Everything You Always Wanted To Know About How We Celebrate Christmas...

***but didn't care enough to ask***

Todays post is a meme inspired by Missy. C'mon I know you really wanted to ask me these questions. Enjoy, I am tired tonight from the birthday party for the girls. It was a great party and all had fun. I will post pictures tomorrow, but here is a preview.

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?
hot chocolate.

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
Santa wraps his gifts in his own special paper and leaves them in a nice bag with our name on it. He is even nice enough to leave the rest of the roll for next year's regular gifts.

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white?
WHITE! No lights outside AGAIN this year! I am seriously thinking of hiring someone to do it next year. Hubby wont do it, hopefully the girls won't need therapy someday because of the lack of lights outside. The main tree is white. I did break down and get a colored tree for our family Secret Santa tree. I must admit it looks so pretty with the colored lights, but I won't tell them.

4. Do you hang mistletoe?
No mistletoe here.

5. When do you put your decorations up?
The Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend, but we don't light the trees until Dec. 1st.

6. What is your favorite holiday dish?
Mashed potatoes, mmm...yummy for my tummy.

7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child?
Christmas 1985, my Dad did the Christmas shopping that year. If I ever find the picture I will post it. My brother and I got everything and more on our lists that year

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?
Not sure of the year, but my brother spilled the beans as he rummaged through the house searching for presents when the parents were gone.

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?
One, new jammies for all, color coordinated or matching a must :-)

10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
Simple, lots of handmade ornaments and white lights.

11. Snow! Love it or Dread it?
Love it! I really hope it snows this year!!!

12. Can you ice skate?
Yes, without breaking my neck.

13. Do you remember your favorite gift?
My Cricket Doll, oh the memories and the songs. In fact I was singing the party song today while getting ready for the girls party.
