Because my sister said so...

I've been tagged, so before it just becomes ridiculously past Christmas ;)
here goes....

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? hot chocolate...with whipped cream...yum

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Wraps all of them....

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? White on the house (when we put them out...whoops, not this year!), colored on the tree.

4. Do you hang mistletoe? No, but i just might.....I like those mistletoe balls...cuuuute.

5. When do you put your decorations up? Right after Thanksgiving.

6. What is your favorite holiday dish? OOOOH, it's all yummy. Scalloped potatoes and carrots, and the mushrooms in cream sauce.....delish.

7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child? Um....probably just the anticipation....the butterflies in the tummy, the excitement.

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? I don't really remember a "moment", probably when one of my parents bought a "santa" gift when I was with them ;)

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? No, Colin and I don't, but my boylies get jammie pants, and a book. This year jammie pants, and a gingerbread house kit ;)

10. What kind of cookies does Santa get set out for him? Sugar cookies (and milk), also we normally leave carrots for the reindeer, however this year mommy choked and there were nooo carrots, Jack wrote a letter for Santa though explaining, it was adorable....don't worry, I'm scrapping it ;)

11. Snow love it or dread it? LOVE it. Wish we'd get some...just don't love driving in it....nope, not at all...

12. Can you ice skate? Heck yeah, I dated a hockey player in high school ;)

13. Do you remember your favorite gift? As a child? or now? My lens for my camera last year was way up there....

14. What's the most important thing about the Holidays for you? Celebrating Christ's birth, and being surrounded by loved ones.

15. What is your favorite Holiday Dessert? fudge (and sugar cookies)

16. What's your favorite Christmas tradition? Spoiling my boys, and spending the evening with my family

17. What tops your tree? An angel

18. Which do you prefer? Giving or receiving? Well, everyone loves receiving gifts right?
I think giving is the BEST though...

19. What is your favorite Christmas carol? O Holy it.

20. What's the best thing to do with candy canes? Stick 'em in hot chocolate!!! <-- Hanni is so right on this one!! <---I'm w/ Gabbby and Hanni on this one ;)

21. How many of your Christmas gifts are you hand making? 2 or 3....Gabby's coffee mug...does that count? and some frames for my MIL and SIL.....only if I get it done before they come though, otherwise 1.

Ok, My hubby is still home, so I will write more tomorrow when I'm bored and husbandless.
Hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas ;) xxxe
