Christmas Tagged

I do have LOTS of pictures to post. But I will post them later. I just thought this tag was cute and I could answer it quickly.

1. Wrapping paper or Gift bags? Wrapping paper. I try to avoid bags at all costs but sometimes its a must. I usually go buy a box to put it in so I can still wrap it.

2. Real or Artificial tree? Artificial (this year). I insisted on real our first Christmas in our new home...then it fell over at 3 am one morning and broke almost every ornament I had. Not to mention the needles that went flying and covered our living room. So my husband now insists on artificial.

3. When do you put up the tree? Around Thanksgiving. My deadline is Dec.1.

4. Do you have a Nativity Scene? No. Although I am in the market of buying a really nice one one day. I want one for the dining room buffet table.

5. Photo card or Traditional? Photo.

6. Clear or Colored Lights? Clear.

7. Favorite Christmas song? O Holy Night.

8. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? Nope.

9. Angel or Star on top of tree? Neither. Giant bow.

10. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Wrapped!!!

11. Do you hang mistletoe? No, but I would love to. It would have to be real mistletoe though. And I never come across real mistletoe while shopping. Where can you buy real mistletoe?

12. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? Oh my sister ruined it for me when I was around 9 or so. It was Christmas Eve and I was going to sleep like a "good little girl" so Santa would come and even though I was beginning to question the logistics of how Santa worked, I still believed. My sister said, "Carrie, you know Santa doesn't really exist right?" 20 years later with kids....Santa still exists at my house.

Sam's has a really beautiful nativity set- or at least, they have had it the past several years. I haven't been this year. I have it and a set of carolers that is pretty too.

PS- I haven't taken the kids to see santa either. There was one at Adler's preschool and he wouldn't get too close to him, so I am not too worried about it!

What the Hell??? You have so seriously made this up in your pretty little head. I never ever ever told you any such thing!! If anyone on this planet is a "Christmas Freak" it's me - and I would never in a million years ruin anything for anyone!! As a matter of fact, Mom threatened my life if I did ruin it for you. So, I used to lay in bed and ask you if you heard the noises on the roof (hooves and jingle bells,etc..) I think you are seriously DELUSIONAL if you think I told you that!!!
