Getting to Know You - Christmas Style!

I received this in a email yesterday and I thought it would get us in the Christmas mood!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper...but I don't really have to buy it. I most times using the packing paper that I receive in my Stampin Up boxes! So, thank you for ordering and adding to my stash. If I need more brown paper, I just use the brown wrapping paper in the shipping isle from Target! You get so much for so little! Add a cute bow and you are good to go!

2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial

3. When do you put up the tree? We usually do this the weekend after Thanksgiving. But we were so busy home-improving this year. So maybe we will get to it this weekend!

4. When do you take the tree down? Sometime the beginning of January.

5. Do you like eggnog? Nope

6. Favorite gift received as a child? My scooter

7. Hardest person to buy for? my father-in-law and grandmas

8. Easiest person to buy for? Mom and Mother-in-Law...they like to get free SU merchandise!

9. Do you have a nativity scene? No...but we have a class plate that we display that has a nativity scene on it.

10. Mail or email Christmas cards? MAIL...and hand stamped! (Still need to work on these!)

11.Worst Christmas gift you ever received? Can't think of any.

12. Favorite Christmas Movie? ELF is pretty funny!

13.. When do you start shopping for Christmas? I've already started. Hope to finish by this weekend...I love to shop online so that I don't have to leave the house!

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Don't think so

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Cheesey Potatoes and of course those chocolate graham cracker caramel things my gma makes! They are YUM-O!

16. Lights on the tree? Small White...we have lots of lights!

17. Favorite Christmas song? O Holy Night (sung my NSYNC of course)

18.Travel at Christmas or stay home? We travel to Louisburg and Kansas City...from Gardner that's not too far!

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer's? Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixon, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, and Rudolph! (I think I got them right!)

20. Angel on the tree too or a star? Shiny Silver Star...that's probably one of my favorite things that we bought with a giftcard from our wedding! Love it!

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Sam and I usually exchange on Christmas Eve. Then at Sam's parents and mine on Christmas or whenever we can fit it in.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? Christmas music starts way too early!

23. Favorite ornament theme or color? I love how my parents have given me an ornament every year since I can't even remember. We write the years on the box and they usually have something to do with what we did that past year. Like when I was in 9th grade and started taking French, I got a little Santa on an Eiffel Tower. And in 2003 when I became a Youth Director at a church I got a Silver Cross. It's fun to put those on the tree and remember what they are for!

24. Favorite for Christmas dinner? Cheesey Potatoes...I make a triple batch so we can fry them up for breakfast in the morning. So yummy!

25. What do you want for Christmas this year? The rest of the Twilight series, a giraffe print purse, a planner, and baby girl scrapbook stuff! I'm sure there's more...I just can't think of them now. I really hate to make lists!

If you post this on your blog too...send me a link so I can check it out!
