Christmas Meme

I found this at Elaine's house. Why don't you play along too.

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper.

2. Real tree or Artificial? Real, but after this we may try the artificial next year.

3. When do you put up the tree? We usually purchase the tree from the Air Academy Band, (Not this year, see link above) they have one day to pick up, usually the first Saturday in December.

4. When do you take the tree down? New Year's Day.

5. Do you like eggnog? No, but Carter will drink gallons of it. I have a GREAT eggnog cookie recipe.

6. Favorite gift received as a child? I loved the dollhouse my grandparents made for me. I still have it. GI Joe lives there now.

7. Hardest person to buy for? My brother.

8. Easiest person to buy for? Hayden. He's 4, he is happy with anything.

9. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes, I bought one at a super dooper clearance sale. I don't like it, but it will do until I inherit the GORGEOUS set my grandparents painted. I do not want it until the kids are a little bigger and the risk for damage is much smaller.

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? They kids can open one present on Christmas Eve...Just this year Carter has figured out that it is always new pajamas. Have to look good for pictures.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? The parking lot. Any and ever parking lot and the ninnys who think they are much more important than the rest of us.

G.I. Joe has his own doll house?? Sweet.

I cracked up about the WW cookbook from your ex's mother. That's just WRONG!

Glad you did the meme - it's fun to read these!
