Christmas Tag!

Mandy G. tagged me so long ago, I am really embarrassed that it took me so long to complete this post. I also thought I would add the picture Max took of the gingerbread house the boys made last week! They are quite the architects.
Here is a picture of them fighting over the candy!

1. EggNog or Hot Chocolate? I love my mom's chocolate eggnog. In fact I may make some this weekend!

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Both

3. Colored lights on house/tree or white lights? Usually white lights on tree, but we moved to colored this year and colored outside also.

4. Do you hang mistletoe? Nope

5. When do you put your decorations up? The Wednesday before Thanksgiving we do the tree, and then I try to put more up as I have time. I will admit I haven't been as good about putting them up this year!

6. What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)? I am with Mandy G. Chicken-n-noodles!!

7. Favorite holiday memory as a child? I have so many, but they mostly involve getting together with my family and I especially remember the years that we received our Nintendo and the year of the trampoline, those were the best gifts.

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? Honestly, I don't remember

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?Yes, we rotate who we spend Christmas day and Christmas Eve with so we always either open gifts with Chad's parents or mine.

10. How do you decorate your tree? Light and ornaments, no theme or anything. The kids do most of it!

11. Snow! Love it or dread it? If it is just snow and not ice, than I love it. If it is nice outside, snowy and not windy, I would go out and play with the kids!

12. Can you ice skate? It has been a long time since I have done this, but you know me I try just about anything!

13. Do you remember your favorite gift? I remember getting a trampoline that I had asked for forever, and I remember my Nintendo!

14. What is the most important thing about the holidays for you? I love spending time with family and passing that tradition on to my kids.

15. What is your favorite holiday dessert? If it involves some kind of sugar, than I probably like it!

16. What is your favorite holiday tradition? Reading the Christmas Story out of the bible before we open presents.

17. What tops your Christmas tree? A while star.

18. Which do you prefer-giving or receiving? Giving

19. What is your favorite Christmas song? Mary Did You Know

20. Candy Canes-yum or yuck? Candy Canes are OK, but the Starburst ones are YUM, YUM

21. What do you want for Christmas? Nothing really, Chad and I aren't exchanging this year.

22. Do you attend an annual Christmas party? We attend several Christmas get togethers. Our Sunday School Party was last Friday night, and it was a blast!

23. Do you dress up on Christmas or wear PJs? PJ's

24. Do you own a Santa hat? Yes, the boys have a couple thanks to mimi

25. Who do you normally spend Christmas with? Rotating between our families.
