I haven't been blogging often enough for some people's tastes...so, here we are:

Hot Chocolate or Egg nog.

Neither! Yuck! I love chocolate but hot chocolate? Nu-uh.

Does Santa wrap the presents or just set them under the tree.

Wraps 'em! Unless they are too big (like the train table Santa brought for the boys this year :p)

Colored or white lights on the tree/house?

I like both but this year it was all white as I was lazy and bought a pre-lit tree (please don't gasp in horror but I didn't even put any ornaments on it this year!)

Do you hang mistletoe?

I have but didn't this year (sensing a trend yet?)

When do you decorate?

The day/weekend after Thanksgiving usually :)

What is your favorite holiday dish?

Anything I didn't have to make (except green bean casserole - blech!)

Favorite Holiday memory as a child?

Hmmmm, I honestly couldn't say. I have all good memories of holidays as a child!

How and when did you learn the truth about Santa?

Don't remember! Weird?

Do you open gifts on Christmas Eve?

Usually PJs for the boys and maybe Carlos and I exchange a gift or five because we just can't wait any longer :)

What kind of cookies do you set out for Santa on Christmas Eve?

This was our first year leaving cookies for Santa...chocolate chip this year (and spoiled milk...Carlos, errrr, Santa, was none too pleased :p)

Snow! Love it or hate it?

Love it if it starts Christmas Eve after we are in for the night and melts the day after Christmas for the rest of the season :p

Can you ice skate?

Sure :p

Do you remember your favorite gift?

Wow Maureen! I found out I was preggo with Jake that Christmas as well! Christmas morning 2001 was my favorite Christmas gift :)

What’s your favorite holiday dessert?


What’s your favorite holiday tradition?

All of them...I'm all about traditions (but really, only at Christmas) :D

What is your favorite Christmas Carol?

Don't think I could pick just one...maybe the theme song from Charlie Brown Christmas ;)

Are they fake or real? Er, I mean...What type of tree?

I prefer real but we've done fake for the most part. (And anyone who has met me knows that there is no way they are fake :p)

Satisfied now Maureen??

    Um....yes I am ;) BUT....you know I'm not the only one waiting for you to update your blog....plus, you said you had nothing interesting....so I gave you something to help :) LOL!

    How funny we both found out we were pg on the same day...and they are only days apart.....cool beans :)
    Sour milk....hmmmm....blech!
    You need to go buy some hot chocolate...we like swiss miss. Put 2 packets into a mug, add the hot water but not to the top, add a bit of milk, and a shot of butterscotch schnapps...whatever you like....a dollop (1st time I've ever used that word LOL) of whipped cream (or a squirt from a can.....J loves squirting it directly into his mouth) and wahlah :)YUMMMMMY! J loves it minus the shot but with lots of mini mah-a-me-ows!
    Nothing wrong with a simple Christmas...beats the heck out of having to clean up needles and putting the mountains of ornaments/decorations away! J rearranged all of our ornaments the entire 3 weeks the tree has been up :P
    Thanks for sharing E :)

    Fallin on the floor laughing at the fake thing! Right there with you. It's because when I started getting boobs, I was so embarrassed I used to pray to God He'd make them go away. Unfortunately, that's one of the prayers He answered. Kendra

    BTW, who ever decided it was a good idea to dump mushroom soup in green beans?!!! Who ever decided it was a good idea to put mushroom soup in a can? And who ever decided it was a good idea to make a soup out of mushrooms?
