Christmas Fun!

I received this little Christmas thingy in my email from my BFF Jodi, so I thought I would go ahead and fill it out on my blog.
Basically I have nothing else to blog about....

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?

I love wrapping paper, but I have been known to use a bag at the last moment! And there ar some gifts that you just have to put in a bag!

2. Real tree or Artificial?

I don’t know if so much love a Real Tree but I do love the process of getting a real tree, going out to the Christmas tree farm, finding a tree, and watching my dad chop it down. I did that my whole life and I loved it so much. But I will admit an artificial tree is so much easier to maintain!

3. When do you put up the tree?

This was my first year to ever have the privilege of putting up my own tree and I did it the day we got back from our families homes for Thanksgiving. But it is only a 4fter and took me about 5 minutes.

4. When do you take the tree down?

I will let you know in about a month

5. Do you like eggnog?

I have never had it, but Luke is an Eggnog crazy. It is weird how much he likes it.

6. Favorite gift received as a child?

Probably my pink bike, or this really cool neon coat I got. My love for clothing started young. OH it would have to be when my parents surprised me with a ski trip with my youth group (I thought I would be the only one not going) Now that was fun!!

7. Hardest person to buy for?

Hands down, my dad.

8. Easiest person to buy for?

Probably my mom or sisters cause they just want the same things I do.

9. Do you have a nativity scene?

No, but I want one. The problem is I have ZERO Christmas decorations, something that I am working on. I plan to go shopping the day after Christmas when they are all 50% off! I would love the Willow nativity scene

10. Mail or email Christmas cards?

No question about it. Mail. I just made my very first Christmas cards and I am so excited to send them out. SO excited. Our Christmas card is nothing special, but it was all we could budget this year. I hope to have some better ones next year. I also LOVE receiving them. It is like my favorite thing ever! Oh by the way I did end up using a wedding picture on our Christmas Card. But not the picture that I put in that particular post. A different wedding picture.

11. Worst Christmas Gift You Ever Received?

I can't think of one.
One time I got a leather jacket, but it accidentaly still had the sensor on it so I had to wait a couple of days to wear it, but I still loved the jacket.

12. Favorite Christmas Movie?

Christmas Vacation

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas?

Every year I say I am going to start in October, but then I usually start Mid December

14 . Have you ever recycled a Christmas present?

No. But I plan on doing it this year. Who will get the ‘special’ gift????? That is the question my family is asking

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?

Well lots of stuff, but my favorite will always be Cheese Potatoes

16. Lights on the tree?

I like special trees with special colors. A beautiful tree in the living room with white lights, and then various Christmas tree’s around the house with special colors (a pink one, blue one, purple and black one, multi one, etc) this is a goal of mine to have numerous tree’s throughout the house. But right now it is just a goal to get a house

17. Favorite Christmas song?

O Holy Night. That “Fall on Your Knee’s” part just gets me every time!

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home?

Well I don’t really have a choice, so I will choose travel.

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?

Oh you know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen, but do you recall the most famous reindeer of ALL?? Rudolph!

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning?

Christmas morning!! In fact my family gets into a fight about this every year. I am a stickler when it comes to doing it on Christmas morning!!!

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year?

Well 2 things
One: Not having money to buy whatever I want for everybody
Two: Not being able to go home and be with my family on Christmas Eve cause we have a church service that night. So sad.


23. Favorite ornament theme or color?

None yet, I am still developing my own theme.

25. What do you want for Christmas this year?

Pants that fit, or a MacBook. I will take either.

Fun post! Don't worry about the Christmas decor. You will slowly get there. This is our 2nd Christmas together and we have so much more decor than we did last year.

Jenna said...

Yay! I did this same thing today, and it will not surprise you that we had many of the same answers. :)

Loved yours and love you, my friend!

How fun! I'm so glad you ended up going with a wedding pic for your cards. Please post them! I can't wait to see how they turned out. I picked a wedding pic for ours too. I'm so excited to send them out!!

This is so fun! I've slowly added a lot of decorations over the last 3 years....our 1st year we barely had any, too.
I agree with you about missing family time on Christmas Eve....my Josh is studying to be a pastor, so I can totally relate. :-(

Cute post! I can't believe you never had egg nog! I don't like it, but you gotta try it!

O Holy Night is my fave song too and I get chills everytime it gets to the "fall on your knees" part!!

In Florida I saw a Chick-Fil-A and though of you! But we didn't get to go, but I really wanted to!

I love the list! I was just at Joann Fabrics last night (I don't know if you have any of those or not), but they have already marked down a lot of their Christmas stuff down by 60%!
