Getting to Know Your Friends (Christmas!)
GEORGIANA DANIELS posted this fun "get to know you" on her blog and I stole it to play along!
Here we go! Ho, ho, ho! (I've posted some fun new pics along the way just for kicks!)
1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper!! Its more fun to tear apart. =)
2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial! I never had a real tree growing up so I have this weird, self-inflicted fear of a squirrel flying out ala CHRISTMAS VACATION or the needles covering my living room floor or bugs attacking me in my sleep or me sneezing 24/7 from allergies or the whole thing tipping over cuz the trunk was infested with termites or...
3. When do you put up the tree? Weekend after Thanksgiving
4. When do you take the tree down? When I'm off work for New Years!
5. Do you like eggnog? Yucky yucky.
6. Favorite gift received as a child? I remember loving my pink bicycle with streamers, and the super cool doll houses my daddy built for me and my sister by hand. But I think my favorite would be the year I got my horse and for Christmas (just a week or two later!) I got a ton of stuff for him - buckets, brushes, a saddle, a halter, blanket, etc.
7. Hardest person to buy for? My husband and my dad and grandfather - men in general!!!

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? The traffic and crowds trying to shop when I am!!! lol
23. Favorite ornament theme or color? I think the white treees with the bright teal, turquoise and hot pink ornaments are awesome but Hubby would never let me get away with that. lol Our tree is an artificial, pre-lit with white lights and I decorate with a hodgepodge of ornaments collected over the years, all fun ones, mostly from Hallmark.
