I was Tagged:

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? I prefer wrapping paper, but don't like wrapping odd shaped packages so I bag those.

2. Real tree or Artificial? Ours is artificial and I prefer that. Although the real trees smell wonderful. Random memory: When I was little, we would go to a tree farm as a family and pick out the tree. Cory and I were used as tree markers (so they could remember which ones they liked) while Mom and Dad made the final decision.

3. When do you put up the tree? Thanksgiving evening or the day after...whenever works best. We try and maximize the Christmas season!

4. When do you take the tree down? After our anniversary (Jan 1st)

5. Do you like eggnog? Oh my goodness, NO!

6. Favorite gift received as a child? Baby Talks and a doll stroller

7. Hardest person to buy for? My dad!

8. Easiest person to buy for? Natalie! She is thrilled with anything, even the small toys in happy meals. LOL Mike's parents are fun to shop for as well.

9. Do you have a nativity scene? YES!! It was a Christmas gift from Randy and Dorie last year. It is beautiful. I should post a picture of it.

10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail. I don't think I've ever received an email Christmas card.

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? I think it would be hurtful to say.

12. Favorite Christmas Movie? It's a Wonderful Life is really a beautiful movie. I cry every time. Although National Lampoon's Christmas vacation is a hoot! Elf is up there on my list too.

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? 3-4 paychecks before Christmas. Every gift we buy is with cash. NO CREDIT!

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? I don't think so, but I've encouraged my mom to do so.

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Monkey bread on Christmas morning, or (as a side dish with dinner) the canned, ocean spray jellied cranberry sauce.

16. Lights on the tree? White lights and multi lights. My parents had solid red lights on the tree (years ago) and I always thought that was neat.

17. Favorite Christmas song? Angels from the Realms of Glory, I heard the bells on Christmas Day, It came upon the Midnight Clear

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Both, it varies every year.

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? Yes...should I be embarrassed about this?

20. Angel on the tree top or a star? Neither, a big bow

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? Crowds, and the rudeness it brings out of people.

23. Favorite ornament theme or color? Mainly just various ornaments, but we fill in with red ball ornaments.

24. Favorite for Christmas dinner? I'm not picky

25. What do you want for Christmas this year? I would really love for all of us to stay healthy, and no snow, so Mike can be with us throughout the holiday. (and not have to work)
