Sunday, December 2, 2007


I saw this meme over at Jenn's who got it from sonya's, who got it from annie, and just had to do it...It's about Christmas my favorite time of year! If you join in the fun let me know so I can read your post :0)

Let's get started....
1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper of course...more fun for the kiddies!
2. Real tree or artificial? It's been a fake tree as long as I can remember...I can put it up early.
3. When do you put up the tree? The tree goes up the day after Remembrance Day.
4. When do you take the tree down? I take my tree down a day or two before the new year of shortly after...depends on the travelling...
5. Do you like eggnog? I do not like eggnog but it's something my grampie had to have every year :0)
6. Favorite gift received as a child? My very first Cabbage Patch Kid doll :0)
7. Do you have a nativity scene? I have that was my grammie's, I got it last year when she passed away, it's sitting on our family fire place mantel and the other I left in the box, I made it myself (tole painting)
8. Hardest person to buy for? My Grammie...what do you get someone who has everything...I figured it out, A nicely framed family picture!
9. Easiest person to buy for? If I had of had this question a few days ago I would have said Blake my 3 year old..he doesn't ask for anything he wants a Mr. Buckets game ? (will have to look into this one) and some Diego playset? So much for easy LOL
10. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? It was back in my teen years when my mom bought me too many shirts(6) (clearance) that I didn't really like...for some reason that has stuck with me...sorry mom
11. Mail or email Christmas cards? We mail out our annual family Christmas letter to our family and friends with a family picture with it.
12. Favorite Christmas Movie? One DVD it's The Santa Claus 1,2 and 3! On TV it's the old Santa Claus is Coming to Town...the one I grew up watching!
13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? I usually get started with the Boxing day sales...this year we didn't, then we moved and OMG things got messed up with the Budget this year...I am looking forward to the Boxing Day Sales this time LOL
14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Nope but I have thought of it....I would feel to guilty.
15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? COOKIES!! (shortbread with lots of icing)
16. Colored or white lights? I only use white lights....
17. Favorite Christmas song? Thistlehair the christmas bear.....ALABAMA CHRISTMAS
18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? we travel at Christmas to be with family but miss staying home like we use to years ago...
19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? Dasher-Dancer-Prancer-Vixen-Comet-Cupid- Donner-Blitzen-Rudolph! Did I get them
20. Angel on the tree top or a star? Angel
21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? We open the gifts Christmas morning but the kids get to open one before bed Christmas Eve.
22. Most annoying thing about this time of year? Sticking to the budget and getting the gift bought and wrapped...I love delivering them to the family! AND with my hubby being the manager of a retail store (not walmart) it annoying for him and us to try to get time off work to spend with family. Next year we may as well set up our tree in his store so we can spend Christmas with him...shouldn't Christmas be a time for family to be together...
23. What I love most about Christmas? Getting together with family and friends...(With all the travelling and my husbands job it's almost impossible to visit with family)
