I'm linking up with adorable Michelle for some get to know you Christmas style!
Hot Chocolate or Eggnog?
Diet Coke? I'm not a hot drink person. No coffee. But I have never had eggnog!
Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them underneath the tree?
When I was little Santa left his unwrapped. I do the same! They normally get one gift from Santa and he leaves some Lego minifigures or something hanging on the tree!
Colored lights or white?
White! It's so pretty! I've never had colored lights.
When do you decorate?
Over Thanksgiving sometime!
Real or Fake Tree?
Fake! Every year for the past 13 years! But our first Christmas together we had a real tree. It fell. Then this Christmas we got a real tree. It fell. But after some sawing and drilling, it's up, beautiful, and smells amazing!
What Tops Your Tree?
Normally an angel our oldest made at least 10 years ago. But I literally haven't even gotten our ornaments out of storage. Everything on our tree I bought this year! And this year it's got sprigs at the top of red glitter and burlap! My hubs says it looks like it's throwing up and my sis says it looks like it sprouted hair, but I think it's purdy!
Favorite Christmas Memories or Traditions?
Putting up the tree with my little sister. I literally would do it myself the day after Halloween when I was little. I loved the blue and white wise men ornaments and putting up my ornaments that we got each year. My mom got us one each year and I do that with the boys now. I love looking at them and seeing how their favorite things have changed! No more Elmo ornaments these days!
Do you remember your favorite gift as a child?
I used to get a porcelain doll each year. They are still lined up on the fancy couch at my daddy's house! But I was that kid who searched the entire house for my gifts and I even used to unwrap the presents just enough to see what it was. My mom quit putting tags on our gifts and just did certain paper for certain people (which I do now) so I wouldn't know what was mine! Told you I was terrible!
Do prefer giving or receiving?
I won't lie, I love presents! But I love buying for my kids even more! I think they are fun to buy for because it's like buying for my child self!
What is your favorite Christmas song?
little drummer boy...I love the sound of drums!
Candy Canes. Yuck or Yum?
eh. Not a big peppermint girl. Maybe a chocolate candy cane!?
Favorite Christmas Movie?
Still Charlie Brown, but I LOVE Elf!
Do you shop online or at stores?
Both! I am such a last minute shopper! I went to walgreens this week for some feminine products and came out with a $150 receipt and a full trunk! I did all my shopping for the two littlest Lambs right there! Who knew!
