Christmas Things About Me You Didn't Know You Wanted To Know

Once again, I got one of those "answer these questions and then send it to everyone you know" emails. Instead of doing that, I'll make all a-y'all read it. You can thank me later. This also works because I don't have an interesting thought in my head. All that's rolling around up there is all the stupid stuff I have to get done today, which I'm pretty sure you don't want to hear about...like go to WalMart to pick up my Site To Store packages, Penney's to pick up Zach's pictures, Harbor Freight to look for ANYTHING to get DJ and batteries (hopefully rechargeable), bake 6 DOZEN cookies for my cookie exchange tonight, go go Toys R'US for something for my 7 month old Nephew (50% off Fisher Price stuff today), Fold DJ's laundry that I washed this weekend (yes, three days ago), do more laundry for the boys and TRY to get it put away. Gee, seems like I just told you everything anyway.

Now, to the REALLY interesting stuff!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping Paper- why would I make things easy for myself?
2. Real tree or artificial? REAL - as I've said before, You'll have to kill me before I allow my children to wake up Christmas morning with a fake tree.
3. When do you put up the tree? As soon as I can convince my husband
4. When do you take the tree down? When it becomes a serious fire hazard
5. Do you like eggnog? Absolutely NOT
6. Favorite gift received as a child? Probably my dollhouse...which is sadly in a box in my garage
7. Do you have a Nativity scene? Absolutely NOT
8. Hardest person to buy for? DJ- he always just buys whatever he wants, so there's never anything good to get him.
9. Easiest person to buy for? Dylan - Thomas or Cars and we're good to go.
10. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? One of those "Jesus fish" bracelets - regardless of the fact that I had a "Darwin" thingy on my car at the time...
11. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail
12. Favorite Christmas Movie? White Christmas or Elf - Depends on my mood
13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? It depends- First time I see something I HAVE to get for someone
15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Strata
14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? I don't think so
16. Clear lights or colored on the tree? Clear...and a lot of them!
17. Favorite Christmas song? Hmmm...Jingle Bells right now b/c Dylan has started singing it and it's freakin adorable
18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Both-we alternate years between staying in town w/ the in laws and traveling to see my family.
19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeers? It might take me a minute, but I can do it.
20. Angel on the tree top or a star? Felt Snowman from Pottery Barn Kids
21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? One Christmas Eve, the rest in the morning
22. Most annoying thing about this time of year? Living in Southern CA and having absolutely NO chance of EVER having a white Christmas...

Merry Christmas!
