Merry Christmas!!

christmas-tree  I hope you all are having a wonderful Christmas. It certainly is a white Christmas here. So I am wishing you safe travels and lots of good time with family and friends. Most of all I hope you have time to take a moment and ponder the miracle that is God coming to Earth as a baby so we could spend eternity with him. So amazing.

I will be taking a little bloggy break. I am sure I will pop up from time to time, and will be hanging out at Twitter (DiaperDiaries), but mostly I am going to focus on good quality time with the fam. But when I come back one of my most favorite blogging challenges is coming back with me. I need a refresher and many of you have asked for it to come back. So you have that to look forward to ;)

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?  Mostly wrapping paper with a few gift bags sprinkled in

2. Real tree or Artificial?   I grew up with fake trees, but when I got married you would have thought I told my hubby I deep fried kitties at Christmas. So now we have a real one

3. When do you put up the tree?  Weekend after Thanksgiving. No exceptions :)

4. When do you take the tree down?  Usually it is dying a slow death so it comes down pretty shortly after Christmas. Definitely by New Years

5. Do you like eggnog?  Ew, no

6. Favorite gift received as a child?  I got a doll that I could strap onto my feet and dance with. I loved her

7. Hardest person to buy for?  My father-in-law hands down. He is impossible so it is gift certificate for all holidays

8. Easiest person to buy for?  Hmm, I am not sure. I can usually come up with something pretty good for the hubby

9. Do you have a nativity scene?  Two. One the kids are allowed to touch and play with and one they can’t

10. Mail or email Christmas cards?  Mail most definitely. And I do a Christmas letter. I love getting Christmas letters

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received?  I truly can’t think of anything. So that is pretty good huh?

12. Favorite Christmas Movie?  It’s A Wonderful Life. When I met the hubby he hadn’t seen it. I paused, but married him anyway.

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas?  Usually sometime around Black Friday, but I don’t do Black Friday. I do most of my shopping online.

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present?  I don’t think so

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?  Pretty much anything sweet. I love Christmas cookies.

16. Lights on the tree?  White lights for me

17. Favorite Christmas song?  Oh Holy Night. Gives me chills everytime

18.Travel at Christmas or stay home?  We used to travel every year and it was so stressful. Now all our family is in one place so that is heavenly. Unless it is one of those years we head to the Caribbean. Man I am missing those years.

19. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?  Doubtful

20. Angel on the tree top or a star?  Star

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning?  Growing up we usually did one on Christmas Eve. Now we typically go to my FILs for Christmas Eve so we save all the presents for Christmas morning.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year?  There is some phenomenally bad Christmas music out there. Have you ever listened to the country station on Christmas. Awful.

23. Favorite ornament theme or color?  Our Christmas decorations are a turquoise blue. But I love all my ornaments. I collect them whenever we go on vacation.

24. Favorite for Christmas dinner?  We often fondue. I love that.

25. What do you want for Christmas this year?  Selfish answer= and ITouch. But really I just love that I have such a wonderful healthy family and such a great group of friends. So I really already got the best gifts of all.

Merry Christmas!!!


  1. merry christmas!! :)

  2. I ALSO married a husband who had never seen ‘it’s a wonderful life.’ I ALSO collect ornaments on vacation. I ALSO *heart* christmas letters even though everyone else pretends to hate them. And I ALSO am planning to steal this meme for my blog post today. So see, we really do have lots in common.

    I, however, DO like most country music (even the christmas kind… note I said MOST not all), and I love eggnog, especially in my starbucks. and although I have white lights on my tree, I wish they were colored. so we’re not the SAME person. :)

    merry christmas to you, too!
