It's that time of the year

This is too fun not to do!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? A little of both. I like that bags are easy, but I love to watch people unwrap presents, especially the kids.

2. Real tree or Artificial? Real. No toilet brush Christmas Tree here!

3. When do you put up the tree? Right after my birthday :)

4. When do you take the tree down? Always the day after Christmas.

5. Do you like eggnog? It is one of my absolute favorites!

6. Favorite gift received as a child? Easy Bake Oven

7. Hardest person to buy for? My Dad and Grandma Mabel are tied for first place.

8. Easiest person to buy for? Chloe

9. Do you have a nativity scene? Of Course.

10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail, and they are coming :) Hope to finish them up this week/weekend.

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? Mr. Hankey, the Christmas poo. (He was a White Elephant gift) I say that, but 10 years later he is still in our Christmas "stuff" and the kids always want to get him out and play with him. I swear I've gotten rid of him every year. Wonder how he keeps coming back. Hmmm.

12. Favorite Christmas Movie? Elf and A Christmas Story.

13. When do you start shopping? In October - just like my Sister-in-law Megan :)

14.Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Nope.

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? My Mom's rolls

16. Lights on the tree? Of course, white ones.

17. Favorite Christmas song? A very Harry Christmas, can't beat it!

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Both. On the 24th we celebrate with Eric's family - and then on the 25th we head to my parents house.

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer's? Oh you know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen - but do you recall, the most famous reindeer of all? Rudolph :) Ya, I can name them.

20. Angel on the tree top or a star? More of a star gal.

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Both!

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? The rude people out shopping. They drive me bonkers!!! Which is why I try to get done early, and what I don't get done early, I try to finish up online to avoid the stores.

23. Favorite ornament theme or color? This year we have a mostly red and bright green tree and I like it because it's a kid friendly tree - no broken ornaments, yahoo!

24. Favorite Christmas drink? Eggnog. It really is one of my favorites :D

25. What do you want for Christmas this year? To be with my family and friends. I'd take a new car too :D
