Okay, so this should have gone on the last post, but I forgot...
It's totally snagged from Binks, thanks Binks :o)


1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper, any inexpensive but pretty paper will do.

2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial, I think I've only had one or two real ones in my life, they are beautiful but a lot of work and I'm scared to death they will catch on fire!

3. When do you put up the tree? take the tree down? Whenever the mood strikes us. We try to wait till Dec. 18th to honor my husband's grandfather's birthday but I can't always hold out till then.
It usually comes down when I'm sick of looking at it, right around the beginning of Feb. (yes we are that lazy)

4. Do you like eggnog? YUMMY!

5. Favorite gift received as a child?
The Sunshine Family and their house! That and the beautiful dollhouse that my Grandmother gave me. She made every single thing in it from the needlepoint rugs to the little fake fruit for the kitchen. It even has a Christmas tree that really lit up!

6. Hardest person to buy for? My little brother. He's a total science/techno nut! (in a good way :o)

7. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes, I just bought a new one a couple years ago

8. Mail or email Christmas cards? Snail mail

9. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? Can't really think of anything I haven't loved

10. Favorite Christmas Movie? Christmas Story! LOVE that movie, it makes me crack up every time I watch it. Oh, and Charlie Brown, can't forget him...

11. When do you start shopping for Christmas? After Thanksgiving

12. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Yes, someone gave me a lotion that had a scent I didn't care for so I gave it to a friend who loved it.

13. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? EVERYTHING. I can't get enough food of all kinds at this time of year lol

14. Lights on the tree? Yes, tiny sparkly clear ones

15. Favorite Christmas song? Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and Baby It's Cold Outside

16. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Staying home. I'm not a big traveler. Although last Christmas at my Mom's was wonderful!

17. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer's? Dasher,Dancer,Prancer,Vixen,Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen . (I totally stole Binks answer)

18. Angel on the tree top or a star?Star

19. Open the presents Christmas eve or Christmas day? We have dinner and open gifts at my In-laws on Christmas Eve and then have our own gift opening at home on Christmas morning

20. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? Commercial/materialism.

21. Favorite ornament theme or color? Just a mix of all the ornaments we've collected over the years, no specific theme or color.

22. Favorite for Christmas dinner? Ham and all the yummy side dishes

23. What do you want for Christmas this year?
Anything I might get will make me really happy, it always does! But if I could pick one thing I think I would love to have a Wii Fit! It looks like a lot of fun, if you can call getting fit "fun" lol

Feel free to snag it for yourself if you'd like!

I actually read this last week and I swear I left a comment. But, alas, nothing there.
I totally loved the Sunshine Family! Especially the baby. That was kinda new in my day. Not many babies around for Barbie. lol
