Christmas Tag!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper of course. I really love to wrap presents too, and it’s so much more fun to unwrap a present rather than take it out of a bag. However, I’m not wrapping too many of Jacoby’s gifts because he isn’t old enough to understand. Ha ha. I have some cute Christmas boxes that I’m putting his presents in.
2. Real tree or Artificial? I love love real trees because of the way they smell, but they’re messy, you have to water them, and my least favorite thing is that you have to put lights on them every year. I really love pre-lit trees, so much less work.
3. When do you put up the tree? Soon after Thanksgiving!
4. When do you take the tree down? Just a few days after Christmas, and the taking down is never fun.
5. Do you like eggnog? Yes I do! I also love eggnog milkshakes!
6. Favorite gift received as a child? Probably my American Girl doll, Samantha, or else my water baby.
7. Hardest person to buy for? My dad, Tyler, Tyler’s dad. Oh geez, boys are tricky that’s for sure.
8. Easiest person to buy for? My sisters, my mom, and especially Jacoby.
9. Do you have a nativity scene? No, but I love the Willow Tree nativity. That’s definitely in my wish list.
10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mailed! E-mailing Christmas cards is lame, I have never been a fan of e-mailed cards of any kind, it just doesn’t mean as much. Everyone loves to get a letter or card in the mail, it’s like a little present.
11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? A Razor Scooter. I cannot remember how old I was, I think middle school, but I wasn’t into them at all, so I had no idea why “Santa” brought me a dumb scooter. Ha ha. I probably rode it twice. I’m sorry, I sound very ungrateful, but honestly!
12. Favorite Christmas Movie? Oh I have a bunch that I love: The Santa Claus, It’s a Wonderful Life, and Home Alone.
13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Black Friday
14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? No, I don’t think so.
15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Soup, fudge, homemade chocolates, lifesaver book, but my favorite are peppermint Tootsie Pops.
16. Lights on the tree? Yes, that makes such a difference.
17. Favorite Christmas song? Breath of Heaven, by Amy Grant and Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer are good ones!
18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? I have never traveled for Christmas, luckily Tyler and my family live so close so we don’t have to travel too far.
19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? Yes, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixon, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, and Rudolph. Singing while I named them.
20. Angel on the tree top or a star? I don’t like very many of the angels out there, so I would definitely go with a star.
21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Open a couple Christmas Eve and the rest Christmas Day.
22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? I hate going to town when it’s really busy, I don’t like to drive when it takes forever to get somewhere.
23. Favorite ornament theme or color? RED! We have big red bells, Wrapped Presents, and red ball ornaments. RED is the color.
24. Favorite for Christmas dinner? I don’t really care, soup is yummy or ham and baked potatoes.
25. Favorite family Christmas tradition? Well growing up we always picked out a Hallmark ornament, and I always got ornaments that did things, my favorite one you pull on a string and the bear does a snow angel. I’m excited to get Jacoby’s first ornament. For the past four years or so we’ve started doing a big party with my immediate family and we have fondue, play Bunko, watch a movie, and have a really yummy steak dinner. We don’t eat until after the movie so it’s usually really late, it’s been a really fun tradition. I love Christmas and being with family.

Merry Christmas Everyone! I tag Steph, my mom, Lyndsi, Angie, and Jenn!

Yeah, It is fun to look at the pictures! I haven't gotten them all back yet. She said hopefully this week! Yes, I went to Boise. The boys did pretty good! It was alot more physical than they are used to, but whenever they go to Boise they should just expect that! Jason played really well on Saturday. He has been really sick but he is finally getting better and starting to play better too! Its been so fun to watch him! I saw Olivia at the Shelley game. She is such a cute girl. This is a cute tag. We need to go together sometime soon! I've missed ya! I got an e mail from you today at my onewest one. so i guess it worked. but you can always send it to my hotmail one if the other one is being wierd. Well Miss, have a great day! And let me know when you come down here and I will make sure to catch up with you!
