Cheating Again

Yes, I do actually have important things to write, but I can't see when I cry, so they all just have to wait until I'm ready to get it all out of me. All is well, in fact it is wonderful (no that does not mean I am pregnant and holding out on you), don't worry!

I stole this from Karen at One Small Apartment
(and yes, I think I did it last year too, but people weren't really reading me then.)

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? My collection is quite large. I have to keep the used rolls to prove to Jenn they are all gone, or else I am not allowed to buy more.

2. Real tree or Artificial? This year it will be real. But that is a whole nother story that involves tears and I already told you I'm not in the mood for them this morning.

3. When do you put up the tree? When we used fake trees it was Thanksgiving night....now that we will be using real, I have no idea.

4. When do you take the tree down? Um...fake, whenever I got around to it. Real...by New Years Day

5. Do you like eggnog? gag, Lyz can have my serving.

10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Mail, but I don't think I'm doing them this year.

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? After Christmas

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Yes. I'm a regifter. I admit it.

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Dad's Sausage Gravy!!

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer's? you know dasher and dancer and prancer and vixen comet and cupid and donder and blitzen, but to you recall, the most famous reindeer of allllllll...

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning?PJ's get opened Christmas Eve, everything else Chrismas Day.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? Nothing. I love Christmas. Well, not as much this year as past, but I love it!

23. Favorite ornament theme or color? I love my world's ugliest Christmas ornament. Stayed tuned, she will have a blog post all to herself once she has been hung on the tree!
