All about Christmas

I'm not going to tag anybody for this, but would love to read everybody's answers to this. If you do this, please comment & tell me so!!!

***Disclaimer: I am a little OCD when it comes to Christmas!***

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? I do mostly wrapping paper & a few bags. However, I'm not a fan of the wrapping the presents part of Christmas!

2. Real tree or Artificial? I love a real tree, but we have a "permanent"(doesn't that sound better than artificial?) ones. That is, one 7 ft. tree & four 4 ft. trees.

3. When do you put up the tree? Thanksgiving Friday!!!

4. When do you take the tree down? Sometime in January. I love my house decorated for Christmas & it always looks so bad when I take everything down.

5. Do you like eggnog? yes. Yum-o! But it's such a pain to make.

6. Favorite gift received as a child? My 1st Cabbage Patch Kid? An ET doll? I honestly can't remember.

7. Hardest person to buy for? My Mother-in-law. She's one of those people that if she sees it & likes it, she buys it for herself. Just like my BF, Becky. But we don't exchange gifts. PTL!

8. Easiest person to buy for? My Kids! They tell you exactly what to buy.

9. Do you have a nativity scene? Of course. We have 7, two of which are for the children to play with.

10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail, of course.

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? The Christmas before we got married in May, we were "living in sin" & Retro gave me a crock pot for Christmas. Seriously. A crock pot.

12. Favorite Christmas Movie? The Santa Clause movies, Christmas Vacation, Polar Express, Elf, the Grinch & my new favorite...Fred Claus. It's a must see. But then again, I do have a thing for Vince Vaughn.

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? As soon as I can get my hands on Retro's credit card, this year I started in October!

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? My lips are sealed on that one!

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Everything! You know that weight I lost? I think the holidays are helping me to find it!! :(

16. Lights on the tree? I do colored lights IN the house & white lights & garland on the porch. We might have some issues with our outdoor decorations this year, since the addition of Buck the Crackhead Lab to our family. This problem will probably be blog-worthy, so keep a lookout for that drama to unfold!

17. Favorite Christmas song? I love Christmas music. It's been on my radio & in my CD player since the beginning on November. But my favorite songs are Mary, Did you know? (Kenny & Wynonna's version is awesome) & Faith Hill's Where are you Christmas?

18. Travel at Christmas or stay at home? We stay home for the holidays, maybe go to Beech Mountain, NC between the 26th & 31st.

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer's? Of course! You want me to? I can also recite 'Twas the Night before Christmas... ODC, remember.

20. Angel on the tree top or a star? On the big tree, I got a funky flower-looking thing this year! The playroom tree has an angel!

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? We do Christmas Eve at Gammi's, Christmas morning, our house & Christmas lunchtime at Babsy's.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? Crowds!!! Not big on crowds.

23. What theme or color are you using? Bright, fun colors!

24. Favorite for Christmas dinner? Turkey & dressing

25. What do you want for Christmas this year? I have decided all I want (because I know I'm not getting the "rapper-style" diamond stud earrings) is like a weekend spa get-away, by myself & with my friends would be cool!

26. Do you have a favorite ornament, what? I have tons of favorites! They all have a story behind them. One of my faves right now is my Little Old Lady That Lived in the Shoe Christopher Radko ornament. Wonder why?

27. Gifts from Santa? Wrapped or Unwrapped? UPWRAPPED!!! Again, not a big wrapper fan! We do take everything out of it's box & packaging & display it all cute like!

Here's a picture of the pink tree! It's still a work in progress &
looks cuter in person than in this picture!

I LOVE the pink tree. If I had girls, I'd probably put up a pink tree, too. But -- I don't think Brian or the boys would much care for one...LOL! They're lucky to have ANY tree up this year...LOL!

Hey, tell me about Beech Mountain, NC. We're renting a cabin up in Blue Ridge after C'mas, but we thought about NC, too. You can email me @ spoiledchef@gmail.com. Thanks girl! Hope you're enjoying the holidays!
