Fun Christmas Meme

I have definitely been busy lately and have not really felt like blogging - mainly because I did not want to take the time and there has been nothing that I have felt like sharing - things that you just don't blog about.

So, when I saw this meme on The Gang's All Here, I decided to take a few moments to this.

A Christmas Meme About Me!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? I like a combination of both.
2. Real tree or artificial? artificial - that is what I grew up with and we found a great deal on one last year after Christmas
3. When do you put up the tree? This year it was about one week after Thanksgiving. I would like to make it a tradition to do it the day after Thanksgiving, but too much was going on that weekend
4. When do you take the tree down? Well, this is our first year of having a large Christmas tree up - so, I am not sure. My one son is born on January 2nd and this next one is due around then, so I will probably wait until sometime after their birthday - maybe after the first week of January - this year...not really sure!
5. Do you like eggnog? LOVE it - especially Turkey Hill brand!
6. Favorite gift received as a child? I am not sure - I often got a lot of clothes, and I did enjoy something new to wear
7. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes - we were given a large stable as a wedding gift and my in-laws just gave us a nativity set for this year - it is really nice. I also bought Brady a Veggietales one last year (after Christmas), and I know that he is going to love it! He really enjoys Veggietales lately. His favorite right now is Lord of the Beans
8. Hardest person to buy for? Most people - that is why I have asked them all for a list!
9. Easiest person to buy for? My son and nephews
10. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? I cannot remember a bad one at the moment
11. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail. This year it will be after the baby arrives though, so they will be late
12. Favorite Christmas Movie? I have no idea at the moment. I enjoy movies, but I really do not have favorite ones. I'll let you know this one another year
13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Whenever I see something throughout the year that I think someone would like, but usually after the summer is over
14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Only in the White Elephant gift exchanges
15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Just about everything. We have an Italian Christmas, as far as food goes - it is all delicious!
16. Clear lights or colored on the tree? Tiny white lights - and our tree is prelit!
17. Favorite Christmas song? I like a lot of them - can't pick a favorite at the moment, but I like the ones that are about Jesus
18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? We open presents in the morning as a family, then my parents come over and then we all go to my sister's on Christmas day. We have been spending Christmas Eve with Dawson's family for the past few years
19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? I think so - I just have to sing the song
20. Angel on the tree top or a star? We have not decided on this yet, but I am thinking a star - we just do not have it yet!
21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Christmas Eve with my in-laws and Christmas morning with our immediate family and my extended family
22. Most annoying thing about this time of year? Traffic, the busy-ness of everything going on (it is fun, but it takes a lot of planning with the boys birthdays happening too!)
23. What I love most about Christmas? Baking (although, I have decided that I will not be doing a lot of that this year), spending time with my family, Christmas music - it definitely put me in a good mood!

:) We have the Veggie Nativity and I love it. Hearing Junior sing in his little off-key kid voice just makes me smile.

Thanks for playing! I've never seen or heard of the Veggie Tales nativity. My kids are moving past the Veggie Tales stage, sorta. And that makes me sad. I haven't seen a new VT story around here probably in more than a year!
