Christmas Tag

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags

Wrapping Paper. Used to be super fancy, this year with Aiden not so hot, but I am thinking of hand making gift cards. We'll see if I get around to it.

2. Real tree or Artificial?
I REALLY like the smell of a real tree. Most years we have done both. We get a tree from the "Festival of Trees" every year and then the want in me goes out and gets a real one. I don't know if we will this year. I sure hope so (hint hint, Josh).

3. When do you put up the tree?
When the Festival crew delivers it. The fresh one is usually close to Christmas when I can't stand not having it, any longer.

4. When do you take the tree down?
Around New years or when it becomes a major fire hazard (uh, maybe Valentines day.)

5. Do you like eggnog?
Not at all. Who wants to drink eggs, and what the heck is nog?

6. Favorite gift received as a child?
Train set Santa got me. My parents continually said NO, but way to go Santa. He always came through.

7. Hardest person to buy for?
Josh. The turd bucket has everything.

8. Easiest person to buy for?

9. Do you have a nativity scene?
Who knows. I can't remember and I am a stinker and haven't gone to the storage unit to get the decorations.

10. Mail or email Christmas cards?
Mail. This year may be a little behind due to the lack of snow. I want snow in my Christmas family picture!

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received?
I don't know, lets think, could it have been the "Quicken" Josh gave me our first Christmas. OR the Dragonfly necklace he gave me 2 Christmas' ago. Ohhh. You think, a dragon fly necklace, thats sweet. Yeah if it wasn't the EXACT same one he gave me the year before. He is getting better though.

12. Favorite Christmas Movie?
ELF. Going to probably watch it at least a dozen times this year. LMAO.

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas?
In the Summer. I like to be done before Thanksgiving so I can fully enjoy the holidays. This year 90% was done by then.

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present?
Absolutely. Who hasn't? Anybody want "Quicken" or a Dragonfly necklace?

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?

16. Lights on the tree?
Are there people out there who don't have lights on their tree? Mine suck this year. Hot pink and only on the stump. Weird.

17. Favorite Christmas song?

"Where are you Christmas?" by Faith Hill. From the Grinch soundtrack. Close second are all songs from the Forgotten Carols.

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home?
The constant fight. I would give anything to be a a tropical beach somewhere for Christmas. Josh however actually likes to be around family. I think I have lost this year.

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeers?
Sleepy, Bashful, Dopey, Sneezy, Happy, Doc, and my personal favorite, Grumpy.

20. Angel on the tree top or a star?

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning?
Christmas Eve, one gift which is always pajamas. Then Christmas morning.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year?
The bell ringers in front of Wal-mart. I am all for giving but I go to Wal-mart almost daily and I don't have that much change. And maybe just maybe I gave on the way in so quit giving me that stink eye. Oh and the traffic.

23. Favorite ornament theme or color?
My new mom ornament I got from Halmark last year.

24. Favorite for Christmas dinner?
Crab Fondue

25. What do you want for Christmas this year?
New furniture and possibly a new house to go along with it.

I'm not taking anyone. I'm not in the mood. How do you like that holiday spirit?
