christmas! I have replaced my button, and I did have my BSM up, but I forgot to post it here.

Was that photo taken at the Grove by chance? Very, very cool shot!

Hey, I missed Monday due to Christmas festivities.

But do you have a code for the button that links to MMI? Love the button.
